I stay here every time I come to Edmonton and have yet to be disappointed. I arrived in the early hours of the morning on this occasion and was greeted as ever with a cheerful smile and great efficiency. The room was up to the same great standards, and I don't know what they use as air freshener in this hotel, but I just love the smell. After a long hot shower I climbed into bed and had a great night sleep, followed by a breakfast meeting in the hotel the following day. The only criticism I would make of this hotel is the wifi - Presidents Club members can get free wifi to read e mails etc, but this no longer lets them stream, in order to do this they now have to pay for an upgrade. I resent having to pay for wifi these days, and actively seek out hotels that provide free high speed wifi as when you are on the road this is important to be able to wind down as well as for business purposes. This, I have to say , would make me think twice about seeing what else is around in the area as at the sort of prices that Fairmonts charge, you can find great hotels with free high speed wifi all over the world. its time they woke up to what a turn off this can be for business travellers and that they risk loosing loyal customers for the sake of a few dollars.
