The Best Service!

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.

Amazing Trip

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

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.

Great! we stayed both in a regular room and at gold level. Gold level bathroom was much larger than standard. The concierge team was very helpful! Food at gold level was plenty to make meals! Spa was lovely.
