This was my first stay at Banff Park Lodge (BPL) and Conference Centre, the host hotel for a business event. The Lodge is well matched to the locale; one sees and feels the iconic mountain spirit at every turn. While the rooms are a bit dated, they are clean, spacious and comfortable. Having a balcony with a wide door was a big plus; fresh mountain air is so much nicer than the sealed and stale air systems common to most modern hotels.
Most of my meals during the week were catered by the hotel and all I can say is "tasty and plentiful", no risk of going hungry here! The people at reception and the concierge desk were friendly and immediately responsive to my requests.
I did find my room too dark for reading and working. I requested an extra lamp, which was delivered quickly and cheerfully, but the room could have been a bit better equipped for the business traveler.
Location is very convenient, an easy walk to the commercial district and close to the river and some nice walking trails.
Overall, BPL is a nice facility with good food and helpful staff. Of course, you can’t beat the backdrop.
