  1. I’m a Fairmont Premier. I use it as a tertiary hotel after HHonors and IHG. As stated above, it is quite easy to attain even without the card. Hotel a hopping in cities with multiple Fairmonts makes it even easier.

    My favorite amenity is Fairmont Fit. Hotel provides me workout shoes and clothes so I don’t have to pack (and take space in my luggage when traveling with only a carryon).
