Majestic hotel, scenic natural setting, wonderful amenities in a picturesque town. This place gets the little details right, including excellent customer service from every member of the staff, to having a reasonably priced café for quick grab n go's all the way down to a decent workout space. The walk to town is easy, recommend the gondola to the peak,... More

The Banff Springs hotel is called a castle. There are so many different passages and staircases. The restaurants were wonderful, the food was excellent, and the ambiance was divine. Room was very clean and the service was excellent. Everyone at the hotel tried to make your stay special. Here's a hint for you----go to the eighth floor, turn left out... More

We have stayed at Fairmont all over the world but this hotel has to be one of the most efficient with very prompt valet attention and with a Gold floor that is so very good with nothing being to much trouble from any of the staff working there .The room we had was spectacular with views over the river and...

We only could get one night in the Banff, that was the only disappointment. The whole hotel has an amazing ambience. Everything a good hotel should offer, great rooms with comfy beds, great food and service . The walks around the hotel are wonderful and if you walk down to the village it has some great shopping.

This is by far one of the best hotel that I have stayed at. The location is gorgeous, right above the Bow River Falls. You can hear them from some of the rooms with your windows open. The staff is very helpful, the concierge Tanya was great with recommendations for our family and making all of the arrangements. It is... More

The Fairmont Banff springs hotel was absolutely beautiful! From the outside to the check- in area to your room, to the bars and restaurants everything was grand. The food was excellent, the scenery was gorgeous, and the people couldn't do enough for you. Great place to stay and play in Banff!

This truly was the highlight of our trip so far. It is a magical place with a maze of rooms which ties into its Scottish Castle feel. It wasn't unusual to step out of the lift and see people aimlessly wandering around looking for their room! We were also guilty of that. I'm sure there are many parts of the... More

This is a big hotel with all services. We booked a suite in the Stanely Thompson wing. It is a separate building and took while to get to our room. This was likely built as an add on and took two elevators to navigate 3 floors. The second elevator was almost like a service elevator. The hallway carpets are worn... More
