The charge of $15 per night for their facility other than the room charge is a big turn off. You pay to see an event at their place and they charge this fee on top of everything else to use their facility. It is interesting that the people coming to events that aren't staying there don't pay a fee to... More

Pretty pricey for what you get. Yeah food tasted good in the buffet, but not worth $20-$30 for 1 person per meal. Not really kid friendly. No microwaves in the room. Fridge is really small so you can't even be resourceful and bring our own food because the fridge couldn't hold it.

I can't say enough about the location, whether you're attending a conference or just wanting a relaxing for a few days. The views from every window are spectacular.

I liked attending a classic conference at this centre. Great location and nice place for hiking and enjoying your free time in the afternoons. It was almost the start of the winter, but we had 2 sunny days which were very refreshing.

Maybe a bit far to walk into town in winter but in summer and spring a lovely walk. The building is modern and artistic and about a 3-5 minute from from the city. Clean room and great amenities. The restaurant and event are great too.

All staff were very polite, courteous and efficient and actively tried to find ways to serve me. The lecture rooms and facilities for the conference were very good. Food and drinks were fantastic. One negative thing was having to share a bathroom with another person. Overall I'm very satisfied and I would recommend the Banff centre.

Love the Banff Centre! Have stayed multiple times for conferences and always happy. Close to downtown Banff, great pool/gym. Rooms are not super new, but very clean and reasonably priced. Highly recommended!

“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.”
