Hats off to the gentleman who works night shift at the front desk as his politeness was the best part of the stay. He is very good at his job! The rooms are a tad small but pretty enough. Use caution with the coffee pots in the room as it was disgusting and dirty. In fact the entire room didn't...

We spent a week here as home-base for our ski holiday in January. On a price-performance basis, it was a good choice. Can't fault it for what it is:: clean, comfortable and quiet. Room was fine, staff pleasant and helpful. Pool is more like a big hot tub than a swimming pool (can't do laps). Ski bus stops right outside....

It is now 4am and I can't sleep. It really is 400 degrees in here like other reviews state amd the smell of burning wood is in the air from the fireplace in the lobby. This place is nice but the screaming and partying of idiots nearby was ridiculous. The hotel is square shaped with an open court in the...

We stayed here for one night while doing some skiing. The check in was very good, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The underground parking was convenient. Free wifi is always great. Our room was clean but small. The bed was comfortable and the shower was fine. The room service menu looked good but we didn't use it. We...

My mom and I stayed here for 2 nights in mid April. Check in was a breeze and the fact that they have free underground parking is great. Especially since the weather can be pretty cold and snowy in Banff. Our room was pretty nice though a touch on the small side. I paid an extra $15 to secure a...

We stayed here for a week over Easter and loved it so much we returned for an extra night before flying back home. The Front Desk Staff are fabulous and could not have been more helpful, informed and efficient (especially a young Dutch woman whose name escapes me). The superior rooms are spacious and comfortable and the beds are simply...

Stayed here with my husband for 2 nights. Arrived and found our king room to be really really small. The staff at the front were polite and moved us to a different room right away, which was nice. The room is adequate, but nothing special. Bathroom would be much better with a larger bathtub or at least a tapered back....

The hotel has been updated. The room is nice and staff are friendly and helpful. Parking is free (this is only one of a few in Banff) as is Wi Fi. Location is near the end of the strip but the walk is not that far to downtown. Beds are OK. Rooms are hot as there is no air conditioning....

We stayed here for one night. The hotel is very pleasant, as was our room. The staff were helpful and friendly. However, it was too warm, and we were told it was nor possible to turn the heating down but to use a fan instead. There did not appear to be a working extractor fan in the bathroom either. We...

Beds are terrible. We got the "superior" room with "mountain luxury beds". Not sure what their definition of luxury is but these beds must have been bought at uncle Ed's bargain basement. Elevator seems like a death trap Not enough parking in the hotel parking lot so you have to park way behind the hotel.it would only make sense that...
