We arrived at the Fairmont at about midnight. Although there was no one at the front doors, we found our way into the hotel. This is the first hotel that I've been in that you need to go up a short escalator before you get to the front desk. Luckily we didn't have that much luggage so we took our bags with us. The man at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. And he remained that way throughout our stay.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The interior of the hotel was very ornate and warm and welcoming. I also saw a couple of people with dogs, so I'm assuming that it is a pet friendly hotel. We had breakfast at the Georgian (I think that's what it was called) almost every morning. The staff there was also very friendly and focused.
They have a heated indoor pool, which unfortunately, I didn't get to use. Also, they have a nice spa area. Pikes Market is about four blocks away. Westlake Mall is about four blocks away too. There's a Borders and a Sephora about two blocks away.
The area around the hotel seemed safe. We walked around a lot both during the day and during the evening. We didn't feel uneasy or nervous at all walking around at night.
