This time, we only had a short one night stay, but truly enjoyed our experience. We had a deluxe valley view room on the top / 9th floor - it's cool to be so high up in the building. The views were wonderful - we watched the amazing colours on the snow clad peaks change with the sunrise and sunset....

The Fairmont Banff Springs is located within Banff National Park. It is about 1.5 hrs drive from Calgary airport if you are arriving by plane. The hotel itself is massive with 764 guest rooms so do expect longer wait time. Check-in can test your patience because again, this is one of the only large hotels in the area so there...

Wow along with the Lake Louise Fairmont this hotel provides a dramatic location for a wonderful holiday. It is almost like being in a movie. Extremely good architecture and decor. Classic castle like interiors. Top notch service within all sectors of the property. We enjoyed every moment of our stay and would return often if we could.

It speaks for itself! What a gorgeous hotel! The staff and ambience is amazing! Store prices high, so consumers can get some merchandise downtown a lot cheaper. Restaurants worth their price in gold. The CPR Store was a let down considering that's the hotels start!

If you want to enjoy the luxury of Fairmont Resort accommodation then you can't go past "Scenic" for organization, pampering and fine dining!

We attended a fantastic swanky NYE party here!! So gorgeous & fun. Elegant but fun. Dinner, dancing, champagne. Most men were in tuxes- a few kilts!--- most women in long fancy gowns. Huge ballroom decorated & delicious 5 course dinner. Great live band through midnight too. So fun!

The Banff Springs Hotel is my favourite Fairmont property. This is the place where dreams are made. Words cannot explain how wonderful this property is. The food, pools, spa, rooms, and overall experience are all amazing. The gold floor is the best value. I would highly recommend.
