Fairmont Confident Trick in marble surroundings

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 9, 2012

Yes, another one, full of marble, flowers, smiling idle staff with a major hotel chain banner and a "5 stars rating"...!
Admire the entrance hall which looks like a very expensive bus terminal, that's what you'll finally pay for, everything else is just a farce.
Booked a three nights business stay in "Signature room" realizing that this was more expensive than my usual nice "Meridien" down the road but thought that, with the Fairmont signature... it was certainly worth it... Big mistake! I stayed until the end, hoping for a miracle which did not happen.
5 stars rating, 5 stars top prices... and...:
* nobody to take you to your room on arrival
* no daily newspaper offered
* the "free wi-fi" of the signature floor end up to be charged on yor bill!
* the private buttler does not exist but someone seats behind an empty desk next to the elevators and will eventually return your greetings if she feels like it
* room is large but bedding quality is average low
* maintenance is poor (if the temperature control of your shower doesn't operate at all, you will need to satisfy yourself with steam-hot luxury but will be given a lecture on how to use a water tap
All together a true Fairmont confident trick at 500usd per night... Stay clear!

Unique Quality: Some might appreciate the huge lobby, its marble and overall emptiness

Directions: Close to airport (and runways...)
