"...Portside Walk is a kind of rumination on settlement and sorry, two euphemisms traditionally reliant on a judicial use of alcohol to maximize their efficacy. In recognition of this, I'd like to suggest:
the aptly named Alibi Room as an appropriate place to imbibe before you begin
and the very white naugahyde chairs of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Lobby Lounge, as the perfect place to reflect."
