Haven't tried it myself, couldn't find anything on Flyertalk about it. It's not on the public list of hotel credit cards either.

Wild find!! I'm not sure if I've ever stayed in a Fairmont hotel to be honest. I never pictured them to be as nice as Hyatts though so 2 free nights seems kind of weak.

I wonder if the Fairmont forum followers even know their hotel has a Chase Visa. Google has absolutely no record of this card anywhere, even Fairmont's site doesn't mention it.

Fairmonts can be extremely nice. The Fairmont in Seattle is stunning as is the Fairmont in Boston (it's the Copley Plaza). The Plaza in NYC used to be a Fairmont as well before they sold it and it's still managed by them. All across Canada's major cities they have some incredible properties as well.

Fairmont's are top notch, actually. The one SF is great and there is one in Kenya I am eying for a future safari destination....best lodge in Africa, supposedly.

I wonder if it is for any Fairmont in the world? The one I am interested in is around $600-700/night. Masa Mari

Great find , this showed up today on "The Boarding Area".


The signup bonus is 2 free Fairmont nights, including breakfast for 2.

Cardholders get free ‘Premier’ (first elite tier) status in Fairmont’s Presidents Club, which usually requires 5 stays or 10 nights. The card doesn’t, however, credit you with those stays/nights an thus doesn’t help towards Platinum status. Premier earns 750 miles per stay instead of the standard 500, receives 1 room upgrade and 1 suite upgrade certificate each year, a $50 dining or spa certificate, and some other sundry benefits.

The card also comes with lounge access with two free visits, I’m assuming it’s a basic Priority Pass membership, and no foreign currency transaction fees.

Earning based on spend is “Fairmont rewards for every purchase” but I haven’t found details on what the reward for spend looks like, since Fairmont Presidents Club isn’t a point-based program which generates free nights.

Definitely a card to add to a future churn.

Link on Boarding Area is also no longer available. Is Chase cancelling offers today or what?

I'm guessing they weren't quite ready to launch it yet. I wouldn't be surprised to see a more pronounced launch in the near future.

Very interesting. Ive never heard of a Faimont affilitiated CC, so Im thinking this may either be a card from bygone days or a card to be launched in the near future.

The two free nights offer sounds like cardholders would get two so-called Ovation certs which entitle you to two nights in a particular hotel category (IIRC Fairmont hotels are divided into four Ovation categories) incl. breakfast with no capacity control and very few black-out dates. If thats the case, its an excellent deal. If I had to guess, Id think the certs apply to all Fairmont hotels except the Savoy and the Plaza (as those are only "managed by Fairmont"), but thats really only a guess right now.

What will be much more interesting to see is how they design the rewards for continuous spend as Fairmont doesnt have a points-based program.
1 free night for every $25000 of CC spending? Will they introduce some kind of artificial CC points which can redeemed for F&B vouchers, free nights, activities etc.?

Definitely an interesting development...though Im not sure Im too happy about it myself...
