Due to our budget I was wondering if anyone knew of any current deals for end of July - September at either properties or knew of any promotion codes.
I am new here so I am not exactly sure where to post this but figured people on the Fairmont board would know about these properties best.
Thank You & I appreciate any help or guidance I can get!
Welcome to Flyertalk!
July - September are high/peak season, and as the economy is slowly recovering, Fairmont is trying to sell as many rooms as possible at rack rate ($450 + for a Fairmont room)
Iīm not aware of any special promos for the two properties for your dates at the moment, but guess there will be some promo 4-6 weeks before your dates if they havenīt filled all the rooms.
My recommendation would be:
1) to book a room now (make sure itīs a refundable res.) to make sure you have a room (you could book through a Virtuoso/AMEX FHR travel agent to get some comp. amenities like breakfast, one-c-ategory upgrade etc.)
2) register for Fairmont Presidentīs Club and keep a close eye on promos (in particular the monthly "Great Dates Great Rates" promo)
3) if you find a better rate, book it and cancel the original res.
