Bottom Line

Fairmont Platinum status offers some great perks such as the two free suite upgrades as well as the free night each year. In addition, every 10 nights after 30 nights will earn you a free night year. So after your 40th night you’ll earn a free night and after your 50th night you’ll earn another free night etc.

Other hotel perks such as free internet access and complimentary gym access are nice, however Fairmont Platinum does not offer any breakfast benefit nor does it offer lounge access to the Fairmont Gold lounge. I personally think this status could have much more value if it provided lounge access.

  1. Having my room preassigned with my keys waiting at the Valet counter. This way I never need to go to the front desk. This is a great perk! Using free nights at the Plaza in NYC was also pretty great!

  2. I have a Fairmont CC and I am not sure it’s worth maintaining after the first year. Do you know if the $100 dining certificate must be used in conjunction with a nightly stay, or if I also have the option of using it as a day visitor at the Fairmont in my hometown?

  3. @heavenlyjane you should be able to use them even if not staying there. Just let the restaurant know you’re using them and they can retrieve from your Fairmont President’s Club account
