    Birthday in Banff

    We came to Banff for a short birthday trip for my wife. From the very beginning, the team did everything possible to ensure that we had an amazing experience; from coordinating flowers for the room, to arranging dining experiences and unique excursions. Thank you for making our trip a memorable one.

    Banff Fairmont excellent

    We loved the location and the old world charm of this hotel. Our room looked straight out onto to the Valley which was beautiful. We had breakfast here both days which was ample for our needs. We look forward to staying here again in the future.

    A dream come true.

    After dreaming of your hotel for 50 years, I finally made it...and loved every second. First impression was a real pinch me moment, and a lovely greeting from Rajath sent me into floods of ' happy' tears! He was so kind and understanding I didn't feel quite so foolish. We found our room and the view was stunning, bathroom small but perfectly fine. We wanted to get everything we could from our short visit, so signed up for the history tour with Alex, informative and fun and well worth the time. Can't comment on the food as we went into Banff using our complimentary bus tickets, but had a drink in Rundle bar on both nights and had good service and views both times. The outdoor pool was also on my 'to do' list, and was amazing, warm and inviting. We were also able to use the Rocky Mountaineer check in, which was easy and convenient. In summary, a bucket list hotel and dream fulfilled and I cannot thank you enough for keeping the character and charm of this building alive.

    Amazing stay at an incredible resort

    This resort is spectacular in every way. We opted for a Gold room on the fifth floor and it was completely worth it--the check-in process was seamless and fast, the concierge team was friendly and helpful, and the food in the lounge was fantastic! We ended up eating breakfast in the lounge almost every day and only went to a restaurant for breakfast once. Speaking of food, we ate at almost every restaurant on-site for dinner and each was awesome (our favorite was 1888 Chop House, but we also loved Grapes, Castello Italiana, and The Vermillion Room). We used the spa once for a couples massage, and that was also great. Our room was big, clean, and super comfortable. Most importantly, it was quiet and we slept great! We also did several activities through the resort: a full day private exclusive tour of Banff, a guided bike ride to the Vermillion Lakes, and forest bathing. We were lucky enough to have Scott as our guide for all three, and he was amazing. Extremely knowledgeable about the area, wildlife, and landscape---we learned so much! He was also just a joy to be around. He cares deeply about the beautiful Banff park and it showed in all of our interactions. We loved everything we did with him, but the forest bathing was truly special. Highly recommend doing it if you're in Banff. Overall, this was an incredible stay at a gorgeous resort, and we're already planning our return. Can't recommend it enough.

    Oh Danny Boy - we'll remember you.

    Danny was our most wonderful waiter. He was personable, knowledgeable about the menu, attentive and fun. He listened well and helped us order the most delicious meal which was all part of a truly memorable evening. Thanks, Danny!!
