“A great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

There is a wonderful concert hall and a jazz hall in the basement. I also strongly recommend the Vista dining room with a wonderful view.

“Mid Summer's Night Ball”

An event held there for more than 330 guests to help raise funds for gifted art students to attend the Banff Fine Arts Programs. What a terrific venue and well organized!

“Best Arts Incubator in the World”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Summer arts festival is unparalleled. Saturday night formal ball is the highlight and is incredibly well done. Artists are amazing and it's a privilege to be part of their testing grounds.

“PARKING ARGGH!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

No parking virtually anywhere- be prepped and note that the walk up through the town could have you encounter the huge ELK in the woods. DO NOT TRY TO PET THEM (as I saw one Korean gentleman attempt) The Banff Centre is a nice spot to see some of the area's wild life. Some nice events go on and it's worth a trip esp on a rainy day.
