If anything truly defines Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, it is the value we attach to lasting memories. Building
upon a century of experience as hoteliers has endowed us with a rich tradition of hospitality. We offer experiences that are
authentically local, in hotels and resorts of unrivalled presence. And genuine hospitality is achieved when engaging service

would be meaningless without outstanding guest service. Our skilled and motivated staff is equipped with the tools and the
mindset to naturally deliver on this promise. Within a Fairmont experience, every guest is offered a warm welcome and is made
to feel special, valued and appreciated.
We transport our guests to extraordinary
places steeped in unique architecture, expressive décor and magnificent artistry. Fairmont locations don't just exude history;
many are nothing less than regional landmarks. Fairmont's physical presence and character will continue to inspire and excite
Fairmont's guests should experience an authentic
reflection of each destination's energy, culture and history. One that extends from the solitude of a snow-wrapped peak or
white sand beach, to up-tempo urban sounds of the world's most dynamic cities.

Willow Stream Story
Willow Stream is a story inspired by nature's
elements, the timeless landscape of each resort and its integration with the human spirit. The Willow Stream name and logo
were designed to reflect our story.
The strength of the Willow tree is its deep
roots, strong center and branch flexibility We think it paints a nice picture of our deeply rooted authenticity, and our belief
in a healthy combination of the strength of our body and flexibility and happiness of our spirit.
The Stream represents an energizing journey
through life - bending, curving and changing constantly in a peaceful but purposeful manner. The Stream forges a path around
any obstacles on its way to its destination.
The four circles in our logo are ancient symbols
representing earth, air, fire and water. The Willow tree represents a fifth element of wood. The balance of these five elements
is nature's equilibrium.
We know there is an intertwining relationship
between us and the land around us. We recognize it best in how we feel when we instinctively are drawn to the ocean to have
the ocean mist on our face or feel the waves fall over us. We recognize it in how we feel on a bright sunny morning, standing
before the mountains and taking that deep breath of crisp air. We recognize our connection with nature's elements in how we
feel on the first tee at sunrise looking over the awakening purple desert on the vast horizon.
Almost all cultures and belief systems connect
nature's elements to human beings. From acupuncture and chakrahs to eastern aurveydic systems, each of nature's elements has
been connected to a part of our human essence and to our five senses throughout history.
The purpose of each of these is to balance
all of our complex parts to allow maximum energy to flow. We chose simply to express this connection to the land in our symbols
of the elements and in the artwork that is part of Willow Stream's story.
Earth represents our body and muscles. It is
the core, our confidence and purpose. Water is our bloodstream and our relationships with our family and community. Air represents
our breath and lungs and it is our spirit soaring. Fire represents our body heat and skin and both our public self and our
inner passion. Wood is the food, the nourishment of our body and mind. Our energy peaks when we are in balance in our bodies
and our lives.
At Willow Stream, we have created an atmosphere
to draw upon the harmony of all of these elements in perfect settings. And, just as these elements are always carried within
you, it is our hope that you carry away your Willow Stream experience and the serenity and even inspiration of the surroundings
with you long after you leave.
The ball sits gingerly on the tee, you waggle the club head as you prepare for your back
swing. You raise your head and take a final glance at the target. But instead of eyeing a landing spot mid-fairway, you gaze
upon a mountain that seems to rise right out of the distant green. Alas, it's just one of the many hazards, other than sand
and water, of playing a round on one of the magnificent golf courses of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts.
Renowned for reflecting the natural grandeur of their locales, our courses have been designed specifically with nature
in mind. Whether a hole hugs a shoreline creating a tricky approach shot, or climbs the side of a mountain to a daring
green, you will discover layouts that intrigue your senses and challenge your game. Indeed you may also discover some shots
that you didn't know were in your repertoire.
Whether firing off the tee in Acapulco or lining up a putt on a green built upon an ancient shell midden on Passamaquoddy
Bay, our courses will instill golf memories that will stay with you long after you've checked out. It is a collection of golf
courses unlike any other in the hemisphere and we're proud they are part of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts.
