It was a Gorgeous hotel!!!

Uli K (The Woodlands, Texas) on Aug 07, 2022

At least it was gorgeous, before they "renovated" it. I can't believe they cut those gorgeous trees in front of the hotel down. They were what made this hotel the Empress. Been there several times, but will not go back after they cannibalized the Exterior and the Interior. Remember people: a good renovation should not change the ambiance of the existing place. So disappointed!

Beautiful location, ambience and service.

Fairmont was one of the major reason for our most satisfying vacation in Canada. The reception was polite and positive for extra discounts at our requests, for an online matching deal, which otherwise also was a decent package. The concierge was very helpful for and shared her personal experiences for the Whale watching. The onward journey bookings were scrutinized for us for the best ticketing deals.
