1. Celebrate with a Good Steep
We can’t think of a better place to start our list than with our very own Afternoon Tea. This is a long-serving tradition here at the hotel and one that has roots dating back to 1840 in England. What started as an afternoon snack for a peckish duchess turned into high-fashion events and parties throughout the UK. With its celebratory traditions in hand, Afternoon Tea migrated west to Banff National Park, where it continued at Canada’s Castle in the Rockies.
What makes Afternoon Tea the perfect experience to celebrate life’s moments is that it’s a 133-year old perfected tradition at the hotel. Delicate finger sandwiches, scones and pastries are paired perfectly with the finest loose leaf teas from the world’s most renowned producers. Framed perfectly by the large windows of the hotel overlooking Banff, this experience alone is enough to give you chills but pair it with a group of your best girlfriends; well, it’ll create a memory that will last a lifetime.
