Fairmont’s 100 Club!

2012 marks the 100th birthday of both the The Fairmont Copley Plaza and Fairmont Château Laurier but did you know both these grand icons of the Fairmont family join a prestigious list of centenarians?

The Fairmont San Francisco opened it’s doors in 1907 and since that date many have left their heart behind.

Together with Trinity Church and the Boston Public Library, The Fairmont Copley Plaza has been one of the architectural jewels of Copley Square since 1912.

The Savoy is one of London’s icons and like all good Londoners that are stylish to their core, The Savoy has seen many a scandal including the affair between Oscar Wilde and Lord Alfred Douglas.

Fairmont Château Laurier, had an ill fated start when the Grand opening had to be postponed when, Charles Melville Hays, the visionary behind the hotel, perished on the maiden voyage of the RMS Titanic. Since that tragic event the hotel has gone from strength to strengeth becoming one of Fairmont flagship hotels.
