                The hotel was nice, but it would have been more enjoyable if parking was not $58.00 for the night. Also the bathroom needed to be updated a bit for example there was no fan in the shower so the room filled with steam leaving it impossible to finish getting ready and dry your hair in a room full of fog.

                I had booked for the wrong night but they still honored my reservation and found a room for us even though the hotel was fully booked. I really appreciated that.

                The hotel was fully booked and the lobby was full of people waiting for a room and waiting on line to check in. I went to the lobby bar and waited for about 45 minutes before I tried to check in. By that time the line for members had dissappeared. It costs nothing to join the Fairmont Presidents Club and it gives you free wifi. I suggest joining before you go to a Fairmont property. Warning- the hotel was partially covered in scaffolding so we couldn't see out of our window.

                Great location

                Small rooms outdated hotel. Still stuck in the 80's with the exception of a flat screen tv.

                I took my wife for a romantic night out and it was beautiful and relaxing I really liked the comfortable bed and the separate living room.

                Parking was expensive and should be included in the price

                There's no free airport shuttle as the hotel lied. You've to use public airport express and pay $23 for one-way ride. I was most offended when I was told at checkout that I'll have to pay around $2 for each local phone call.At Booked.net, free local calls were advertised as one of the perks but they weren't. Room was too small without any view of the city. No kitchenette included. They charge $5 for an adapter which should have been there in the first place for international travellers.

                A great place to stay and I really enjoyed the experince and the facilities. I would suggest however that they have free wi-fi rather than having to pay for it.

                Gym was lacking, they charge for WiFi, and the room was small/cramped. Plus there were long lines at the desk and concierge.

                Location was great.

                We reserved 4 rooms with King-Size or 2 doubles. They gave us room with queen beds. Also the bed was not full queen size. We checked in at 6:30 and the rooms were not ready and the hotel asked us to check back with tem every 30 mins. Staff was not friendly and helpful.

                Location is very close to the CN tower and union station. Room is clean and nice to live.

                Internet service is not so convenient. Internet both in lobby and room is charged and the fee is not acceptable.

                Staff partly very polite, partly extremely impolite. The bathroom is at the standard of the 1980ies and not very clean. There were hair from other occupants of the same before. The bathroom was extremly small. The whole hotel is too large. The hall seems more a train station than a luxury hotel.

                A lovely old building maintained to make the most of the buildings history

                It is a lovely hotel but we felt it feels that it doesn't have to bother too much due to a good reputation in the past rather than really worrying about giving value for money and a service relevant to todays customers. For example we were surprised at how limited the range of equipment in the gym was and how cramped plus the hotel boasted a wide range of different bars and resturaunts but in reality most seem to be franchises and weren't open when we visited.

                Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful.

                Room was showing it's age. Peeling wallpaper, dripping faucet in bathroom, scratched legs on chairs, crumbs left on table from previous guest.

                A beautiful, grand hotel. Absolutely luxurious, and incredibly friendly, helpful staff.

                I like the fact that it was downtown and close to shopping restaurants and entertainment venues.
