Rooms was smelling, as if no one was staying on it for soo long . I went with late check in , they didn't consider to give me late check out. When I asked for extra hours at the day that I'm checking out 2 diffrent people gave different rates with different timings when I told one of them that I've already got better rate then she match it. At the end after I got the offer , went to discuss with the group before I confirm then went back to confirm , the guy at the reception told me I don't know who told you you can extend unfortunately it's fully booked and you have to check out immediately

Amazing hotel and staff
This was our second visit and we'll be back again for sure. This hotel is slightly further from the corniche but the peace and tranquility you get with it is perfect. The centre hotels we visited when nearby for lunch etc and it was too busy for us with the hustle and bustle you would expect from centre hotel. Fairmont was perfect for us, out of the way but still within driving distance to all the attractions. The staff were amazing and we can't wait to return.
