I've stayed here many, many times. In the past I've never really looked forward to it. The hotel had a dated feel. The newly renovated rooms have changed my view and I'd gladly stay in one of those rooms! The common areas have an old school decor theme which is nice, but not really my thing. Staff, like at many...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 19 January 2017 via mobile

We stayed here for a week in August 2016 in a family room with two double beds. Check-in was swift. The room was huge, clean and elegantly decorated. The beds were supremely comfortable. Although the hotel is situated downtown the room was very quiet and we heard little noise even when we slept with the window open. The only slight...

The Hotel speaks for itself...Beautiful. The Staff were all amazing, from Valet to Check in, to the staff in the Lounge. Also, the food was delicious!! The room was exactly as advertised and the bed was VERY comfortable.

Beautifully renovated property, it has the newest furnishings of any Fairmont I have stayed in. Some room configurations make no sense like the signature room where you need to turn your head to see the TV from the bed. But I most are acceptable. Bathrooms are on the small side unless you get a suite. We stayed in both a...

My spouse and I stayed here January 2017 for a hockey game. The hotel was a great location, we were able to walk to the Saddledome and nearby restaurants (Red's Diner is incredible for breakfast!). Check in and out was quick and friendly. The bed was very comfortable and the pool was very relaxing. I would stay here again.

It was all fine. The check-in process was painless, the room was clean, the amenities were all fine in the room. The weird thing is that there were no vending machines in the hotel. So the only way I could get something to drink was to use the (expensive) mini-bar or order room service. I know it's a small thing...
