We didn't use any of the facilities the hotel seemed like it had a lot to offer. It was well maintained and very attractive. The room was very clean although it was rather small. Our room was #363 on the back of the hotel. Although it had a nice view it was near the loading dock and the employees smoked... More

My husband surprised me with a trip to Banff for a weekend. We stayed at the Caribou Lodge in one of their suites. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The spa was amazing, best massage of my life! The RMT was very knowledgeable and the service was excellent. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Staff were very thoughtful and helpful. Room was nice. Beds could be firmer for my taste. Well located in Banff, with local bus stop within 30 yards. The hotel gives guests bus tokens. Had a little trouble with the temp control. Fan did not work, but window opened.

We had one night stay on Rocky Mountaineer trip. Banff is stunning but we were very tired after a long first day and jet lagged. Tried to book dinner in hotel but an unpleasant Aussie female with bad attitude said they were not taking bookings . Several of our party had already made bookings. Management were unhelpful as the chain... More

Shuttle bus outside that they give you a free card to use, takes you into town BUT the walk is not to far anyways, 15 -20 minutes.... More

Nice hotel with friendly staff. The walk into town was easy and took about 15 minutes. Food and service at The Keg was good, but it was expensive. The free shuttle bus pass is great and stops close to the hotel; really useful to visit the Gondola, or just when you are feeling weary!

The hotel was decent. It's a little pricey and a bit of a walk to downtown Banff. The bed and the pillows weren't particularly comfortable. The staff was very helpful and nice. The room was clean. The Keg is attached to the hotel. Its decent for breakfast, but definitely not worth it for supper (food is just ok and is... More

The hotel is adequate but the rooms are small and limited in facilities. The room was noisy and we had disturbed nights. On the plus side the food was good if expensive. The pool was lush and empty which was great. Just a short walk to town made it a good location.

very nice superior room with REAL queen bed (which is not the case in every hotel unfortunately), staff helpful and kind. very good situation inside Banff and the diverse activities. only bad point is the noise outside. the windows are poorly insulated and you hear all the noises from outside as if the windows are open. otherwise, very good place....

There were some reviews complaining of small rooms. We were a family of 5 and hd no issues with the room. The room wasn't huge, but was more than adequate. Bathroom large enough and well appointed(although just a shower, no tub) and beds comfy. The picture was deceiving as it looks like a larger pool area, but there is just... More
