Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, a Fairmont Managed Hotel Questions & Answers

New York City, New York

Hello,

My family is thinking of booking your hotel in July and we have a few questions:

1.) how often does the jitney run to the beach. what is the earliest you can take the jitney in the morning, and what time does the last jitney leave the beach to return to the hotel? are you able to stay at the beach for an early dinner and take the jitney back?

2.) we are thinking of bringing our small dog with us, is there a pet fee, if so, how much is the pet fee? (a one time fee or per day)

3.) are dogs allowed all over the property, at outdoor restaurants, pools, fire pits, etc.

4.) is the town pet friendly, can you walk to town with your dog and eat outside at some restaurants?

5) I know the hotel has recently been renovated...are ALL of the rooms renovated, or are you still putting guests in older rooms that have not yet been renovated?

I appreciate you taking the time to answer all of my questions.

Thanks!!!

Good Morning!

Thanks for reaching out!

1. During the day our jitneys run every hour on the half hour from the Hotel and depart every hour on the hour from the Beach club. For teh evening events at the Beach Club with are Thursday-Saturday the Jitney will leave the hotel at 6pm and 7pm and departs from the Beach Club at 8.30pm and 10pm. Taxis can also be coordinated with the concierge should you want a different departure time. You can stay at the Beach for an early Dinner through Thursday-Saturday, A la carte menus are offered on Thursdays and Saturdays and we offer a Beach BBQ on Fridays. The Beach Club closes daily at 6pm which would be the last shuttle time Monday-Wednesday and Sundays.

2. Small dogs are allowed in rooms but must be under 35lbs. The rate is $25 per day for this.

3. Small Dogs are allowed in the outdoor sections of the property however they are not permitted in any of the dining outlets.

4. Bermuda is pet friendly however restaurants in Hamilton and across the island do not allow pets.

5. The hotel came out of renovations last summer. We have many different room categories which you can view on our website, most of our rooms are renovated but we do have a few that refreshed and have more of a classic look such as the Fairmont Room and the deluxe rooms in the Bermudiana Wing.

Hope this information helps and we hope to have you with us soon!

I would recommend taking public buses, they run everywhere and the times are very convenient. Don't depend on the hotel shuttle for everything. We used public transportation our entire trip and were able to get around with ease.

Didn't see any dogs at all, don't think you can bring them, its out of country.

I do not believe that you can brings dogs to Bermuda at all. They would need to be quarantined for some period of time. We have not ever seen dogs in any of the restaurants - inside or outside.

The Hamilton Princess is a Fairmont managed hotel so all of their rules apply. It is an upscale hotel. All of the rooms we have stayed in were renovated and in the main building. It is a lovely hotel and we have been several times at all times of the year. The beaches are beautiful and all the restaurants are very good.

1.) how often does the jitney run to the beach. what is the earliest you can take the jitney in the morning, and what time does the last jitney leave the beach to return to the hotel? are you able to stay at the beach for an early dinner and take the jitney back?

The Beach Jitney currently operates from Monday to Sunday and departs the hotel every 30 minutes from 9:30am – 11:30am, and from 1pm – 4:30pm, and evenings from Thursday to Saturday at 6pm and 7pm. It departs the Beach Club every 30 minutes from 10am – 12 noon, and from 1:30pm – 6:30pm, and evenings from Thursday to Saturday at 8:30pm and 10pm

2.) we are thinking of bringing our small dog with us, is there a pet fee, if so, how much is the pet fee? (a one time fee or per day)

Dogs under 25 lbs, are accepted subject to advance reservations. There is an additional charge. You would have to contact reservations for details. I would also check to see if there are restrictions on bringing animals to the island.

3.) are dogs allowed all over the property, at outdoor restaurants, pools, fire pits, etc.

You would have to verify with reservations.

4.) is the town pet friendly, can you walk to town with your dog and eat outside at some restaurants?

We did not observe any in Hamilton.

5) I know the hotel has recently been renovated...are ALL of the rooms renovated, or are you still putting guests in older rooms that have not yet been renovated?

The main building and some of the wings have been renovated; I am not sure if all have been completed. Again, you would need to verify with reservations.
