    Luxury at it's finest.


    Friend's of mine were visiting Alberta so we decided to splurge and share a room at the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel.

    Unique Quality: This place is a castle for sure. So many amenities that we didn't even get to check out. There is a pool with piped in underwater music, spa, café that makes the best almond milk chai frappe's, liquor store, convenience store, bowling alley and various restaurants, pubs, boutiques and golf on site. You really don't even need to leave the grounds. The terraces all have amazing views of the mountains. The rooms themselves are nice - the beds are comfy and the place is decorated in old world charm. But they are not spectacular by hotel standards- it's the grounds and the name you are paying for. But it is well worth it for a night of luxury and treating yourself.

    The original meaning of Luxury


    We didn't actually stay. We spent and hour and toured the building and grounds. Yup, they offer tours.

    Unique Quality: The Banff Springs is the original hotel of the railroad and offered the highest class service to it's guests. Everything was deluxe including the view and services. The Central Pacific built the hotel to provide a quality place for guests to stay while visiting the hot sulphur springs. This created an alternate traffic beyond freight and helped build the territory and the railroad.

    Banff's hotel Icon


    I have never stayed here because A) it is only an hour away from home and B)It is expensive and more than we spend on hotels. Having said that, the Banff Springs hotel has long been an Icon in the area and if your looking for qualtiy accomodation in the Rockies, this tops the list.

    This is a great hotel for everybody.

    We got a free upgrade to a suite just having a Visa Gold Card. The view was breath taking and the service was great.

    It takes a little while for the vallet parking to get your car, but that gives you time to enjoy your hot cup of chocolate or browse on the stores.

    Unique Quality: I really liked the fact that they have an special check-in for kids, where I got some stickers, color book and other goodies.

    Directions: Can't miss it !!!
