I recently spent three nights in a "suite" at the Banff Fairmont. The Fairmont itself is lovely and the golf course and walks around it - in particular - are top notch. All the staff I met were kind. Here's the thing - when you are paying over $750 a night to stay in a suite, it should have ceilings... More

On a recent Tauck tour, we were able to spend 2 nights here and at Fairmount's other 2 Rockies resorts in Jaspar and Lake Louise. This is clearly the gem of the group. The scenery is fantastic, overlooking the Bow River and snow capped mountains, The rooms were not large, but comfortable and well appointed. From our window in Room... More

I used to work at the Banff Springs Hotel, back in 1985 and so I have seen many changes these past few years. What impressed me most was the efficiency of my check in and out, the ultimate in service and quality. I was given a choice to check-in online and I would strongly urge you to do this because...

The cost is high but the overall experience is well worth it. The property and guest services are considered the best and they live up to the reputation. I would recommend this hotel and golf course and will return when I am in Banff.

Excellent place to experience Canadian hospitality and the beauty of the Rocky Mountains. You will spend every moment enjoying the views, and the way you are treated by the staff. Just exploring the hotel ,its grounds and the surrounding area is an experience in itself.

We wanted stay two nights at this hotel but could not book it in time, so instead we spent two nights at Lake Louise instead and opted for lunch at Fairmont Banff Springs. Great architecture and great food at the lounge. Definitely worth the effort to book early if you plan to spend some time at Banff.

If you go to Banff Springs or anywhere nearby, you must stay here! This place is magical - just like staying in a castle. The hotel sits at the base of the Canadian Rockies, close enough to town to Banff Springs that you can walk. There is so much to do at just the hotel that you never have to... More

This is my 4th time to Banff Springs Hotel - unfortunately once you have been there you are condemned to go every time you revisit because, quite frankly, I would be disappointed if I stayed elsewhere. This time though just to ruin myself forever - we stayed 8 nights on the Gold Floor. Cheap, deal are not words you will... More

My husband and I had stayed at the Fairmont Banff Springs during the July 4th weekend. The surroundings of the hotel is beautiful! Easy drive to nearby attractions and the town. The room that we had stayed is at the Stanley Thompson wing, which is not the main building. The room is dated; probably need a renovation sometime soon... The... More
