Loud heaters in rooms. Very expensive for what u get.

Beautiful hotel with excellent accomodations. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The view from our room was awesome and the bed very comfortable. Thanks for a great experience.!

The Fairmont Banff Springs is the iconic place to stay for an amazing experience in Banff. The hotel is beautiful, and the staff were excellent. We had the gold package which meant a special floor with breakfast, snacks, dessert, and a special check in / concierge desk on the 5th floor. We primarily interacted with the staff there and with the valet, but all were extremely friendly and well trained. They had great suggestions on places to eat, activities, and even brought us breakfast when they found out we had to leave early in the morning to catch our flight in Calgary. They have bicycles we used for free and the staff recommended a route around the golf course which was beautiful and we saw some elk grazing nearby. The room was a little small but adequate and comfortable, and we didn't go to Banff to sit around the room so not such a big deal. Overall, 5 stars and can't wait to go back!!

Everythig we expected and wonderful views of bow falls

We arrived later then expected and upon check-in we were not given much information and got lost trying to find our room. It’s a beautiful property but in hindsight it was not a very relaxing one night stay on our road trip.

My wife and I have stayed at many hotels, chains and boutique, this one is easily in the top 3. From the moment you are greeted by the Bell Hop to your final goodbyes, you are treated exceedingly well. The hotel offers many amenities that wont leave you wanting. We chose to stay a day in the Spa and that was well worth it. We also go upgraded to the Gold Level which was unbelievable. The staff was overly attentive and made you feel very welcomed. Special thanks to the concierge on the Gold Level, you all are the best.

The hotel itself is beautiful, the staff is amazing and make your stay well worth the while, and we would stay again for sure! The only complaint, and it was a big one, was we paid quite a bit extra for a Suite with a view expecting something amazing. The room was nice, but the view was kind of obstructed because it was a lower floor. It was also very noisy as it was directly across from the elevators. If it was a base-level room that would have been fine, but considering we paid more for an upgrade to what we thought would be a great view we were a little disappointed. If you stay here, I'd recommend to try to sort out the room location ahead of time or don't pay for an upgraded room. Everything is nice here, everything is beautiful, don't pay for an "upgrade" that isn't really an upgrade.

Great overall experience. Staff very friendly and courteous. I knew it was going to be pricey but wanted the whole experience of Banff. I wish I had allowed time to enjoy the hotel grounds to make it more worthwhile. Room had a great view after we paid for an upgrade. Room amenities and comfort are so so.

Beautiful hotel inside and out. Amazing views from the "mountain view" rooms. If you have the opportunity upgrade to Fairmont GOLD. Included is a hot buffet breakfast, appetizers before dinner, and deserts after dinner. All in a private lounge that has some board games to play and DVDs that you can borrow. Room looked new renovated with a nice bathroom, large TV, and bose stereo. Take the time to explore around the area and the town of Banff while staying.

Amazingly beautiful, historic hotel with a spectacular view from every room!

Beautiful property, well establish with service that was a nice surprise to us. We were upgraded to Gold for our 17th wedding anniversary and the only downside was we wished we stayed an extra night! Would go back.

We believe William Cornelius Van Horne said it best, “Since we can’t export the scenery, we’ll have to import the tourists.” Thanks to his vision, we have been fortunate enough to share such spectacular views with guests since 1888. We are delighted to hear your experience has met these expectations and you were able to explore more of the Castle! -Fairmont Banff Springs
