This is the second time we stayed here.
Pros- free underground parking, close to the heart of Banff, clean and safe, a very good price/good value.
Cons- After a day out, a nice hot tub is a must. The hot tub situation here is weak. Its just a tub in a small room. Its out of date and not very aesthetically pleasing. No view, just pure utility. If the tub/pool is important to you, this is the wrong place.
The ceilings are low and it creates a dark and crowded feeling in the halls.
We got a loft suite. There were 3 beds, when there should have been an option to have a sitting area instead. I would have hoped there was a fireplace in the loft suites. That being said, there is a fridge. The downstairs of the loft has a flat screen TV, but the upstairs has a big tube TV. I don't really watch TV, but for the price of a loft, one would expect better.
Overall - The hotel is showing its age, but there is great value in staying here. I would go back. I can't rank it higher than 3 because I am a return guest for value only. The hotel is a value place, not a fancy high end place. Please don't mistake my use of word value - The place is clean, well located, and well priced. Just nothing fancy.
