There is a wonderful concert hall and a jazz hall in the basement. I also strongly recommend the Vista dining room with a wonderful view.

An event held there for more than 330 guests to help raise funds for gifted art students to attend the Banff Fine Arts Programs. What a terrific venue and well organized!

Summer arts festival is unparalleled. Saturday night formal ball is the highlight and is incredibly well done. Artists are amazing and it's a privilege to be part of their testing grounds.

No parking virtually anywhere- be prepped and note that the walk up through the town could have you encounter the huge ELK in the woods. DO NOT TRY TO PET THEM (as I saw one Korean gentleman attempt) The Banff Centre is a nice spot to see some of the area's wild life. Some nice events go on and it's... More

Everything in Banff seems a little expensive for me. Went there for a conference, the food there is good and the view is just amazing. But considering the price, it may not be a good place for family visit.

We stayed here for a conference and were delighted with the quality of the food, accommodations and service from the staff. The center is only a 15 minute walk from downtown Banff, so it was super easy to sneak away for a little bit of shopping between symposiums. Although a little costly, it was well worth it!

Given that it is in a National park, one can understand why the price of everything in Banff is so high. The Banff Centre (food and lodging) is certainly no exception, but it was a great place for a conference, with gorgeous views, proximity to a decent number of restaurants and hiking trails, and good service. I had no complaints... More

I attended a concert at the Shaw Ampitheatre at the Banff Centre. What an amazing experience enjoying live music with a mountain backdrop. The acoutsics were fabulous and the ammenities of the Centre were very good. The one drawback that kept the rating lower than I would have liked ot give was my experience at Maclab Bistro. The service was... More
