Visited with 10 friends. Rooms refurbished from my last visit in 2008. Clean comfortable rooms. Great service at reception. Cozy small bar, not great beer selection but fine for pre dinner drinks. Breakfast fairly basic but adequate for starting the day. Great value overall and

Dear J W, Thank you for your question. The Banff Ptarmigan Inn offers complimentary heated underground parking, on a first come first serve basis. Availability is difficult to predict, based on hotel occupancy, how many guests arrive by car, shuttle or tour bus and our guests come and go all the time when exploring Banff. Should the underground parking be full at the time of your arrival, there is also free street parking around the block of the hotel. Our front desk team is happy to show you where to go if necessary. Please do not hesitate to contact us directly if you have any questions. Warm Regards, Team Banff Ptarmigan Inn
