10.0 Wonderful
Fantastic! What’s not to love at the Fairmont? Beautiful, historic, amazing staff. It’s a special place.
8.0 Very good
Pros:loved the location, staff were all excellent, loved the history and ambience of the hotel
Cons:Our room had no AC and the unit they brought in worked poorly. Management gave us 2 breakfast free fro our inconvenience, but hat was a poor response . Our room was very loud due to the portable AC and was warm all night because it didn't work well. I think Management did the very minimal to appease our situation. disappointing.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:stunning location and premises
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:This hotel is amazing in all Aspects
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:This was our first time staying at the fairmont and to be honest we were a little apprehensive. From valet to door to door service it was amazing. The kids loved being in a castle. The pools were awesome, they have in house bowling, movie theatre, winter sport rentals. We basically realized by staying there we didn't have to pack up 2 toddlers and a baby to go have fun. And kids under 5 eat free at their restaurants, plus the little touches like sending us all matching bathrobes and slippers even for my kids!. All in all we would do it again!
Cons:We had opted out of bringing our stroller this trip and that was the only thing I wish we had at the hotel as it's so big and we were in a wing far from the main building. Wish they had a stroller rental kinda thing
7.7 Good
Cons:They had a lot of restaurants but they open for dinner they said they closed at sunset which is 9:30 and they were closed by 8 one night at least 3 rest closed by8
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The difference between a luxury hotel and a Great Luxury Hotel is often attributed to the staff. I can certainly vouch for the fact that the staff of the Banff Springs, starting with valet welcome, registration, housekeeping, servers, supervisors and the myriad of behind the scenes staff can only be described as spectacular, and we thank all of you for making our 35th Anniversary one that we will never forget! The Buffet Breakfast in the Bow Valley Grill is amazing, and the elegance of the room is truly to be appreciated as you prepare for your day. In the mid day and sometimes in the early evening, we enjoyed the hospitality of the Rundle Room, a lounge like few others. The staff of the Rundle Room, especially one supervisor, absolutley run from one room to another, ensuring the high standard of service to all within his purview. Of Course the 1888 Chop House was the highlight of our dining experience. The champagne cart arrival shortly after we were seated was all too tempting. The food was so amazing that we had to visit twice during our short stay. At all times, we found the staff to be friendly, helpful and professional. Our 4 night stay was truly memorable, and we hope to return, sooner than later. Thank You all.
Cons:Leaving....and not having time to visit the Waldhouse Restaurant on site. I was looking forward to their schnitzel, but misread their schedule.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Loved tea at the Rundle Lounge! The overall atmosphere was lovely.
9.1 Wonderful
Pros:Injoyed the relaxing atmosphere
Cons:Bed and small size room
5.7 Fair
Pros:The grounds of the hotel are stunning! In a picturesque location and the outside of the building is fantastic!
Cons:Room wasn't ready to check on until 7:30pm! When got there, room was very dusty! Staff did provide complimentary breakfast as a sorry and were helpful, but a lot of money for a pretty standard hotel room!
