Offered an upgrade to a suit on arrival but declined & took standard double room. For 2 people this is more than adequate although nowhere to put suitcase in room. Spotlessly clean, very well equiped room, staff were very friendly & helpful. Stayed 4 nights and only once had problem with noise at 2.30am, people in pool despite "quiet time". Took a long time to be dealt with but it was sorted out. Food in Chilis was fine, breakfast was fine but by day 4 was getting a bit repetitive. Would def stay here again due to high standard of decor and cleanliness.

My wife and I stayed at the Fox for 3 nights in September 09, and loved it. We had a superior 1 king bedroom suite on the third floor. It was plenty big, and the wireless internet worked great in the room. There was also a fridge, kitchen sink, microwave, coffee machine, and all of the essentials like silverware and bottle opener.

Everyone we met was very friendly, both staff and guests.
Just an easy short walk downtown. They will give you a free bus pass if you want it, but we just walked.

Great value as the parking, internet, and continental breakfast (including a make your own waffle station) was included in the room rate.

And of course the hot tub area is fantastic.

If we find ourselves in Banff again, we would stay here.

We stayed in the fox hotel and suites for two nights on our way through the rockies from vancvouver to calgary, we stayed in a premier room suite so i dont know what the other rooms are like. We thought the room was very clean and spacious , we had a balcony that was right above the main entrance , it was slightly noisy but not too much that would bother us, the room did get a bit hot but we just left the window open we never needed to use the air conditioning.The rooms were very quiet , in the 2 other hotels we had stayed in previously were noisy and you, could hear everything , the taps running and the shower, so we were glad that we got a good nights sleep! we had 2 lcd tvs, one in the living room and bedroom, and a kitchen area with a kettle, microwave, toaster and fridge, the hotel also provided tea towels and washing up liquid which saved us buying some. The breakfast as said in previous reviews was just really, waffles, cereal, and yougurt, toast etc. The hot pool was good, and it was open till 11pm, we went in late about 10.30pm and got it moslty to ourselves, the hotel provide towels to use when you are in the hot pool, and they provide lockers,the hotel has a laundry too but we never used it. We used the free wi fi provided and we had no problems, also we used the phone in the bedroom to make phone calls to relatives in canada which is 10 cents a min and back home to the uk for 20 cents a minute which we thought was really good.

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights with 10 other friends at the Fox during Sept. 2009.
We had booked there because of the good reviews and it sounded like a fun place.
We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay, with the hotel staff, the amenities, the whirlpool grotto, the continental breakfast, and the rooms. We all stayed in the superior suites, 2 couples per suite. The rooms were spacious,comfortable, quiet and well appointed. The hotel bar and restaurant were nothing but fun. I recommend this hotel very highly.

We stayed here for three nights during our honeymoon in western Canada. On arrival we were upgraded to a loft apartment.

The accomodation was fantastic - spacious, well decorated, good aircon and extremely well maintained. Fluffy towels, robes and luxurious tolietries provided. The free continental breakfast was fine - reasonable coffee, muffins, toast cereals and plenty fresh fruit. there's also a waffle machine but thisrequired a bit of a wait.

Only slight negative is that given the sixe of our room which was huge the bathroom was probably the smallest I have ever seen. Really small bath with shower above.

Great location a few minutes from the town centre and easy to drive to from Highway 1. Easy parking on the street although they also have free heated underground parking.

Also great pool area- more like a miniature hot springs - not big enough for swimming but great for just relaxing.

We did eat at the attahced Chilli's restaurant one night and also had a couple of drinks at the bar. Nothing particulary special but not bad either.

We had 4 nights at the Fox at the start of our Rockies tour and I cannot rate it highly enough. We had a lovely suite with a view of the mountains (go for the top floor if you can), and loved using the hot pool (go at 6.30am whe you're jet lagged and up early - you'll be the only oes there!) The free breakfast and free bus into town were great extras and Chilis is a welcome easy meal after a day hiking. We'll definitely be back..
