We wanted a convenient location as we were in Banff for a birthday celebration and we knew we would be drinking. Room was fairly clean (only one "short and curly' found in the bathroom and the mirror was slightly dirty). Bed was comfortable and the rest of the room seemed clean. Air conditioning fan was on the entire time which may have annoyed most but it created some good white noise so we slept fairly well. Only one drunk group came back at about midnight and lucky they only yelled and screamed for a few minutes (I don't know of one hotel on this planet that doesn't have paper thin walls). Seems the Alberta resident special puts all the Albertans at the back of the hotel with views of the air conditioning unit or ally (this is the third time I've stayed here and I've never been put in a room with a view - I guess Brewsters saves those rooms for the international tourists).
Pub was expensive for a Big Rock Beer ($6 for about a 12 oz "pint" during happy hour - go to the St. James Gate and pay that for a international brew in at least a 16 oz pint)
Anyway, as I've mentioned, it was decent enough (though price could be a bit better during the shoulder season - $150 + taxes for a king).
