  405 Spray Avenue - T1L1J4 - Banff, Canada View Map

Built in 1888 by Canadian Pacific Railway Company, The Fairmont Banff Springs is one of the first Grand Railway Hotels in Canada, a real icon in the history of Canadian architecture. By booking a room in the majestic The Fairmont Banff Springs, you could experience some “interesting” things, as it seems to be one of the most haunted hotels in Canada. One of the most famous ghosts you could meet is "the bride". The story dates back to the ‘20s, as a young bride died of a broken neck by stepping on her gown while descending the stairs. Ever since that, a figure in a veil and a wedding gown was seen coming down the stairs, right where the bride lost her life, as well as being spotted dancing in the ballroom as if it was her wedding day. Another ghost you may run into is Sam Macauley’s, the hotel’s errand boy. Although he died in 1975, he seems to appear in his ‘60s uniform every time people need help...
