We booked this hotel because we saw that it wasn't fancy, and it was a good price. We were in town to ski and required a decent place with a hot tub, breakfast included and within walking distance of everything. The hotel was pretty plain - rooms was standard in terms of amneties. Very large though. Bathroom had radiant heating... More

We really enjoyed our recent stay at the Banff Aspen Lodge. It provides everything you could possibly want in a hotel located in the center of the Banff. Many stores, restaurants, and cafes are in easy walking distance. We had two-queen suite with the balcony facing Banff Ave and the room was spotless. The hotel offers a free shuttle to... More

We were a group of five friends (women) who came from the UK on a ski trip. We found the hotel staff extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and they even remembered and addressed us by our names to say good morning/evening. We found the hotel very clean and pleasant. The breakfast was included in the price...

As a single traveler who arrived one day late due to weather problems, I especially appreciated the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff. The front desk is very helpful with suggestions on local places, skiing and getting around. The hot tub is very large and very comfortable even in -11 to -28C weather! I've seen some comments that the... More

My Family and I stayed here for 5 days in February. We were there primarily to Ski and Sunshine and Lake Louise. The Hotel is overall pretty nice, the 2 outdor hotubs and the location are the highlights. The rooms were basic and definitly dated, and could use an upgrade. But it had everything you needed.

Spent eight nights and we really enjoyed the property. The rooms were very comfortable and quaint and appear to have been recently renovated. The walkout balcony was great for fresh air and natural light in the room. Housekeeping was great and didn't just drop off towels and make the bed but really would touch up the room and it would...

We booked two rooms here the beginning of February 2009. When we checked in we asked for a cot for one of the rooms and they upgraded the room to add an extra bed for no additional charge. We had a nice view of the mountains and downtown Banff. There was a sitting room with a fireplace in the main... More

We spent one night here and had 2 rooms. Our rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. There was a sitting room (with a sofabed) and tea/coffee maker) and a fairly small bedroom. Oddly there were 2 sink areas/? The huge hot tub was just outside. The staff were friendly and the breakfast quite adequate. The indoor parking good (it... More
