I worked at the Banff Springs in various capacities, chamber  maid,
Alberta dining room, and The Works. I arrived in 1983 and left for
expo'86, and came back till '87.
I had several interesting experiences at the Hotel.  I'm looking 
forward to your web page.  Let me know if I can help.

Simon Harris, Summer 1983. Housekeeping.

I spent the summer of 83 working in Housekeeping at The Banff Springs on a Student Exchange programme from England. My first impressions when I walked into the upper annex after flying in from the UK was " what have I let myself in for here!" I few days later and having got over the jet lag I settled in and spent  the summer working as a Houseman and made some really good friends, many of whom I am still in touch with today. The highlight of the summer was the North American Oilman's Convention which was held at the hotel. I was one of three English people at the Springs that summer and I know we all had a great time. 
I have been back to the Springs a  few times since, the last being when I was in Calgary on business earlier this year which bought the memories flooding back 
If anyone remembers me, Simon ( the tall guy from England who damaged his knee!!!), Susan or Elizabeth ( the two chambermaids from Liverpool) drop me a line at
