Fulfilling the 19th century dream of former Canadian Pacific Railway vice-president, Cornelius Van Horne, Fairmont’s Rocky Mountain resorts combine refined luxury and modern comforts with the pristine surroundings of one of Canada’s most breathtaking landscapes.
With three distinct properties to choose from in Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts embodies the best of both worlds, each offering a unique menu of four-season experiences in the heart of the Canadian Rockies.
The Fairmont Banff Springs
In the heart of Banff National Park, the Fairmont Banff Springs is a true symbol of Canadian hospitality. The resort offers 768 guestrooms featuring breathtaking panoramic views, including 72 Fairmont Gold accommodations that exude the exclusive lifestyle hotel experience embraced by Fairmont’s commitment to service excellence.
For planners, the Fairmont Banff Springs offers more than 76,000 sq. ft. of versatile function and exhibit space, including the refined setting of Mt. Stephen Hall. The property’s two ballrooms can accommodate state-of-the-art presentations for up to 1,500 delegates, or gala dinners in the turn-of-the-century elegance of the Cascade Ballroom. Nine dining options, many of which are conducive to luncheons and group dinners, are also available.
The Fairmont Banff Springs also offers 27 holes of championship golf, as well as the pampered treatments of the Willow Stream Spa. Year-round activities range from hiking, biking and fishing in the summer months, to world-class skiing, snowboarding and dogsledding in the winter.
The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise
Just 45 minutes west of Banff, Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise offers the unparalleled serenity of a true Rocky Mountain wilderness experience.

Guests at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise can immerse themselves in nature’s tranquil surroundings through the property’s Mountain Heritage guided tours, ranging from hikes and canoe trips in the summer, to snowshoeing and cross country skiing in the winter. Back on property, guests can indulge in the pampered treatments of the newly renovated spa or by the fine dining experience of the property’s Four Diamond dining room.
