2016 Holiday Gift - 3rd Night Free

Anyone else (Platinum) see this in their account? Seems like a nice gesture

Expiry 28/Feb/2018

Very nice gesture!

Fairmont is among the few companies that manages to surprise me in a pleasant way.

Agreed, this kind of pleasant surprise is what generates real loyalty.

Here is hoping the Accor management understand what makes Fairmont so exceptional at times.

Didn't get it.

Looks like they are really separating the treatment they give plats vs 113plat

We got one of those last year. This year's "gift" was not taking the Gold Upgrade from our account when we used it.

Interesting. I don't remember any reports of FTers getting such a cert last year. (FWIW, I've qualified for Plat via the 30 nights requirement each year and this is the 1st I've received this gift.)

That is a very nice surprise. The 2018 expiry is also nice, so it can be applied now to next years bookings without waiting until the new batch of certs post.

This might also be good for anyone who was trying to redeem a free night at the Savoy for next year with their capacity controls on the number of free nights redeemed. You might be able to use this now to get in before March 1 when people start using their new certs.

I didn't feel it was worthy of a thread, particularly since I don't know why we got it, and I didn't want to raise any unwanted attention. It was also only valid for 90 days.

And we're only Premier, so it didn't seem to be tied to status.

I wonder what the criteria are for receiving it?

My wife and I each got one in our FPC accounts this morning. I'm currently platinum via 30 nights and my wife via PLAT5 fast track, and we have both requalified for next year.

Neither of us received an e-mail notification. I'm in and out of my FPC profile with some regularity, but I don't often check my certificates page. If I hadn't seen this thread, I wouldn't have even known to look for the bonus.

Thanks, mikeyyz!

I got one too!

Had dinner at Royal York last night and used my BMW $100 cert. Was mighty ticked off this morning when I saw they also redeemed my free night cert. (I slept at home!) I need that cert for my Jan SIN stay. Called Fairmont and they said it would probably be fixed by tomorrow.

Went into my account again, and noticed the other free night.

Thanks for posting about it. I got one and I would not have noticed unless you posted about it. Looking forward to using it!

I am only a PLAT5 - so it is really appreciated!
