“Fantastic place to stay, loved it!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

I picked this place based on the reviews I read here, and I'm glad I did.

We had a room on the 4th floor, facing the street. The room was perfect - comfortable bed, nice layout, and very clean.

The front desk staff were the best I ever encountered. Friendly, helpful, and professional!

The grotto tub/pool/sauna was very unique - in fact, we only stayed one night and had a choice between that or the hot springs, and we chose the grotto because it was so cool! Our kids loved it.

The parking is VERY tight. If you have a tall vehicle, forget it. Not something that could be helped though, looked like every hotel along that road had limited parking.

It was expensive but worth it. I think it would be a great hotel for a honeymoon. We did see a few honeymooners there, in fact :)

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 417 and it was really nice. Good view, and was in the corner.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

We stayed In the Fox Hotel & Suites for a wedding on June 28. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. The room itself was adequate, however it was VERY hot and the thermostat allowed for only hot temperatures. There was no A/C and no fan to even move air. We had a room with two queen beds. One of the queens was in good shape, however the second one sloped significantly from the middle to the floor, creating a falling sensation for anyone lying down.

I've stayed in a number of hotels in Banff before and this hotel while adequate, would not be on the top of my list for next time.

Really lovely hotel with great facilities including a underground hot pool and spacious well equipped rooms (we had a small suite with kitchenette). Breakfast was included including make you own waffles which proved very entertaining. About a 10 min walk from shops with plenty of parking - so great for being able to pop in and out of the town without using the car (worth noting with the hotel you do get a transit pass or hire of a bike if you want). Great room staff but front desk staff were not very welcoming compared to what we normally get in Canada.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

We enjoyed our 2-day visit to Banff (too short). This hotel was a short walk (5-10 min) from the center of town, where there were nice shops and good restaurants. Not fancy but clean and the staff was very friendly / helpful and the price was fair. The only negative (although minor) is that the standard room was a bit small and had no A/C (not a problem for most of the year but can get a little stuffy on warm days before it cools off in the evening). That said, you will spend most of the time exploring the many sites and activities in the area so you won't be in the room all that much.

We stayed just for 1 night at this hotel. The underground grotto style hot tub pool is very nice. Our room was nice and with an excellent view of course! Our stay included free breakfast which was good it was just a little crowded as it was located in such a small area. Excellent location and very clean and comfortable. Frond desk staff very professional and friendly!

Room Tip: I would try to get a room with a balcony if you think that you would use it. Any direction that you...

Fox hotels and suites are well fitted out rooms, but the basic rooms do not have air conditioning
which we found very oppressive as the opening window was small. We couldn't get the temp below 21c with the fan on all afternoon, Thankfully they upgraded us, but the facilities, pool, bar, parking etc wree really good

Our stay was excellent. The staff went out of their way to take care of us. The room was clean and classy. It was quiet and room service was a bottle of wine after long drive. Location was on the beaten path, but very convenient. Highly recommend. Five Stars for the staff " ALL"

Room Tip: Everything was great and "please try the Spa"
