Bronze Fairmont Hotel Downtown

Area: Downtown

This historic hotel brings guests back to yesteryear. Designed and decorated with old world charm and vintage décor, Fairmont rolls out the welcome mat to those travelers seeking an upscale yet old school experience. High fashion retailers such as Gucci line the lobby halls and Griffin's restaurant serves up healthy food items 7 days a week. All 556 rooms possess an early 1900's motif, so if modern furnishings are your thing, you may want to look elsewhere. Fortunately, 21st century technology and conveniences are available such as high speed internet access ($15/day) and room service till 11pm. Wireless internet access is supplied in the lounge adjacent to Fairmont's lobby.

The attended fitness center is located on the 2nd floor in a very small, windowless room. Because the area is spatially challenged, the machines, especially cardio, are too close for comfort. You won't get hit with an elbow from a neighboring runner on a treadmill, but it may be possible to see the mileage readings on their machine. The cardio apparatus is a mix of old and new and the Keiser air pressure equipment is, unfortunately, the only strength option. Some non-peak hour exercisers may do fine with this complimentary gym, but we suspect that most will want to head to Fitness World ($20/day) if their needs aren't met.

Fairmont does have a lap pool (2 bottom stripes and no floating lanes) adjacent to the exercise room, but like the gym it is short on size. 50 feet (just over 16 yards) is all the length you'll get. Maybe enough for a 15 to 20 minute quickie session, but wet ones wanting a proper water box will want to walk to the nearby YWCA ($16/day).
