Guests will enjoy a collection of unique living room spaces in the Fairmont Gold lounge such as hideaway alcoves, library nooks, bistro seating, and an expansive outdoor terrace to tuck away and unwind. The luxury residential-style pantry space features waterfall-edge marble islands inspired by the nearby flowing water and serves daily breakfast, afternoon tea bites and evening canapés, creating a sophisticated ambiance to make guests feel home away from home. Thoughtful details throughout the lounge reminiscent of nature include rich blue and green cabinetry, marble finishing, as well as custom carpet design with hues that mirror the sky’s golden glow, complements the surrounding natural beauty of its coastal city setting, delivering an unforgettable experience.
In addition to the extensive Fairmont Gold lounge renovation, the addition of 22 guest rooms have been added to the collection of Fairmont Gold rooms, each elegantly designed with rich fabrics, sleek furnishings and modern marble bathrooms with rainfall shower, reflective of the natural beauty of Vancouver Island.
“We are thrilled to officially begin welcoming guests to the transformed Fairmont Gold, offering an experience with unparalleled luxury touches that are truly unlike any other,” said Dan McGowan, General Manager at Fairmont Empress. “To set ourselves apart from other hotel-within-a-hotel concepts, we’ve thought of everything for our guests to fully immerse themselves into a residential-style space, including entry to a completely renovated and stocked pantry, access to the best views in the city and a stylish resort-style retreat.”
