Never go to a conference here. If you have any say, never book a conference here. They over booked and then randomly chose conference attendees to send to the farthest possible hotel that is still technically in Banff. People who made reservations months ahead of time were told to trek across town (and up the hill to the centre) to get to the conference (which continues well into the evening).

There are so many better places for conferences, so you really don't have to put up with incompetence.
