Hotel is brand new and walking distance to town center. We had an interesting problem while there. Management forgot to lock our connecting door and we had an embarassing episode with our next door neighbor. This led to an upgrade to a luxury tope floor suite on the top floor with balcony and mountisn views. The suite was huge and... More

We stayed at the Fox hotel on July 6 for just one night but I didn't want to leave. It was the best place I've ever stayed at. We had a premium loft suite and it was amazing. There were 6 of us in the suite with 2 double beds, a king size bed and a pull-out sofa. There was... More

The room was about 250 sf, adequate for 2 people, with a mini frig, couch, desk, etc.. There was a continental breakfast (with waffles), and Chili's for drinks and lunch/dinner in the hotel. The hot pool was fabulous, especially after a day of hiking, with loads of clean towels and a separate dressing room to keep the hotel floors dry... More

Couldn't ask for any more. Staff very friendly and helpful - booked day trips for us. A small enough hotel for a personal touch. Rooms modern and clean. Hot pool excellent. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

My husband and I loved the Fox Hotel! It was clean, cozy, and comfortable. It couldn't have been a better location- just a few blocks from downtown. You can choose to walk or take the Roam Bus (free with stay at the Fox). The staff was extremely nice and professional. Parking was also convenient. The free continental breakfast included waffles,... More

Fox Inn was the 3rd leg of our honeymoon in the Canadian Rockies. When I checked in, the staff were very polite and even pointed out a few things my wife and I should do while in Banff. I had mentioned we were interested in brunch at the Banff Springs Hotel. Without hesitation the girl at the front desk picks... More

We stayed here for a weekend spring ski trip. This was our first stay @ the Fox, but we have stayed at the other Banff Lodging Co. properties and are repeat visitors. Service is very consistant from place to place. (Includes Inns of Banff, Caribou Lodge, Ptarmigan Inn, Hidden Ridge Resort, Inns of Banff and a few others). I was... More

After flying into Calgary and hiring a car, we were glad to arrive at the Fox Hotel and Suites in Banff. The hotel is everything you could wish for after a long journey and is very clean and cosy with very friendly staff. There is a free underground car park if you are driving. We only spent two nights there... More
