Fairmont President’s Club Great Rates

Five minutes of your time can save 50% on a Fairmont Hotel stay.

If you are thinking, “Yeah, I would like to save 50% on my hotel stay!” then follow my advice.

Sign up for Fairmont President’s Club today (membership is free) and make sure to check the box next to the statement:

“Subscribe me to exclusive Fairmont President’s Club emails providing news about Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, member events and special value offers including exclusive travel packages.”

The other day I made a comment that 95% of email advertisements I receive from hotel chains for special rate offers are a waste of time. Lower rates can quickly be found online using AAA or some other available rate offer.

Fairmont Hotels President’s Club loyalty program is truly an exception. (Marriott and Kimpton also regularly reveal some great hotel special rate deals. I do not find that many rate bargains with Starwood, Hilton, or Hyatt emails.)

Fairmont Hotels sends me a monthly email titled,

“Your Fairmont President’s Club Great Rates-Great Dates”.

The Fairmont President’s Club October email I received yesterday caught my attention with the low rates advertised such as:

                Banff, Canada $139CAD

                Montreux, Switzerland 159CHF

                Newport Beach, California $135

                Scottsdale, Arizona $98

                Washington, D.C. $139

                Waterfront, Vancouver $139CAD

These rates are exclusive rates for Fairmont President’s Club members. These limited time offers must be booked within 7 days which is  October 13.

Here is an example of why it is in your interest to join Fairmont President’s Club.

FPC member Great Rates-Great Dates for Fairmont Scottsdale are available for

October 10-14, 17, 18, 20-28, 31; Nov: 1-4, 7-11, 14-30.

 

I find it interesting that the biggest discount of 50% is on the lowest category rooms. Obviously the people with money for suites don’t need the biggest break. Slumming it for 4 nights in a double double at the Fairmont Scottsdale is certainly nothing to complain about at these prices.

The Fairmont Friends & Family rate is discussed in the FlyerTalk thread link. One advantage of this rate, besides the lower room rate for the Casita Suite, is these rates may be cancelled within the specified time frame. The Fairmont Scottsdale allows Friends & Family rate to be canceled up to 7 days before arrival.

Sign up for Fairmont President’s Club today and the November Great Rates-Great Dates newsletter will come to an email inbox near you.
