BEAUTIFUL hotel with amazing views of the Mountains. There is a lot of history from when it was built, its fire and rebuild. The spa is wonderful. Nice and relaxing. Staff is super friendly. Great place to stay!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 15 January 2017 via mobile

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...

The Fairmont Banff Springs is a lovely hotel, and I certainly had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. The staff is refined and helpful; they will try to accommodate all of your requests. They have numerous restaurants at this hotel, which is great...also, they have a small shop for minor essentials. Overall, their facilities (gym, pool, etc.) looked great,...

I had been to the Fairmont in Banff once before, but just for a drink not as a guest. I was attending a conference being held on site, and I was very happy to have a chance to be a guest at the Banff Springs. When I arrived I found out that I had been upgraded to the Gold Level...

How could you not stay here or its sister hotel at Lake Louise? This is an iconic piece of Canadian Rocky Mountain history. We were there for three days of skiing, so my review is colored by that. A sprawling, massive, beautiful resort. The concierge was amazing, he could help us with anything. The facilities were beautiful and even castle-like....

We had our wedding here, only very small and without a reception.

This will be the most comprehensive review I've written on a hotel but the Fairmont Springs Hotel deserves a little attention. We initially had an issue with our room (which we had upgraded to a suite) because it was in an annex to the main building and very small. We have two small children (4 & 2) and the hotel...

Expectation: A classic luxury hotel in the Canadian Rockies Reality: Everything you can ask for. It's a large property and very busy, but an excellent hotel in an unmatched location (caution: some home bias here)

I searched for deals before booking a week in the Fairmont. Lucky a friend got me a deal and I could afford to spend a great time in this marvelous property.
