“Amazing wait staff”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Even during a very busy time in the lounge with a wedding going on, the wait staff didn't miss a beat. They made great drink recommendations and knew the drink menu really well.

“Great view but very average food”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Our annual company trip took us to Banff and Vancouver. We had a wonderful time at the hotel and the stay was extra special by staying on the gold level. The eight of us had dinner in the Rundle Lounge. The restaurant was offering a limited menu from their barbecue. The food was average but two of the items had to be sent back because they were cold. Prices were high but you expect that at a Fairmont.

“Special anniversary treat”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Checked in late at the hotel after a long drive and by the time we went down for dinner most of the restaurants were closed so we went to this lounge instead and had a wonderful experience. Good food, great view and excellent service. It was also our anniversary and our server prepared a special dessert for us, which was really nice. Overall a great experience and will definitely recommend.

“Great Patio with amazing view!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

On our road trip we did a quick stop in Banff- we wanted a great patio and a cold drink! I had always wanted to tour in the Banff Fairmont because I heard it was amazing! I was in awe the whole time while making my way to the patio! Patio is awesome and has a spectacular view! I chose the steak salad (apron $19) and I totally had a few daiquiris ($10 ea)! The food was great and a light snack that didn't cost us too much! I found our drinks were a little pricey but that comes with almost any high end hotel. Our server was Sarah and she was great! The patio has lots of sun and even when I made a comment that I should have wore sunscreen they were quick to bring me some! Once again - the Fairmont never disappoints!

Dear Valued Guest from Woodstock, Thank you for taking the time to write this review about your recent stop off at The Fairmont Banff Springs when you enjoyed a wonderful experience on the Rundle Patio. I was very pleased to read you really enjoyed the food and beverage, and Sarah provided you outstanding engaging service, even to the point of providing you sun block. Thank you once again and I certainly hope your travels do bring you back to the Canadian Rockies and to Banff, plus I hope you had a safe trip home to Ontario. Regards, Edward J. Roe, Hotel Manager, The Fairmont Banff Springs.

“wonderful place to spend the late evening hours”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

This lounge in the Fairmont has wonderful selection of cocktails, wines, and food is available too. The best part is the view, the big open windows and the outdoor fire pits where people gather and converse. When the evening gets chilly, people wrap in blankets to sit by the fire. There is live music on some evenings, too.
A wonderful spot in the Fairmont Banff Springs.
