I'm sorry if this question has already been answered. I just can't find the answer. I'm going to book in Sept. Does anyone know if this promotion will still be available in June (90 days before booking?)
Thanks in advance.

Just book as soon as it opens and you'll be fine. Let us know if you have any problems with booking at that time. Cheers!

Do these rates include breakfast in the lobby restaurant? or does that depend on the Fairmont in question?

Certainly not at Sensing the Guy Mitchell restaurant at Boston Battery Wharf Fairmont. But it's a lovely hotel, and I thank nyx.t2t for his assitance.

Friends and Family rates are cheap enough that you can pay for breakfast...and if they're not then you can just book the B&B rate

I stayed at The Plaza last night (May 17-18) and had no problems at all. Being 22 and never having stayed in a hotel of such caliber, I was blown away. I hope Fairmont realizes how successful of a viral marketing campaign this has become. I would have never booked last night's stay or a two night stay in July without the NFAF code as I would have never been able to afford it. I did order a nice breakfast today via room service so I contributed something to the coffers.

Overall, very pleasant.

I think it all depends on each individual hotel and what rooms/rates they decide to include at their hotel. xray is correct in saying that the F&F rates are so cheap that you may as well buy your own breakfast though

One thing I'd like to contribute to this post: If you are a SAKS WorldElite MasterCard holder (some posts here at FT re: this card and its benefits), you can acceleterate to Premiier Level with just a 3 night stay, as noted on the Saks site....
Fairmont Hotels & Resorts' exclusive guest recognition program, is pleased to offer SAKSFIRST customers accelerated status to Premier level, with any three-night stay*

What doesn't compute? The rates are right there on the website with the promotional code. I currently work with Fairmont and their occupancy levels have been lower than ever which makes sense for them to offer rates like this. People don't have much money these days to fork over for a hotel room.
Do you want me to include your Booker ID with my resv? It seems to work without it but if you can use the $10 I will be glad to include it.

It's not just the $10 but with this promotion you are actually asked to enter a booker ID because the NFAF code was actually supposed to be given to you from a family/friend. If you don't have one, it gives them a reason to ask you for that information when you check-in.

So yes, please enter my booker ID. Thanks!

To make this worthwhile for everyone involved, please enter a Booker ID when making Friends and Family reservations...

Those of us that work for Fairmont Hotels on this forum do thank everyone for remembering to enter the Booker ID!

If you dont have one, please ask!

Plus, why not reciprocate? Especially if you got the info from this thread... and it only takes a few seconds to include a booker ID while you're reserving anyway...
