1. Fairmont Ajman
The newest Fairmont flagship in the United Arab Emirates is The Fairmont Ajman. This immaculate five-star hotel currently comes in at under a third of the price of the Fairmont the Palm up the road. For this reason alone, it is worth considering.
Yes, this hotel can be cheap if you pick the right time of year. On 20th September 2020, this hotel costs just 319د.إ AED per night, which works out at under $90 USD per night, an incredibly cheap rate for an amazing hotel
Located in the emirate of perennial sunshine and stunning white sand beaches, Ajman offers a delightful contrast and a gentler pace of life set on a stretch of shoreline called the Corniche, where you can enjoy a refreshing swim in opal hued and clear waters and to soak in genuine Arabian traditions and hospitality.
Showcasing exotic design and sophisticated chic with polished textures using timeless palettes, the 252 room Fairmont Ajman fits its resort setting perfectly. Round seating and rugs bring in a local note to the aesthetic. Golden shades and delicate patterns add another piece to the design puzzle, while subtler touches like an Oriental rug pattern on top of the tables finish off the statement with a quiet polish. Streamlined furniture in the guestrooms keeps the look effortless.
The hotel features seven dining venues as well as an expansive infinity pool with ample sun loungers and cabanas, children’s activity facilities and spa, and a fitness center. The seven meeting spaces include a 380-person capacity ballroom.
2. Fairmont Jaipur
Fairmont Jaipur, in the magnificent capital of Rajasthan, also known as the ‘Pink City’, is a hub for tourists and visitors from all over the world, looking to explore and discover the rich history, glorious legacy and multifaceted culture of the Rajputana.
Fairmont Jaipur is truly a royal destination. Built-in the tradition of the region’s grand Mughal palaces, this majestic hotel offers the best in modern amenities and is perfectly complemented with the rich heritage of Rajasthan in the design and attention to detail on display in each of the 245 guest rooms. This is also one of the cheapest Fairmont hotels in the world, starting at 7650INR per night in October. This is around $101 USD per night.
3. Fairmont Nile City
Book into this Fairmont Nile City hotel in October and you can bag superbly cheap rate that is as low as $105 USD per night. Located on the banks of the famed river Nile, in the city of Cairo, the center of culture and commerce for Egypt.
Art deco and modern design combine to provide timeless elegance and refinement in opulent hotel accommodations, as reflected throughout 542 guest rooms and luxury suites. All hotel rooms and suites are complemented by stunning views of the city or the river Nile.
4. Fairmont Baku
Book into this Fairmont Baku hotel in October and you can bag superbly cheap rate that is as low as ₼245 AZN or $145 USD per night. Fairmont Baku, Flame Towers, Azerbaijan is located in windswept Baku, whose charming old Inner City boasts UNESCO World Heritage Site status.
This city is home to Baku’s 5-star luxury hotel, Fairmont Baku, Flame Towers, Azerbaijan. As the largest city and port of Azerbaijan, it also boasts a prime location on the Absheron Peninsula, wrapped by the wondrous Caspian Sea.
5. Fairmont Monte-Carlo
The Fairmont Monte-Carlo (pictured above) is located perfectly, slap bang in the centre of Monte-Carlo right next to the Casino. The sea view rooms & suites are literally built out into the bay, so your balcony is sitting on top of the water, and the views can’t be beaten. Watch the numerous fireworks displays in the summer, fabulous sunsets, and all the helicopters and boats that race in and out of the marina. When a cruise ship arrives, it comes in so close it can feel like it will hit the hotel!
Sadly we can not find rates I’m the region of $90 USD per night in Monaco, even in the low season. That said, you can still pick up a cheap deal traveling out of season. In mid-January, you can book a room here for 217Euro per night. This compares to around 700Euros plus in the summer.
The Fairmont Monte-Carlo is immense, making it a popular conference hotel. Its atmosphere is less formal than the other hotels in Monte-Carlo, which is advantageous for families and those without a designer wardrobe. Feel free to wander around in designer gear or in Bermuda shorts and sandals with socks. Whatever you feel comfortable in, the staff here will welcome you, and you won’t feel out of place.
The rooftop pool at the Fairmont Monte-Carlo is a highlight, with a beautiful view wrapping round from the Grand Prix hairpin to the entrance of the harbor. On the same magical 7th floor is the “Horizon Deck” Restaurant and Champagne Bar, which offers the same wraparound views, which are particularly stunning in the Mediterranean night. In the winter, Nobu remains open downstairs, but not poolside. Equally, the “Horizon Deck” closes in the Winter, but the Sapphire bar is open 24/7 all year round.
Breakfast in the summer is served in the “Horizon Deck” restaurant on top of the hotel where views and ambiance are one in a million – I saw a helicopter land on the deck of a Super Yacht, right in front of me! There is also a huge spread if you don’t mind self-service.
All rooms are very similar in design and decor, but the views aren’t. If you are going for the sea view, request a room that is not looking over the multicolored 60’s hexagon. For a garden view, request a high floor. The low floor garden view rooms can be dingy. I recommend the sea view suites in particular. Views don’t get a lot better!
The bathrooms are a little tired, but this is more than made up for with their gorgeous Labo Rose 31 amenities, which smell fabulous. The rooms can be a little noisy as the hotel is located in the middle of the action in Monaco, but we have always been moved without a problem if we have felt it necessary.
While this isn’t the best Fairmont in the world, it is in one of the best destinations in the world and has some of the best views in the world, so it’s definitely worth a try.
6. Fairmont Waterfront
Within Vancouver, one of the cheapest Fairmont hotels is the Fairmont Waterfront, which offers comparable views to the Fairmont Pacific Rim for a cheaper price. How cheap? In Mid October, you are looking at prices starting from $323 CAD.
The Fairmont Waterfront is located at 900 Canada Place Way Vancouver V6C 3L5 and features an outdoor heated pool which is handy if you visit in the summer but not so useful in the spring, autumn and winter! If you are here on business, this hotel is connected to the Vancouver Convention Centre and Canada Place Cruise Ship Terminal.
The renovated rooms at Fairmont Waterfront are very nice (and very similar in style as those at the Pacific Rim), and bathrooms now have a large walk-in shower instead of a shower/tub combo.
This Fairmont Gold Lounge has a stunning gardened terrace overlooking Vancouver’s harbor and North Shore mountains. Both the Gold lounges at the Pacific Rim and Vancouver Waterfront are great during the summer months since both have an awesome outside patio and are two of the best club lounges in Vancouver.
Fairmont Waterfront has a unique feature of lending you rain gear in partnership with Native Shoes and Moojoes (both local Vancouver companies). Similar to FairmontFit, guests can sign out a pair of Native rain boots and a rain poncho during their stay.
7. Fairmont Chateau Whistler
The Fairmont Chateau Whistler is not cheap, but book out of season, in the summer when there’s no snow, and the rates are cheaper than you might expect. Book a stay in September at Fairmont Chateau Whistler, and you will pay in the region of $359 CAD per night. A steal for such a stunning hotel!
The rooms at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler are some of the best in Whistler. Most have decent sized windows, but few are floor to ceiling. The majority of rooms don’t have balconies, which is a real disadvantage. The ones with a balcony only offer Romeo and Juliette style, so you can’t step out or sit out.
There’s nothing like swinging open your balcony doors to take in the summer air or stepping out barefoot onto a balcony covered in snow, as the flakes are falling, only to return immediately to the warmth of your room so you can cozy up at your own private fireplace. For this joy, you have to pick the Four Seasons Whistler, I’m afraid.
The standard rooms at the Fairmont face backward, towards the car park rather than over the pool and the slopes. While they remain luxury rooms with 37m2 of space, they are nothing special, and if you are a luxury traveler, you may be disappointed if you get a car park view. If you want a fireplace in your room, it’s only the suites at the Fairmont that offer fireplaces.
The Fairmont offers small 40 mL bottles of Le Labo Rose 31 bath amenities in their bathrooms, which is standard for the Fairmont brand. These amenities smell nice but are not my favorites.
The big advantage of the Fairmont is that it’s located at the base of Blackcomb Mountain by the Wizard Express ski lift. This means you walk out of the hotel and onto the slopes. They have a ski concierge room to store your skis/boards/boots overnight, so you don’t have to carry everything back to the hotel. In this ski concierge room, there is sometimes hot chocolate available too.
The Fairmont pool is heated and is much larger vs. the Four Seasons, and although it has an indoor and outdoor section, it feels more traditional in design and lacks the boutique feel and interesting design of the pool at the Four Seasons. That said, it’s still a magical place to swim, and you can warm up in the hot tubs that surround the pool.
The other big advantage of the Fairmont is that it offers a club lounge which you get access to by booking their Gold rooms. The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Gold floor accommodations offer jetted tubs and gas fireplaces in every room, along with upgraded hotel amenities and Bose sound systems.
The Fairmont also has lounges and restaurants, but the overall feel is less intimate and more traditional than the Four Seasons. While the Fairmont is undoubtedly one of the best ski hotels in the world, the Four Seasons up the road is just that little bit better!
8. Fairmont Vancouver Airport
The second best airport hotel in the world is the Fairmont, Vancouver Airport in Canada is one of the best airport hotels in the world. It is the only airport hotel directly connected to Vancouver Airport’s International terminal, although there are plenty of other options on the airport’s grounds. I have found this airport hotel to be particularly good to get over jetlag when flying in from London. I then grab a taxi, Uber or bus up to Whistler for some skiing and stay at the Four Seasons Whistler.
The other great thing about this hotel is that because it is an airport hotel, so not in a resort or city center location, is that the room rates tend to be cheaper than those in Whistler or central Vancouver. In mid-October, rates here are around $390 CAD per night,
The hotel is connected to the airport building and is situated right above the US departures area within a minute or two‘s walk from the luggage carousel. There is so much to love about this airport hotel, but the floor-to-ceiling windows, which are heavily soundproofed, have to be a highlight, as he really can watch the planes take off from your bed. Beyond the rooms, there is an indoor pool, health club, and spa, along with restaurants, including a jet sidebar for live music, tapas, and cocktails, and globe@yvr, which is an award-winning restaurant and where you can take breakfast.
There are a variety of rooms to choose from, and if you want a luxury boutique hotel experience, there are some newly renovated rooms on the 14th floor which give you access to a complimentary club lounge. It is well worth paying the extra for a Fairmont Gold Room because of this club lounge access. Within the club lounge, you get a continental breakfast served from 6:30 – 10:00 am, or you can have the complimentary breakfast delivered to your room if you are leaving before 6:30 am. In the evening, there is a selection of hot and cold canapés from 5:00 – 7:00 pm, and desserts are served from 8:00 – 9:00 pm within the lounge. Non-alcoholic drinks are included within your room rates in this lounge, including espresso tea, coffee, soft drinks, and water, and there is an honor bar that sticks your spirits, wines, and beers available 12:00 – 10:00 pm. By booking a Gold Room, you also get a daily turndown service, complimentary local calls within North America, complimentary BMW car service between the hotel and YVR’s south terminal, and a golf cart service within why they are the main terminal.
9. Fairmont Royal Palm Marrakech
Nestled in a natural landscape of 231 hectares of palm, olive, and orange trees, lying in the shadow of the snow-capped peaks of the Atlas Mountains, is Fairmont Royal Palm.
The hotel features opulent guest rooms, suites, and villas overlooking an 18-hole Golf Course and the Atlas Mountains. Indulge in one of six eclectic restaurants and bars offering local and international cuisine, a 2,000 sqm swimming pool, and a 3,500 sqm Spa offering the ultimate escape and relaxation. There is also a Kids’ Club and a Fitness Centre within the hotel.
Book into this Fairmont hotel in the heat of the summer, and you can bag cheap rates that are as low as 3,400MAD per night, which is around $345 USD per night.
10. Fairmont Banff Springs
The world-famous Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel stands as a landmark in the picturesque alpine town of Banff, Alberta. Canada’s “Castle in the Rockies” has been providing legendary hospitality to its guests for more than 125 years.
Fairmont Banff Springs offers all the amenities of a world-class resort, with 757 guest rooms and suites, superbly appointed Banff accommodations and attentive, personalized service. From cozy rooms tucked away in quiet corners of the castle to spacious suites with sweeping Alberta mountain views, Fairmont Banff Springs has the perfect guest room, suite, or Fairmont Gold accommodations for your Rocky Mountain getaway.
The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel enjoys a very convenient location in the heart of Banff National Park, just above the Bow Falls and close to thermal springs.
The hotel features a large, 32 m (105 ft) saltwater indoor pool is complemented by an indoor whirlpool, a kid’s wading pool, and an outdoor 20 m (66 ft) pool, which is filled with heated water and open year-round. There’s also an excellent Willow Stream Spa and numerous excellent restaurants. And let’s not forget the hotel’s magnificent golf course to exercise you between meals.
This luxury hotel is never cheap. Even in mid-October, after the summer season and before the ski season, this hotel’s room rates start at almost $500 CAD.
