We were staying at the Fairmont for a wedding that was also there, and hanging out in the Rundle Lounge was something we did every day. There was great entertainment at night also.

For lunch, or a drink, or a place to sit and absorb the view, it is a beautiful space with a great group of servers.

We were tired from our long drive though Glacier National Park and up to Banff so we didn't feel like a big dinner or going out to town. This was simply sit and rest and have a sandwich and drink which is what we did. The server was great but unfortunately I didn't get his name. We had taken pictures... More

Wow! We'd heard the Fairmont encouraged people to look around their hotel, so we went along to look around and just have a cup of tea or coffee, expecting it to cost the earth. Not so!

This is one of the places in the Banff Springs hotel that stays open later at night and is perfect for cocktails. The ginger flavored one is so good, I took a photo of the ingredients to attempt to recreate it when I got home.

Located inside the Fairmont Banff Springs. Get a table by the window to enjoy the great scenery while you enjoy a few nice wines & snacks after a long day out touring around Banff

Extremely pleased with the services at the Rundle Lounge staff who would go out of their way to make a great experience for guests. I went there with colleagues and guests from China to enjoy an afternoon tea. I told the staff that I am lactose intolerant and alergic to citrus. Usually I just skip most of the dessert dishes...

The service is impeccable. The food is Asian slanted but accessible for those like me who wouldn't choose Asian. If the porch is open, it's one of my favorite locales for a leisurely beer while reading a book. the views are beyond incredible
