We had a super stay - it is an amazing property - fun to look around. We had a bedroom with 2 queen beds - the room was a fair size, but the bathroom was the smallest I have seen! No where to put anything! Reception were super helpful, we had the buffet breakfast - great service and food section,...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 February 2017 via mobile

I had the pleasure of staying for 5 nights for meetings & a conference at the resort. Check in was a breeze, bell service prompt and very friendly, and the room though small ( hit & miss due to the nature of the hotel) was spotless. My room happened to be across the hall from the " supposedly haunted sealed...

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special, Banff Springs takes your breath away as you walk into the entrance, the history stares you in the face, and we loved it. We were worried it being a large hotel, but the staff make our experience very intimate. We had a room on the 8th floor though not...

One of my favorite places to stay in Banff, there's so much to see just a short walk around the grounds and the hotel has tons of history. If you want to feel like royalty then the Fairmont in Banff is a wonderful choice.

Are you looking for a good vacation spot with some snow and mountains? If so go to Canada. One reason you should go to Canada is because of their food. For example when I was in Canada my dad got me a muffin every morning we were there and they were delicious!!! Another reason is that if you want to...

I've been to the Fairmont Banff Springs many times and have never stayed here. So, I've been the Willow Stream Spa on several occasions and dropped a ton of money (you'd spend less staying at a hotel), and have had grand lunches on the terrace. A friend from high school happened to be in the Banff area, so we decided...

This is been one of our best places to stay ever. With the food being top notch in the service impeccable polite and prompt. Little on the pricey side but been worth every penny to good investment for some relaxation service and our all-around great time.

Stayed for 2 days before going to Lake Louise. Room was in the original building and had a great view across to the mountains.

This is supposed to be a top notch hotel--my expectations were high, especially after having stayed at the lovely Fairmont Chateau at Lake Louise the night before. Apart from the beautiful setting, however, the service and attention to detail fell quite short for a high end property and made for a disappointing stay. Here are some specifics: 1. The room...

I hesitated to comment on a hotel without staying there, but this is a very attractive hotel. We explored the public rooms on three levels, with their exposed beams, tartans and Scottish military touches. The hotel, the second on the site, was completed in the 1920's by the Canadian Pacific Railway in "Scottish Baronial" style. Don't miss the display of...
