It is difficult to plan a visit to Banff without coming across some reference of the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. The sheer grandeur of the building and its stunning setting have been enticing visitors to Banff for over 100 years.
For skiers and snowboarders it may be difficult to believe that the Banff Springs Hotel used to close its doors for the winter until the 1970s when it finally became a year round resort. If you ever get the chance to spend Christmas or New Year in Banff, you will see that the Banff Springs now captures the holiday spirit better than most people can imagine.
For many lucky visitors to Banff, the Fairmont Banff Springs will provide a temporary home, but if you are staying at another hotel in town, you should certainly make the effort to visit the Castle in the Rockies.
