I stayed here for 4 nights and unfortunately on the 2nd night, there must have been a party or dance at one of the halls as my room thumped until almost 11:30. I had to get up extra early the following morning and couldn't sleep with the noise level. This was the only concern I had over my entire stay....

Dear Ian W, We can't thank you enough for such a wonderful review and for taking the time to post it. We are delighted to learn that you had such an enjoyable experience during both of your stays here.

We went just for the sunday buffet which we booked about 6 weeks in advance. It was worth the price. An adult costs $46 but who cares it was worth it no rush the young lady kept telling us to relax, go for a stroll, make room, and then have some more. We will go again because it is a...

Extremely disappointing - bearer of bad news. 3 generations of family went to spend what was expected to be a wonderful experience, grandmother, daughter and granddaughter. Service was a disgrace based on the prominence of this hotel - world-class; maybe not that day. The poor waiter service for what it was continued throughout the High Tea, missing in action, forgetful,...

Beautiful area, friendly staff, spoilt completely by having a room under the bar where thumping music is due to go on until midnight. Room tired but clean and although it sounds picky there was no full length mirror. Tried to resolve situation with an apologetic concierge who offered us a different room just to sleep because at 9.30 at night...

My colleague from Boston and I decided to treat ourselves to a special lunch while visiting the area for the long weekend. So glad we did! Awesome patio seating at the back of the hotel with a breathtaking view of the mountains. A really nice menu selection at very reasonable prices. We were surprised! The food was the best meal...

The Fairmont Banff Springs is simply fabulous. My husband and I were at a couple's retreat organized by Family Life, and the rate for our suite was affordable (a first for me, having stayed at that hotel many times for 3-4 times the price), the service excellent and the views phenomenal. I feel like the price of the food and...

we love the "castle" as our daughter calls it. Staff is wonderful but the old rooms can be a little small for 3 people. We go for the quality of amenities (pool, food choices etc) but mainly the location. You can walk into town to the shops and restaurants or just enjoy being in the mountains without leaving the property....

Spent one night here on May long weekend before heading to the Chateau Lake Louise. Decided to splurge and upgrade to gold, our room was ready when we arrived (early). It was so nice to have personalized service and avoid the crowds on such a busy weekend with our own registration on the 5th floor, our car was valet parked...

More beautiful than the pictures! Stunning old-world hotel. Beautifully tucked away in the mountains and walking distance to Banff town. Only problem we had was some rooms. We were a large party (8) and had requested four similar deluxe rooms. However two we felt were too small and had bathrooms so small it was a squeeze to sit on the...
