Amazing time at the Fairmont
INCREDIBLE HOTEL STAY. Currently undergoing renovations, but we never ran into/heard the construction workers. The staff was accommodating and courteous and prompt. We had a tiny issue which was immediately resolved by the assistant manager. The room was beautiful and we had a view. The bed was comfortable and the size of the room was perfect. The location is close to everything- we walked everywhere. (We were sad we didn’t try the bikes or their town car) We WILL be back!!! Thanks, Fairmont!!!!

Gorgeous hotel. The hotel is under renovation at the moment, but everything else was perfect. The service was impeccable and my room was clean, spacious, and beautiful. The crab cakes at Shuckers downstairs are wonderful, as well as the incredible desserts at the coffee spot on the first floor, but there are lots of incredible food options within walking distance. Will definitely come back.

Good 6.0
Construction. Disrupted.
Due to ongoing remodel, much of what makes this hotel enjoyable - the grand hall, dining - was closed. Major disappointment. We noticed they were reserving rooms for $164 on their website, though we paid full.

Great experience: the hotel rooms are huge! very comfortable bed, clean bathroom. Only downside for me was the showerhead that was old and not possible to move.
