About Willow Stream Spa at The Fairmont Banff Springs

Rising out of the Canadian Rockies at the intersection of three glacial valleys, The Fairmont Banff Springs overlooks the rushing Bow and Spray Rivers. The hotel's inception dates back to the early days of the Canadian Pacific Railway toward the end of the 19th century. Scottish baronial architecture and classical European-influenced decor provide an elegant aesthetic steeped in history. The property's recent history is distinguished by the addition of Willow Stream Spa, a deluxe sanctuary with an emphasis on healing mineral hydrotherapy reminiscent of the hot springs that initially attracted people to this picturesque area of western Canada.

At present, the small mountain town of Banff draws visitors from all over the world for its outdoor activities and wildlife. Surrounded by Banff National Park's abundance of natural scenery and magnificent panoramic views, The Fairmont Banff Springs allows adventurers easy access to some of North America's most celebrated ski slopes. In warmer months, guests take advantage of a 27-hole championship golf course as well as hiking trails for all skill levels.

Couples Massage
Booked a couples massage here and it was so relaxing. They accommodated all our requests and made us feel like VIP's. The treatment rooms were quite spacious considering the age of the hotel as well.

So relaxing!
Though I did not stay at this hotel, I did spend a day at the spa here and it was amazing! It was definitely the best part of my entire time in Banff. The facilities were beautiful and tranquil. I signed up for a hot stone massage and though I'm usually used to a deeper type of massage, I found the service to be quite relaxing and enjoyable. The sitting area that could be used before or after services was very peaceful and lovely. All in all, a great experience that I would recommend to anyone! (the only reason for the 0 score on the fitness facilities was because I did not use these services, so I could not accuarately rate them)

Delightful and Delicious
Gorgeous views, gorgeous facilities, delicious spa meals. A treat for all of the senses.

Heaven on Earth
This is by far the best spa I have ever been to and I can't wait to plan a trip to return.
December 7, 2006
Great setting
What surprised me about this hotel and spa is how large the spa was and how significant it was to my stay. I knew that the hotel was historic and had been around for a long time which meant that the spa would be an addition. But I was happily surprised that it wasn't just a small spa with a few spa treatments but a grand spa with an extensive menu and well-trained staff that made the trip from California worthwhile for the spa alone.
