We stayed at Fairmont Banff Springs Oct 12 for 3 nights. The check-in was very smooth, they were able to accommodate us right away. Our room was not ready when we arrived but another beautiful room became available and we were able to go to the room right away. Any room you get, even a room with no view will have a view of the mountains around. The hotel is beautiful and has a lot of character, you really feel like you are in a castle. The rooms are nice and hotel interior is well kept and beautiful. The outdoor pool is really warm and you can stay there even in freezing weather, Indoor pool and hot tub is great too, no reservations needed. They take all the COVID precautions like temperature checks upon arrival, hand sanitizers, physical distancing, masks, booking a date and time for housekeeping we felt safe at all times. Service at the restaurants and bars was excellent. We had dinner at the 1888 Chop house, the steak was amazing. Breakfast at Vermillion Room restaurant was great, a la carte dining with great food options and drinks at the Rundle Bar were delicious. You can walk to the town of Banff from this hotel, also there are nice trails around the hotel with access to Bow falls and the town can be accessed by trail from Bow Falls as well. We got to see some Elks walking around on the way to Bow Falls. Easy access to highways, 45 minutes from Lake Louise. The town has lots of restaurant options, grocery stores and liquor stores open late. A wonderful place for a vacation, I would highly recommend it and would love to come back again one day. Maybe when it's warmer but the good thing about going in October was that it wasn't that busy and easy to find parking. There was already some snow but the lakes were not frozen yet so it was a special time to see some beautiful views.

Hotel's Favorite
We have stayed at this gem, many times over the years. From Ski vacations to just recently, long summer night. Looking to finally get away for our 42 anniversary , and Covid 19 lockdown restrictions lifted . We were checking hotels in Banff and came across the “Stay Close “ offer by the Fairmount chain. Stay second night on us, this made our stay more affordable, given it was high season. Despite the health restrictions, our stay was first class, yes most things were still closed , but the charm of this hotel and the awesome staff quickly erased any feeling of restrictions. The pool and spa were open , and we enjoyed dining in the vermilion room. We are returnjng in October. Thank you to all the wonderful staff.

Covid prevented an out of country vacation but an Alberta getaway for our anniversary to the Banff Springs did not disappoint. The Alberta resident offer made the stay more reasonable. Amazing service including a complimentary bottle of champagne in our room from the hotel and a card personally signed by some of the staff. Those little touches sure make a guest feel special! Spectacular hotel with breathtaking views. The Rocky Mountains never disappoint. Make sure to take advantage of the free ghost tour!!!! Hope to stay again!!

Thank you so much Fairmont for yet another amazing visit. Couldn’t have timed it better arriving while it was lightly snowing. And an extra special thank you to Daniel at the front desk who went above and beyond to make our stay even more enjoyable. Can’t wait to come back! Nicole + Andrew

I’ve stayed in the Fairmont Banff Springs a number of times over the years and I’m attracted to it because of its history, it’s magnificent location and it’s comfort. Our room was very clean and in good order. Lack of electrical outlets was inconvenient but then the building is old so we made allowances. Very comfortable bed, good wifi, big flat screen TV and a view straight down the golf course between the mountains. Bathroom was so teeny tiny it was almost cute. Service is not as good as it’s nearby sisters the Chateau Lake Louise and Jasper Park Lodge. Similar to a Hilton or Marriott in that regard. Good dining options and the main bar is very enjoyable with some great signature cocktails. The 1888 Chop House is excellent. Parking was annoying for me. If arriving late maybe consider valet because it was difficult for me to find a space (which cost $29 a day). Banff Springs is a very busy hotel so reservations for restaurants and it’s great spa are a necessity as soon as you know you will be staying there. It’s a short drive into town if you need to dine elsewhere. There are more modern options nearby but I believe a stay here at least once is a great experience.

Dear Roxtor, Thank you for your honest review. We sincerely do appreciate it and have shared it with our leadership team. We strive to have exceptional service, so if there is an opportunity to be better we will certainly work hard at it. As we design or renovate our guestrooms in the future we do keep outlets and access to devices top of mind. We do apologize for any inconveniences in this regard. The positive feedback will be shared with housekeeping, 1888 Chophouse and the newly reopened Rundle Bar. We are happy that you visited from Toronto and that you chose the Fairmont Banff Springs this time. We do hope you will consider us again in the future. - The Fairmont Banff Springs
