The Best Service!

By: Sarah O.

Reviewed on: 23 Jun 2015

A gorgeous hotel - stunning from the outside. Wonderful food, clean and nicely updated rooms, even if a bit small (especially the bathroom). Beautiful location - afternoon tea overlooking the river and snow capped mountains is hard to beat! But, the best part is the service - we've traveled a lot, and this is by far the best service that we have ever had. From the front desk, to the bell-people, to the servers, to the valet... just great attention to detail. Clearly they want their guest to feel like GUESTS! Would definitely return.

From stunning views, delicious food, and the most friendly people, The Fairmont Banff Springs did not disappoint. The Willow Steam Spa was one of the best we've ever gone too. It wasn't too crowded and everything was relaxing and welcoming. We are already discussing going back next year.

Simply Stated; FABULOUS

By: Johnnyo

Reviewed on: 28 Dec 2017

No words can adequately express the quality of both the property and the staff. You're always greeted by name, conversations are initiated by the staff, the politeness is exquisite and the decor is very warm. We were there in December and the hotel and surrounding property is beautifully decorated for Christmas. My wife LOVED the spa and the various treatments. I'm told their spa ranks in the Top 5 within North America and we certainly agree. We will return soon and we'll stay longer because its a difficult place to leave... especially if you're staying on the President's Club floor which is highly recommended. Thank you Banff Springs for a FABULOUS stay and experience. You're the BEST. See you soon.

Our stay at the Fairmont was spectacular as always. Our daughter really was delighted with the chocolate covered reindeer strawberries and tiara that was presented to her upon arrival. The staff went out of their way to ensure we had a wonderful stay, great meals and a very memorable experience.

We loved The Fairmont Banff Springs. The hotel itself is beautiful and we loved our room, but the staff are what really make it special. Everyone was so nice, helpful, and accommodating from the time we were walking up with our luggage until we checked out. The hotel is clean and so well-run, and we enjoyed the spa and the restaurants. Just sitting on the terrace looking at the mountains is magical! Would highly recommend this hotel, especially for special trips like honeymoons!

Large hotel of the area but staff was efficient and helpful. Breakfast buffet or breakfast itself was more that adequate except again could not get a good danish. Beautiful hotel and well done flowers and landscaping. The main restaurant for meat was well staffed but could not do a proper bake potato, a proper salad (served with warm lettuce) nor a proper soup (served tepid, not warm but tepid). As with all the Fairmont Hotels in this area, all were very handicap accessible with automatic doors, ramps and appropriate bathrooms.

This hotel is unlike anywhere I have ever stayed before, even outshining an actual Scottish castle I have visited. I joked when we arrived that all that was missing were stuffed animal heads on the walls. Then I found them in the Gatehouse! The service was impeccable, the position spectacular, the spa a delight, and the view from our room worth a million dollars.

Beautiful! I requested a winter wonderland and The Fairmont Banff Springs did not disappoint. From Christmas trees in every corner of every room, to the "Real Santa" according to my 6 year old actually being in the hotel, to the entertainment and events it was fabulous. One thing to note is that the hotel is an older castle with extensions so anybody with any level of waling disability should request a room in the main hotel as there are many sets of stairs and not everywhere is accessible without going up or down a staircase. We have a 3year old that does not walk so we take her around in a stroller. This has never been an issue prior however we weren't expecting the level of carrying the stroller up and down stairs we ended up doing due to where our room was located in the Gatehouse. However that aside wonderful stay, great staff, good food.
