    This beautiful hotel feels like a step back in time. They have clearly worked hard to maintain the historical features. We had fun exploring its many corridors, covered bridges, ballrooms, bars, and restaurants. It seemed like everywhere you looked there was an amazing view. The room was well appointed and comfortable. Easy bus ride or walk to Banff for tourism, shopping, and restaurants.

    The Caste in the Mountains!!

    This hotel is probably the most majestic hotel in Canada!! When you factor in the building, history, location, service and its setting & views. Just amazing! Even the gym has an incredible view! The staff are all very good!! From the parking attendants to the front desk, bell staff, concierge desk, the restaurants/wait staff, the buffet breakfast staff all were great! Although I did have to remind them to bring my luggage to my room. It was sent within minutes!! My room was clean and had an incredible view! However the bathroom was tiny! But not really a place I need to spend much time in anyway! The steakhouse is pricey and I was expecting more for that price point. The vermillion room breakfast is good and worth it! And Stock although doesn’t have many options, it is quality! I would love to return and look forward to do so one day!

    Majestic stay!

    My entire experience from check-in to check out was 5 star. The views are majestic! I will love to return. I upgraded to Fairmont Gold and loved the breakfast, appetizers and desserts in the Gold Lounge. Definately worth it. Bathroom was on the small size but has all you need. Great views from bedroom windows.

    Great experience for all of the family!

    The experience was so great, I don't know where to begin. Certainly I can say the accommodations was excellent from start to finish. The surrounding areas allow you to roam to do a hike, walk to nearby downtown, go on a nature walk with ice cleats or snow shoes, go fat tire biking around the premises all courtesy of their wonderful Activities Dept. The food was excellent and had exceptional service. We enjoyed eating at Waldhaus and having Italian at Castello Italiana. Both restaurants have delicious food and impeccable service. On our last day we experienced a short history tour of the castle and a nature hike all provided by the same knowledgeable guide Scott. Thank you Scott for making our last day an experience to remember for all of our family. Altogether, the experience at Fairmont Banff Springs is not something to pass up. Thank you!

    Outdoor Walking Experience With Nature Sensei

    The outdoor trail walk with Scott is a must! We learned so much about the living ecosystem around us and his passion for nature is contagious. We saw several deer, bear marked trees, and berries used by indigenous people, Cascade mountain and the Spray and Bow rivers. We highly recommend the experience!
