This hotel is very conveniently located to downtown, city transportation and snow shuttles. I was a little concerned having read previous reviews, but was very pleasantly surprised when I arrived. The staff were very friendly and helpful, my room was wonderful and I had the best sleep I have had in years in a hotel. The feather beds are awesome.... More

Stayed here for a week, not avid skiers so were looking for other leisure activities. Matt from front of house was excellent, organised trips for us and nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were very comfortable and spacious, only negative point was there were no dressing gowns!!! Food in restaurant was very good, although no buffet breakfast during the week... More

The room was, spacious, clean and with an excellent bathroom. Both Queen size beds were very comfortable. The lobby, reastaurant and bar were bright and friendly... More

This was the only hotel with the most positive reviews for under $100. The wireless internet and parking was free. The staff was courteous and friendly. The in house restaurant had great food and drinks. The bar was comfortable. The rooms were clean, tidy and comfortable. The only discomfort I felt was the rooms were quite warm in the evenings...

Ski bus stopped outside. Very central location.Whirlpool and... More

The rooms were very spacious and very well kept. The guest service was great and the staff went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Clean, comfortable and reasonable rates. Will definitely book with this hotel again next time I'm in Banff.

From the moment we checked in, Josh had us sorted. He was very imformative of banff and the ski hills, he also organised our ski tickets for the weekend... More

Good sized rooms, very close to all restaurants. We also got a "bus pass" that allowed us to travel to the Gondela and hot springs free of charge. There is a good restaurant within the hotel for breakfast and dinner -- both very good value. The rooms had a kettle, coffee maker and a large wardrobe. We could hear the... More
