Fairmont has some great properties
Pretty much what you state is likely to happen room rate increases,overpricing,lack of recognition nickle and dime on each and everything etc
Hopefully they will at least update the property
One of the many reasons brands change as they frequently believe another program/ hotel brand will increase pricing power ROI
I like many of Accor's premium hotels Fairmont Swissotel however between a lackluster unrewarding program and a bad business culture I avoid
almost all of the time for the more generous programs with guest friendly policies for loyal customers
Sad as I would like to be their customer but they can't seem to get there with elite recognition,rewards or the ability to build strong relationships
