Fairmont Donates to Eliot School

Neighborhood residents and this blog have been rightfully critical of many of the Fairmont Battery Wharf’s recent applications for late night alcohol service at over 160 outdoor patio seats and a valet license on Commercial Street. With a pending entertainment license, this strain might continue for a while longer. However, I wanted to post a bit of positive news regarding the Fairmont efforts to incorporate into the neighborhood.

At a recent gathering with employees, Fairmont Hotels donated $5,000 to its neighborhood partner, the John Eliot K-8 School. The relationship between the hotel company and the North End school is expected to include future school events and learning about the hospitality industry. It’s a good sign to see the hotel begin to reach out to neighborhood causes.
