Icon of Quebec City

Posted By: Lagiosv

Arriving at the Chateau Frontenac is like walking into a fairytale. On the breathtaking waterfront of the Saint Lawrence River, I took in the old world charm and the smell of crepes before entering this majestic castle, which is the icon of all of Quebec.

I was made to feel like royalty throughout the visit. Magical.

The Prize

100,000 miles (Aeroplan Miles for Canadian residents and United MileagePlus miles for US residents) and a $500 Fairmont Hotels & Resorts gift card.

Second prize winner

Henry's First Birthday

Posted By: cavefish

After a cold and rainy summer in Calgary, we decided to take a vacation to celebrate Henry's first birthday on the West Coast. It was the perfect way to experience a bit of summer heat! We all really enjoyed being pampered at the Fairmont Pacific Rim in Vancouver. Nothing beats relaxing in a fluffy Fairmont robe on your birthday!

The Prize

$300 Fairmont Hotels & Resorts gift card to use on room, dining, spa or activities.

Third Prize

Third prize winner

Best road trip ever!

Posted By: Tejas Mehta

My family took a road trip from Seattle to the Canadian Rockies this summer and one of the highlights of the trip was to spend a week at the Fairmont at Banff Springs. The experience was nothing short of spectacular - from the activities at the property to all the surrounding beauty of the park, including our luck in spotting all kinds of wildlife. We found our new favorite getaway on this trip and hope to make it back soon.

The Prize

$100 Fairmont Hotels & Resorts gift card to use on room, dining, spa or activities.
