“Great Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Lovely location. Everything is walking distance.
The staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and spacious.
Great having a second sink and mirror outside of the bathroom.
Loved the steam room!!
Disappointed that WIFI and parking were extras. At least the coffee shop with free WIFI was a short walk. And parking is limited but couldn't park at the coffee shop as well.
Laundry facility was a welcome relief to clothing.

We stayed in this location for to celebrate a weekend away in Banff. There were two couples in their 30's and we ended renting one of the Lodge Suites for the night. They are quite spacious but they are all on the main floor. The benefit is that you get a huge room and two bathrooms, but oddly enough, they only have one shower in one of the bathrooms and a single bathtub in the other.

They seem to be laid out more for small meetings because the beds are Murphy Beds but nonetheless, they were quite comfortable. The location of this hotel is better than the typical nicer hotels in Banff like Rimrock and Banff Springs and has one of the best restaurants in Banff called the Terrace.

The pool area looks like it was just recently renovated and includes a pretty big 15-20 person hot tub. It also has a nice steam room and change facilities. Overall, I would definitely stay here again whether it be alone, as a couple or as a family.

Very impressed with this hotel - helpful staff and nice clean rooms.As others have said - good sized rooms with sink area and fridge. Only thing missing is seats on the balconies.
Easy to walk into the town (where there are 2 good supermarkets and many restaurants and shops) and also to Bow River pathway.
Pleasant pool and spa area although it gets crowded in the late afternoon.
Didn't take any breakfasts but the food in the Chinook restaurant on site was excellent in the evenings and reasonably priced.
Would thoroughly recommend!

Room Tip: The front of the hotel could be a bit noisy. Some rooms look out onto a wall!

Very well placed Hotel for seeing everything you want to see and do in Banff. Walking distance to all restaurants and attractions. Good standard of cleanliness and comfortable well equipped rooms. If you want to eat in the hotel restaurant it is advisable to book as it does get full. The Hotel is laid out in an E shape, so be prepared to walk some way from reception if you are at the far end of the E.

Well spread out Hotel with Opulent Lobby Area which has some pretty nice shops . Central location within walking distance of downtown area with shops,restaurants, money changers,bars etc.We had a Room facing the main road with a balcony.The Room, a bit dated but clean,spacious and comfortable.Good sized bathroom with all amenities and shower pressure. The elevators appeared a little dated and rickety but did the job well.Breakfast spread large and varied. A very comfortable stay since you have total access to the downtown and great dining and shopping options

We overnighted at BPLR, which overall I would give three to fours stars. Well situated central location. Value for money was fair, rooms rather sparten (eg no desk or terrace furnature) the terrace restaurant was very good. The underground parking ($10/night) was easlily accessible with luggage.

Very pleasant hotel, stayed here a few times now with the latest a business trip. Very comfortable, though a little dated. Good facilities and the breakfast is excellent, much better than across the street where I have been going for years. Parking is a little awkward but with an underground heated area still very welcome.
