About Organization
Fairmont Hotels offer more than luxurious rooms, world-class dining and amazing locations. They help guests create lasting memories. Perhaps this is why so many celebrities, royalty, politicians and artists have made their favorite Fairmont hotel their home away from home. Claude Monet painted evocative scenes of London during several visits to The Savoy.
In fact, scientists have pin-pointed which balconies he painted from based on the lighting conditions in his canvases.  Noël Coward recovered from the flu and finished his comedy Private Lives in the penthouse of Fairmont Peace Hotel in Shanghai. And the roster of Hollywood’s A-list of celebs and stars is endless.
Our hotels have been called upon for starring roles in historic events. The UN Charter was drafted and signed by 50 countries in the Garden Room of Fairmont San Francisco. William Lyon Mackenzie King hosted Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt at Fairmont Le Château as the two men drew up plans for the Normandy invasion of Europe. 
Lennon and Yoko Ono made history with their Bed-in for Peace at Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth in Montreal, when the former Beatle penned the lyrics and recorded “Give Peace a Chance”, which became the anthem of the anti-war movement. Favored by royalty, our iconic hotels have welcomed Queen Elizabeth II in every decade of her reign.
We’ve also welcomed local notables to their debutante balls, hosting countless afternoon tea dances and lavish galas. Whether it’s a headline-making event or providing an outpost for the code-breaking headquarters of British Intelligence in Bermuda, our goal is to deliver an exceptional experience to every guest.
