Well that's what you get for leaving it to the last minute at a busy time of year. Quite outdated but had everything we needed, large room which was nice, comfy beds, bathroom and coffee. Staff were ok not real welcoming but we did arrive late around 9pm. Easy walk into town as it's on the Main Street which is... More

We stayed here with family including several young kids for 2 nights. The rooms were a good size although basic and both rooms had a balcony. The location is great as on the Main Street in Banff so easy to walk to the shops, restaurants, bars and walking trails. Great spot. There is also secure underground parking. The kids also... More

This hotel is located right on the main drag of Banff. It features, secure, private underground parking which is a plus for how busy Banff is. Our room on the second floor was huge with 2 separate bedrooms and a small balcony overlooking Banff Avenue. It is an easy walk to most restaurants and stores in town. There is a... More

I read a lot of reviews talking about how hot the rooms were in the summer. I didn't expect that to be an issue... More

We were visiting Banff on the low season and we were not disappointed!! The staff was really friendly and helpful. The lobby looks very lovely. We were in a nice room on the third floor with 2 huge beds, it was very clean. We had a nice view on the mountains. The bathroom was clean, too. I have nothing negative... More

Finally! This room actually works. When on the bench in the roll in shower the controls were where I could reach them not across the shower. Towels were at my level and the hair dryer was mounted where I could reach it. Someone actually made the effort to see what worked for a wheelchair. Thank you!

This hotel was in a great spot – along Banff Avenue with lots of other hotels but within easy walking distance to restaurants and amenities. We had picked up a hire car in Calgary so we needed parking to be included which this hotel had. We had a Superior Room with a Mountain View (see photo of view from small... More

The location of this hotel is great and we would have rated it a 3.5 stars if we could because of the location. It also came with free parking and wifi which worked quite well. The parking, however, left much to be desired if you have a SUV, truck of van as the ceilings are incredibly low...so low that when... More

Location is in the main street within walking distance of the food and beverage outlets if Banff. Rooms were clean and adequate, with comfortable beds.

We gone to this hotel at least 5 times in the last year. Great suites, value and management. Management went the extra mile for us during high season, which was truly appreciated. Absolutely love the location, walking distance to shops and restaurants etc. It is always clean and it is perfect for a short family getaway.
