Alex is really knowledgeable and passionate about giving us the wildlife tour. I really recommend you take the tour with Alex. He will let you know everything about wildlife in Banff. We also attended the painting session hosted by Melissa who is very friendly and we enjoyed a really nice painting session together.

We loved our stay here! The service we received was second to none. On arrival we found a complimentary bottle of champagne and card to augment our 25th wedding anniversary celebration! The amenities are top notch! Our hotel history tour was informative and enjoyable. Thanks Alex! We enjoyed touring the grounds as well. The beautiful gardens are well maintained and well arranged! They are only rivaled by the natural beauty surrounding the hotel. We found the food to be excellent and service there was fantastic as well. We only wish we had more time to experience all they have to offer! When we checked out they assisted us in correcting and confirming a scheduling mishap with our tour operator and even booked us back into our room until our transfer was to take place. Thanks Carmen!

Stunning hotel and grounds, full of history. Staff were very attentive and helpful. Hotel is 133 years old and rooms are smaller than newer hotels, but they are still comfortable with amazing views. The spa is an absolute gem and worth every cent (trust me, it’s amazing). Cons: plug ins are somewhat scarce in the rooms, including only one side of the bed having a plug in, cost is higher than the ‘average’ hotel in the area (but this isn’t an average hotel either), parking is costly (similar to everywhere in Banff). We did have a repeated issue with our a/c unit that woke me up several times over 2 nights. Guest services and maintenance did everything they could to identify and correct the issue as well as ensuring we were comfortable and satisfied.

Dear Drpbnj, Thank you for your review. We are happy to see that our team was helpful and responsive. So sorry that there were concerns with a/c. As you can appreciate our building was working hard during the heat wave. We will ensure our engineering team does receive this feedback and we will ensure this has been checked/resolved. We hope your travels will bring you back again! Stay well. The Fairmont Banff Springs

I recently traveled to the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel with my mother and two others. My 91-year-old mother had worked at the hotel in 1948-49 in the Post Office that was there at the time. Upon saying so when we arrived to take a simple quick photo, we were welcomed in and treated like royalty. From our greeting by Deon as we arrived out front, to the front desk staff, to our discussion with VIP Concierge Don Mooney, to the table service provided by Lauren at the outdoor lounge - everyone was as friendly, helpful and accommodating as we could possibly have hoped for. Our visit far exceeded our expectations! We will never forget the experience, particularly my mother for whom this visit is sure to remain a standout memory for the rest of her life. THANK YOU to all these wonderful people!

We are regular guests at the Fairmont Banff Springs and had the fortune to celebrate a 40th birthday at the Castle in the Rockies over the Canada Day long weekend with a special upgrade for the occasion. Given the lingering impact of the pandemic on the travel industry we were prepared for some hiccups during our stay, but the team at the Fairmont Banff Springs was phenomenal throughout. I cannot speak highly enough of their team - this is one of the finest hotels in Canada, and certainly world-class too. I wish I could single out some of the staff for standing out, but the truth is nearly everyone we had the pleasure of dealing with was exceptional in their roles. If you're looking for a special place to stay while in the Canadian Rockies, you must not miss the Banff Springs.
