I recently stayed at the Aspen Lodge with a group of 9 guys for a stag and we had a great time.
The rooms were perfect size, clean and spacious.
The outdoor hot tubs were a special touch which we took advantage of many times during our stay.
The staff was amazingly friendly, the desk manager Sue was easy to deal with and never said a word if we were a little loud (which we easily could have been in the late afternoon, early evening in the hot tub area) But we were always gone in the evenings.
They run a very efficient ship at the Aspen Lodge and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, cozy place to stay which in Banff.
The walk to the heart of Banff Ave was 5 minutes, and we had everything we could need just minutes from our door.
The only thing keeping it from being an excellent was that our last night we had room 110 which is right off the lobby. So as early at 6 a.m. there was a bit of noise from people coming and going which made it a little tough to sleep as we didn't have to get up until about 730.
There is also a shuttle right next door that traveled to all 3 resorts in the area.
We booked the trip with ski3 and they took really good care of us. Would deal with again in a heartbeat.
