Ski Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel

The Fairmont Banff Springs is an icon of Canadian history. Built in 1888 with the laying of the Canadian Pacific Railway, it was one of a string of opulent hotels designed to tempt holidaymakers out to the Rocky Mountains. And it worked. The hotels became the destinations for wealthy Europeans looking to see Canada’s staggering mountain scenery and to climb its rocky peaks. They attracted the cream of society, with the likes of King George VI, Winston Churchill and Marilyn Monroe among the hotel's star-studded showreel of past guests.

You can’t help but be bowled over by the Fairmont Banff Springs or the Castle in the Rockies, as it’s known. It was modelled on a Scottish baronial castle and its austere walls contain a mind-boggling mix of restaurants, bars, lounges and grand ballrooms. Each is dotted with little nods to its historical theme, from whole suits of armour to grand thrones carved from wood. There’s a world-class spa (naturally), indoor and outdoor hot tubs and pools, marble-floored lounges and even a bowling alley. This is North American luxury at its finest, so the bedrooms are big and beautifully styled, with all the mod cons you'd expect - not to mention their heavenly beds.

The famous Fairmont breakfasts will keep you on the mountain until dinner, but you’re also just a short walk from Banff, which is full of lively restaurants, bars and shops. And when you’re ready to hit the slopes, the hotel shuttle is right outside, to whisk you up to Banff's famous Big 3 mountains: Norquay, Sunshine Village and Lake Louise.
