Editorial review:

This palatial hotel located in the Rockies is splendid and reminiscent of a Harry Potter castle. There are golf courses, excellent buffets, and a great spa. Those who loved this hotel said that the service is amazing. You can see elk, moose, and even ghosts around. However, the rooms are small.

                            Looked nice, was special, bed was amasing. But you need to read below and make up your own mind.

                            Paid lots for the pleasure to stay, no free wifi, and parking was on the next planet and we had to walk in the rain to and from our car. Parking a nightmare as well, and then cost the world. Stayed for a special occasion but let me tell would not do it again, not in this life time. Fairmont may be the name in the hotel industery but it is only a Name, I would look around them to find better value for my holiday money. They need to come out of the dark ages with there charges.

                            The location is good, set a little out of the centre, so surrounded by mountains

                            Such a disappointing experience. Massively overpriced even taking the hotel's history and location into account. The room was small, overfull of dated furniture, grubby (badly in need of redecorating), dirty (marks on bathroom units). We were charged extra for parking, wifi and breakfast - regrettable nickel-and-diming given the huge cost of our stay. There wasn't even any water in the room - it was really substandard and worth perhaps a quarter of what we paid. I often read reviews like this and think people just have unreasonable expectations or are born complainers - but I'm not, I was just so upset and disappointed by the Fairmont experience. What a sad end to an iconic hotel. Save your money and stay at the Buffalo Mountain lodge (crmr.com) where you'll get a better class of service at a much more reasonable price. You can still have a meal or tour of the Banff Springs and hopefully can enjoy the iconic buildings without the frustration of knowing Fairmont have royally ripped you off :(

                            It is it's own world, so much to do outside of room. It is a piece of our national history. The architecture and outdoor surroundings are breathtaking.

                            There is a charge for wifi. Unbelievable. The building is old, so some things just are ot as nice as we are now accustomed to (small bathrooms with no vanity space, outdated tub)

                            I did love the Banff Springs Hotel. If you going for the experience of it all.. Totally worth it. If you a adverage couple like my husband and my self it 's not.@$345.00 a room I knew it was one of their cheapest rooms but I found my room to dirty , not to bad but I expect better.

                            Beautiful facility set into the mountains.Complimented with great staff.

                            The small fridges were not set at an appropiate temperature causing the loss of medication....Yes ther is a card inside the fridge but it was on easily seen...too late. For such a great facility the food did not meet expectation...we tried three different restaurants.....poor presentation and lack of colour.

                            Not a complain as such but room was nothing special to warrent the price tag. Had small problem with draughts at night coming in from the room door.

                            It is a beautiful hotel. Lots of history. Loved the view and the hot swimming pool outside.

                            I will be sending a complaint to the hotel. A few things - what view???? Our window was the size of a poster with the view on the left of the hotel wing - (by the way, the hotel windows on the outside need painting and cocking) and a small view of the mountains. I would not say this was any view and I did pay extra for it. You should stay in this room to check. Thanks

                            The location in the mountains is great .

                            The staff from the front doors to the lounge were not helpful at all . I was very disappointed in the service . I was very disappointed with the value of our stay . When else do I have to pay $ 25.00 to park and still have to park in a soccer field because my truck is to big to park in the parkade .

                            The hotel in general the service and the great food. Dogs allowed. Gold Floor service. Wide range of restaurant choices. Very friendly. Awesome location

                            Room was a little small especially as it was on the Gold Floor and we had dogs with us. No tub in the VERY small bathroom.
