Fairmont Banff Springs in Banff, Canada
A symbol of Rocky Mountain splendor for more than a century, Fairmont Banff Springs embodies peace of mind. This secluded escape in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies is styled after a Scottish baronial castle. From cozy guest rooms tucked into castle corners to spacious suites with sweeping views, you'll marvel at the level of luxury. Roaming elk, the Willow Stream spa and a wealth of fine dining make this a fascinatingly diverse escape.
Although known as home to some of the world's best skiing, as well as canyon ice walks, sleigh rides and dog-sledding, Banff is a year-round playground. The resort has its own championship golf course, and when you're not teeing off, you can head out for mountain biking, canoeing the Bow River, whitewater rafting the Kicking Horse River or a leisurely interpretive walk. No matter when you come, the Lake Louise Panorama Gondola is a must.

Reviews for Fairmont Banff Springs
We stayed at banff springs for a weeks skiing holiday. From the moment we arrived to the minute we left the staff were lovely. So friendly and very helpful. The concierge staff were great giving us all the info we needed to get around banff and to the 3 ski resorts. The forecourt staff were always on hand to order a taxi for us and if possible they would give us a complimentary lift into town. There is a free shuttle service to all 3 ski resorts and itâ€™s very punctual. A walk into town only takes 15-20 minutes. The hotel is magnificent inside and out with lovely restaurants and bars, and lovely cafe in the lobby. The outdoor hot pool is great, it really made the holiday for us, especially as it started to snow while we were in it, the views are spectacular too. The indoor pool and jacuzzi are lovely too, the pool area also has a relaxing area too. We had a room on the eighth floor with a forecourt and mountain view, for four of us, 2 adults and two teenagers it was a nice size room but a very small bathroom. The room was cleaned every day. Eating in the hotel is quite expensive but itâ€™s to be expected in such a luxurious hotel. All in all this is one of the most beautiful hotels I stayed in and itâ€™s got so much history too and a few ghosts! We had a fantastic week and Canâ€™t wait to come back to such a beautiful place.

When picking a vacation spot my husband and I frequently chose tropical destinations, however The Fairmont Chateau was a refreshing surprise. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The excursions were numerous and of a wide variety plus reasonably priced (not inexpensive). This hotel was not all inclusive but was still a value based on the quality of food,service and accommodations. Did I mention The scenery was breathtaking? Go to downtown Banff for quaint shops and local restaurants that will leave you with lasting memories or eat at the Chateau for world class cuisine and service that is hard to beat. The standard rooms are very basic, but in a classic and very comfortable. The views The Fairmont at Lake Louise are what lifetime memories are made of. While you are there choose to hike breathtaking mountains and canoe on the glacier water filled lakes, shop, dine, golf, horseback ride, trek through glacier fields or take lift rides up the mountains for views memories are made of. My favorite was a hike up the mountains to a tea room on a gorgeous secluded lake! The water in the lakes in this area are a breathtaking blue because they are filled with glacier water! âť¤ď¸Źâť¤ď¸Źâť¤ď¸Ź Bring warm weather and cool weather clothing, the temperature range is surprising!
The castle was beautiful! Front desk staff, except for one who checked me in, and a concierge were mediocre. I felt unwelcome and somewhat uncomfortable during my interaction with a middle-aged concierge. Bell service staff and a shuttle driver provided me a great service. The room was small but had a beautiful Mountain View! I donâ€™t think the service I received was worth the money, so Iâ€™m not going back there.
This costs a lot of money for an amazing view. The gondola is a great way to see the stunning scenery around Banff, but itâ€™s out of reach to many people. The $62 is too much for many. We could afford the trip, and loved every minute of it. But some of our group could not afford it. This would be 5 star if it was available to everyone

Beautiful location and surroundings, it is was on my "must see list". We booked well in advance and visited the hotel on June when it was not that crowded. Thus, we had the chance to fully enjoy the experience.
