Fairmont Princess

Fairmont Princess

Dating to 1885, the hotel embodies Bermuda's history as a vacation destination—all chronicled on a wall with photographs and notes—and continues to serve as the island's "Grande Dame" social center. Expansions over the decades created a business/vacation hotel arrayed on 400 yards of harbor front.

Fairmont Princess Room

The hotel offers 410 carpeted, air-conditioned guestrooms in a six-story main building, a seven-story wing, and two three-story wings—all colored pink and white. Room decor features 19th-century-style mahogany furniture with polished brass hardware, gilt-frame mirrors, and bright Bermudian art. Beds include triple sheeting and down comforters. High-speed (T1) connections at work desks provide Internet access. Televisions carry U.S. cable channels and offer pay movies.

Guests of Fairmont Gold rooms enjoy exclusive access to an enormous, lobby-size Gold Lounge and a complimentary boardroom with 14-seat conference table. The lounge features private check-in, concierge service, butler, crystal chandeliers, a vaulted ceiling containing Wedgewood china insets, a fireplace, tall windows with drapes and sheer curtains, overstuffed furniture, and a decor of 100 pastel colors. Fairmont Gold guests are served complimentary deluxe Continental breakfast; complimentary afternoon tea; complimentary evening appetizers, wine, and cheese; and complimentary bottled water and soft drinks all day in the lounge, which also includes a honor bar.

Fairmont Princess Property


The hotel's storied history includes service during World War II as the Allies' Atlantic intelligence center, housing 1,200 agents known as the Princess Spies. A $25-million renovation completed in 2002 refreshed the hotel without affecting its colonial style.

Although not on a beach, the hotel features two 90-by-35-foot pools, one freshwater and the other saltwater, surrounded by terra-cotta sundecks furnished with lounge chairs. A lighted concrete path with teak deck chairs runs 400 yards along the harbor. From here, guests take a complimentary shuttle boat 25 minutes across the harbor to a companion resort, the Fairmont Southampton, where they enjoy access to a private beach; an 18-hole, par-3 executive golf course; a 30,000-square-foot health-and-beauty spa featuring a large indoor pool and spacious spa tubs on ocean-view sundecks; and nine restaurants, including one in a house dating from the mid-17th century.

Insider tip: Writer Mark Twain visited Bermuda regularly for 43 years, once writing of the island, "You may go to Heaven if you want to. I'd druther stay here." He'd relax on the Hamilton Princess' veranda, reciting poetry and regaling guests with tall tales while puffing on cigar or pipe. Inside the lobby a bronze statue of Twain sitting on a teak bench with arm extended along the bench's back allows guests to take a seat and have their photographs taken.

Facilities include numerous shops and boutiques; an air-conditioned fitness center; a full-service business center; and a beauty salon offering massage, facials, waxing, and hair and nail care.
