Mont-Tremblant, Quebec – Fairmont Tremblant has a Yellow Lab Gracie as part of the staff. Officially the hotel’s Canine Ambassador, Gracie is there to meet and greet guests, go for scheduled walks and runs, and be a community liaison. Says, Fairmont representative Joanne Papineau “Though she missed the opportunity to become an official Canadian Guide Dog by a snout, she is committed to her new goal of making every guest smile.”
Gracie came in as Fairmont’s ninth canine ambassador. She’s had some formal schooling with the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind in Ottawa, however incredible social skills proved to be better suited to the social life of a hotel ambassador, so she joined the Tremblant team.
Gracie is already very popular with children and children-at-heart loving attention and going for runs or taking leisurely strolls through the picturesque village of Mont-Tremblant. She works five days per week at the hotel. When not busy, she relaxes on her fluffy bed beside the concierge desk in the rustic, elegant country décor, giving guests a tail wag.
Other Fairmont canine ambassadors have included Santol at Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, Catie at the Fairmont Copley Plaza, Chunki and Kimi at The Fairmont Acapulco Princess, Sonny at The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, Dakota at The Fairmont Winnipeg, Holly at The Fairmont Waterfront and Mavis – Holly’s half-sister – and Beau, at The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.
