I chose The Fairmount because of it’s size and location. The location was fine. It was within one block of everything I like about the Riverwalk but I was completely disappointed with the hotel and it’s amenities. The hotel is old and in need of updating. The bathroom fixtures are old and dated. The wallpaper was peeling and our sink was clogged. On our first full day there I notified the guy at reception that our sink was clogged. He was helping someone who looked like he was there to do repairs. What we didn’t know was that he was the valet attendant as well which caused us to have to wait for our car. Our room was not cleaned after our first night. We saw housekeeping carts but I could never find the housekeeper. I did however find a clipboard upon which they had noted that my room was clean-it wasn’t. I have stayed in plenty and of 4 star hotels. This was not one!

The first night we stayed was okay and the next day housekeeping cleaned up and left clean towels, the next night we stayed housekeeping didn’t make it to our room, so we had to call to get fresh towels and nothing was cleaned up because they were too busy with other rooms. The room was really dusty and the lighting was horrible. We had a mini fridge but no microwave.
