this hotel is well located on the main strip in Banff, you are a couple of minutes walk to the main shop and restaurant area but nothing more. We booked through booking.com which is advised as there were only a limited number of rooms available when we checked in. However seemed to lose on exchange rate as pay on arrival.... More

We stayed midweek in April so we got a great price through Priceline. Since breakfast was included this place was a real bargain. The regular breakfast buffet was closed due to the small number of rooms occupied so it was cooked to order as much as you wanted. Go in the off season for Banff practically to your self and...

We are glad that we gave the Ptarmigan another chance. We had stayed there a few years ago and at that time, we felt the hotel was looking a little tired. However, during this stay, the hotel felt refreshed, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet that included made-to-order omelettes. We also found the staff to be very friendly.

The location is great and the furnishings were basic but nice. The hotel was very clean too. The "spa room" is kind of weird where one hot tub is way too hot and the other is too cool. The worst part about it is that there was some bizarre humming sound that happened all day and night. It sounded like... More

Such a cute hotel, it seems small on the outside but it was so much inside. Excellent restaurant downstairs call the meatball, and the continental breakfast in the morning is delicious! The hot tube was very nice, two of them on really hot and one warm. also includes a sauna and steam room. Has underground parking. also has ski equipment... More

I booked this hotel through expedia.ca it was booked online the day of my travels, and it was during off peek travel times. the front entrance staff was courteous and welcomed me, I was given a coupon book for activities around the city, unfortunately the coupons were all expired. Parking is underground, all the halls in the hotel smell like... More

Wow, is this place ever in need of a renovation! There were 4 of us staying here for the Easter weekend for a trip to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday. As we had changed our plans fairly last minute, there weren't a lot of options when it came to hotel rooms in Banff, and so we went with the Ptarmigan.... More

Check in was greeted by two friendly staff, very informative about Banff, rooms where clean, The free hot continental breakfast was exceptional, two types of eggs. bacon, sausage, hash-browns, pancakes and lots of fruit. Only a couple of blocks from downtown. My only negative, if I have to have one is the tight parking spots around the hotel.

Clean and friendly, this property offers everything we needed for a simple one night stay. Excellent location. Added value of a FULL hot and cold breakfast in the morning. Rooms were a good size. Hot tub offered 2 of different temperatures.
