Gorgeous hotel with numerous amenities and restaurants
Expensive rates
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 its opening in 1888. The Fairmont Banff Springs possesses a grand exterior, and recent guests say that this historic hotel's interior matched their high expectations. Each of the 757 guest rooms and suites offers views of the woods, courtyard or the mountains. The food at this AccorHotels outpost's 12 restaurants and bars also does not disappoint. And guests describe the Willow Stream Spa as gorgeous, though its services lean toward the expensive side. Plus, active visitors can take advantage of the Fairmont's spectrum of activities, including golfing, skiing, hiking and horseback riding. If you enroll in the Le Club AccorHotels program, you can earn and redeem award nights and take advantage of other benefits for choosing to stay here. You'll find the property located about a mile south of downtown Banff.

There are many impressive public areas to explore at this iconic jewel, which brings to mind a magnificent castle.

Condé Nast Traveler


The 1888 Scottish castle is 'just majestic,' surrounded by the forests, mountains and lakes of Banff National Park. Staff are 'solid, polite, helpful.'



Pampering is an art form at the world-class Willow Stream spa. Restaurants, bars, and lounges of varying formality and cuisine create a small culinary universe. Riding stables and a championship golf course can be found on the extensive grounds.
