“Incredible views...........”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2011

..........from our private jacuzzi on the balcony whilst the (apparently unseasonal) snow came down - all 10 inches of it during the early hours of Saturday! Absolutely beautiful views and scenery made even better by the white stuff.

A fine place to stay with the same reservations as some others have already written - it does seem very popular with the frat packs on weekends - but the staff are brilliant when it comes to getting them out of the pools at spot on 10pm. Well done to them as it can't be an easy job.

If you're planning on a premier jacuzzi room ask for one away from the pool as it can get noisy. Unfortunately ours was right next to it, but we didn't let that spoil the enjoyment!

We were visiting from Ontario and stayed here for 3 days. This was very clean and comfortable and welcoming. The suite was fully furnished with everything you need. It had a kitchen and fireplace. The views are incredible. Every day there were deer outside our balcony. The wildlife and views of the mountains are amazing. You are a short distance to everything you could possibly want during your stay. The staff are very friendly. I would stay here again and recommend this establishment to everyone. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

I have stayed at many different hotels in Banff but really feel that Hidden Ridge Resort is the best place to stay when you have a family or group of friends that want to stay close together. The loft accommodations were perfect for 6 of us to sleep comfortable. Also, the big bonus is how great the outdoor hot tub is. Very social as it seems that all the guests like to use it.

The rates are very fair. To pay the same amount in the town site would be at least double in price. The cab ride to the town site is very inexpensive and certainly worth the distance away.

I don't normally write reviews but in this case something had to be said. We came to Banff for a much needed getaway from the city of Calgary. We usually stay at The Fox Hotel and Suites as we love the underground style hot tub. Everybody kept telling us about The Hidden Ridge Resort, so we tried it out........What a phenomenal spot!!!!!

When we got there it was nothing but great help and good times!!! We saw two bears and two elk as we pulled in to the driveway which was a pretty exciting way to begiin our stay.

The people at the front desk actually gave us a choice to what kind of room we wanted since they have the more common rooms with a bedroom and kitchenette, condo style room that sleeps 10 people and some with a jacuzzi on the balcony and some with a full games room in the basement.

We took a condo style since the price was great anyways. We had a wood burning fireplace which they brought us wood, kindling and paper. We were able to enjoy a home cooked meal in the full kitchen and sipped wine with some friends by the fireplace. We made our way to the outdoor hotpools over looking the town of Banff!! It was pretty awesome!!

All in all we had a great time!! The service was great!! The beds were super big and comfortable and the facility itself was exactly what we needed.

Our group went up for a empolyee retreat back in January . The set up that Hidden Ridge provided us with was absolutley perfect! We were able to easily go out to the mountains during the day, come back and relax in the hot tub in the afternoon and then at night we were able to cook ourselves a feast using the ensuite kitchen. There was plenty of room for us to spread out and an amazing view to boot!
Hidden Ridge is such a great location because we were close enough to main street in Banff that we didnt miss out on any of the action, but far enough off the main drag to feel like we were literally the only ones in the mountains.

I have stayed at Hidden Ridge many times before and have always been more then happy with my stay! so when my boyfriends parents told us they were coming for easter weekend, I couldnt think of a better place to take them then the Ridge! we arrived around 3pm and were happy to hear they had a room ready for us! I had requested a ridge view and they were able to accomodate the request which was great! our room was 2 doors down from the hot tubs and we had a great view from the balcony, we were greeted everyday with 2 deer who were always lingering around the ridge side, my boyfriends parents were very excited about this! we had a 1 bedroom with loft, so there was lots of room for the 4 of us! we were also able to get a lot of use out of the kitchen and the fireplace in the condo. Overall, we were happy to be able to show our visitors a great time in the rockies, I would recommend this property to everyone:)!

This hotel is perfect for city folk who happen to have dogs. It is always so difficult getting away from it all with our beloved companion. The manager Peter? took care of us and my little pug! In the room was a bed for him and a toy as well, he just loved it. The location of this hotel is perfect as the valley views are breathtaking and will be a stark difference from living in an urban jungle.

The hot pool is absolutely wonderful and gets an A+ on relaxing scenery. I definitelly recommend this hotel for anyone who needs a break from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Having been to Banff may times this hotel's location is perfect as you arec't choked on tour bus exhaust. It actually feels like you have escaped to the mountains not dropped yourself in the middle of a mountainous Disney World.

Room Tip: Front office manager was great!
