This hotel is the best. Visited often from 2008-2010 for staff parties and enjoyed their party facilities and bowling alley. The grounds are incredible. The hotel is beautiful and has a lot of interesting history. The staff are great.

Completely accommodating, spectacular views of the Bow River, lovely in Winter or Summer, friendly attentive staff, no detail overlooked. The restaurants within and surrounding are all fabulous, and beautiful grounds. An amazing getaway for any occasion, business or otherwise. Absolute perfection, every time.

This hotel is an experience unto itself. Historic. The Willow Stream Spa is wonderful, give your self extra time to enjoy all the pools. Lots of great dining options on site or just a short walk into town to many more options. Great golf course too.

Most beautiful and fancy hotel I've ever been. Also the most expensive. But at the price you get everything you need and lots of you do not. Gym, dancing room, volleyball, tenis, football pitch. But I really appreciate, that the building is kind of connected to the countryside. Beautiful hikes around hotel and it's near the city.

We love to ski at Sunshine Village, and typically stay at the Sunshine Village Mountain Resort near Banff. It is a mid-mountain resort with strict arrival timeframes, so we decided to stay our arrival night at the Fairmont Banff Springs for one night to settle into town and prepare for the following ski day.

I don't know how many times I got lost in this hotel! But I certainly did not mind. Easier to walk outside the hotel from the lobby to the conference centre than try walk inside (Hotel room was above the conference centre). Amazing views of mountains from any window I looked out.
