Fairmont Battery Wharf Opens Today

12/15/2008 12:08:00 AM
For those of you that haven't been following this story, the hotel used to be a Regent until they pulled out (here). Luckily, the Fairmont came by and took over. A friend of mine works for one of the companies involved with the construction of the new Fairmont Hotel @ Battery Wharf so I actually got to take a tour a few weeks back - it's pretty nice in there. Oh, and it opens today - at least part of it.

Despite challenging times, the new Fairmont Battery Wharf, with daily room rates starting above $400, won't be scaling back on services or amenities even though travelers are clamping down on expenses.

The $300 million luxury hotel and residence development will open in phases, with 45 guestrooms available on Monday and the rest at the end of January. Bookings have been "wonderful," Sterne said, with more than 70 percent of next week's available rooms reserved.


$400 a night is a bargain I suppose when compared to the Mandarin Oriental which I think is $700 and up.
