“Great place to stay”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We stayed here for 3 days in August. Our room was at the back of the hotel and from our window, we saw elk walking around a paddock. We had a 2 storey suite, with the lounge and kitchen area upstairs and the bedroom / bathroom area downstairs. Breakfast is included, but its just a very ordinary selection, but enough to get you on your way for the day. Chillis restaurant is attached to the hotel and it is convenient after a big day of sightseeing. The hotel has great laundry facilities as well. We had air conditioning, which worked really well. You need it in the warmer months.
Great place to stay for families...

We stayed here just last week. This hotel was rated really well and we had lots of people we knew had stayed here so we felt safe booking it and we were NOT disappointed. We got upgraded to a beautiful room that had a view and a balcony over looking Banff Avenue, it was fantastic. The room was clean, tidy, nicely decorated and VERY comfortable.
The staff were super friendly and very helpful when asked about recommendations for places to eat.
Our only slight negative was the breakfast. We found that for the money the selection wasn't great, we have stayed in much cheaper places that had much better breakfasts, but that really is the only negative in what is a fantastic place to stay, I would stay here again in a heartbeat :)

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade to a room with a view, you won't be disappointed, oh and take your bathing su...

Our family took a 2 bedroom suite which is a 1 bedroom suite adjoining another room so had 2 bathrooms. The sitting area had A/C (but the bedrooms did not). The suite was well appointed and comfortable. Breakfast downstairs was included. The location within Banff is excellent (on main road, and close to restaurants and a Safeway supermarket), the rooms seemed new and were welcoming. Parking is complementary in their underground garage, important in the busy Banff downtown. We did not take advantage of their swimming pool or other amenities but they seemed to be high quality.

Our double room was narrow and there was only one chair .No view at all.You were forced to close the curtains all day ,because the window looked to the corridor ,where people were passing.The room and the bathroom were very clean.The staff was good.There was underground parking place.Downtown was about 20 min on foot.

Stayed here for 2 nights in the middle of September. We visited during a warm spell in September and we were glad we didn't visit during a hot summer day (no air conditioning). Visit the Historic Cave and Basin before trying out the hot springs (pool) area in the lowest level of the Hotel (you'll appreciate it more). The included breakfast was nice and we enjoyed the Chili's restaurant in the hotel for dinner one night.

This hotel is well situated in Banff within walking distance of the main village.
The suite we had was on two levels very bright and clean and had enough kitchen equipment for our needs .
The staff were friendly helpful and polite.
Continental breakfast was included which was very good as was the service.
Included in the price was a free pass to use the local bus service so we did not need to use our car to get into the village or visit some of the local attractions.
My wife and I would definitely return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Pick a room on Fox street as this is away from the main road.

I thought the hotel website actually undersold the Fox.

Staff were very friendly and helpful from when we arrived til when we left.

We were travelling with our young son so having Chillis on site was a real convenience. The waffle machines were fun at breakfast too.

Our room/suite was great split over 2 levels and had all the kitchen facilities we could need.

I would definitely stay here again. Hopefully when we return during skiing season.
