We booked the standard double bed hotel room at the Fox, and at check-in, they offered to upgrade us to a king bed suite for only $30 more night -- far less than the advertised cost difference. They've got nice room diagrams out on the counter to illustrate the different room layouts, and indicated this is standard procedure if there... More

I am very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. It is too bad we were full house when you came back to town, looking to stay with us again. You will have to come back again soon! Keeping the blinds of the rooms down, and the windows closed during the day, is the best way to keep... More

Really a great hotel. Got upgraded as we were Expedia Preferred members which was nice. Room perfectly clean and modern, and hot tub was amazing. Neat to be in it and look up and see the stars. Best off all hotels we have stayed at in Banff...and we've stayed at lots living in Calgary my whole life. GO THERE!

Thank you for your comments. I would have to agree with you, our unique Cave & Basin inspired hot pool is like nothing else. Gazing up at the stars while having a soak is both relaxing and romantic. Especialy in winter when the soft snow flakes come down and the hot steam rises. We hope to welcome you back again... More

We really enjoyed the five night stay at the Fox. We opted to upgrade our room at check-in to a suite for the view of the mountains and got a room with a balcony. Each suite has a king size bed, kitchenette and mini-fridge, and sitting room with gas fire place. The interior courtyard is nicely designed with a special... More

The Fox staff are very professional and exceptionally helpful and friendly; they couldn't be better! On an evening when it rained, a front lobby staff ran out to give me an umbrella which was very much appreciated - really great staff. A Chilis restaurant in the Hotel provides a good breakfast everyday.

Stayed here for about 3 nights with a prepaid rate. After having asked for a quiet room facing the inhouse courtyard, we have been really satisfied (unfortunately, rooms are very small with only 2 double beds and no queens, but it has been clean). Nice hot tub area, but unfortunately seemed too hot (might have been more then 40°C...) Breakfast... More

Really comfy for extended ski trip in Banff or place for family to base out or for while in Banff. Property has a rustic mountain cabin feel ..mountain views right from the property and nice walking distance to town so our kids ages 13 & 15 could venture off by themselves and explore the local town a bit.. Cool pool... More

Since there are many places to stay in Banff, we relied heavily on TripAdvisior for this choice, and once again were not disappointed. The nice Receptionist gave us Room 408, which only had one neighbor and looked over a side street, so it was very quiet. Actually, I could sometimes hear noise from the adjoining room, our 2 hallways and... More

Modern hotel, underground parking, small rooms but extremely functional. Breakfast included, Chilis bar and restaurant, great spa and easy walking distance, to town center. A very good choice.

Stayed here in July with friends whilst exploring Banff and the surrounding areas. Nice simple hotel in a great location so worth checking out. I didn't get the chance to use the open air hot tub but was told that friends that it gets the thumbs up !
