One of the most renowned hotels in all of Canada, the Fairmont Banff Springs sits right in the heart of Banff National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Known as “The Castle in the Rockies”, this stately luxury resort was originally built as one of Canada’s grand railroad hotels, and has been hosting guests since 1888. Today, it’s a popular choice for a high-end incentive program, and our top recommendation for any stay in Banff.
The hotel is located within a spectacular setting nestled in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, a year-round playground for outdoor enthusiasts. It sits just above picturesque Bow Falls, and is quite close to thermal hot springs. The hotel looks out across the valley and toward the geological monolith of Mount Rundle (9,672′ ft or 2,948 m). It is south of, but within walking distance to, the resort community of Banff.
The Fairmont Banff Springs boasts 770 rooms and suites, so it can accommodate a wide range of incentive groups. Rooms are elegantly appointed and offer inspiring views of the surrounding valley and mountains. Summer visitors can take advantage of the spectacular 27 hole world championship golf course at the resort, while winter visitors find it a perfect base camp for world-class skiing and other alpine adventures. And all guests can enjoy the on-site Willow Stream Spa, regardless of the season. There is plentiful meeting and banquet space for staging a truly memorable event. Fairmont hotels around the world are known for having innovative and delicious cuisine, and the Banff Springs is no exception. There are four restaurants and five lounges/pubs on-site to serve a full range of palates.
In its 120-plus years of operation, The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel has played host to a fair share of dignitaries and celebrities, including Marilyn Monroe, Helen Keller, Benny Goodman, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. A stay at this mountain castle is sure to make anyone feel like a star!“We are proud members of the Association of Destination Management Executives International”
