We just returned from a family ski trip to the Banff area and could not have been happier with our stay at the Fox Hotel and Suites. The hotel is one of the newest in the area (built in 2005, I was told) so it is relatively updated. The staff at the hotel were pleasant and helpful as was the staff of the Chili's in the lobby. We stayed in one of the two story rooms (one-bedroom suite) at the rear of the building. The weather was mild, so we were able to park on the street just yards from our door. This made it very convenient for loading and unloading luggage and ski gear. We also had the option to park in covered parking below the hotel, which I'm sure would be better in snowy weather. The free wifi and parking were appreciated and were not free at many of the other Banff area hotels I looked at.
