L'Hôtel Banff Springs

This hotel is among the largest and most renowned of the fashionable resort hotels established along railway and steamship routes in Canada during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company in stages between 1911 and 1928, the hotel developed an international reputation for excellence as a vacation retreat and became a symbol of the significance of tourism in the Canadian Rockies. Its striking natural setting, Chateau-style design and lavish interior décor appealed to a wealthy clientele seeking a wilderness experience in opulent surroundings.
