Fairmont Residential Colleague Emergency Relief Fund

It is with a very heavy heart that we continue to witness the devastating aftermath of the Category 5 Hurricane Otis in Acapulco, Mexico on October 25th. Acapulco Diamante was devastated by the storm and has been closed since the hurricane struck. The entire city of Acapulco and surrounding communities have sustained long-lasting damage to all infrastructure (water, power, etc.) all of which causing extreme economic hardship to the community and our employees. We are happy to confirm that 100% of our team are safe, but many, if not all, have suffered great loss and damage in many areas.

The full extent of the hurricane’s wrath will not be known for months. In the meantime, the well-being of our Fairmont Heritage Place, Acapulco, Mexico Colleagues is our greatest concern. We have been actively gathering resources of support for them and their families who are enduring unprecedented hardships throughout this incredibly tragic and challenging time.

The purpose of the Fairmont Residential Colleague Emergency Relief Fund is to provide essential financial relief and recovery assistance for Colleagues experiencing unprecedented emergency hardships. The Fund is currently making distributions to assist Fairmont Heritage Place, Acapulco, Mexico Colleagues who have been impacted by Hurricane Otis which has been declared a qualified disaster resulting in a severe economic impact to the area.


The Application will be available as of Thursday, May 23, 2024 at 8am (PST).  The application portal will remain open until Friday, June 21, 2024 at 5pm (PST).
