We were staying at the hotel as part of our anniversary celebration.With taxes of 16%, our room came to almost $400.00 US. We were given an upgrade(Free to join President's club) to a two room traditional suite but in an older area on the 5th floor. The carpet and furnishing were very worn in the room and the drapes looked sad. Bath adequate(no counter space) but small( plumbing moaned loudly when turned on). It appeared the renovations bragged on were put into the large, marbled floor lobby, bar lounge, etc. The highlight was the 2 dogs who are dressed in Fairmont vests and who lazily welcome guests by the consierge desk. Staff not plentiful or seeing to the personal touches we have had at other hotels, including Fairmonts. Walked to the indoor pool and fitness area just to see. OK. Ate dinner on the main shopping street and enjoyed a walk down to the water...but due to construction, you will need to walk around it. If time Stanley Island, a long walk or short cab ride, highly recommended. By the way, all our taxi drivers were very courteous. Fare from airport to Fairmont was $28.00 US
Very expensive shops share the city block with the Fairmont and Tiffany's is right across the street. I commented at the President's desk as to the very worn furnishings as we left and she said she would make note of it.
