    Great view. Great location. But the rooms were overpriced. I have stayed in hotels all over the world... this one wasn't worth the money. Location and view was great.

    Opened to the public on June 1, 1888 but only intended for summer use, it was not open in the winters until 1968.

    The spa has a fabulous mineral pools. The Japanese restaurant is first class but pricey. I wish they give us bottled water in the room.

    looks like hogwarts! filled with history! but I would stay at mount royal because thats by all the bars, clubs, and shops and u can walk everywhere. this hotel is a mile or two from everything else.

    The Fairmont Banff Springs is really showing its age. Particularly the hot springs which have dried up and now the pool is heated by a boiler that is often broken down.

    Gorgeous! It's like an old castle and makes me think I'm in a Harry Potter movie.

    Historic hotel with lots of places to explore, I.e. Ghost Bride staircase! If you are staying there as a guest, they have guided tours in the afternoon. We enjoyed our stay but our heater broke!

    Ambiance is breathtaking. Hot outdoor pool is a great experience. Checking in during peak days can take a long time :(

    We explored the hotel’s elegant interior, but what attracted us most on that sunny afternoon was the outdoor terrace restaurant with its spectacular mountain and valley view—a place not to be missed. Read more

    Before I knew Room 457 had a reputation for being haunted, the TV had turned on by itself and there was an image of the fire escape plan on the back of the entrance door, but it wasn't my door. Creepy

    $15 for WiFi when I'm already paying $300 or more for a hotel room? I think not. Get with it Fairmont.

    The Stanley Thompson wing is very nice, but a good 5 minute walk from the main hotel - a bit far!

    Brunch is overrated. Stick to the Waldhaus and the pub below. The a la carte breakfast at the Bow Grille is excellent.

    For ski rental go into Banff and rent from SnowTips. They have an excellent selection of skis including great equipment for kids.

    It's on the Spa page, but after 7 PM, it's $29 for spa access. If you have the time, it's worth it. Also, joining the President's Club is free and gives you free wifi and fitness center access.

    I don't wish a stay at this hotel on my worst enemy! This hotel has horrible service and even worse customer service. Their king beds are made up of 2 single beds pushed together. Never again.

    8th floor is haunted. There's a room (#873) which has been sealed up because a family was killed there. It looks like just a wall now but the ghosts roam the floor apparently. Beware!

    Beware of german tourists who ask you to take their photo, and then drag you around to gather their 20 friends and find the perfect spot. Then none of the pictures are good enough.

    Do not book from Expedia. We requested two queen beds and ended up with two singles. Hotel staff did not make an effort to compensate us.

    whatever you do... don't stay in room 457. It's made from an old elevator shaft and it's most certainly haunted...
