Fairmont President’s Club has apparently launched a holiday promotion and deposited third night free certificate to some member accounts (yours truly included).
Members must book and pay for the first two nights and then the third night would be free. I have not personally used this before to confirm what rates are available.
You can access Fairmont President’s Club here.
Here’s what the T&Cs say about these certificates:
Redemptions of Premier Third Night Complimentary Certificates are subject to the following terms, conditions and restrictions. Certificates will be added to a Member’s online profile at fairmont.com/fpc. No paper certificates or email certificates will be issued. Each Certificate entitles the Holder to one complimentary third night free, single/double occupancy Fairmont Standard Guest Room (two adults, excludes Deluxe, Signature, Junior Suites, Suites, Fairmont Gold room, Fairmont Gold Junior Suites, Fairmont Gold Suites) at any Participating Hotel. Specific rooms are subject to availability; blackout dates and limited access may apply. Certificates may only be used when the Member pays for the first two nights of a three-night stay at the Participating Hotel. Certificates may not be used in conjunction with a Platinum Complimentary Night Certificate or any other Fairmont or third-party promotions or packages. In addition, Certificates may not be used as credit towards Fairmont Gold Rooms or Suites or at Fairmont Heritage Place Residences. Certificate use at The Savoy is limited and subject to availability. Certificates may only be applied with advance notice provided to the Program Concierge at the time of reservation and when three consecutive nights are booked as part of a stay. Certificate use is subject to availability. Certificates are redeemed at check-in. If a Member requests that a Certificate be used at the time of reservation, but there is no Certificate available in the Member’s online profile at check-in, the Member will be responsible for full payment of all room, tax and other applicable charges. For black-out dates and limited access information, please click here. Charges for additional adults (i.e. over two adults) in the room will apply. Certificates are valid for room and tax only and may not be applied to resort fees, incidentals and other service charges, which charges may apply. Certificates cannot be used prior to March 01 of the issuing year. If permitted by law, Certificates will expire in February 28 or 29 of the following year. Certificates are nontransferable. Certificates will be void if listed or advertised for sale or auction on the Internet, in newspapers and magazines, or other similar means. Fairmont reserves the right to remove or deny without notice any Certificate it believes have been resold, transferred or conveyed contrary to this provision or otherwise acquired in error or under questionable means. Certificates may subject Holders to income or other taxes. Certificates are not eligible for redemption on travel-industry rates, airline crew rates, travel agent rates, tour group escort stays, packages or promotions.
I probably should start looking how to use the certs (at least the free night combined with the suite upgrade and the $$$ vouchers) before their expiry. There just usually aren’t Fairmont hotels at many of the cities that I frequent.
Good that President’s Club remembers its members. It would, however, be even better had they let members know about this benefit by sending out an email. EDIT: Fairmont President’s Club did send out an email about this gift after this piece was published.
