This is top of the line
Awesome hotel, every works perfectly, staff is one of the best I have experienced. The Gold Experience was worth every penny , our grandkids loved the club room for breakfast and treats. I could go on but the best I can say is we made our reservation for our next trip to Austin before we checked out. Kudos to the Fairmont.

4/10 Fair

Subpar
Beds are not comfortable and the front desk was rude when leaving. Not a good experience. Based on the reviews I was excited but it turned out to be disappointing. Don’t ask for a late check out, won’t happen. I stay at hotels every weekend and I was not impressed with the overall experience.

Gold experience is very nice. I would purchased the room with gold experience. Private check-in experience was great. Almost all day long complimentary food, snacks, and non-alcoholic drinks were absolutely amazing. Wifi was much faster than other hotels, too. Overall, it was 10 out of 10 experience. I would come back to Fairmont Gold Experience if I visit Austin.
