I was there at a conference. What a spectacular setting nestled in the mountains. Plenty to see and do in and around the hotel. The hotel is rich with history, dating back to 1888. You feel like you're in a castle. . Really enjoyed the pools at the hotel. One indoor pool had lane swimming, as well as a free...

I arrived to Banff Springs with my daughter in law and granddaughter. When we arrived, it was snowing and cold, as we had still shorts and summer wear on as we had come from the Okanagan Valley area in BC. The valet crew offered us the option to use them or park ourself. Definitely use them!!! We were out of...

Just recently completed a 3-night stay at the Fairmont Banff Springs in postcard-worthy Banff, AB. Loved the exterior of the hotel (it looks like a castle), the many lovely views to be enjoyed, and all of the history the property exudes. Overall, I'd rate the hotel 4 out of 5. Prices are high all over Banff, and you're easily looking...

We loved our stay in the Fairmont Banff Springs. The room was great. Clean and comfortable with a great view of the river and golf course. We saw elk grazing on the fairways in the early morning. There is a nice trail walk to downtown Banff, less than a mile and flat. There is also a local bus to bring...

From the moment we arrived at the Fairmont Banff Springs we were greeted by the professional and efficient valet team. The hotel feels like it's right out of a story book, medieval, beautiful and majestic. The Front Desk team checked us in and the rest of our experience was just as smooth. Sasha was lovely and drove us to the...

This is our 3rd visit and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit again...definately not a cheap place to stay but worth every cent. Be aware the castle is old and bathrooms are small but the grandeur of the place is awesome. We were treated with a snow storm yesterday but loved the huge change in the scenery...A Christmas look in June!

Slightly mixed feelings about this hotel. On the one hand the service was excellent - especially given we were travelling with my wife in a wheelchair and nothing was too much trouble. The views from the room were wonderful but the room itself was not. For what it cost ( far and away the most expensive we stayed in in...

Dear Tarah P, It sounds like even though your stay with us was a short one, you were able to take advantage of quite a lot while staying here at the Castle.
