As the title says, great hotel all around. Very well located minutes (walking) from downtown, room was in excellent condition and seemed to have been recently updated. Overall good size hotel, nice interior design, and great hot tubs (one with fireplace) in center courtyard. We've stayed at other hotels in Banff, and at this price point this is a wonderful...

The hotel is a bit dated, but the room is very clean. We are very nicely surprised that the room is kind of separated by the washroom and double-sink in the middle. This made two couples much less awkward. The hot tubs are nice but can be crowded sometimes. Not super close to the town center center, but quite good... More

Thanks for your feedback on the Banff Aspen Lodge. The hotel is located two blocks from downtown Banff; only a three minute stroll. Currently 2/3’s of the hotel’s guestrooms have been newly renovated and by December 31, 2010 all 89 guestrooms at the hotel will be complete; receiving new carpet, wallpaper, lighting, curtains and bedding. I’m glad you enjoyed our... More

If you are into very noisy street-side accommodations and lousy service from the breakfast room this is the place for you. When we made our reservations we were told we would have a room on the backside (mountain view). When we arrived the backside room was not available. Instead we were assigned a newly refurbished "premium" room on the second... More

Booked via tour operator after good reviews in Trip Advisor. Very well located with a very short walk to town. Staff were very friendly and helpful - a credit to the management. Rooms were nice - we were a family of 4 and had plenty of space. Very family orientated hotel - the heated outdoor pool / hot tubs were... More

Loved this hotel! This was the perfect place for our family. The rooms were spacious, newly renovated, and clean. Location is fantastic -- short walk to fun shops and eateries. This is not a fancy hotel but the amenities they do offer are done very well. The complimentary breakfast was quite nice with their homemade granola, various morning breads, yogurt,... More

We couldn't have asked for a better stay in Banff. The greeting was warm and efficient. The room was very contemporary in feel and rather luxurious in a Scandinavian way -- blond wood, cool lighting, great bath and amenities. There was a "take-a-book-leave-book" bookshelf and a fridge in the room. First stop after unpacking was the hot tub in a... More

I have to say that I was expecting a much better room than what I paid for. My husband and I booked a room after scouring the internet for any summer specials. Justhotels showed a price of $219 for a "premium" room which we booked for $169. What we got was just 1 queen sized bed with a small sitting... More

Thank you for your review and I hope you enjoyed your time in Banff National Park! Our Premium Rooms are advertised as having a balcony or patio, depending on the level that you stay on. The regular rate for this room is $219, but the hotel had a Summer Special in-place when you booked. The travel industry does do last... More

Our stay at the Banff Aspen Lodge was great.

What a lovely little hotel. Loved the decor -warm lodgey and modern combined- I kept saying to my husband "who ever designed the interiors of this hotel knew what they were doing". Very clean, and the staff are friendly. Loved the modern relaxing outdoor hot tubs. Excellent location, close to everything, yet far enough from the crowds. The beds were... More

Thank you for the review. The hotel has undergone a lot of renvoations over the past few years and I too love "warm lodgey / modern" feel that the Banff Aspen Lodge has! The train does use its horn whenever it passes through town to alert any animals on the train tracks that it is passing through. Looking forward to... More
