I will write a dazzling review for the Lake Louise because of the fantastic location, and beautiful rooms. Which brings me to our current room at Banff. The comparisons, Lake Louise was updated, and the spaciousness of bathrooms was expected with the... More

Banff Springs Hotel is all about the building and the spectacular scenery! It combines this with excellent service, and a high standard of food. The standard rooms are small but comfortable, and we had a great view. Its an easy walk to town, if you need a change of food or want something cheaper than the Banff offers (although pick... More

We were moved twice: the 1st time because there was construction happening right outside of our windows. This room was absolutely gorgeous and I think if we had been moved to a room similar to it, everything would be just fine :) Our final destination was a room "in a separate hotel". I believe it was actually considered to be... More

Try the turret room! It has beautiful views and an amazing jet tub. Just make sure all the windows in the turret open otherwise it gets a bit warm on a hot summer night. Dinner at the Waldhaus is wonderful. Try the special Ceasar drink which is almost like an appetizer.

The staff is wonderful. The hotel is pet friendly and they had a dog bed and dog dishes waiting in the room for us. There are many rooms with wonderful views of the various mountain vistas - my particular room overlooked the Bow Falls and I fell to sleep by the sounds of the water. There are many food and... More

We had a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary at the Fairmont Banff Springs. From the moment we arrived till the time we had to depart the staff made us feel completely welcomed. We absolutely loved our room. We stayed in a junior suite in the turret. We had a living area and huge bath on the first floor. A spiral... More

We took our children and grandchildren to the Fairmont in Banff for our 50th wedding anniversary. Everyone of them stated that it was the by far the most memorable vacation they had ever been on. The staff, service and facilities are the absolute topnotch, bar none.

Even with a power outage, we had a great time. The staff was wonderful, the place beautiful. We opted for the Gold upgrade and we were very happy we did - free breakfast, lots of snacks. Still pricey.

We so enjoyed our stay at the Banff Springs Hotel on July 12, 2014. We were invited to a wedding that was being held there so decided it would be a lot easier to be staying in the same place and not have to worry about getting a taxi after all the wedding festivities were over. The room was to... More
