A grand Rocky Mountain resort
Located about an hour and a half from Calgary, Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel stands in stark and beautiful contrast to other modern and urban getaways. Built in the style of a Scottish castle, the hotel’s stone façade and pointed turrets provide a stately outline against the truly stunning natural beauty of the surrounding area — the Canadian Rockies and Spray and Bow Valleys.
Given the location’s emphasis on nature, it’s no wonder that the hotel boasts outdoor activities for every season. From cross-country skiing, dogsledding, ice fishing and more in the winter to canoeing, tennis, golf (on the championship course designed by Stanley Thompson) and more during the warmer spring and summer months, the stunning surrounding landscape is taken full advantage of.
The hotel also boasts more than 10 dining options including the signature fine-dining establishment of the Banffshire Club and the more relaxed atmosphere of The Bow Valley Grill where you can enjoy made-to-order omelets while watching the sunrise over the Fairholme Mountain Range. There’s also the full-service Willow Stream Spa where guests can sink into serenity after a strenuous hike or other activity by getting a Sports Massage, rejuvenate their skin with the floral-focused Rose Renewal treatment or simply unwind with a soak in the beautiful mineral pool located in the center of the spa.
