One of Canada's very best

Karen Anderson, Senior Ski Specialist

"Ordinarily a faux Scottish Baronial castle wouldn’t appeal to me - we have the real thing up here - but 'ordinary' doesn’t apply to the Fairmont Banff Springs – it’s got the ‘wow’ factor and a sense of history that you rarely find in North American hotels. Make sure you take a map from reception when you arrive, because the place is huge, but around most corners there seems to be a little bar or a restaurant so getting lost is almost a pleasure!"

Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel Overview

The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel is an elegant and luxury full service hotel, located on the edge of Banff. Designed in the style of a Scottish baronial castle, guests can expect first class service and facilities at this world famous hotel.

Guests can enjoy free use of the original indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs, or indulge in a treatment at the luxurious Willow Stream Spa - please note there is a small additional charge for access. The Willow Stream Spa is in our opinion one of the best spa facilities in the Canadian Rockies and is well worth a visit!

There is no shortage of dining options either, with a choice of 11 different restaurants and lounges - serving everything from sushi to steak.

Banff is a short 15 minute walk or five minutes on the local bus service, for which there is a small charge. The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel is on the Banff town bus service. See the link below for a map and location of the Banff resort bus stops.

Client Reviews
Toby Stock, December 2017

Perfection. The staff, the scenery, the facilities... Words cannot do it justice. The staff were the highlight though. Any hotel can pull off nice facilities, however the staff at the Fairmont were simply incredible. Helpful, friendly and an absolute pleasure to return to after a day of skiing.
