We stayed at the Fairmont over Valentines weekend, which also happens to be my boyfriend's birthday. The hotel itself was just OK. When we arrived we pulled up to the front of the hotel and went inside to check-in and find out about parking. The front desk informed us that they do indeed have valet parking - for $25 per day - and that we should speak with the doorman. My only complaint of the entire weekend would be that doorman. Our car was parked directly in front of the hotel about 7 cars down and when we tried to give him our keys he said, no that's too far away. He told us we would have to go move it ourselves around to the side door of the hotel. The street was one way, it was rush hour and this was just a hassle we didn't not need or want upon our arrival in Montreal! I stood in the hotel lobby for at least 20 minutes while my boyfriend served as valet, it was not appreciated at all.
The hotel itself wasn't bad - they certainly don't go out of their way however.
We got engaged though so it was still the best weekend ever!
