I wanted to write this review since I myself had a really hard time finding any info/pics of this particular suite when I booked it. When I'm looking for a hotel I really prefer modern decor to anything traditional. In Banff, a room with modern touches is very hard to find as I realize most people appreciate decor which is...

First impression of front lobby was off putting and showing age. Front lobby staff put us at ease with professional service. We had basic king room which was quite small, but appreciated the fridge. What did it for us was location. Quiet area one block to movie theatres ,2 blocks to main street and walk around the back to the... More

We had stayed at this hotel and its sister hotel Banff Park Lodge before, and choose this one again for its proximity to the downtown core and being able to walk to all the restaurants, shopping and pubs. Great Views of the Bow River. The room was A-OK and was comfortable. No complaints there. When we first walk in about... More

The voucher included money off meals and the beds were great. We didnt get maid service the day we stayed over but then we didnt really... More

Comfy beds, great service, can enjoy all the amenities (including pre-purchase of lift tickets) provided next door at the well-run Banff Park lodge. Staff is very courteous and helpful. The view is beautiful and we enjoyed a quiet sleep every night.. Everything is walkable in Banff, one of the best towns in Canada. Sad to leave.

When we booked, Dan was very helpful in setting us up with an excellent ski package. The Rooms were very comfortable and we enjoyed the excellent breakfast and Hot Tub at the Banff Park Lodge. A bid thank you to the teams at the Bow View and Banff Park for making our skiing trip to Banff so enjoyable!!!

The aptly named Bow View Lodge is a perfectly nice hotel for the price, and you absolutely cannot beat the location if you're looking for something right in Banff. I've stayed here twice and have no complaints. The man who works at the front desk is lovely and very helpful. The rooms are adequate (pretty run-of-the-mill). The real selling point... More

Bow View Lodge is located along the River in Banff and a ten minute walk from the heart of Banff. The rooms are clean and while not overly large offer more than adequate accommodation for the price. Some of the rooms on the river side featured king size beds and sofas and were larger. There are no dining facilities here... More

I felt I should write a review because I've stayed in everything from Fairmont's to Hostels and I think a lot of the negative reviews are unwarranted. First of all... the location. Not only is this hotel in the beautiful and world famous resort town of Banff, but it also only a 5 minute walk from downtown Banff Ave. Secondly,... More
