When we arrived in our room, there was a bottle of champagne chilling in ice. We went out for a while and when we got back, there was a fancy plate with 3 chocolates and Happy 45th Anniversary written in chocolate, and also a bottle of wine chilling! Little things like that made it so special. The view from our...

Hotel is great. Has lots of character. Had a Deluxe Slopeside Mountain view Room. Was really nice but a little bot small. Hotel is beautiful with great restaurants. Great little town. Also, great service!

I highly recommend the Banff Springs. We stayed four days and three nights to celebrate our anniversary. No hotel does it better than the Banff Springs. As good, but not better. Fifteen years ago, we honeymooned at Chateau Lake Louise. I liked Banff Springs better. It's in the town of Banff and close enough to Lake Louise to take a...

This historic hotel is my favorite place to stay. If you can only stay one night do so, you'll love it! The ambiance and architecture is amazing. Have a drink in the Rundle Lounge overlooking the Bow River Valley. Take a swim in the outdoor pool when it's snowing. It is truly a wonderful experience.

The hotel is historic and offers stunning views, fantastic service and an overall epic experience. This is that special occassion destination where you do not hold back and let yourself over indulge in the restaurants and spa. At every turn, you will be spoiled by the luxurious ambiance. Even the harpist is outfitted in medieval garb! The only complaint I...

The Banff Springs Fairmont was a beautiful place to stay in the middle of the mountains but still close and walking distantce to town and to the mountains. You are made to feel like royalty staying in a castle. All the restaurants were fabulous in food and service.

Okay, yes, the cost of a tiny and basic room is very steep, but trust me when I say it's worth it. The hotel itself is incredible. You could spend hours just walking around every nook and cranny, seeing over a hundred years of love and care in the hotel. Taking the time to see everything, and appreciate even the...

Stayed here in November last year, luckily we got a free upgrade to a suite which has a very nice view of the Bow river and the Rundle mountain. Spa and outside pool area was amazing, In room Dining was excellent, got free champagne and strawberries. Thank you!

Reviewed 28 September 2015

This is a great place for a once in a lifetime visit as it is extremely overpriced. The restaurants are ridiculously overpriced, there is a Banff Park entrance fee per day, and there is a $25 daily parking fee for a very bad parking garage with very small parking stalls and limited space.
