“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We loved our stay here. The room was spotless, modern and very spacious, with fridge, microwave and comfortable beds. It was just a quick walk away from downtown, and the rate was very good for a Banff hotel. The breakfast was great too; lots of choices.

This hotel was by far our favorite in a 14 night roadtrip accross Canada. Will be our first choice next time we're in Banff :)

This is not a 4 star hotel, but it is a very good BW.
Had planned to stay here 1 night, but due to historic flooding in Calgary, were stranded as all roads in and out were closed, so ended up being a 2 night stay. The hotel is managed (operated?) by a Filipino family. Elsa, the manager, is unflappable. With dozens of frantic, stranded travelers at the desk, and the phone ringing off the hook, she switched rooms, juggled requests, and kept her cool during a trying time. Some of the staff were stranded at the hotel as well. The rooms were clean, the staff friendly. Breakfast was so so. I stuck to cold cereal. Beverages available in the lobby 24 hrs. The tap water in the bathroom is very hot - be careful.

Short walk to center of town. Would stay here again -

We had a very spacious and comfortable room that was kept spotlessly clean although now just a little dated. All the staff were very helpful and friendly and the Hotel is in excellent position being central but not too central to be noisy. Would stay here again without hesitation

We recently stayed here and found the hotel to be nice, clean and conveniently located. We were able to walk downtown and leave our car parked at the hotel. The room was clean and was nicely decorated. Hotel staff was nice and friendly. We would definitely stay here again if we returned to the Banff area!

As with most hotels in Banff property is showing its age. But efforts ongoing to keep it up. Rooms were clean and bed was very good. Centrally located and comes with an above average breakfast bar. Overall wuld recommend and would definitely stay here again.
