You can't ask for a better location than the Banff Aspen Lodge. It's within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. The lobby, hot tub area, and breakfast room have been beautifully updated, but the rooms are a little tired and had no air conditioning. What was also disappointing was that the rooms had really poor air flow due to the positioning of the hotel, so the room was HOT. Even keeping the sliding door open all night when the temp dropped to 45 degrees didn't help.

Stayed here as part of a trip to Canada and Rocky mountains with TC. Rooms very hot as doesn't have air con, although it is installed ???. Basic motel ok, but main road goes past front door so if its hot and you are in the front (as we were) its hot AND noisy. Currently tyhere is building work going on to make a new breakfast room which is basement and very small for size of lodge. Get in eraly if you are going on a day trip. 2 hot tubs but both are overheated came out half boiled after 10 mins.. Mosquitos a problem in sumer so take good qualoty repellant or buy locally.

Banff is tourist hot spot, with lots of neice scenery though

Room Tip: Ask for a side room, back probably is ok but hot in summer main road goes past front of hotel, nice views but noisy and hot. Wife woken at 2am , sat bolt upright when local bikers stopped outside - really funny but sad for her

Thank you for your feedback. The hotel does not have air conditioning as we are an environmentally conscious property and our location in the Canadian Rockies means that the temperature generally cools off in mountains at night. There is some construction occurring at one end of the hotel that will be complete by October. We are not building a new Breakfast Room, but instead another exciting new feature for our clients! The Breakfast Room does have ‘to-go’ breakfasts if you are in a hurry in the morning. I’m glad you enjoyed the amazing scenery that Banff National Park has to offer!
Sincerely,
Christy – Business Development Manager

We stayed for 2 nights in The Aspen Lodge, we loved Banff & this hotel is conveniently situated for shops & restaurants. We had a strange triangular shaped room which was a bit quirky but clean & quiet ( on the side of the hotel) Breakfast was a convenient continental but we found the staff a little abrupt. The hot tub looked great even though we didn't get chance to use it.

The Banff Aspen Lodge is extremely well located. It is about two blocks from the main strip. Can easily walk downtown in minutes.

The room was roomy and comfortable. The people who worked at the front desk were really nice and accommodating.

Didn't get a chance to use the outdoor pool or sauna but both looked really nice.

The breakfast was very basic (toast, fruit, yogurt, cereal, oatmeal) but the servers where helpful and it was nice to be able to grab a quick bite before leaving the hotel.

All in all we enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Currently the hotel is under a little bit of construction but it didn't bother us in the least. There is also no air conditioning in the rooms at the moment but it wasn't a problem while we were there.

Great Stay!!!

I’m happy that you enjoyed your time at the Banff Aspen Lodge. You must come back to the hotel sometime soon as we have upgraded our breakfast to include cold cuts and cheese. We will also be adding in bacon, sausage and scrambled eggs and these new items will rotate every other day (cold cuts cheese will be served one day and then bacon/sausage the next day). Hope to see you soon~

Nice setup for two singles. Spacious and well partitioned. Convenient location to Banff city center. Breakfast service very nice. Open air pools inside the lodge. A nice touch is a library of mostly paperbacks for reading.

Room Tip: Higher floors are further away from the pools.
