We were in Banff at the beginning of the Alberta floods, and the day that we were scheduled to leave for Jasper instead we had to scramble our plans and stay in Banff. The highway to South was destroyed, the alternatiive route South was at least temporarily out, and there was a mudslide just to North of Banff. So, there was no way out.
The management at Fox, along with the management of Chili's which shares the building, was very accommodating and reassuring. We easily secured our room for another day or two or whatever it would take, and with other guests we huddled around the bar to get TV and website updates. Management assured us that the food supply was adequate for the emergency, although that was less true at other hotels and restaurants.
To make the best of a very rainy day, we enjoyed the spa at a neighboring but affiliated hotel. Highly recommend that spa. Think it was called, "Red Tea Spa" or similar.
Fox Hotel also has a hot spring in the atrium to the hotel, which is unique and enjoyable.
I recommend the Fox Hotel to any visitors to Banff. The facility was clean and pleasant. The lobby fireplace was inviting. My only criticism would be that the walk to the center of town was a little long, but on the other hand the hotels that we passed along the way did not seem to be as nice.
