Fairmont Hotels & Resorts

Fairmont Hotels & Resorts is a Canadian based operator of luxury hotels and resorts. Currently, Fairmont operates properties in 16 countries including Canada, the United States, Mexico, Bermuda, Barbados, United Kingdom, Monaco, Germany, Switzerland, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, China and Singapore.
Fairmont is known in Canada for its famous historic hotels and resorts such as the Empress Hotel (Victoria) and Hotel Vancouver in British Columbia, the Royal York in Toronto, Banff Springs in Alberta and Ch√Ęteau Frontenac in Quebec. Many of these hotels were originally built by the Canadian Pacific Railway in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Fairmont's portfolio also includes several other landmark and icon properties including The Plaza in New York, the Savoy Hotel in London and the Peace Hotel in Shanghai.
The original Fairmont is located in the city of San Francisco. The nearly completed structure survived the earthquake of 1906. Although heavily damaged by the subsequent fires, the hotel was renovated under the eye of architect Julia Morgan and finally opened in 1907. It was later acquired by Benjamin Swig in 1945.

Starting in the 1960s, Fairmont began developing a small chain of luxury hotels in major cities across the United States. The Fairmont chain consisted of seven properties in the United States when it was bought by Canadian Pacific Hotels & Resorts in 1999:

The Fairmont San Francisco
The Fairmont New Orleans (formerly and now again The Roosevelt)
The Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel(Boston)
The Plaza Hotel (New York)
The Fairmont Dallas
The Fairmont San Jose
