Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

Nice hotel with modern rustic decor, unique hot tub design, clean rooms, comfortable bed, 10 minutes walk to Banff Ave shopping, Chillies reataurant inside with included continental breakfast.

Service was wonderful and made our stay the best it could be.

Only cons: no pool, small parking facility, limited conference room options.
Nevertheless, we would return to the Fox in future.

Very nice, unique swimming pool, would of liked to been there while it was snowing. We stayed in a loft, after a week of being on the road touring, the 2 boys very much enjoyed there own room with separate beds and there own bath room. Momma and I very much enjoyed the fireplace and the loft upstairs. Chilis restaurant also very good downstairs.

We stayed in a room with a loft and from the balcony we had postcard views of the Rockies. Terry and Sue at the front desk deserve huge pats on the back for being two of the kindest and accommodating individuals you would ever want to meet. They made our wonderful stay all the more enjoyable. The room well appointed, very clean and the fire place added the perfect combination of warmth and atmosphere. The hotel, though only a 10-15 minute walk from down town rendered an extremely quiet room. The complimentary breakfast had a nice variety of both cold and hot selections and easily filled the "delicious" square. Our only criticism was that the bed was just not comfortable. The mattress had some miles on it and was rather lumpy. Everything else was purely first class and well managed. Fix the bed problem and this hotel is without doubt a #1 resort!

Room Tip: The rooms with a loft facing the Rockies are a nice touch of class.

A modern hotel situated about 10-15 minutes walk from the town centre. Good service and excellent underground parking facilities.
Rooms were in a cabin style around an open courtyard with a hot spa pool on view in the basement.
All facilities were good but we had to complain about a group of residents who had been enjoying the bars and stayed talking etc into the early hours (3-4am). To the hotel's credit, we heard the Night Manager come and talk to the offenders, apparently not for the first time. This highlighted to us the thin partitions and doorways so that little sound deadening is incorporated.

Requested a ground floor room as I had a bicycle and wanted to keep it secure but outside the room. I was able to lock it securely right outside our door, with the hotel’s permission. The room was comfortable and clean. The location just a few blocks east of the downtown was perfect. A free breakfast buffet was included. It was pretty basic but adequate. The hotel staff was both friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the ground floor room facing the courtyard.

Our apartment was for great with bedroom and sofa for the kids. The on site restaurant "Chili's" was great for the kids. Breakfast was a treat with the waffle maker and the hot spring grotto was a super end to the day.
