“Honeymoon made perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

We stayed at the Fairmont Banff Springs for our Honeymoon. We were upgraded to the Gold Floor and had an great junior suite. Amazing views, the room was perfect, the bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept in, and complimentary Champagne for our Honeymoon! We felt like royalty. The staff was outstanding. They were so accomodating and offered suggestions of places to eat, even suggested their favorite non-touristy places to check out. We were sad when our stay was over because we just adored this place! Can't wait to come back and celebrate an anniversary!!

The service at the hotel was outstanding and it really made the stay extra special! Check in and check out time was minimal.
We recommend that you take some time to enjoy the spa to take advantage of the atmosphere.

Best place to Stay in Banff is the Fairmont Banff Springs, truly an amazing hotel with so much history. The 125 year hotel is truly amazing and in great shape.
So clean and the staff so friendly. Enjoy it.

My husband and I had a weekend get-away at the Fairmont Banff Springs, and enjoyed our stay immensely. They kindly offered to upgrade our room to one with a mountain view with a King sized bed (which was very comfortable), and these additions made the stay even more lovely. One of the highlights of our stay was a visit to the outdoor hot pool. Lying on "noodles", we drifted in the steamy warmth of the pool while gazing up at the fantastic view of the mountains. While drifting along, it began to lightly snow, which added a nice touch. We enjoyed the wonderful Sunday brunch in the Bow Valley Grill, which has a lovely assortment of gluten free options among the great variety of tasty selections available. Their brunch offers tremendous variety, the best we have ever experienced. We had a lovely weekend. Thanks to the staff, who were welcoming and professional.

We stayed at this incredible hotel for two nights in May 2014. We had a room on the 7th floor. Stunning views over the river and complex.

Staff: outstanding and helpful

Rooms: outstanding, updated, charming, beautiful, comfortable beds, nice bathrooms, very roomy,

Location: close to downtown Banff, you can walk there or there is a good public bus system that takes you there and back

Restaurants: outstanding, breakfast has many choices, beautiful buffet, could not fault it.

Laundry: downtown laundry at in the Cascade shopping centre basement. You can do your own washing or you can get them to wash it and pick up later. We found this service excellent. Left the washing, had lunch and did a bit of shopping.

This hotel is beautiful, stunning, old world charm. A castle on the side of the mountain, a very special stay. The views are simply stunning. We would definitely stay again. We stayed in the beginning of May, we had snowfalls, all the trees, buildings were all covered in snow. A winter wonderland!

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent

Simply a classic hotel! I stay here April 28-30th for a business trip/ conference. The interior is like a maze! Stairs and rooms and turns with two mezzanines and a lobby it's hard to find your way around. The meeting rooms were all so unique yet fitting in design so as not to stand out an away from the overall theme. It's hard to find any fault with all the beauty and charm this hotel...and the staff and the food made it all worth the stay. I definitely stay here again...hope to bring my family next time though.

Splurge on a mountain view room it is well worth the little extra. This castle is worth a stay for at least a few nights. Staff and atmosphere are outstanding.The outside and inside pools are spectacular and no tipping except for food service. Meals are pricey but you get what you pay for. We ate in the village except for a trip to the Waldhouse, Easter dinner and high tea. All were worth the cost. Parking is extra and a bit of a hike. Highly recommend this property.
