This iconic hotel would quickly go out of business if it had meaningful competition. The building is historic and interesting in a ramshackle sort of way. Banff is spectacular, and the opportunities for hiking, animal spotting, and natural wonder touring are fantastic. Many of the hotel's public spaces are a wonderful throwback to the Trans Canada Railway heyday, and the...

Dear Ian W, We can't thank you enough for such a wonderful review and for taking the time to post it.

The hotel complex is vast and had a number of large coach tours staying. It is located a 1km walk from the shops and restaurants but has 6 or more on site restaurants and a number of shops inside too. We had a mountainview king room, which was barely large enough for 2 people with a tiny bathroom. The outside...

The first impression of the hotel is like Hogwarts. It is a magnificent castle dating back to 1888 as the lively Rachel gleefully informed us as we queued to check in. When learning we came from Scotland she was even more enthusiastic in encouraging us to view the historical displays. The hotel is huge and rambling - I think I...

I was there at a conference. What a spectacular setting nestled in the mountains. Plenty to see and do in and around the hotel. The hotel is rich with history, dating back to 1888. You feel like you're in a castle. . Really enjoyed the pools at the hotel. One indoor pool had lane swimming, as well as a free...

Dear Ryleegirl1022, Even though you were here for a conference, it sounds like you were able to take advantage of some of the things that make Banff truly special and we agree, you don't have to be a skier to enjoy what Banff National Park has to offer year round!

I arrived to Banff Springs with my daughter in law and granddaughter. When we arrived, it was snowing and cold, as we had still shorts and summer wear on as we had come from the Okanagan Valley area in BC. The valet crew offered us the option to use them or park ourself. Definitely use them!!! We were out of...

Just recently completed a 3-night stay at the Fairmont Banff Springs in postcard-worthy Banff, AB. Loved the exterior of the hotel (it looks like a castle), the many lovely views to be enjoyed, and all of the history the property exudes. Overall, I'd rate the hotel 4 out of 5. Prices are high all over Banff, and you're easily looking...

We loved our stay in the Fairmont Banff Springs. The room was great. Clean and comfortable with a great view of the river and golf course. We saw elk grazing on the fairways in the early morning. There is a nice trail walk to downtown Banff, less than a mile and flat. There is also a local bus to bring...
