The Savoy - A Fairmont Hotel, London, UK

Located on The Strand in the heart of the West End theatre district, The Savoy offers spectacular views of the river Thames. This landmark hotel opened in 1889 and is still considered to be the place to stay in London. The hotel’s 263 rooms and suites, with Art Deco touches throughout, are elegantly appointed yet offer an extensive array of modern amenities.

The Fairmont Banff Springs, Alberta, Canada

Few hotels in the world can rival the majesty of The Fairmont Banff Springs, Canada’s “Castle in the Rockies”. Its unique blend of opulence and seclusion has been a symbol of Rocky Mountain hospitality for more than a century. Styled after a Scottish baronial castle, The Fairmont Banff Springs offers stunning vistas, championship golf courses, unparalleled skiing, classic cuisine and the award winning Willow Stream spa.


The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada

Known fondly as “the Diamond in the Wilderness” this cosmopolitan Italian-meets-Swiss fantasy palace embraces the world famous lake, dazzling visitors with its brilliant turquoise in summer and shimmering ice in winter. It even gets its own life-sized ice castle in winter, built by the Kitchen brigade and designed for skating parties and holiday photo opportunities.  Above the lake, the Chateau is ringed by snow-frosted peaks and the imposing Victoria Glacier, creating a year-round outdoor adventure right at the hotel’s front doors
