This was our second stay at the Fox Hotel and Suites. Both of our stays have been excellent! We had a wonder room and totally enjoyed our time there! The hotel is a nice walk to the main shopping in Banff and has underground parking. The parking is extremely tight for a truck, we have a SUV and had no... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during the hottest period in 5 years. Although the rooms are not air conditioned, they stayed acceptably comfortable. The fan provided did the job. The place was a rustic beauty. The lobby (air conditioned) was spacious and inviting. The best parts were the under ground parking and that a Chili's restaurant was integrated into... More

My family of five just stayed at the Fox for 4 nights while in Banff. We enjoyed it very much. I booked a 2 bedroom/2 bath unit many months ago. The Fox Hotel has many different room configurations available. I was able to get 15% off for a stay of 4 days or more. I researched the many hotels of... More

The location is very convenient -- you can walk to downtown or take bus that stops right in front of hotel. The hotel provided free bus passes. The staff was very helpful with suggestions and bookings for activities. The breakfast was so-so (make yourself waffles, and an ssortment of pastries, cold cereal and yougart). The service staff at breakfast was... More

This was our first hotel in Canada having decided to spend two weeks exploring the Alberta and BC. We stayed for two nights, the room was comfortable with good facilities (although no air conditioning) Breakfast was included in the room rate and although busy, the waffle machine was worth the wait. Staff were very helpful and advised on local tours... More

Stayed here one night as a family so we had a suite with a pull out sofa in the living room. All fine in the room but the previous occupants litter on the balcony. Ate in the restaurant - a chain cafe not a real hotel restaurant but the service was friendly. Disappointing breakfast, cook your own waffles and no... More

We were booked here by The Rocky Moutaineer instead of the Fairmont or the Rimrock where we wanted to stay. The room we got was average with no airconditioning in the bedroom .. Although the lounge which was a flight above did have airconditioning and we left the bedroom door open so we managed to get some sleep. I think... More

The hotel has clean, standard, comfortable rooms. The price is high simply because it's Banff. The service at this hotel, however, is absolutely superior! The front desk functions as a top notch concierge service.

We stayed here on the first leg of our honeymoon and enjoyed the suite room we had and the breakfast great. We were able to wander down the main street to all the sights and we could see the Rockies from our room.

We stayed two nights at the Fox. There was no AC in the room, and the bathroom exhaust fan did not work - it was impossible to get any airflow. The room was 85 degrees F when we checked in. By using a floor fan and leaving the outer door open, I got it down to 78 by bed time.... More
