Fancy hotel, dinner and a show

Yesterday, we had about a two-hour tour of Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel by a lad in plaid.  We saw and learned a lot.

Starting in 1911, a wholly new structure was built in stages to replace the 1888 hotel. The original Shingle style-influenced wooden structure was replaced with a new building of concrete and faced with stone, and now insulated for year-round use.  It is beautiful, but a tad pricey to stay here:P1230021

P1220964

P1220989

P1220993

The gang thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and entertainment of “Oh Canada Eh.”

P1230081

P1230046

Today is our last day in Banff, so we are soaking up some more of this beautiful scenery…at a higher elevation.

Having a fine time.  WYWH, y’all!

A tad pricy? 589.00 to 689.00 per night. That's more than a tad. I just had to look. It's a beautiful place though.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to the babies. ♥♥♥

More than a tad indeed! Once again, thanks for taking us along for the ride! I hope you'll be able to go to Maligne Canyon & Lake.
