It was amazing - a true experience.

Very Good8.0
Impressive luxury
A fabulous Hotel in a great location - but beware, prices are high for most items. To park your car overnight even as a guest is $25 - very excessive to say the least and no doubt the reason the car park was half empty! ( and this is high season )
Robert, gb2 night romance trip
Fairmont Banff Springs
Ultimate Hotel Stay
The most beautiful location I have ever stopped in surrounded by the Rocky Mountains and blue green glacial rivers, close to Banff itself was a short walk past the Bow Falls. Absolutely Fab!! Service was faultless, food, facilities were all absolutely top drawer
Andy, gb5 night business trip
Fairmont Banff Springs
Everyone loves the Fairmont!
Loved the Fairmont Banff Springs! All the staff were amazing and hospitable. Only one encounter was the mouse at Rundle Lounge - I guess it's expected at such a heritage building.
Adam, ca2 night romance trip
Fairmont Banff Springs
This Hotel is as good as it looks in the pictures. The people are friendly and very helpful. Location is walking distance to Banff and several other attractions. We loved it.
