The resort comes with a handful of complimentary experiences. A concierge will reach out after you reserve your room to see if you would like to book any activities.

The Room: Junior Suite (Turret)

We used the free night and upgrade certificates from the Fairmont credit card to reserve the Junior Suite (Turret). 

The turret suite has a winding staircase and breathtaking views of the Canadian Rockies.

If you want to play with a furry friend while on vacation, you can reserve time with the Fairmont Concierge to walk the hotel dog, Bear.
