This is a breath taking hotel to say the very least! The staff treats each guest as if you are royalty. Our room was large with a king size bed and an attached sitting area. The bathroom was modernized. The lobby is huge and almost like being a castle. One of my favorite Fairmont Hotels for sure!

Stayed at Fairmount Banff Springs January 14. Upgraded to "Fairmont Gold" which is sorta a hotel within a hotel. The 5th floor is dedicated to Gold visitors. It has its own separate checkin/reception desk on the 5th floor. "Gold" has a huge lounge area with different areas, large screen tv area, common food area, quiet area, etc. Fantastic space. With...

We just returned from a stay in a Fairmont Room with two beds, which was a bit small, but functional and comfortable. I also noticed that the rooms had been recently l renovated, with new carpeting, wall paper, and furniture. You pay a premium to stay at the Fairmont Banff Springs, but it's worth it for the best views in...

My husband and I arrived for a romantic long weekend. I had high hopes and they were all exceeded. This place is nothing short of perfection. I booked a deluxe mountain view room. The mountain view is probably not worth it. We only had views from one small window and the other two looked out at another building. I would...

Highly recommend. The Fairmont is really something. I had a great time exploring the hotel. The service was great throughout the hotel. I had their Caesar at the bar, and it was spicy and delicious. Their grill is really great too.

We met up with friends and our kids are ages 3 to 9. I will never forget the view out our window! The outside pool is a highlight too. We skated on the big rink down by the Spray river. That was magical. I would try to book your meals before you go for dinners. There's Italian, a pub down...

Absolutely top notch hotel, service, staff, facilities, rooms, pools, conference facilities. I just can't say enough about the experience at this hotel. This is my 4th time staying at the Fairmont Banff Springs. From arriving at the front door, the valet staff are so polite and friendly (and will not accept a gratuity). The front desk clerks are always very...

We had lunch at Waldhaus Pub which was nice except food a bit rank. Wine good and an awesome Caesar. Setting is quite spectacular overlooking frozen river and ice skating area. Awesome mountain views. Hotel is a village in itself
