We thoroughly enjoyed our recent 2 night stay at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. This is a truly majestic property, either for a stay or a visit if staying elsewhere in Banff. The room was comfortable, staff were attentive and pleasant (especially the valet staff who went out of their way for us), meals (in the Grill and Wildhaus) were... More

We spent two nights at the Banff Springs Hotel and were very glad we did. We splurged on the Gold Floor, which is very expensive for what you get, but you do feel special. We found our room was very clean, modern, and had a nice view from one of the windows. The only problem with the accommodation was the... More

Our family of 4 (includes a 14 and 16 yr old) had a wonderful 7 night stay. We chose the FBS because we have always enjoyed our stays at Fairmonts. We appreciate and are willing to pay for great service and accommodations, BUT we are also careful with how we spend our money. We drove from Chicago and arrived after... More

We stayed on the second floor of the main building with what was supposed to be a view of the mountains. Well, the view was there along with the roof turbines and a lot of roof, very disappointing. The room was adequate, certainly not what I expected for the money and one had to be a contortionist to use the... More

Best service ever, but the rooms are old and expensive. Not worth it at all.

We stayed here for 5 nights on the Gold Floor (5th floor) and the extra cost was worth it. We had a private check in, nightly turn down service, free breakfast, 24 hour free drinks, and free happy hour. The most important part was we had a dedicated team of employees to help us with reservations, hiking trails, etc. Highly... More

We were in the convention centre which was a little disappointing. The room was good although starting to look a little tired, particularly the bathroom. Have to say though, overall it was a good experience. You have to join the Presidents club to get free wifi.

I care about what message to others a place in my community says. I am proud to live in Alberta and also in Canada. I would never want someone to leave anywhere, in both Alberta or Canada and feel the way I did after staying a night in The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. This hotel is world renown for being... More

Wow what an imposing hotel! It is slightly outside the town centre but dominates the area with its Scottish Baronial architectural style. If you are touring the Rockies this hotel is really a must do. Not the cheapest in town but quite seriously the best. Its a huge building - more a resort than just a hotel so takes a... More
