Not simply highest on the lists of those who'd care to visit the Rocky Mountains, the mountain town of Banff in Canada's Rockies is also the Canadian town at the highest elevation.
Yet another reason to visit among the most iconic hotels in all of in Canada!
Formerly known as the Banff Springs Hotel, this brilliant, castle-looking structure has been gracing the covers of Canadian travel magazines and filling mail bags from the front of postcards since 1888 when the original iteration was built by the Canadian Pacific Railway.
Following a number of updates, upgrades, and continued construction - with a brief pause for fire and World War I - the palatial building encompasses 764 rooms and 12 restaurants. Alongside 27 holes of elk-as-a-hazard golfing excellence.
It also smells incredible
There are a number of grandiose ballrooms, meeting rooms, and generally beautiful places to snag a great holiday photo or three with family and friends.
But as mentioned in the video (above), it is perhaps an unsung hero of homegrown destination wedding venues.
Wines from neighbouring BC, fashionable game meats at the luxurious dining facilities, alongside 365 days of mountain views might seem an appealing alternate for those who'd care for a bit of opulence but aren't into sand and sea for their big day.
Did we mention a special rate on golf for the wedding party?
It also features as an incredible option for several itineraries on the legendary Rocky Mountaineer, Canada's own luxury train experience and arguably the best way to view the Rockies!
