This hotel was beautiful inside and out. Can’t go wrong in Banff, I guess unless you get caught in a storm. We were lucky to have great weather in March, it was a perfect spring break. The hotel is very kid friendly (and dog friendly), more so then any of the US hotels that I’ve stayed. All areas are kid...

Reviewed 10 March 2017

Stayed 2 nights in February 2017. Arriving at "the castle" takes your breath away. Upgrading to a golf course view room was well worth it. The view was straight out of a postcard and on the second morning the snow covered golf fairways were full of deers/elk. It is only a short walk into town however everything you need is...

Dear Graeme M, From the sounds of it, you were really able to take advantage of our winter wonderland! Being situated close to 3 magnificent ski hills really provides the best skiing in Canada, not to mention those views! Something that continues to take our breath away daily!

Perhaps the most iconic hotel in Canada. Well-managed and the staff all seem to 'get-it' in terms of customer service. As you would expect in a 100+ yr old hotel, some of the rooms are smaller than you'd like. Water pressure in the shower on the low side. Note extras like $25 per day for parking ($40 per day for...

This place is amazing. Hotel is beautiful as are the grounds. All restaurant options we used were great although we preferred to walk into town at night and eat (about 1 mile walk). Great proximity to skiing. Would highly recommend.

We checked into the Banff Springs over Easter weekend for 4 nights. During this time we eloped in a private ceremony off the property.

We also enjoyed the pool and...

I traveled with my wife, our two year old son, and our dog to the Banff Springs. We were there to celebrate my wife's birthday but were also looking for some much needed relaxation from work.
