Hi all! My girlfriend and I stayed at The Fox Hotel & Suites in August 2011. We didn't know the hotel, but the opinions at tripadvisor were very helpful to make the final decision. Let's make a quick review from our stay: Location The hotel is located in a quiet area of the town in Banff Avenue. It is not... More

One of the reasons for booking this hotel was the trip advisor rating. We had a non suite room which was small very dark and very hot. Breakfast was not fantastic at all. They were very good about us changing hotels and tried to upgrade us to a suite but all full.

Chose the Fox based on Tripadvisor and other research, and were pleased with the selection. Great location (a reasonable walk to town but nice and quiet). We had connecting rooms, with a comfortable king for my wife and I, and a pull out sofa next door for our son. Nicely furnished in an upscale rustic style--very cozy and welcoming. The... More

Fox is an upscale hotel with even better management. We had a problem with the room which we reported immediately. Michelle at the front desk made it right. The loft rooms with mountain view in the back of the hotel are spectacular. Note that our room had a microwave and refrigerator but not a stove top/oven. Did not try the... More

Centrally located in Banff this is a good base if you want to hike in Banff or even lake Louise area. The hotel is on the main drag but not downtown so you don’t get the constant traffic. The Fox Inn is a nice 10-minute walk to downtown Banff or you can take the bus which is free with the... More

I had chosen the Fox Hotel because it was recommended on this website and in the travel guidebooks. Arriving at the hotel after the drive up from Calgary, I found the lobby warm and inviting thanks to the friendly staff, the fireplace, and the inviting smells from the adjacent Chili's Grill. We upgraded to a two-room suite. The suite was... More

The staff was warm, friendly and accomodating. The room was not air conditioned and felt stuffy. The bed was very uncomfortable. The included breakfast was very limited; consisting mostly of cold cereal, a few fruits, juice and waffles.

We booked due to the popularity on Trip Advisor but were disappointed. The place is on the main road into Banff, 10 - 15 mins walk away from the shops and restaurants. There is parking underneath the hotel. Although our room was clean and modern, it was very noisy. We were kept up by people in the adjoining rooms, toilets... More

Stayed in early September in a 2 -bedroom, 2-bath suite. Spacious with good amenities. Nice common areas, friendly staff, very nice hot pool, decent continental breakfast. Clean and modern and a good value for Banff in high season. If we ever return to Banff, I would certainly stay here again. The attached restaurant is a Chili's which is a little... More
