I've stayed at numerous Fairmont properties and this property seems conspicuously misaligned with the brand's appeal. Room ~ I was on the top floor overlooking the pool. That was nice but the room itself was tired and dated. The sofa bed seemed like a relic and was fitting of a dusty highway motel. No kidding, the springs felt like they...

Check-in is very meticulous, they keep good notes. We sent a box of china ahead and it was waiting for us. Very comfortable bed. Adequate room size and nice furnishings. Robes are always...

The Fairmont has a nice location close to many local businesses. The hotel lobby and restaurant are well appointed. The rooms are very nice and the bed is very comfortable. One very interesting fact is that this hotel maintains its own bee hives that help provide pollination and the honey is sold at the hotel...very good!

My husband and I had a wonderful experience at the Fairmont. The reception staff were friendly. The room was large. This luxury hotel was reasonably priced on a weekend special. The valet parking service was quick and courtesy. providing us with directions & opening doors. You must use valet parking.

The rooms smell musky. The air is kind of heavy. Almost feels like an old folks home. Also beware, this place charges $11/ day for sloooooooooowwwwww wifi. If you want full speed, they want $21/ day. Absolutely ridiculous.
