Rooms are so beautiful and staff are above and beyond for this 5 star property. Don was amazing !!!! He is so nice and ready to help. Not only him but Riley from room service deserves a promotion he is so so so amazing and so friendly honestly one of the friendliest person I ever met! Rooms have amazing views will be back To General Manager - these 2 people will be placed in our special memory forever as such a memorable vacation for us! I mean so amazing people at this property but these 2 people are just so amazing they deserve a bonus or a raise. I own hotels myself and as an owner having employees like this is something that is precious and should not ever be taken for granted! This entire property is like on big family keep it up!!! 20/10

It’s been 24 years since we stayed here on our honeymoon and I can say that it is still the same gorgeous castle in the Rockies. Don Mooney made our trip beyond perfect. He called to welcome us prior to our arrival and answered questions we had, he secured reservations for us at the best places, greeted us on arrival and followed up with us during our stay. Customer service far exceeded our expectations. Every staff member was so kind and helpful. The property is majestic, the food incredible and we can’t wait to return. Thank you Don and Fairmont for the trip of a lifetime for our family.
