Family vacation

Toronto, Canada

We stayed here during the Calgary stampede which was perfect due to its location conveniently located in the heart of downtown Calgary. The overall hotel itself was beautiful, the furniture and architecture gave off a very fancy vibe. The rooms were newly updated, gym and pool was fantastic, and the bar was perfect place to grab some drinks. I have stayed at many Fairmonts and this one definitely lived up to the hype I have been giving this hotel chain.

The W Calgary??

Short and sweet. Stayed here for 2 night last weekend. Enjoying the city and hoping for a little oasis to retreat to. Definitely more mirage than oasis. Both nights had huge lobby parties that spilled over into the lounge. Apparently no reserved tables for hotel guests. Couldn’t use parts of my own hotel essentially, or the two free welcome drinks from being a club member. Nice free perk that’s impossible to use. Room had a bed though which was nice. As a side note the valet experience is also off-putting with most cars double-parked on a busy street and staff often hard to find. Drive the extra hour to Banff if u want to stay in a real Fairmont.
