This hotel is fabulous!! It looks like a Castle and is huge. The rooms are very nice and the setting is absolutely gorgeous!!! The hotel staff is very nice and just walking around is a real treat. Just the perfect place to stay and they have a shuttle that runs into town for $5.00 each way. There is a Starbucks... More

That was a pleasant stay - just for 2 nights to see Banff and the highlights around. The rooms were clean and decent, no breakfast offered though. And as others already stated, Wifi is very bad and kind of non-existent in the rooms, that should be improved. But overall it was an upscale hotel experience.

when a neighboring hotel screwed up my reservation on an extremely busy and full capacity weekend in Banff, I had to scramble to find a room as it was too late to drive all the way back home. I managed to grab the last room available as I was not in a position to be choosy. I had stayed at... More

I stayed in this hotel after the Calgary Stampede. This was a great place to stay for a short stay but the location earns top marks. You are in the heart of downtown Banff and close to shopping and restaurants. I did like the decor as the lobby had a outdoor/mountain look view and very Banff-like atmosphere. A few negatives...

This hotel is located in the midst of Banff. Everything in the city is within walking distance. Personnel was very helpful and friendly. But one should be aware the website does not accurately depict rooms. We booked a superior room with the promise of a king size bed. There is not such room although it was clearly stated on the...

This was a very economic hotel ( we choose the cheapest room as we were not planning to stay in our room except to sleep) Therefore our room was clean but not the greatest. Staff friendly at front desk and in the restaurant. Ate breakfast at restaurant before each hike. Spent four nights. Located right on Banff avenue so within... More

If we had seen this hotel before we booked it, we would never have stayed there----we hope you don't either. Website pics do it too much justice. The property is not just tired, it's exhausted! WIFI connection in the room is bad, the pillows are lumpy, the carpet was stained---horribly, the fixtures were cheap, and the furniture was circa 1970.... More

This was a great place to stay. Room excellent and decor well maintain and with a "lodge" feel. Very comfortable room. Breakfast great. Very very close to town centre and a safeway just acroos the street. Great value for money. Front desk reception staff all very good and helpful ad efficient.
