I've been doing a little bit of research on the history of Banff and area and I stumbled onto this fascinating little cache of info. Here are some numbers from 1973 about the cost and upkeep of the Banff Springs Hotel:
- Cost to rebuild the hotel from scratch: $50 Million dollars.
- Cost to run the hotel per day: $4000
- Cost of a single room: $18-$30
- Cost of a double room: $24-$38
- Cost of a suite: $55-$110
Oh yeah. I think I could live with that. ;-)
