Banff Aspen Lodge
Ranked #8 of 33 Hotels in Banff
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 23, 2013

A very good hotel, with above average rooms and nice amenities, like two outsize Jacuzzis and ample parking.
Its major let down is groups. The groups get preferred over regular customers especially during breakfast (time and better menu).

No AC just heating

Room Tip: Avoid early breakfest , you would not have a place as the groups gets priority waits till 8:00

Thank you for your feedback and I am happy that you enjoyed the hotel’s outdoor hot tubs with fireplace and complimentary parking! Should you arrive for breakfast and find that the Breakfast Room is at capacity, the hotel does have a ‘to-go’ option where you are able to take food to go if you are not able to wait for a table. Our breakfast menu is the same for all guests. We did have a particular group who paid a higher rate to have more variety at breakfast. I am happy to let you know that all guests now receive cold cuts and cheese as an option daily at no additional cost!
Sincerely,
Christy - Business Development Manager

We were very happy with this hotel. Breakfast was great. Yogurt, hardboiled eggs, cereal, oatmeal, toast, fresh home baked goods. We were also happy with our room. The two queen beds were in separate rooms with a bathroom in between. Very comfortable.

Really enjoyed the Banff Aspen Lodge. Recently remodeled. It's sort of "Banff trendy" but not kitschy at all. Very pleasant accommodations. Excellent rooms.

The cave like spa is worth checking out after a long day of riding or hiking.

It's about a 10 minute walk to town. We like to walk a lot so it is no big deal. The walk to town goes fast, there is lots to see and lots of other "tourists" to watch. I think the first store you come to is a big Safeway so it's easy to pick up any needed supplies - that's about a 3 minute walk.

If I were headed back to Banff I would check out this place first.

Room Tip: We had a suite that had an upper room that was a loft and a lower living room sort of arrangement...

Recently visited the Rockies, this is a lovely hotel with large rooms and beds. breakfast was a very good continental, the staff are friendly and helpful. Use the hot tubs, lovely after a day sightseeing. Banff itself is lovely would come again.

Room Tip: Basement rooms have a poor outlook.

Thank you for the review! I am happy to read that you enjoyed the hotel’s outdoor hot tubs, helpful staff and complimentary continental breakfast. Please note that our breakfast now includes cold cuts and a selection of cheeses, so you must come back to Canada to try our new deluxe continental breakfast :)

Banff is a place you will want to return to. We have been here now three times, and the Aspen Lodge twice. We can not speak highly enough of the town, and the surrounding area. Wildlife is never far away. The breakfast was superb, if you can eat a stack of pancakes go for it, if not sharing is the answer. I hope that one day we can return, and will stay at the Aspen.

A wonderful hotel , friendly and homely. Rooms were beautiful decorated a good size with a nice bathroom , very comfy beds . The breakfast was all local and homemade produce , Buffet style continental which suited us . We stayed here for three nights and it allowed us to explore Banff and local landmarks . They had an outside hot tub which was relaxing after a day out exploring. Definitely would stay here again .
