I have stayed in The Banff Springs a few different times. I am ALWAYS impressed. I love this place. My favorite rooms are always in the Stanley Thompson wing. The suites over there are more secluded and have a fabulous treed view or mountain view. The suites are very large and come equipped with your own fireplace.
My grandaughters always receive a " princess " welcome package upon check in complete with with a tiarra.
In my opinion this hotel is the only place to stay when visiting Banff.
