We stayed at Brewster's Mountain Lodge for 9 nights for a ski trip. We'd stayed at the Banff Park Lodge and Banff Springs before, and although we wanted to be in the center, we hoped that Brewster's would be upscale from the BPL.
There is no better location if you want to be in the middle of town, just off Banff Avenue in the middle. The hotel is probably because of location and it's a bit slack as a consequence. There were three downsides to it:
1. The breakfast arrangement is dreadful. Located in a windowless basement, with nothing but a bunfight over toast, cereal and a few pastries, it made for a depressing first morning of the holiday. Nowhere to sit as every chair was taken with all skiers getting up and about at the same time. We didn't eat breakfast there again, and often went to Melissa's round the corner.
2. The hotel has all the ingredients to be great, but they don't bother. They don't even light the log fire in reception for 90% of the time - in a ski resort!
3. Although the rooms were clean (we had a loft suite and were disappointed at how basic it was), if you didn't ask for fresh towels they didn't even fold and stow your used ones. They just left them where they were.
Not sure that we'd stay again - wish there was a really good, really central hotel in Banff.
