BANFF, AB, November 9, 2021 – Fairmont Banff Springs has announced it is embarking on a $35 million CAD renovation of its suites and guestrooms. The extensive renovation of the Royal Suite, Fairmont Gold rooms, select one and two bedroom suites, and terrace suites will begin in January 2022 and are anticipated to be completed in summer 2022. The refurbishment of all main building and conference centre guestrooms began in spring 2021 and are anticipated to be completed in spring 2023.
The sophisticated newly renovated suites and guestrooms will provide guests with a complete room makeover, featuring a contemporary look and stylish enhancements with classic design elements, creating a tranquil space for both business and leisure travellers.
The famed Royal Suite, located at the peak of the castle’s turret and boasting panoramic views of Banff National Park, will be transformed with the addition of a second bedroom and an upgraded master bedroom, plus a reimagined dining room, two impressive bathrooms, and a cozy living room equipped with an intimate fireplace and in-room dry bar. The 1,895 square foot space is one of Banff’s largest and most exclusive suites.
