I was one of the 30 contacted about the reservation.
For those of you complaining about the transfer to the hotel 4 miles down the road... Really?
The fairmont is PAYING for your room! Saved me 300+ dollars. If someone paid me 300 bucks to drive to the con, I sure as hell wouldn't complain.
I guess you did not read the entire post. When the Fairmont contacted me first they said I had to pay the same price for the hotel they were moving me to. I had to contact the Fairmont twice. Both times no mention of what hotel that was and no mention that they were taking care of the hotel cost. The only reason I had to contract them twice is cause they said they would email me details soon. Later in the evening I still had not heard back from them so I called again.
So I paid for a room at the con as did 30 other people. The Fairmont tried to tell me i would pay for the new room somewhere else without even letting me know where that is.
The director of CMR had to contact then to let them know they were violating their agreement with the con. CMR reserved the full amount of reserved rooms needed. The Fairmont is the one that did not save 30 rooms that were already blocked off for con goers.
Also, there are people that aren't so lucky to have CMR represent them. They are just without a room for the con cause the Fairmont screwed up. So the Fairmont is doing no one a service, they had an agreement with CMR that they have to honor.
CMR let me know that the Fairmont was in the wrong and the Fairmont eventually admitted fault. Until CMR contacted them, the Fairmont kept saying it was the con's fault.
