This is a must-see in Banff!! The hotel (1888 Castle) is amazing & spectacular in the winter! We were lucky enough to get great views of the beautiful snowcapped mountains at lunch. The food & service were excellent too!!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 February 2017 via mobile

I had the pleasure of staying for 5 nights for meetings & a conference at the resort. Check in was a breeze, bell service prompt and very friendly, and the room though small ( hit & miss due to the nature of the hotel) was spotless. My room happened to be across the hall from the " supposedly haunted sealed...

I like all of the Fairmont Châteaux Hotels and have been lucky to have stayed at 4 or 5 of them. This one has a great spa with mineral waters and very interesting public spaces-be sure to take the tour. My shared room was small but that's OK with me since I was in such a beautiful setting. Nice service,...

Easy walk along snow covered paths to downtown and could see wild Elk along the way. Highly recommended for a winter snow stay. Hotel has shuttle car service too that was very hand plus local bus...

However, the room I had was well below what I had expected considering the cost and reputation. The room (single room) was tiny and above a driveway. Because of this, the...

Very classic and very elegant hotel situated in a national park. What the Hotel del Coronado is to California this place is to the Rockies. About a two hour drive from Calgary Airport (YYC.) Spacious rooms with very fine furniture. Many dining options on site. The Spa (Willow Stream) is worth the trip by itself. Many connections to outdoor activities,...

This is a 5 plus star hotel. It is absolutely beautiful. The staff is courteous and constantly looking to please. The view is unbelievable. The room is cozy and a good size. We ate at the chopped house and the Italian restaurant, both were unbelievable. We can't wait to go back.
