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!

From check in to check out everything was amazing. Took a little bit to find the room though, particularly our fault for looking around. I loved the choice of restaurants and stores incase you forgot anything. Still decorated for xmas which was awesome. Upper level of the ballroom was my favorite place to be. (might be bacuse I got engaged...

If you want to enjoy the luxury of Fairmont Resort accommodation then you can't go past "Scenic" for organization, pampering and fine dining! Our second trip with Scenic (first was a river cruise in France), we joined the trip in Victoria BC on Vancouver Island. We were not disappointed - Cathy our tour guide went above and beyond for our...

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.

We travelled from Ontario to be in Alberta for a week and we planned it so we could end our trip with a BAM and boy was it worth it! It was truly one of those places that took our breaths away. My husband & I sat on those benches and just stared at the view. That hotel is definitely...

Very good Hotel. When you walk in, the lobby is split into 2, and looks very good. Still has stone wall, so it looks very old school. When I checked in, I had a corner room on the 8th floor, and I had both the view of the mountain and the valley in the 2 windows. The Room was comfortable...

Stayed at Fairmount Banff Springs January 14. Upgraded to "Fairmont Gold" which is sorta a hotel within a hotel. The 5th floor is dedicated to Gold visitors. It has its own separate checkin/reception desk on the 5th floor. "Gold" has a huge lounge area with different areas, large screen tv area, common food area, quiet area, etc. Fantastic space. With...

This hotel has great history...a little quirky with a tiny bathroom but this is easily explained in their free historic walk around the hotel. When you Book and want the best view ask for the valley view...If you want free Wifi join their President club. Definitely not a budget hotel but worth every penny...we will be back in May to...
