The hotel is likely an older property, but not older in the sense it was built during a grand era of luxury from the roaring 20's or the industrialist era. More like 60's, 70's, 80's era. The hotel itself is impressive in its spaciousness and cleanliness. The rooms were equally spacious and one of the largest rooms I've ever stayed in at any Fairmont. Beds were extraordinarily comfortable and the room was nearly flawless.
Now, the service staff from the front desk to the valets to the concierge, were less than impressive and that's being charitable. The front desk was surly and majority of employees in the lobby area seemed to be on the verge of a union strike. Now perhaps the only reason the service felt so poor was because typically my experience with Fairmont hotels was their exceptional service from top to bottom.
Internet service was average.
