“Very enjoyable stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We stayed at the Fox hotel for three nights in July 2014. The hotel was very nice - conveniently located and a short walk from downtown Banff. We had a standard room which was roomy, clean and nicely decorated with the fox theme. The hotel staff was very accommodating and helpful. They have a "no noise" policy after 11 p.m. so it was quiet and relaxing (actually it was quiet all day). Included is a buffet breakfast which was nicely done - fruit, juices, beverages, cereal, bagels, muffins, danishes, etc. There is an exercise room, pool and spa. Free underground parking. There is a Chili's in the hotel which was nice for dinner one night. We enjoyed our stay and would certainly return in the future.

We booked 3 nights in a suite at this hotel. After staying at the Fairmont properties in Jasper and Lake Louise - it certainly didn't compare but the suite was lovely and the staff extremely helpful. Our suite had an sitting room, kitchenette, dining table on the first floor and a lovely bedroom on the ground floor with an attached bathroom. Very adequate and comfortable.

Chilli's restaurant at the hotel was also great as we tried it out for lunch.

The hotel is about a 20 minute walk to the centre or you can take a free shuttle. We actually just opted to take taxis to different restaurants downtown which worked out to about $7 to $8.

Definitely check out the hot pool which is very relaxing.

All in all a nice hotel and would definitely recommend to other travellers - particularly if you have children.

Room Tip: Try and book a suite rather than a normal room as its only $50 extra and air conditioned.

We booked 3 nights here in July, in a I bedroom suite. Very attractive and comfortable rooms, very well equipped, with a small kitchenette including a microwave and fridge. I loved the themed decor - fox light fittings and wallpaper! The rooms were very clean and well maintained. Reception staff were very helpful and welcoming. The continental breakfast was fantastic. We are in the restaurant one night - food ok but nothing special. The hotel is within walking distance of the town, situated on a busy road, but this isn't a problem.

Room Tip: The hotel has an inner courtyard which has many rooms and suites overlooking - the lower floors are...

My wife and I had a vacation of our dreams in Banff, thanks in no small part to Fox Hotel and Suites. We upgraded to a suite with a living room, kitchenette and balcony because we couldn't see not being able to enjoy the outdoors at our hotel. Every view in Banff is to die for, and the Fox didn't disappoint. The view from our balcony included three mountains and beautiful, majestic trees. The kitchenette was basic, and couldn't have been used to make a dinner. The bathroom was very small. There was only one place to get ice, in the basement five floors below ours, and the soft drink machine was always empty of diet Cokes. The AC in our room worked well, and was needed. The lobby was dinky, and one male clerk was a semi-grouch never smiling or saying an unnecessary word. The breakfast buffet was adequate with self-made waffles and toast being the only warm servings. It was nice having a Chili's in the hotel, although with the dining options in Banff we only ate there once in four days. They need to make some improvements, but on the whole this place is a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper floors in the back of the hotel.

Stayed in an apartment with a separate lounge area incl small kitchen. Microwave oven only and fridge.
comfortable 2 seater settee and single chair. Table with 4 chairs.
Large Flat screen TV in lounge area and also in the bedroom.
Two wardrobes one in the wash area and the other in the lounge area.
King size bed with a drawer unit. No dressing table or mirror which did not impress my Wife. One armchair in the bedroom
Wash area has a mirror but no space to sit down so Ladies will need to do their makeup etc standing up!
On the whole it was a clean apartment with good housekeeping.
Reception staff friendly and helpful. Bus tickets available to take the bus from directly outside to the centre or to Sulphur Mountain. Although its about a 10-15 minute walk to the centre of Banff.
Air con did work well but was slightly loud.
The whole apartment was a dark place especially the lounge area. Lights needed on in the daylight.
Parking was free underground.
The restaurant was a chain (Chilis) and not particularly good. Many other places to eat. Breakfast was a continental affair with make your own waffles and a selection of fruit, yoghurts, pastries, orange juice and toast.
There is a free hot tub and Sauna which we did not use.
Rooms have free wifi with a good signal.

We stayed in one of the suites during our family vacation to Banff. Suite was well-furnished with modern fixtures, a small kitchen, two bathrooms, and two bedrooms plus a pull-out sofa. The beds were very comfortable and the linens were are high quality. Another amenity was that the windows opened, so we could breath the fresh mountain air instead of the stuffy hotel air that you are often stuck with in more traditional hotels with sealed windows. Overall, we were very impressed by the quality and cleanliness of the rooms.

The free breakfast offered is a slightly fancier continental breakfast, with make-your-own waffles, fruit, and pastries. The hotel is in an ideal location right on Banff Avenue, and you can easily walk to anywhere in Banff that you would like to go. Parking is free and on site.

Room Tip: The exercise room does NOT include a treadmill. There is no pool on site, but the expanded hot tub...
