We stayed one night at the hotel in November. The check-in and check-out were seamless, staff were pleasant, and the room, bed and bedding was fine. The hotel furnishings are a bit dated, but overall we had no problems. Underground heated parking was welcome, as was the easy walking distance to the downtown shops and restaurants. The two jacuzzi tubs were relaxing to soak in, one being a few degrees hotter than the other by design. Unfortunately, the timer for the jets wasn't working on one tub, and the other would cut out after 5 minutes. There was a water cooler there, but the cup dispenser hadn't been refilled and was empty. Bonus points for the steam and dry saunas....they were very enjoyable. The breakfast buffet was excellent....we avoided the skier's rush and went after 9 AM. Decent selection of items, and having an omelette station there was great. There are much nicer hotels in Banff, but considering the location, parking, and hot breakfast for two for under a hundred bucks, you can't beat the value.
