Afternoon tea in the same room is very nice, the outdoor jacuzzi is perfect for the crisp mornings and evenings, we noticed that Canadians use the word 'Perfect' a great deal.

                Food there was mediocre at best.

                No tub in the very small bathroom and very expensive food. The large indoor pool was not very busy.

              • The mountain views were spectacular and the Maple grill in town was exceptional as well. Hotel was very nice and service was superb. The room was fantastic, huge and for such a great facility the food did not meet expectation. The heated outdoor pool was especially fabulous.

                The staff from the front doors to the lounge were not helpful at all, the bed was comfortable, not as comfortable as other Fairmonts I have stayed in and the small fridges were not set at an appropiate temperature causing the loss of medication.

              • More than just a hotel and quick service. Bathroom was small and did not compliment the beautiful room.
