When my wife and I arrived here we were welcomed with an upgrade, which was all very nice until we got to our room. It was bland white, walls were white, bedding was white, furniture was white, the blinds were white, this room had recently undergone a refurbishment, there was nowhere to sit apart from two plastic garden type chairs...

The hotel had just finished a renovation in a new wing and the rooms were well appointed and comfortable. This stay was a stopover on a tour on the Rocky Mountaineer train across the Canadian Rockies, so the company arranged the housing. We were happy with its location in town and its proximity to great restaurants and the downtown area.... More

We booked a two queen size room for two nights for late August. The hotel is a bit dated and our room did not have ac and the window was to an alley. This could be a problem for people who can easily get hot. The temperature outside was cold enough for me so everything was good. They provide fans... More

We really enjoyed our stay in Banff, and the location of this hotel made it very easy to get around. The hotel restaurant was not really for us (aimed at families with simple meals), so it was easy to walk to lots of nearby great restarants for breakfast & dinner. We had a larger room, with plenty of space. The... More

Spent 6 nights here with family. 2 rooms. More expensive room had good view but tiny. Cheaper room more spacious and good enough view. Grounds are nice. Good fitness center. But might be better to stay somewhere cheaper and just visit. Tons of tour buses but that seems true of all the good area hotels

We had a two night stay here and I was disappointed. Our loft suite was a nice size but the top floor was very hot (it was in the 80's when we visited). The carpet had stains and the top of the wardrobe on the first floor was layered with dust (they should realize you can see that from the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of June. We had booked online with no problem. Hotel is easy to find being right on main street across from the Safeway. It is the last Hotel just before the downtown shops. It has secure underground parking accessible from Martin Street behind the hotel. Parkade is bit claustrophobic with low... More

The hotel is very nice. Comfortable lounge in lobby, good staff, very clean rooms. Great location -- not only near restaurants and shopping, but also the departure points for tours and about a block from the visitor's center. On-site restaurant did not appeal to us - photos of food looked heavy and cholesterol-laden. Not a problem, since there were many... More

We had to book at the last moment and the last room was available, of course your minds tells you not to get excited abut the hotel and the room. However, great surprise, first wonderful staff, friendly, knowledgeable, welcoming. Then the room, a queen size bed, clean, fresh, well appointed. Everything was top-notch, internet, coffee, TV. Finally, close to everything,... More
