Toronto, Canada

We have stayed in quite a few Fairmont properties (NYC, Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Quebec City, Toronto) and many more Club Accor properties (Paris, Sydney, Buenos Aires, Toronto) but this may be my very favourite one of all. From the moment we checked in early, at 10.30am having ducked out of Toronto standby on a 7.15am flight to escape the impending ice storm, to our departure, in the snow, three days later, we had a perfect stay. We were checked in by Daniel who offered us a suite (with all my remaining suite upgrades- how sad we are with the demise of the Fairmont Platinum program, more on that later) but we elected to keep our magnificent 15th floor harbour view room because quite frankly, a view on a holiday is much better than a kitchen and dining room table. If travelling with kids in tow we may have opted for the suite with jetted tub but were very satisfied with the room with a view. Our room was ready for us when we arrived which was a huge treat and made our 4am wake up to go on standby for an early departure very well worth it. The best feature of this hotel (and there are many) was the lobby. It is very reminiscent of the Sangri-la in Toronto and apparently has the same owner. The beautiful area is replete with Gianni Versace outfits in bird cages and glass booths which are on display at various points in the room. The fireplace is huge and although not very functional from a warmth point of view especially when the doors were open to the -5C weather, provides a lovely centralized place to sit and enjoy the nearly constant live music. From piano to classical guitar and a very sweet singer of Ed and George music on our last morning, we spent many happy hours just enjoying the music and the passing parade of interesting people. The only downside is the cocktails are on the pricey side but at least served with cashews and olives by very nice staff (a little shout out to Charlotte!). Jacqueline at the concierge desk was full of useful information on restaurants in the city close by to the hotel and we took her advice on two of them, Miku and our favourite of the weekend, Nightingale, which is right opposite the hotel and well worth a visit. We used up our complimentary certificates (on sushi and morning coffee in the very nice coffee bar) which expire at the end of February and will not be replaced under the new Club Accor takeover. We will miss the wonderful care Fairmont as a brand took of its platinum members, from suite and room upgrades to gift vouchers and champagne on check-in. It has ensured that we chose Fairmont as a brand if we had the option. Club Accor offers a room upgrade and a welcome drink on check in but certainly not at the Fairmont level. Back to the sushi- we had been to Miku which is renowned for its inventive sushi but we found the rolls we had at the Fairmont to be the best we had all weekend and the Motoyaki roll one of the best I've ever eaten. All in all this is a fabulous hotel, one of the most enjoyable weekends we've had in a while and we hope it is "see you again" rather than a once in a lifetime experience. Thanks to all the staff who helped make it such fun.

Fancy hotel

Orlando, Florida

It’s a fancy hotel I like the vibes and ambience. Good location. Food is ok but expensive. No free wifi. I like the service everybody seems so polite and courteous. Be prepared to pay extra for almost anything in this hotel including water and internet. Make sure to explore other restaurants around the area especially asian cuisine.
