    The Best Hosts

    Took advantage of some of the complimentary resort activities this week. The people from the Adventure Centre were awesome. Even plied us with ridiculously difficult trivia questions without any sarcastic comments over our lack of random knowledge. A most enjoyable evening. Will took us on a leisurely walk through the Snow White trails showing us many interesting features of the area. Would recommend visiting these people any time during your stay, you won’t be disappointed

    Amazing hotel, perfect staff!

    I had the pleasure of staying at Fairmont Banff Springs in January 2023. I have never experienced such hospitality! The entire hotel staff were amazing. They go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. I visited the spa while I was there and was pampered with kindness. A few folks I'd like to recognize: Steven, Rob, and Sarah with the Concierge desk, Scott Berry for the beautiful campfire experience, Alyssa with Rundle Bar and the entire Front Desk staff for give me 5 star treatment. The hotel is gorgeous and clean. I will be back, no doubt!!

    Exceptional service, great stay !

    We have stayed at this hotel before, but this time we decided to splurge for the gold floor, and I can say it is well worth it. The service is even better, staff is amazing, rooms and washrooms are renovated and significantly better. Th best part is the lounge, which is always well stocked, the breakfast was excellent, the afternoon tea and cookies great, even the evening canapés were fabulous, and we loved the small selection of desserts offered. Gio at the gold reception desk and Charlene in the lounge were both exemplary. Super nice small touches, like we had cookies in our room before arrival, and every evening, we had a little note on our bed stating interesting facts about the hotel along with weather forecast. If I could point out a couple negatives, for starters they could use a better quality toilet paper and, this is being super nit picky, perhaps a small selection of ice cream during desserts at the lounge would be the cherry on top. Overall, a beautiful hotel and we loved our experience and stay. 10/10.

    Winter getaway

    Stayed at Fairmont Banff resort in January 2023. Every little attention was taken care off. There is a range of complementary activities - wine tasting, stargazing, fire pits, skating, fat tire bike rentals and snowshoeing! Tried them all, Ewan at activities desk was a very professional and knowledgeable guide!

    Castle in the Clouds

    Coming here is like living out a fairy tale. Banff itself is a gorgeous town nestled in the Rockies. Arriving at the Banff Springs Hotel is like pulling up to the Castle from Beauty and the Beast. Its awe inspiring inside and out. Once inside the hotel its just as luxurious. There are many incredible restaurants, lounges, and spaces to simply exist in the exquisite beauty that the hotel is. They have maintained the history of the hotel and its available to read and review. The staff are incredibly kind and thoughtful in every aspect.
