Stayed for 4 nights at the start of our tour of BC. Hotel was close to all amenities and comfortable, good parking although our SUV would not fit in the underground car park. Jacuzzi was good. Paid a fair price for our stay and was not dissappointed

Stopped here on a recent trip to Banff. The location was perfect. Parking was included in an underground garage. It was a little tight in there but was very useful. Was a little noisy outside on our 1st night but the staff were very helpful and I would stop there again

We spent two nights here in August 2014. Friendly and helpful staff,, 5 minutes walk to town. Breakfast at the restaurant attached was very good. Rooms clean. No hesitation in booking this hotel again.

This was the perfect place after touring around all day! The check-in was effortless, staff very friendly and helpful! The room was very comfortable and very clean. The bed and pillows were great!! The hotel was very quiet which was nice for a good nights sleep. Had a nice balcony with the view of the mountains. Could not think of... More

Stayed here for 3 weeks for a skiing trip. The rooms were great, with air-con/heating, a fridge and comfortable beds. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially with directions etc. The hotel had lockers to keep ski equipment in which was useful. It would have been better if there were safety deposit boxes in each of the rooms, however... More

Parking was at a premium. We first parked in the back but left to sightsee and when we returned there were no spaces open. We couldn't park in the underground garage because the SUV was too tall for the door opening. They had us park along the driveway. Difficult to get out in the morning. The lobby was not air... More

Just came back august 6th 2014. Location was good, staff friendly. Definitely needs microwaves in rooms. Parking had very tight spots. Nothing fancy but nice place for the money. Walking distance to everything, but far enough away from all the foot traffic to make for a quiet hotel.

We got a 'family size room with jetted tub', which was nice, but, not as nice as the pictures showed. The room was need of updating, especially the bathroom with its stained linoleum and peeling wallpaper. The bathroom was small, and the tub was smallish with jacuzzi jets. The room was big, with 2 areas for hanging up clothes and,had... More

Banff is a very beautiful, but extremely expensive town. We chose Irwin's because it was centrally located, had one of the most reasonable rates in the area (albeit at a still-pricey $188/night with taxes) with some of the amenities we look for: free wifi, free parking, and a fridge. However, I personally think that if you're going to offer a... More
