Located right on the main drag of Banff, this lovely, spacious room was easy walking distance from all the restaurants, shops downtown and the train station. Lots of nice amenities in the room however there was a lot of noisy foot traffic going by on the street all night long and even in the hotel. The front desk did immediately... More

Hotel was good value for Banff and was located a short walk into town. The elevator is very slow and small for an inn that size but that was the only drawback. Rooms were clean and spacious. Breakfast had a good variety of hot and cold items. Did feel bad for the person working breakfast as she was having a... More

The hotel is very close to downtown - 3 blocks. They offer a continental breakfast that for most people works great. The rooms are clean and ours was roomy. Our view was of 2 mountains which was a request that we asked for and they provided. The rates are better than most and affordable. The pool and 2 hot tubs... More

This was one of the the last rooms left when we called on on the spur of the moment and we suspected other guests had chosen the smaller and I guess cheaper. However,we were thrilled with all the space and the cleanliness as well as... More

This is a good value hotel, not too far to walk into town, rooms a good size, beds comfortable price fairly reasonable, and the staff friendly and helpful.

The underground free parking was a plus. The staff... More
