Worked with the Events Coordinator and brought a group of over 60 for a 2 day Conference. Had never been to the Banff Center and was quickly amazing how amazing this facility is, has everything you really need!! A portion of the lodge was under construction so made parking and getting to our rooms a little challenging but understandable as...

Quite expensive but great place to stay. Close to Banff town where all services are available and in around 1h by car there are most of the places to visit in the Rockies! Roads accessible and clean after snowing days.

This is an artist's paradise. The room was large and comfortable. I had a large artist studio and the help of specialized facilitators that helped me reach my goals in video, photography, and sculptural production. High quality music and entertainment was available. The setting was gorgeous and the people were intelligent and friendly. I was able to use a lovely...

Stayed here Jan 29th 2017. Weekend away, it was recommended by a friend. Our experience was less then perfect. Very noisy, outdated and pricey. Be aware there is a 15 facility charge per person. If you don't utilize galleries, or fitness centre it is not worth the extra charge. There are much better options in Banff.

I attended a conference at the Banff centre and it was one of the nicest conference venues I have experienced. It has excellent facilities, friendly staff, great food, and brilliant views. I can strongly recommend it. Bathrooms were shared amongst two rooms.

Stayed here for a week mid January. The guest rooms are getting tired and in need of a make over. But the biggest guest room issue was it was it needed a "deep" cleaning. I could and did write my name in the dust in the base of the table in the room. Looks like housekeeping hadn't looked behind the...

I attended a conference here and they put me up in one of the rooms. It was very nice. Quite modest, but really, when you are at a conference you just need a place to sleep along with a reliable wi-fi connection to get some work done. This was perfect!

“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.”
