Fairmont Hotel and Resorts


The Group: The Original Fairmont was opening in San Francisco in 1907. It was later bought by Benjamin Swig in 1945. The Fairmont Chain merged with Canadian Pacific hotels and resorts in 1999. In early January 2006 Fairmont Chain was sold and as a result became part of the Fairmont Raffles Hotels International.

Fairmont Hotels and Resorts hotels say their hotels "combine unique architecture, with exquisite décor and expressive features all within a central location". The high level and quality of service which is offered makes Fairmont one of the leaders in the hotel industry. Many of the Fairmont Resorts are located in beautiful pristine locations with breath taking views.

Fairmont Hotel and Resorts prides themselves on consistency of service and standards within their hotels throughout the world. The Fairmont philosophy believes that each hotel guest, whether they are strolling across a white Sandy beach in Hawaii or just skied down a snow peak in Whistler, should experience an "authentic reflection of each destinations energy, culture and history".

The Fairmont Hotel and Resorts have been highly awarded over the years. In 2009 they received a five Diamond Hotel award at The CAA-AAA Awards.
