U.S. News Review

An imposing structure set against a backdrop of Alberta's picturesque mountains and forests, "Canada's Castle in the Rockies" has been wowing guests since opening in 1888. But while The Fairmont Banff Springs may possess a grand exterior, guests today claim that some of this historic hotel's accommodations are a little lackluster. Each of the 768 guest rooms and suites offers views of the woods, courtyard or the mountains. But recent visitors say the bathrooms are a bit cramped and that sound carries easily through the hallways. The food at this Fairmont outpost's 11 restaurants and bars does not disappoint, though. And guests describe the Willow Stream Spa as gorgeous, though its services lean towards the expensive side. Plus, active visitors can take advantage of the Fairmont's spectrum of activities, including golfing, skiing, hiking and horseback riding. Kids ages 4 to 12 can also join in the fun with bowling, rocky mountain rafting tours and Banff Goldola rides. If you enroll in the Fairmont President's Club, you can earn and redeem award nights and take advantage of other program benefits for choosing to bed down here. You'll find the property located about a mile south of downtown Banff.
