We have consistently stayed at the Red Carpet Inn for a weekend or two every winter for the last 5 years or so. We are from Calgary and very familiar with Banff and have stayed in many hotels. The biggest reason we keep choosing Red Carpet Inn year after year, is because of their rates. The rooms are nothing special, fairly basic, and actually quite dated in decor – but they are clean, and for their consistent rates of around $100-130/night on the weekend, we almost always choose them for a quick ski weekend in Banff. You will be hard pressed to find rates that low in Banff elsewhere on a weekend.
The free continental breakfast is also a perk, as when you are skiing, it’s nice just to have a quick, basic breakfast before you hit the slopes. Again the breakfast isn't anything special, but if it saves us a trip somewhere else early in the morning to pick up food, then hey that's good in our books. They also have heated underground parking which is an added bonus. Also the hot tub is great and is well maintained.
If I was looking for a “special getaway” – romantic weekend, etc. in Banff, I would probably choose somewhere else a little newer and more upscale, but for one night or two in Banff where you are skiing and not even spending much time in your room, this hotel is definitely a great value.
