I've been stopping at the Holiday Inn at Fairmont for a few years now. This last time in January 08. It's the best that's on offer at Fairmont and as its right next to I90 its handy for a stop over on route to elsewhere as well as for those visiting Fairmont.
The hotel is not new and has recently been refurbished but still shows it's age in places, particularly in some of the bedrooms, but they're OK. The public areas are now much better and that is where the hotel scores. The bar and restaurant are good, good atmosphere in the bar and the restaurant, part of the Green Mill franchise, offers a good selection for both dinner and breakfast.
What makes a real difference is the service - the staff are friendly and efficient, great service and really make you feel welcome.
There's a pool, hot tub and gym to help wind down or exerercise if that's your thing.
No five stars but if you need to stay in Fairmont then the Holiday Inn is your best bet and good value.
