The concierge was invaluable! (I don't remember her name but she was wonderful). Loved the heated pool, walking Bear, horseback riding, the hotel tour, and the hiking tour. I got a kick out of seeing elk right on the property! 1888 Chop House, the Rundle Bar, the Vermillion Room, and Stock were OUTSTANDING!!! The only thing keeping me from giving a "10" is that my room was smaller than expected (but had an outstanding view) and I couldn't get the room cool enough, even with the A/C. I did like that I could open the window but oddly enough, that didn't cool the room off either. I HAVE BEEN SINGING YOUR HOTELS PRAISES EVER SINCE I CAME HOME. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Everything we expected

Having spent 50 years frequenting the Greenbrier, we hoped a similar venue in a different part of North America would provide a similar experience. It did and our expectations were fulfilled. The only blip was our room was booked by Rocky Mountaineer and was too tiny. Front desk staff solved this by finding a room that cost more, but met our expectations.

Thank you very much for taking the time out of your day to complete our online survey regarding your recent stay at the Fairmont Banff Springs. We are pleased to see that your stay at our resort met your expectations. I would however like to sincerely apologize that your first room was too small. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention during your stay so that we could find you a room that enjoyed. I would also like to thank you for your kind words for Delaney and our Concierge team. I had the great pleasure of sharing your compliments with them. Thank you again for sharing your experience. We hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back for a future stay. Sincerely, Lori Osinga Executive Assistant Fairmont Banff Springs

The experience was alright, but definitely fell short of what I had expected given the price and premium reputation. I booked well in advance, though still ended up with a room with two double beds (I believe I was also charged some small surcharge for a second person as well, despite staying alone). My room was dirty when I arrived (grease on the wall, thick dust on the armoire, some speckles of what looked like blood or a device connected to the wall, grime on the shower wall), but this was sorted out after a few days when I had the opportunity to provide feedback. I also took photos to make sure I couldn't be accused of some of this. Housekeeping responded quickly, and offered me a bottle of wine for my trouble. This was a nice gesture, though they brought white instead of red (after asking which I preferred) and I also was leaving shortly and didn't get a chance to drink it anyway. The location of the room was next to the housekeeping's closet it seemed, so it was loud and there was a ton of traffic outside of my room very early. Some of the staff were very helpful (one of the concierge with an Australian accent and the person who checked me in initially come to mind), but many were rude and dismissive. I received a $100 meal credit that was generously provided when I provided my feedback, an older concierge said "way to go" to me, then said he didn't want to hear what happened and proceeded to provide me with the wrong instructions on how to use it (told me to bill everything back to my room). The credit wasn't applied, and I spoke to someone at the front desk who was quite curt and told me I was incorrectly informed. This was adjusted, but it did feel like pulling teeth. So in summary — I checked into a noisy and dirty room, with two small beds instead of one larger bed, was charged an additional fee for a second person despite staying there alone. Some people tried to make up for the inconvenience, other people were rude and dismissive and created additional confusion and in the end made things a bit worse overall.

Amazing trip

We spent our last two nights in Banff at the Fairmont Banff Springs and had a wonderful time-wish we could’ve stayed longer. The room was great, customer service was wonderful, couldn’t have asked for a better time.
