I stayed 3 nights at the Fox Hotel in September and absolutely loved it. Very unique and well equipped hot tub. The room was very comfortable with mountain retreat decor. Walking distance into Banff and close to everything. Very nice complimentary breakfast. The staff was amazing and so helpful. Thanks to Tas for the special treatment....will definitely stay here again!!

Room Tip: There is only one elevator so if you have trouble with walking ask for a room close to it. There ar...

We highly recommend the Fox Hotel and Suites! We stayed 4 nights in mid-September. If we are fortunate enough to return to Banff, we would readily stay at the Fox Hotel & Suites again!

Most importantly, it was very clean. We had the least expensive type room (one comfortable double bed). No fridge or microwave, but we kept a cooler and used the ice from the hotel to keep things cold. We used the washer/dryer ($5.00 Canadian per load ($2.50 for the washer and $2.50 for the dryer; 30 mins to dry is all that is needed). We brought our own detergent but you can buy it in the vending machine.

We walked everywhere from our hotel (10 minutes to most restaurants). There is a free bus, but we never used it. Wifi in the room was great for iphones and laptops alike.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor (4th) and near the HVAC system, but it never interfered with our sleeping...

We stayed 4 nights. The room was very comfortable and well appointed but all the rooms were facing into a square courtyard a bit like a motel. This meant that your room window was available for any other guest passing by to look through and you could only ensure privacy in your room by closing the blinds. Also, you had to put on a jacket to leave the room if it was cold or wet as the courtyard was open to the sky. Having said that, the hotel is very nice and the staff were very welcoming and helpful. Excellent location on the main road but just far enough outside the city centre for it to be fairly quiet.

The hotel it VERY nice, of course the hot tub is a grand sight.....the smell of the fire in the lobby and through out the complex is quintessentially mountain retreat. The room I had was OK, had everything I needed. The soap and shampoo is top notch. I was hoping for a room with a balcony, but glad I did not. The room faced onto the street, so plenty of car traffic and foot traffic, the bus stop outside was a gathering place till later in the evening. Not a fault of the hotel, but perhaps triple paned windows may have helped (like airport hotels). The restaurant was very busy, but I received prompt, attentive service from the bartender for dinner. Breakfast in the morning was a little lacking in hot offerings (plenty of carbs), but a "to-go" cup for my coffee was very much appreciated for my drive. I was unaware do I sit myself or not.....so after a few moments I sat myself, I never was I asked for my meal voucher. I would stay again, but would ensure that the room did not face the street. The Hot Tub area looked amazing and wish I would have taken advantage of it. Check in and check out was friendly, efficient and genuine!

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms facing the street

We loved our days t Fox Hotels and Suites. As we checked in they made us a special offer to upgrade us for a good price so we had a very very nice room with kitchenette. The Breakfast was excellent, fresh fruits, yoghurt, cereals, toast, muffins, waffles,...anything you want. The washrooms (even in the garage) were decorated with fresh flowers and were very clean. The hot tub is great! We will definetly come back to this wonderful hotel!
