When my wife told me she'd booked this hotel on the main drag in Banff, I was dreading it would be like our last stay on Banff Avenue(see my sleep-deprived review "Bring Your Own Mattress") where because of the prime location, they don't have to care about incidental things such as guests' sleep.
But the Banff International Hotel was different & all-around super!
Every single staff member greeted us, and one- I didn't get her name- took the time to explain their $5 per day ice skate rentals for the schoolyard rink kitty corner from the hotel although she was busy covering for someone on a room service run.
The room and beds were excellent, and the housekeeping staff were meticulous each of our three-day stay. It's clear they have backed up the no-smoking expectation at this hotel, because the whole floor was sweet-smelling, along with the rest of the property.
I can't find anything important to critique!
If you forced me to say something negative, I could only say the hotel logo is dumb.
