We've been to Fairmont at least a dozen times, but just recently started staying at the resort hotel. We've stayed in the main building and in the older building out back. I do prefer the main building as it was renovated more recently than the other one.
The rooms are clean, and usually have a fridge. They supply bathrobes and we just wear those over to the pools. If there is a line, you can skip it because you just tell the staff which room number you are in. With the hotel price, the pools are included, so you can go in and out all day, every day you are there. We usually pay about $150 per night, and for a family of 4, factor in the cost of the pools, it saves us a lot of money.
I do prefer to go in the winter - it's really relaxing to sit out in the cold, in a nice hot tub. The cold pools are warm enough to use then too. Summer is nice, busier than winter, but still worth it. We love to stay until the pool closes at the end of the night and just walk back to our room and go to sleep. I doubt we'll stay anywhere else now that we have found the Lodge.
The only thing I would like is an included breakfast, but they do have a nice breakfast buffet and menu and a coffee shop on site.
