The Fairmont Banff Springs hotel is a former railway hotel constructed in Scottish Baronial style, located in Banff National park, Alberta, Canada. The hotel, designed by architect Bruce Price, was built between spring of 1887 and 1888 by the Canadian Pacific Railway, at the instigation of its President, William Cornelius Van Horne. The hotel was publicly opened on June 1, 1888 and rebuilt in the 1920s after a fire.
Main Staircase: A bride was coming down the main staircase on her wedding day. The staircase was filled with beautiful candles to celebrate the special event. The train on her dress caught on one of the candles and the dress caught fire. In her panic, she tumbled down the stair breaking her neck. Today, she still be seen wandering through the halls of the Banff Springs in her wedding dress. The stairs, although still there have since been blocked and there were no other weddings in that area of the hotel.
The Missing Room #873: The walls have been extended over the door; however you can clearly see where the door use to be. Employees of the Hotel claim that they are not allowed to speak of it. The rumor is that a family was killed in the room and guests regularly see the ghosts. Mean while no matter how much they cleaned the mirrors a little girl’s fingerprints return, so they blocked off the room.
