This was my first stay in a Fairmont hotel an it won't be my last. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. We had one one of the more standard rooms up on the 5th floor, but it was still very comfortable and even had a kettle which is a must for us being avid...

Very efficient and friendly service, extremely spacious room with separate rain shower and tub, double vanity, nice view, all very positive experience, except very pricy for restaurants and even for lobby snack bar.

We booked this hotel for our 1 week vacation on a very short note for Easter time, not sure what to expect. To sum it up: it was awesome!

We spent 2 nights here, a nice quiet relaxing getaway. Had a lovely time, staff were helpful, food was amazing. We stayed in the Gold room so the afternoon tea and drinks in the evening were lovely. Would definitely be going back in the near future.

Stayed here in September last year for one night whilst on a work trip. Hotel was spotlessly clean - unfortunately didn't get much opportunity to take advantage of the facilities on offer.

I had an amazing stay. Rooms are beautiful overlooking the grand mosque and we enjoyed the outlets in the hotels especially the sushi bar. When you enter the hotel lobby you have a nice and positive feeling.
