It was 27yrs ago that we got married by a JP in the beautiful Banff Springs Hotel. After the ceremony and a dinner with our guests we retired to a Jaccuzi suite at the Banff Park Lodge for our wedding night. Fast forward to 2012, as a surprise for my wife on our 27yr Anniversary I decided to treat her to a night in Banff for a dinner and another night in a Jaccuzi suite in the Banff Park Lodge. Well to our surprise it was like going back in time.....little has changed and the hotel has aged. There have been little or no up dates to the decor or furniture. I was surprised that the TV was still a picture tube type TV, very few channels to choose from ( almost expected to get "The Beach Combers" on one of those few channels). The room itself was clean, except the carpet which needed a good shampooing or replacement. Now the hallways were another story, filthy. Food remnants and dirt everywhere. The staff were pleasant enough and the checkin was painless. Being located in a tourist hub probably does not help because they will probably always be busy and making money and meaningless reviews like this one will make no difference.
