Let's set the stage for what this review perspective is coming from. Being in our early 20s, we aren't looking for something high class and are mainly looking for somewhere to lay our heads after a day in Banff.
That being said, we don't want a dive or complete hole in the wall.
The Ptarmigan in fits perfectly for what we want, somewhere with a decent hottub (two different temperature tubs), good sized rooms and close walk to the main downtown "core". There is no swimming pool which is unfortunate, but minor detail. The rooms are clean and have a flat screen TV to kick back and relax to catch the sports highlights, while the beds are pretty comfortable. One draw back is that there are no mini-fridges in the rooms, which poses a slight issue for chilling the beers.
The staff seem very friendly and helpful when answering questions.
All in all a great place to stay if you don't want to spend $$$ on a place to simply lay your head!
