Since having started working for this company, I have decided to make a-
‘Canadian Fairmont Bucket List’
A list of Fairmont Hotel’s that I want to spend at least one night in at some point for here in Canada as well as the United States (since its just down the road)!
- Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise ✔️
Monday April 18th 2016 – The stayover
- Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel ✔️
The reason I want to stay here, and honestly I already have twice, I just haven’t written about it yet, is because it is only 45 minutes away from Lake Louise. Having a passion for spa, the iconic Willow Stream Spa is one thing I certainly will be checking out! I will potentially stay here with my parents, will see 😉
- Fairmont Palliser, Calgary ✔️
Tuesday, March 15th 2016 – 48 Hours in Calgary
- Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge
I will be staying here in September with my parents when they visit! So I shall keep you informed 🙂
- Fairmont Hotel Macdonald, Edmonton
- The Fairmont Waterfront, Vancouver
Again, in September, my parents will be lucky enough to check this place out with me!
- The Fairmont Pacific Rim, Vancouver
I would love more than anything to be able to stay here!!! They have by what I have heard, the best high tea next to The Savoy in London! They also have a Willow Stream Spa 😍 The only reason I couldn’t book here is because the staff rate wasn’t available for when my parents are visiting 😦 Doesn’t mean we can’t pop over to check it out!
- The Fairmont Waterfront Vancouver
Here I will be staying with my parents!! Woohoo
- Fairmont Empress, Victoria
Victoria is a stone throw away from Vancouver and the hotel sits right on the waterfront. It is also home to another Willow Stream Spa
- Fairmont Chateau Whistler
It’s Whistler, need I say anymore? And yes I will be staying here in September! 😁☺️😆
- Fairmont Southampton, Bermuda
Palm Trees, Beach and Willow Stream Spa. Ah, sounds like heaven! This place is very high up on the bucket list for a holiday getaway!
- Fairmont Mayakoba, Mexico
I nearly made it here in January when I went on my Mexican trip with G Adventures! Friday January 15th 2016 – Cancun. There were no staff rates, so I didn’t book. But next time!!!
- Fairmont Copley Plaza, Boston
I honestly love Boston! I was here in 2014 when I went on my first contiki trip, the Grand Northern. (I am yet to blog about it by the way. This trip was before I started blogging!) The historic city of Boston honestly fascinates me and I would go back there in a heartbeat to visit again. The Fairmont Copley Plaza is also recognized as one of the Historic Hotels of America, since its grand opening in 1912.
Dear god, I will never be able to explain in words how much I loved visiting Texas! Take me back!
Day 22 Monday 31st August- “Things do not happen, things are made to happen” JFK
Day 23 Tuesday 1st September – “Brace your backbone and forget your wishbone”
The Fairmont Orchid is home to The Spa Without Walls. Imagine laying there getting a facial with the sound of the water trickling from the waterfall and stream only meters away. And stepping out of the door from your room straight onto the beach. Sounds like heaven to me. And I’ve never been yet to Hawaii.
Day 4 Thursday 13th August- Sex and the city
New York is without a doubt my favorite city in the whole world! Not only was it the starting place of both of my contiki trips, which literally changed my life both times, but the city itself is so incredibly diverse and cultured. You walk in one direction to one neighborhood to see Wall Street and skyscrapers, and in another direction you are in the middle of suburbia eating local cupcakes in the park that looks like something out of the “Forrest Gump” movie.
And The Plaza, well is speaks for itself. Do you remember watching ‘Home Alone 2 Lost In New York’ as a kid? Yes, this is the same place! Central Park is right next door (and no its not as scary as the movie makes it out to be) And for those Australians, Crocodile Dundee when he arrives in New York ( you know the scene) his hotel suite is bigger than my whole apartment!
I won’t go on any further, we all know The Plaza.
- Fairmont Grand Del Mar, San Diego
Even though I had 2 trips to the United States, San Diego is one destination I am yet to get to.
- Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, Arizona
This place is also very high on the bucket list. If I am to one day able to work in the States and get a working Visa for there, here is the place to be! Home to the Well & Being Spa, a holistic overall wellness spa with a fitness center and the works. Right in the middle of Arizona where it is nice and warm, just how I like it!
- Fairmont Olympic Hotel, Seattle
I will be meeting my parents in Seattle in September when I see them for the first time in a whole 12 months! I tried to book here with the staff rate, but with no luck. We may just have to pop in for a visit though during out day in Seattle.
Eventually I will make my way to all of these incredible destinations. I know it won’t be any time soon, but one day in years to come, I will look back on this list and know just how achievable it really is!
Thank you Fairmont for being such an incredible place to work 💜
