We loved everything about the Fairmont. Except its location!
Whilst it was only a short drive from the airport, we seemed to spend and awful long time in taxis going anywhere. Looking at the taxi meters, it seemed we could easily clock up 30km in a taxi, which we found very shocking.
Food in the restaurants we outstanding and service was top notch and all staff tried very hard to make us welcome. The hard sell for an upgrade on arrival was the only annoying thing where we got the sell of the benefits and then after what must have been 3-4 minutes were told we would need to pay. We said "no".
