Banff Festival of Wine & Food
The Hotel itself is also a major tourist draw, and offers tours for both guests and non-guests. Fashioned after a Scottish baronial castle, Banff Springs Hotel is often referred to as 'the Castle In The Rockies.'
The hotel wows visitors with its mammoth scale, heavy stone walls, intricate labyrinth of halls and rooms, and gargantuan fireplaces large enough to walk in.
At Christmas, the staff fills the common areas with tons of lights and decorations -- and what seems like -- hundreds of Christmas trees of all sizes.
