Being a Fairmont's President Club's Platinum member has wonderful perks; one of them is free stays at their hotels. We took advantage of it during the Daylight Saving weekend and it was absolutely one of our best weekend getaways ever. Everything was perfect, really. From the suite upgrade, to the delicious dinner at their Italian restaurant, to the best deep tissue massage I had ever had. It was hands down the most relaxing weekend we've ever had in a very long time.
The view from our suite: (a room with a view, indeed!)
Cute interior of the shop. Antique trunk.
Do you see the little trains on the ceiling of the Fairmont Banff Springs' shop? :)
The magnificent Mount Stephen hall. Would you want to make your wedding feel like a scene out of the Tudor's? :)
There is something about the hot chocolates at the Fairmont hotels... Be it at the Fairmont Montebello, Fairmont Queen Elizabeth, or Fairmont Banff Springs, I can never resist it.
This is one of my most favourite rooms. I can just picture scenes from Downton Abbey or period drama-styled photoshoots in this gorgeous room. The first time I saw it, I fell in love at once.
What a beautiful ballroom! Reminds me of the renaissance palaces in France.
And step outside of the ballroom, and you find this oh-so-lovely outdoor space, perfect for any function. Outstandingly beautiful.
And Ange's favourite corner, of course: :)
At the Waldhaus restaurant, where they serve some of the best pretzels we've ever had!
... and finally Ange got a hold of my camera and I could get some photos of myself taken when travelling :)
And of course the hot chocolate, with extra whipped cream, bitte! :)
And following photos were taken with Iphone. Waking up at 9 am on a Sunday morning to rush to the Willow Stream Spa for an outdoor hot pool with the most breathtaking view was definitely worth it.
