For $800 per night, $30 per day parking and $24 per day internet I expect an exclusive luxury experience. This hotel does not provide this. Thousands of tourists are bussed in off starting early in the morning until late in the evening causing long lines at the restaurants, bars and activities. I paid for an exclusive experience and had to... More

It is a Fairmont and a very busy one because it is a main Tourist location in Banff. The hotel view rooms are expensive and much of the ambiance is lost by all the tour groups during the day, much better in the evening if not too many tour buses checking in (8 buses today). But who cares, the view... More

not impressed. very expensive, took 50 minutes for our luggage to get to our room. 40 min. for our car to be brought out, dirty hand prints all over the door to bathroom, hair on the bed. Additional $35 for parking and 16/day for internet on top of the hotel price. The hotel and grounds however were beautiful
