I've stayed at the Fairmont the Norfolk hotel twice now and it's just amazing. The hotel itself has so much character, from the breakfast terrace area to the inner courtyard (which most rooms overlook) to all the old photos and memorabilia which are dotted around the hotel.
At the same time, there is nothing old about the facilities of the hotel. The rooms are top quality, the bathrooms are modern, there's a nice desk space for working, the wifi speed is decent and the beds are really luxurious!
Breakfast here is not to be missed, there's everything you could want, and I love how they bring you your own plunger of coffee. Room service was also excellent, I wasn't feeling very well one evening and I highly recommend their chicken soup :)
