We stayed at the Fox from August 22-25, 2008. The check in person was very pleasant and knowledgeable. He gave us a coupon book for the town. The standard room is with two queen beds, which was our room. The hotel is new and very nice but the rooms were tiny. We didn't have a place for our luggage. There is a closet right as you walk into the room. They should knock out the closet and put in a hanging rod.
There is a large, underground hot whirlpool which makes you think you are in a cave. It was pretty cool. My husband and I went to the whirlpool for 2 evenings and then again one late afternoon. Everytime we went there were kids runnning around, splashing and even had their water goggles on. The parents were using it as a swimming pool for their children. We did not stay long.
There is a continental breakfast in their Chili's restaurant which I thought was very good and always being restocked. The regular foods being cereals, fresh fruit, danish, muffins, scones, yogart, bagels, and toast. It was nice to get up and have a nice breakfast before leaving on your hikes for the day. We did not eat at Chili's because Banff is full of international cuisane.
The hotel is walking distance to the town. There were many shops to browse. While we were there we had the treat of viewing a Chinese Dragon performance in the town square made up of young people. The performance was wonderful and you can tell the children worked very hard learning their routines. They even threw out "good luck" chinese candy to the crowd.
Overall my stay was pleasant at the hotel. I just wish the rooms were bigger.
