    Everything! I felt pampered from the moment I entered the property.

  • 10.0

    I liked the location and scenery of the Hotel. The staff was very polite throughout my stay. The gym, pools, and other amenities were excellent.

    There was nothing not to like about the hotel in my opinion.

  • 7.4

    The President's Club floor - lounge, food, rooms, etc were awesome.

    We ended up with two separate reservations for this hotel (our doing). Thus two separate rooms. Our first night was in the Stanley Thompson wing. I would not recommend staying in this part of the hotel. However, when we moved to the President's Club floor it was like a completely different hotel.

  • 7.8

    The views were wonderful. Staff was super friendly and helpful. The ambiance of the hotel.

    Restaurants understaffed, resulting in slow to very slow service. The rooms were not well soundproofed, you could hear guests from the other room and in the hallway, and room entry doors when opened and closed made very loud noise. The mattress creaked whenever you got in and out and be aware bathrooms are extremely small.

  • 7.0

    The view is amazing. Hiking down the Bow river- fantastic! Our waitress for breakfast was very fun and kind! The staff who checked us in was very helpful. The hotel smelled wonderful!

    We have stayed in other Fairmonts and found the bedding and beds were fantastic ....but not here! No duvet- our sheets were thin and very worn. The bed rolled to the middle. We asked a staff person to replace a light bulb in the entry- never done. After waiting 40 years to be able to stay here - it was a sad visit for us. Over 500.00 to have this quality was very disappointing.

  • 5.8

    Power went out for 12 hours. Should have at least offered guest a free cup of coffee in am

  • 3.8

    Rundle Burger was good.

    The rooms are very run down at the Thompson side. Creepy elevators. Power went out and they did not compensate us or give us any discount. We couldn't shower and slept in a cold room. We had to drive out to get food. The phones and internet were out for our rooms also. When we went to the front lobby, they seemed to have some power for the main building.

  • 9.2

    Indoor and outdoor pool was great plus the view....

  • 7.0

    good

    size of room

  • 6.2

    High tea was excellent as was location of property. Staff courteous and helpful.

    I had requested a twin room as I was there with my Mum. This did not happen. The gentleman assisting our check in said he could 'upgrade' us to a bigger room to put in a pull out bed. I was extremely disappointed with the room and bed. The room was small and I was given what amounted to a camp bed. I paid almost $600 for the room (including the $60 'upgrade'). For this price and the reputation of the Hotel, I expect a certain amount of luxury which was not present. I could spend the same amount of money for a five star hotel in Las Vegas!

  • 7.0

    Room needs to be renovated

  • 9.2

    Excellent Staff, Amazing location!!!!

    For the hefty price of almost $700.00 a night the room should be perfect. Some of the furniture was chipped and the ceiling in the shower was falling down!!! A hamburger cost $25.00.

  • 10.0

    Outstanding property great restaurants

  • 10.0

    Everything was excellent

    My vacaction was to short

  • 10.0

    The house service (especially the housekeeper) is wonderful. She will organize your shoes and all personal care bottles

    It kept me waiting for 15 mins when i checked in at 6pm (i have already informed them we would arrive at 5)
