Room was acceptable and staff was very nice. However, there is no A/C in the rooms and the hotel requests you do not keep the windows open. If we had, it would have been too noisy to sleep well. The only coverlet on the bed...More

The differentiator is the hotel location on the edge of town. – right next to the river walks and only a couple of minutes’ walk from Banff Avenue. The room was clean and comfortable and I would have no hesitation in staying here again.

This hotel is right beside the river in Banff, making it convenient for a stroll. Rooms are average and you can share the pool with the Banff Park Lodge. Pleasant staff and clean rooms make it reasonable and convenient right in Banff town proper

Hello, Yes, we are slowly changing out the old TV's for flat screens. But not every room has been changed. you could always make a request for a room with an LCD TV, and we will do out best to accommodate. Thanks,
