Luxuriating at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel – Canadian Rockies Trip Journal Day #13
Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel – As you drive through the town of Banff, in the Alberta Canadian Rockies, there will come a moment when you round a corner and are presented with this jaw-dropping view of the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel.
This amazing structure first opened in 1888, and at the time was the largest hotel in North America outside of New York City.
We have much to share with you about our stay in this hotel, but first and foremost, these baby boomer travelers were weary from two-weeks of travel, the skies were cloudy and rainy, so we did what any self-respecting baby boomer traveler would do — we spent nearly the whole day in the Fairmont Banff Springs Willow Stream Spa.
This particular Willow Stream Spa is rate by Conde Nasté Traveler as the third best spa in all of Canada, and features three waterfall treatment whirlpools as well as a European mineral pool. We spent the whole day “taking waters”, as they say, and chillin’ with a good book.
We’ll share more about this fabulous destination in another post. Stay tuned!
