Reception staff friendly & very helpful & there's a great Whitebark coffee shop on site. Only drawback was the room was warm, no air conditioning. Would be uncomfortable in hot weather. There was building work going on across the road which did not bother us as we were out sightseeing while they were working. Very close to the shops and... More

Really liked this hotel. Only about a 5min walk into the main town. Rooms were spacious, modern & clean, perhaps a bit tired in places. Ours had adjoining king size & twin rooms with bathroom & two sinks in the middle so loads of room & would be ideal for a family. Motel style we entered our room via an... More

As many have noted, the breakfast here is top notch as complimentary hotel breakfasts go. The staff is quite pleasant and the little coffee place attached to the hotel is quite good as well. The hotel itself is modern and clean and is close to the heart of downtown. We booked an economy room to save a few dollars but... More

An expensive, one night stay in a 'lodge' that had extremely dirty carpets. We were traveling with our grandson who after having a bath walked on the carpets in our small, cramped 3 beds, two rooms. After a few minutes we looked at his feet and they were filthy. We then checked our own feet and found the same. After... More

The location is just right - close in but quiet. The room was a good size, clean and well presented. The breakfast was very good and set us up for the day. All the staff were pleasant and helpful so we enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately we had a busy schedule so we didn't get to use the pool and hot... More

The hotel is very clean and the rooms are comfortable. The free breakfast is quite nice. But I'm not sure the price is worth it considering the walls were thin and the hot tubs were broken when we came. Normally wouldn't mind having no AC but being on the first floor with a sliding glass door on the street side,... More

Whenever in Banff we stay here! Close walk to the downtown, quiet and never crowded! Both hot tubs are very nice whether summer or winter! Breakfast which is included is really nice, good selection to choose from! Rooms are okay, only issue is no air but it was not needed as we had thought! Cool!

We stayed here for our last night of our 10 day vacation across BC Staff was pleasant but not having AC is a def downfall and you are not told this until arriving at the hotel (thankfully the weather was cool so keeping the patio door open kept the room cooled for sleeping) Another bummer was the hot tubs were...

Visited this hotel recently and were very excited. We had been to Banff before and only had positive experiences. We booked this hotel in the heart of Banff for over $350. When we arrived we were informed the hot tub heater was broken and it sounded obvious to us there was no intentions of having it fixed quickly. If we... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am sorry to hear that it did not live up to your expectations. Unfortunately the boiler for the hot tub malfunctioned and required a full replacement. Some times these things do unfortunately happen without notice and sourcing the parts can take a little time for it to arrive especially... More

Very nice hotel in walking distance of everything in Banff......5 to 10 minutes will put you in the heart of town, with numerous restaurants from which to choose. As others have mentioned, there is underground garage parking, with an elevator to reach your room or if that is full, there is also another small covered parking area in the rear.... More
