I stayed at this hotel for a conference and it was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Getting to stay in the castle of the rockies, filled with such history and where royalty and celebrities alike flock to, was amazing!
We were given a room with two double beds. The room was small and dated. There were stains on the carpet (out of the 80s colour) and the bathroom was a bit rough looking. However, the beds were comfortable and linen clean.
Customer service was top notch and what I expected for a Fairmont property!!
The hotel is an absolute maze and I reccomend taking a couple hours just to explore. There are literally dozens of shops, restaurants and things to see/do.
The highlight of the experience for me was the spa experience. WOW!!! If you have a chance to visit the spa, do it!! It is pricey, but well worth it.
Parking is a bit steep ($25/night) and I would encourage you to sign up for the Fairmount 'presidents club' to get free wifi access (otherwise its $15).
If I had been paying out of pocket, would I have stayed there.... probably not. The rooms need to be updated to justify the high prices, however, if you are looking to experience a part of history (and have the coin) go for it!!
