“Pleasantly Surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

This hotel is a real jewel. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, delicious breakfast and the most friendly and helpful staff we have ever encountered. Everything is in walking distance including great restaurants, shopping, ski shuttles and beautiful hiking.

Room Tip: Our room was very quiet on the top floor.

We stayed only one night, but the staff worked hard to ensure we were welcome and comfortable. Our room overlooking the Main Street was not overly noisy; it may be at a busier time of year. The breakfast was certainly adequate but not extensive, and the staff made sure there were never any tables unoccupied! The walk to the river and shops was just enough to stretch the legs. The underground parking was being renovated so outdoors it was; glorious weather made this a non-issue.

This was our third week-long stay at BAL and as always we were very pleased with convenience, quality of accommodations, staff and breakfast. We had asked for a quiet room, away from the pool and hot tub and they complied. Staff are always very pleasant no matter how busy or how trivial our needs. Free continental breakfast is varied and fresh to fuel a day of skiing.

We enjoyed staying here very much. The room is pretty standard but comfortable enough, and the beds are soft. The continental breakfast is good, especially the homemade granola. The real treat are the two center courtyard hot tubs, we really appreciated the warmth and ambience of the facilities. The fireplace adds a great deal of beauty and coziness.

Banff Aspen Lodge really is within easy walking distance of the downtown (no need to move the car!), and that combined with a reasonable price and clean comfortable accomodations I'll stay here again.

We had our room upgraded for free, we were so disappointed with our original room 126 - absolutely made our weekend. Great service, good location and a very clean rooms. The continental breakfast is well beyond expectations.

We booked one nights stay here but due to a burst pipe in our room we were upgraded to an Executive suite, or condo. This wasn't actually part of the lodge but was located directly behind it. Added to this, we were also given a complimentary bottle of wine and chocolates to compensate us for any inconvenience. We thought this was really great, and Trevor was very eager to ensure we were satisfied with the arrangement. The executive suite was large and very comfortable. Only complaint is we had no hot water the next morning. And we missed out on breakfast due to an early start (breakfast is at 7am). However, we really appreciated Trevor's customer service but not sure I can comment on the actual lodge considering that we didn't end up staying there or using any of the lodge facilities. Great location though!!

The Banff Aspen staff are friendly, helpful and very accommodating. We had a minor problem with the bed in our room and as soon as the staff were made aware of it, they took care things immediately. When we had a question about a tour taking place in Banff, they checked it immediately for us and provided the answer. We have stayed in this hotel for about 4 days every spring for the past 10 years and we can say without hesitation that this is a very quiet hotel. You can get a great nights sleep and not worry about being woken up by noise in the hallway or from the neighboring room.

They have a lovely breakfast room with helpful, courteous staff that serve a superb, complimentary, continental breakfast every morning. They offer a made-from-scratch granola that is second to none! Lots of grains, nuts and dried fruit makes it so flavorful and wholesome! They also make delicious muffins and banana bread right in their own kitchen. Toast, fruit salad, yogurt, boiled eggs and juice/coffee round out this wonderful breakfast buffet.

This hotel is located one block from downtown Banff, so it is ideal for walking to a place to dine for dinner or going shopping. It is just two short blocks from Banff's one and only food court if you wish to keep costs down or you can visit the Spaghetti Factory upstairs in this same mall.

The Banff Aspen is well located in Banff and is truly a relaxing place to stay as our annual visits for the last 10 years attests to!

Room Tip: We are not aware of a fitness center. There is a beautiful outside hotpool in the center courtyard...
