I believe it was standard check in time 3pm and checkout was 11. You would have to confirm with the hotel and I’m sure they can accommodate you for an early check in and late check out but possibly for a fee.

Is the pool open in late September/early October? What is the temperature that time of year? Thankyou
Best time of the year to be at the Fairmont! Weather perfect....and no kids! Ask conceige at hotel about pool temp. Have fun...and spend the extra $ for a Cabana Room!
