Spent a couple nights in early January. The room was nice, though we were on the first floor so we heard every step of the people above us. At least they were not tap dancers. The fireplace in the room was nice, but make sure you set up the kindling well or you may need to find some more. Housekeeping needs to take the time to actually run a crevice and edge tool on the vacuum under the baseboard heaters. There was a solid layer of dust under there, probably years worth. And get into the carpet edges by the fireplace too, little bits left there as well. General maintenance seems to be a little lacking. Just looking a little tattered and worn around the edges
We ate dinner in the main dining room. Food was tasty, and service was ok. We checked out the exercise room, basic but it all worked. Steam room, lots of steam and nice and warm. Hot tub, Stainless steel, could have been warmer, but a nice way to kill some time.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Buffalo Mountain Lodge is a peaceful retreat on Tunnel Mountain in Banff, AB. The lodge is surrounded by 9 acres of towering fir, pine, and spruce trees, yet just a 15 minute walk or 3 minute drive from the shopping, nightlife and restaurants that are on offer in downtown Banff. A favourite visitor pastime is to observe the deer and elk who frequently nibble on the lawn, right outside the lodge's windows. The lodge has 108 guest rooms, an outdoor hot tub, and several options for dining, making it the ideal location for a weekend getaway, wedding, or corporate retreat. Buffalo Mountain Lodge is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts' family of companies. Rooms at the lodge have fieldstone wood-burning fireplaces, cozy duvets, LCD televisions and Blu-ray players. Many feature patios or balconies. Each room has been carefully decorated to reflect the mountain lifestyle in Banff-the accommodation is anything but 'cookie cutter.' The outdoor stainless steel hot tub is best enjoyed after an invigorating hike, bike or ski on one of the nearby trails-or perhaps to aid digestion after a sumptuous meal in the lodge's highly acclaimed restaurant, Sleeping Buffalo. ... more less
