My husband and I selected this hotel based on the ammenities of the kitchenette. This came in handy however did not save a great deal of money as we thought it would. In our lack of preparation we did not realize how expensive groceries were in Banff, especially at the on site store. On the other hand the on site... More

On previous trips to Banff I stayed at the Rim Rock and Banff Springs. On this particular ski trip I stayed with a group that chose the Douglas Fir. The place was nice but it was not luxurious in any way. I liked that we could do laundry on the premises, the bus service, wireless internet access and the Buffalo... More

The Douglas Fir has a very pleasant location just outside the town of Banff. The chalets are nice. The staff is friendly and attentive the the guests' needs. All told we had a very nice 8-day stay there. the only downer was a group of rowdy, drunk young women who kept a lot of people up one night. But the... More

As many other reviewers have already stated, this place is great for families with children. Why? They have a great set of multi-story water slides (our children spent hours swooshing down them) and a large, multi-story playscape/playground, which again, our children spent many hours climbing around on/over/under. If your family is like ours, when in Banff you will spend a... More

We (mom and 8 year old daughter) have stayed in this resort 2 times in the last year and now consider it our "go-to" weekend getaway from Calgary. Here's why... 1. Quick drive from Calgary. 2. The breakfast deal is a good price if you go in the off-season (fall or late spring) 3. The kitchen is so convenient and... More

We stayed at Douglas Fir July 31 to Aug.4. We stayed in the studio with kitchenette. We took advantage of the breakfast plan. We were supplied with bacon, eggs, cream, milk, orange juice, bread, butter and cereal. The room was absolutely spotless with every anemity. The kitchenette was well equipped and there was even a dishwasher. Free coffee is supplied... More

We stayed here for one night in a one bedroom suite with the "make your own breakfast" package. We thought it was a terrific deal. We were traveling with a 3 and 4 year old so we took advantage of the waterslide access and we all played on the waterslides for hours - we even got an hour of playtime... More

travelling with your kids? STAY HERE. we found the staff to be courteous and helpful, the room was immaculate and the location couldn't be beat. Having a kitchen was a treat as we had been eating out so much, we spent a nice afternoon at the onsite waterslide (terrific) then treated ourselves to a pizza cooked in our room and... More
