Fairmont room availability at Fairmont properties in the Rocky Mountains

I can't get a fairmont room for my platinum status free night at Banff nor Lake Louise for my chosen dates in september.. Does anyone know how to get one...do I keep checking their site or inquire directly by phone. Should I expect a cancellation to show up on their site? help.

Welcome to FT, biglake!

You just need to keep checking back in case someone cancels. These properties have a very limited supply of Fairmont Rooms and they go quickly.

If someone cancels and inventory opens up, you would see it online.

Welcome to Flyertalk!

One other aspect: Tour operators often book/block a large number of (entry-level) rooms which may be released a few months before arrival.

However, occupany levels are extremely high this year at the Rocky Mountain properties, so I wouldn't count on it.

A Fairmont CSR told me that "Fairmont View Rooms" were eligible for award-night redemptions in Banff. So I have a revenue ressie for my dates while waiting for my 2 award cert.s to be deposited, one week after they sent my letter. When they arrive, I shall report on whether that CSR was correct !

Enjoy! These are properties I am willing to pay full rack, given how great the Rocky Mountain experience can be.
