This is a great old, historic hotel set in an incredible place. My wife and I were traveling through the area so stopped for lunch. Although we were not hotel guests, we were treated exceptionally well by all of the staff members we came in contact with. Lunch was very nice and we enjoyed a nice time touring the facility....

Wonderful historic hotel that is well maintained. Staff are fairly new as it is the beginning of the busy season but all were very friendly and helpful. My family does not consider other places to stay when we go to Banff. Lots of things to do inside the hotel. You can even walk the hotel dog who is called Bear...

What a wonderful hotel. Views out every window, incredible staff, and world class service. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and the history of the hotel through the decades is shown on the walls. I have seldom been so impressed, and the hotel takes a back seat to the views of the mountains, elk along the roads, and the wonderful Canadian...

All the staff at the Fairmont Banff Springs treated us like royalty, from the parking attendants to the check in staff, it was obvious that they value us as a guest. We booked a king mountain view room and our view was spectacular (see photo)! Make sure if you live in Alberta to ask for the Alberta resident discount, our...

Great views, shopping Arcade, many Dining choices. Customer Service is outstanding. My wife inadvertently left her medication and some Jewelry in the room bedside table. The room attendant found these and we were able to retrieve these items with no loss.

Have never stayed at a hotel with so much history. From the minute you first sight this magnificent structure we were dumbfounded. Had the chance to stay two nights, unfortunately as we were on a tour we were given the rooms with a not so spectacular view, but that didn't matter, you can walk around this hotel for hours, and...

Our party of four went to the famous - or infamous - Banff Springs buffet and of course were overwhelmed with the amount of choice. There is an egg, sausage, bacon station, eggs benedict, a fish station, hot station, pancakes and waffles station and dessert. It is a fun treat to go and overeat, however I found not a lot...

I stayed here for 4 nights and unfortunately on the 2nd night, there must have been a party or dance at one of the halls as my room thumped until almost 11:30. I had to get up extra early the following morning and couldn't sleep with the noise level. This was the only concern I had over my entire stay....
