We arrived to this hotel on, what we were told by the locals as, the hottest day of the year - 86 degrees in August, 2012. We arrived early in the day and our room wasn't ready, but the desk clerk offered to store our luggage. They also have free parking in a parking garage, but it was limited to... More

We went at the Banff International Hotel for 2 nights in mid-August. The things I found annoying we're that, even if nights were pretty cold, rooms we're still hot at night (no a/c; small fan; small window), so I would totally not recommand that hotel in the hottest season. Wi-Fi was supposely included, but wasn't working most of the time.... More

I stayed at the hotel the last weekend of July. Our room was located on the second floor on the back of the hotel. A little bit noisy at night, mostly because of the trains running at all hours of the night. They blow their whistle as they come in to Banff and that woke us up every night (our... More

Stayed here on an impromtu visit to Banff in early May 2012. Very helpful young lady from Oz got us checked in and was a constant source of help and good advice for our stay. Rooms are big , comfortable as you would expect as were the beds. Just a short and pleasant walk along the street to the main... More

Our family spent three nights in August in this hotel and enjoyed our stay. This hotel is in an excellent location, so combined with a clean room with most amenities, this was exactly what we needed. There is no AC, but this appears to be the norm for Banff. Also, there is no pool, just a spa/ hot tub, but... More

Hotel's highest quality is its location. The rooms are hot and there is no air conditioning web windows are opened the air conditioned machines make to much noise. The internet access, although free is so slow it is impossible to use (it would be mire reasonable to charge and offer a decent access).

Good location close to shops and restaurants. Pleasant and helpful staff. Clean, spacious room with comfortable bed. Value for money - I was pleasantly surprised that it was such a good find. I would stay here again.

I stayed here for four nights in July 2012. I was very surprised at just how good this hotel was - as given the price in comparison to other hotels in the town, I expected to be disappointed. But no way. The room was a great size - two queen size beds, nice sized bathroom - with a bath. Even... More

Bad location across from Safeway store on very busy street corner with noise of shoppers, kids and tour buses all day and night. Beautiful and artistic design features overlying totally dysfunctional engineering aspects-e.g. need two elevators to go from underground garage (with 6-foot, 1-inch vehicle clearance) to 5th-floor--which is really third floor with different number. Large room with tasteful furnishings... More
