The Fairmont Banff Springs

Perched in the majestic Canadian Rockies in Banff National Park (a woodlands area that UNESCO has designated as a World Heritage Site), the Fairmont Banff Springs is in the midst of the rustic beauty of the pristine Alberta wilderness, yet still features the modern amenities and luxury treatment that discerning travelers have come to expect from Fairmont over the years.

The Fairmont Banff Springs is home to the highly lauded Willow Stream Spa.  The Willow Stream Spa has deservedly collected a plethora of awards over the years, including being named the Top Hotel Spa in the U.S. and Canada by Travel and Leisure Magazine, the Best Alpine Hotel Spa in the World from the UK Public Snow Awards, and most recently a 2008 Reader's Choice Award from Spa Finder Magazine.  Once you step inside and immerse yourself in this incredible spa experience, you'll understand why this spa continues to haul in awards year after year.  Highlights include eucalyptus inhalation rooms, several waterfall treatment whirlpools, and an indoor European therapeutic mineral pool.  Reminiscent of the hot springs that beckoned travelers to this region over a century ago, the pulsating waterfalls and the mineral pool in the heart of the spa rejuvenate tired muscles and soothe troubled spirits.  The intensity of the oxygen at this high Rocky Mountain altitude inspires a clarity of thought and renews sense of purpose.

The Willow Stream Spa is indeed a tough act to follow, but the accomodations at the Fairmont Banff Springs give it a run for its money.  This hotel is styled after a Scottish baronial castle, and the Presidential Suite, with its stunning panoramic views of the Bow Valley, Spray Valley, the golf course, and Bow Falls will truly let you feel like you are a noble surveying your vast territory.  A wood burning fireplace adds another touch of Rocky Mountain authenticity, while the split level living area features both a grand piano and a library.  The bathroom is opulently finished with marble and features its own whirlpool.  The Fairmont Banff springs features the steakhouse and traditional Canadian dining that you would expect at a Rocky Mountain resort, but it also offers cosmopolitan options like a wine bar and a sushi bar.

Although it would be tempting to stay by the fire and finish your favorite novel, guests would be remiss to not take advantage of the outdoor activities that Banff Springs has to offer.  Golfers will be delighted by the Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course, which is a captivating and challengine course set in the heart of the lush pines of Banff's parkland.  From the actual design of each hole to the optical illusions created by the surrounding mountains, this course will delight and tempt you.  Skiiers will also be pleased by the 3 world class mountain areas found in the area.  Sunshine Village offers the opportunity to ski down the renowned Continental Divide, while Nakiska was the venue for the memorable 1988 Winter Olympics.  Lake Louise Area is one of Canada's largest ski areas and frequently hosts World Cup Skiing, while Mount Norquay gives you the rare chance to ski down the Rockies at night.

Whether you're coming to soothe yourself in the spa or thrill yourself on the slopes, the combination of authentic rustic beauty and modern luxury promise that your stay at the Fairmont Banff Springs will be an unforgettable one.
