5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2011

Brewster's Mountain Lodge is one of the best hotels at which I have ever stayed. It has a cozy lodge-like atmosphere with modern spacial rooms some of which include a jacuzzi bathtub. The location was excellent, specifically due to vacationing in snowy November. The hotel is one block away from the main strip of shops and restaurants. A nice breakfast is included with lots of fruit and pastries. I would highly recommend staying here especially for a couple vacationing in Banff.

Great 2 night stay on a Friday and Saturday night in the centre of downtown Banff. Definitely a very conveniently located hotel and with $5 a night underground parking it is certainly easy. The parking garage is tight and people with large vehicles will have fun.

My standard room looked out onto Caribou Street which people have mentioned was noisy. If you close the window, then it isn't an issue. There is more noise coming from the interior door as it is located on the main walkway for the second level.

The room itself was spacious and had heaps of room and a table. The free internet wasn't very good and was quite slow at times but no big deal as there are numerous coffee shops nearby with complimentary wifi. Bed and shower appeared clean enough and made for a comfortable stay and sleep especially after long days exploring the magnificent natural scenery.

This hotel has a great central location regardless of the purpose of your trip to Banff. There is ample underground, secured parking which a nice extra. The hot tub and steam room are more than sufficient but nothing to rave about. Rooms are spacious and well maintained. Our only complaint was that our room overlooked a back ally to some of the nearby businesses. At 7:00am on a Saturday we woke to garbage trucks and snow plows directly outside our room, and the noise persisted for 45 minutes.

Room Tip: Ensure your room does not overlook the alleyway.

Just returned from our 3rd ski trip to Banff, and our 3rd stay at Brewsters.
We upgraded to a loft suite this time - if your budget can stretch the extra space you get in these is fantastic. The room itself was really quiet, and kept immaculate by the team there throughout our 11 night stay.
The complimentary continental breakfast is decent quality and served up in the (surely ironically named) Birds Nest. If you fancy something a bit more substantial, theres plenty of choice within a couple of minutes stroll.
You can't beat Brewsters for location - nothing's more than a 5 minute walk, including the ski bus stops to Sunshine and Lake Louise. Oh, and there's cookies waiting on the front desk for you when you come back from the slopes.

Stayed at Brewster's for a week at end February 2011. Having only ever skied in Europe and stayed in french chalets, Brewster's Mountain Lodge compared favourably. Our room was spacious with 2 queen beds and housekeeping was regular and very attentive. Location was fantastic, right in the centre of town, only a few minutes from the bus stop to the three ski areas and with a wide selection of good restaurants within a minute or so walk. Our room was generally quiet although we did occasionally hear the guests in the adjacent room or room above, but it wasn't loud enough to disturb us particuarly.

I had read some criticisms of the breakfast on this website, but we thought the breakfast was ideal - selection of cereals, bread/bagel/croissants and pastries with a toaster, fruit juice, coffee and selection of teas and even freshly made fruit salad every morning.

Sauna was quite big, the hot tub was always hot and fresh towles were provided down in the spa area. My friend was training for a run and found the gym with just 2 eliptical machines and 1 static bicycle a bit limited.

Only suggestion for improvement would be to improve the coffee/tea/kettle facilities in the guest rooms. We only had 2 sachets of coffee and 2 or milk each day which was never enough. Being used to the afternoon coffee and cake at the end of a day's skiing in French ski chalets, we really missed this. How about even having a coffee machine and mugs laid out at 4pm on the table in the communcal area where the computer is?

I had a week snowboarding with my wife and 6 friends at the end of Feb.
The hotel was great, friendly staff, great room, and breakfast.
The checking in process was good, I had everyone's rooms in my name and had been allocated 4 rooms next to one another, this made organising thing so much easier. The staff were very helpful with suggestions for eating and how to get around.
Facilities at the hotel were very useful, not only was there a warm ski/snowboard storage area, free lock were provided with the room to keep your gear safe.
The location was superb, easy walk to both ski shuttle locations, and to town.
I think my only complaints would be the size of the towels, and the bed rug. The towels were slightly smaller than I would like, but I asked for an extra one for our room and this made up for it (4 large towels 2 small was enough for the wife and I), the bed rug is me being picky, I had a suitable duet so the rug was more for show, like a throw sort of thing. Rooms were great size, with tea and coffee making facilities.
Basically Brewsters is the first place I would look to stay if I go back to Banff.
