3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Hotel Room was clean as well as overall appearance of the hotel. Although I believe that for the money I paid per night service should of been much better. Hot tub was closed by Health inspector and pool although it was open looked like needed some cleaning. Underground parking was very small and tight, some guests had to park on a street and parking in front was also limited. Although staff appeared to be helpful I did not think they were all 100% there. Breakfast was ok, as expected.

Front desk provided us with a cheaper rate - although still expensive. The room was ok, but very hot. The air conditioner was broken. Had to ask for a fan from the front desk. Easy to walk to downtown to explore. There was underground parking but our truck had a difficult time manoeuvring. It did include a free breakfast in the morning, which helped compensate for the price.

Arrived into Banff from Edmonton without any reservation. The front desk was attentive and we thought $179 for a two queen beds plus a full complementary breakfast for the 4 of us (2 kids) and secure underground parking was a gift.
The room was very clean and nicely presented with fridge and balcony with table and chairs!!! Wow !! All the bed linens were good quality and very fresh looking and smelling. The room had a comfortable welcoming appeal - all of this within a nice walk to the hub of Banff. All the staff we encountered were polite. The beds were in very good condition and comfy and we all had a great sleep.
The complementary breakfast was superb, and offered a great variety of quality freshly prepared breakfast foods, that even included fresh fruit, yougurt , prepared oatmeal and juices. This was easily a $20 per person breakfast without a doubt. We were so impressed with this complementary breakfast that we couldn't help but generously tip the breakfast staff who were attentive and polite.
The pool is rather small but this wasn't a issue for us.
Would highly suggest staying here. It is a nice clean and secure good value accomodation with the bonus of first class breakfast. Our standards are pretty high and this exceeded our expectations for this price category.

The hotel has nice rooms and underground parking. The breakfast offers a good selection of items and appeals to all.
We stayed for one night and feel that the hotel is overpriced. The location is so-so. I don't understand why the property is so expensive. We had to use our car every time we want to go anywhere and then had to deal with parking. If your activities our near this hotel and you are ok with price go for it otherwise find another hotel

The hotel is nice. The location is great. Nice short walk into the heart of town. Very nice underground parking lot which is free. Not sure how the rates compared to the other hotels in the area. Breakfeast was the usual. Employees were very nice and helpful.

Room Tip: My room had a balcony over looking the street. ROOM 205.

Great location close to downtown, awesome free breakfast (eggs, sausage, waffles, pastries, cereal, juice and coffee). The rooms are nothing to write home about but clean and decent. Allows dogs, a plus for us. Good value for expensive banff.

A few things that made our stay enjoyable here are:
Quick check-in & check-out
TV didn't work when we got there but maintenance fixed it promptly
King size bed is comfy and room temp control was perfect
Fast elevator service from underground parkade to 3rd floor
Ice machines have plenty of ice to fill up coolers in the summer
Nice view from the hotel pool
The cold lemon water at the entrence is a nice touch
Hot Buffet breakfast is good but small room copared to number of total guests
About 10 minute walk to main shops in town
A bit pricier than other similar hotels in that area

Room Tip: King rooms are spacious for a couple
