I am unsure how often it happens but we had attended a conference. The conference rate was a savings of $18/night. We were told we had to book separately and were surprised at checkout with a $15/day/person "facility" fee because we were booked in separately even though I confirmed the price at booking.

Conferences are for everyone, mountains are not. I have physical limitations and this place is outstandingly deficient for people like me. Too many hills, Snow not cleared fast enough, have to go outside and climb a mile ling hill to get to your car etc. There wasn't even a soap shelf in the shower. I couldnt sleep because the whole...

Very nice staff and really good facilities. The food is excellent at Maclab Bistro as well; I had the Bison Burger and it was one of the best burgers I've had. The staff were very accommodating and made me feel at home. There was a fridge in the room as well which was great. We also had a few small...

This place is under a major renovation. You need to walk through construction areas to get to rooms. Fire alarm system does not work, signage on property inadequate as you try to navigate around construction areas. Sleeping areas should have been shut down or specific floors closed to keep guests free of construction. This has not been done. Guests have...

Banff Centre is the ultimate conference centre with a beautiful location near Banff town. Its a lovely place, in winter snow-covered with excellent ski, tourist facilities. The staff and professionalism in the centre is far beyond exceptions, definitely can recommend it for everyone who wishes to organize a conference.

Clean, quiet room, easy to use temperature controls. Parking is a bit of a walk away from my room. The food is typical of Banff, over priced. The staff was helpful with directions and maps. This place is located away from the downtown area making it quieter, far less traffic but no shopping in this area.

I come to the Centre for work occasionally, and it's always a highlight. A beatiful artist's retreat in the mountains, an inspiring setting for work or recreation. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Banff Centre, please never change!

The location of this place is the best in Banff. The places is incredible.It is quite, gorgeous, surrounded with mountains and forest. In February felt like being in winter wonderland. We have seen almost every day wild animals walking between buildings! Plenty of deers and elks. All campus was very well maintained. Despite of heavy snowing, the paths were adapted...

A nice quiet place to stay while working. My only downsides to this place are: I would have loved a comfy reading chair as my work required a good deal of sitting and reading manuscripts (but I was able to find other workspaces throughout the campus), and I'd call the housekeeping a bit sporadic. Otherwise, I was very comfortable there...

If you want peaceful, mountain living for your organizational event, this is as good as you'll get anywhere. Situated five minutes from downtown Banff, we had a staff/board retreat for our theatre group so budget was a major factor. Looking out onto the majestic rocky mountains, we felt like we were alone in the wilderness; but, we weren't the only...

“Several rooms have balconies. Campus has several buildings including restaurants, gallery, wine bar, hosts music and performance events. Fantastic facilities, great pool, climbing wall, fitness centre. 10 minute walk to town. Rooms are kept in good condition. Hiking trails and views in every direction. A different Banff experience from busy downtown.”
