    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.

    Very good

    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.

    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.

    Good

    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!

    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.

    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)

    Fabulous

    I liked the valet parking and the very friendly staff. Also the view out our window was spectacular!

    The tonic water in my G&T was flat! The overall food quality was not high. The fish at the sushi restaurant could have been fresher. The red wine available at the happy hour on the Gold Floor was nasty and expensive.

    The room we had 646 overlooked Sulphur mountain which was snowy at the time so looked great. The Castle Pantry is excellent value for money. The pools area is all included and well worth a swim as are the Yoga classes.

    I did ask for a newspaper in the morning that never arrived but other than that, it was all a uniformly excellent stay.

    My grown daughter and I really loved the room and the history of the hotel. We were appreciative of the professionalism of the staff.

    As I have discussed with Spa representatives, the cost of the spa was prohibitive, however I was provided with 2 courtesy passes to the spa for future visits. Thank you for that.

    Room was very small. Had top floor with amazing views. But the slanted walls made room even smaller. Nice large bathroom.

    Could have been bigger room. Bed was all that really fit in the room. And it was an upgraded room that we paid an upgrade fee at check in.

    Superb

    Bed was very comfortable. Value a little over priced. We were in a small room on second floor to start and it was not worth the price being charged for it. That said, the staff were outstanding! They had learned of a medical issue we had that sent us to a hopital in Calgary the first night we had checked in. They responded by upgrading us to a larger (more comfortable) room for our second/final night to make up for our lost time at the hotel. They did not need to do this for us and we were incredibly grateful. Every single staff member we encountered, along with the wonderful history and location of the hotel made our stay unforgettable.

    Everything onsite was very highly priced. We understand we were at a Fairmont and a very unique location, but pricing on most things (especially room service items) were ridiculously high.
