Great hotel if you are looking at staying in Banff choose this hotel you won’t be disappointed.
We stayed in a one bedroom suite and it was amazing, spotlessly clean and tidy, plenty of storage space, wall mounted plasma TV's upstairs in the lounge and downstairs in the bedroom, 2 big double beds downstairs and a sofa in the lounge that pulls out into a frame bed, a kitchen area fully equipped with microwave, sink, toaster, kettle, coffee peculator (free coffee is left in your room each day) and cups plates and cutlery, bathroom with a powerful shower and clean towels daily if you want them. The rooms were cleaned daily and were always spotless with free coffee and bathroom products left each day.
The hotel facilities.
The hot spring pool "wow" is what everyone says when they walk in it is great design with rock features and waterfalls, the pool is big enough for everyone to fit in and is great to relax in after a cold day on the mountains, there is a part of the pool that is a Jacuzzi and if you not quite hot enough there is even a sauna to cook you a little more. There are changing rooms and a shower so you can change and where you collect your towels from before going in the pool and is you are up a little exercise there is a fitness room with some cardio equipment and free weights for you to use. There is a guest laundry with coin operated washers and dryers that cost $2 and take about half hour to wash, a free underground heated car park , ski lockers, night vending machines and a computer and printer if you need it plus the hotel has free wi-fi all over.
The restaurant - Chilli's is the bar restaurant in the hotel and serves a full menu of good food at great prices, from my experience of other eating places around town it is probably the cheapest place in town for a restaurant meal. The bar area shows all kinds of sport throughout the day and is all table service. The restaurant is where the hotel provides the free breakfast for guests when you hand in a breakfast voucher given to you at check in, this is a buffet style layout with waffles, cereals, fruit, yoghurt, eggs, muffins and toast plus all the fruit juice, tea and coffee you can drink.
All the staff are warm friendly and welcoming and do all they can to help you or provide you with information if there is anything you want or need, and there is a little army of porters who bring anything you want straight to your room.
The hotel is a five minute walk along Banff Ave to the shopping area and if you don’t feel like walking the hotel reception provides you with a free bus pass and there is stop right outside the door so you can get the bus into the town or up to the Banff hot springs or Sulphur mountain gondola, Banff Ave is the main road through Banff and can sometimes be a busy road but road noise cannot be heard from inside the hotel. For those of you who re going to ski all of the ski busses to take you to Mt Norquay, Sunshine and Lake Louise pick up from the hotel next door on a regular basis so you don’t have to go far and it is very convenient.
Overall this is a great hotel in a great town and we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay here and will stay here again if I am lucky enough to travel back to Banff.
