I feel bad as I stayed at this hotel a year ago and meant to review it before now. It is a gem! It is very family focussed and the staff could not be more helpful or polite. The facilities within the suite were excellent, as was the comfort of the beds. Now all they have to do is reduce... More

We booked a suite, which had two floors. It was well equipped, nicely decorated, and had free wireless internet. It may not be suitable for everyone, as i had to carry two suitcases down some narrow steps, but for most people it would be fine. Talking of carrying suitcases, to get to our room we had to negotiate a set... More

We have stayed in this hotel before and knew it would be perfect for a multi-generational family trip. We booked several rooms so that each branch of the family could have their own space (for napping babies, stay-up-late teenagers etc). Everyone could meet for [the terrific] breakfast and plan the day's activities. We made sure to book at least one... More

Great hotel! The staff were always so welcoming and were very forthcoming with travel tips. My husband and I loved unwinding in the hot pool - such a unique concept! The room was always perfectly clean and had great amenities. The location is perfect. The hotel offers you free bus passes for the duration of your stay, but you can... More

We returned to the Fox with baby and two young kids (after having been there in July 2009 with our then two preschoolers; I wrote a more detailed tripadvisor review then). It is still a great place. It was very clean, I had no worries letting the baby crawl around the floor. There is a good combination of families and... More

Beautifully appointed but a little tight on space. Stayed in a suite with 2 double beds, kitchen and pullout couch with 5 people and it was a little crowded- not a huge deal since we only slept there. Continental breakfast was very nice every morning. The hotel provided us with bus passes to use during our stay which was very... More

For those looking for more space, I would suggest a two bedroom suite. A one bedroom suite with two double beds in one room, and a pull out sofa on the main floor living area may work for some, but for a party of 5 looking for more space a two bedroom suite would have been more comfortable.

We loved this hotel, it was the best 2 sleeps of our vacation! We opted for a slightly larger suite and did not regret it. Lots of space, our own kitchenette and tvs in both the living room and the bed room. Despite being on the ground floor we slept really well. The rooms let in virtually no light when... More

We booked the standard double bed hotel room at the Fox, and at check-in, they offered to upgrade us to a king bed suite for only $30 more night -- far less than the advertised cost difference. They've got nice room diagrams out on the counter to illustrate the different room layouts, and indicated this is standard procedure if there... More

Really a great hotel. Got upgraded as we were Expedia Preferred members which was nice. Room perfectly clean and modern, and hot tub was amazing. Neat to be in it and look up and see the stars. Best off all hotels we have stayed at in Banff...and we've stayed at lots living in Calgary my whole life. GO THERE!

Thank you for your comments. I would have to agree with you, our unique Cave & Basin inspired hot pool is like nothing else. Gazing up at the stars while having a soak is both relaxing and romantic. Especialy in winter when the soft snow flakes come down and the hot steam rises. We hope to welcome you back again... More
