              great service on their toes

              the room price should include free wyfy but charged 15.00 per day on top of room rate.

            • Family with children

              It is one of the best, most elegant, and comfortable airport transit hotels in the world; great views and the legendary Fairmont service and quality.

              I had a hard time finding the control panel for the rooms electronics, but that's being really picky

              Top Class Hotel. Excellent facilities. Staff brillant the Chef even created a dish for my daughter as she only eats certain things. The view is fascinating and despite being practically on the runway we were not disturbed by noise. Highly recommended and would definitely stay gain. Earns its reputation.

              I absolutely loved the bed. The bed was the most comfortable bed that I've ever slept in. I would love to have a bed like that at home and if the Fairmont staff would tell me how and what to buy I would do it immediately. I would then be broke but I'd have a fantastic bed! I also really liked the fact that the hotel is right in the airport and so it is extremely convenient. I liked the bathing suit (water) extractor and all the products in the change room. The view from the 13th floor was quite lovely and especially so if you like airplanes. The room was very quiet. The planes did not keep me awake. I heard nothing!

              I wasn't able to work the coffee machine and I tend to follow instructions to a t! So sadly I wasn't able to enjoy a nice cup of Kourig coffee. It took me quite awhile to find out how to turn the lights on (you use the phone) but once I found it - it's very handy! I didn't know what time check-out time was and didn't see it written anywhere but I left before noon!

              It was a great transit stop for my family to rest and recover from the long flight from Singpore prior to driving up to Whistle Mountains for our ski holidays.No shuttle service required to get to the Hotel cause is right at the Airport,very convenient and comfortable.

              Can't think of anything negative.....
