Our room was a basic, no frills, motel style room. The previous night we stayed 25 minutes away from Banff at an Econolodge in Canmore, the room at Econo was far superior to the Banff Park Lodge. Other negatives are $9.50 per night for parking and no free WIFI. If a location in downtown Banff is a requirement, this is the place to be, everything is within a 5-10 minute walk. Overall, would not stay again, but would rather stay in Canmore or another hotel in Banff. To be honest I did not comparison shop, but I would guess that this hotel is overpriced.

While on a tour of the Canadian Rockies our tour stayed here for three nights. I would highly recommend this lodge because of its close location to eateries one right across the street and others within a five minute walk which include every type of food one might want. There are many great shops along Banff Ave and Bear Ave two blocks away. The lodge is located on the Bow River with its walking path. Tunnel mountain (15-20 minute walk from Lodge)at one end of town offers a great view of the town and Bow Valley and the surrounding mts. I climbed the mountain which was easy with its walking trail, well worth the view along the way and at the top.
The lodge itself had very comfortable room with balcony, bath, swimming pool, steam room, excellent restaurant and bar with a view of the Bow river and surrounding mts. On the ground floor of the lodge are many interesting shops.

Room Tip: Upper floor town -mountain view.

stayed here for a couple of nights using their ski and stay package including the transportation and lift passes to the Sunshine Resort.

this hotel is a little dated in its decor but to be honest given that most of the people trekking through its doors had been skiers I guess its hard to keep it balanced.

we had the unfortunate situation where a geo-physicsal conference had taken up the lower priced room, so we had a mix n match ending up in deluxe rooms on our second nigth with ensuite jacuzzis - right next to the bed !

the staff were all very very friendly and helpful and the hotel has a mix of foreign staff ( one form my home country which was excellent) all wiling to advise on the best skiing, best slopes etc.

ski hire is but a street away and the hotel gave us discount cards for there too. the hotel provide a shack for holding these during season but beware it is not heated, take your boots to your rooms.

the hotel is situated just off down town Banff and everything is in walk able distance.

you must take in the river Bow behind the hotel, there is a walk that goes alongside it up to the rail tracks and its the greenest river I have ever seen

Room Tip: the bus to sunshine resort stops right outside ski hire is but a stones throw away its simply very...

The Banff Park Lodge is centrally located in Banff, within easy walking distance to the towns attractions, shopping and restaurants. The hotel was very nice with great rooms and underground parking. The hotel is fully equipped with bar and restaurant. I didn't experience all the facilities but those I used were outstanding. The international staff was very friendly and helpful. All in all a great place to stay.

Spent a week here in early May for a training course and had a fantastic stay. I had a room with a king bed and the room was spacious and comfortably appointed. The PBL is just a couple of blocks off the main street in Banff so walking distance to all shopping and dining. The food was fantastic and the staff friendly and very service oriented. a very enjoyable stay.

A wonderful stop after a day of sightseeing. The staff was helpful and friendly and the room was spotless. We enjoyed a relaxing supper in the restaurant then a soak in the hot tub. I recommend this hotel. It's the best.

We like to travel to Banff on the off season , spring or fall. We found the Banff Park Lodge quite by accident as our usual place was full! That was a blessing, the staff are all very good at their jobs. Very friendly and knowledgable about the surrounding area and restaurants! This hotel is clean, clean, clean. So hats off to the management! We stay there at least once or twice a year. Location is really good as you are close to everything and it's all within walking distance! Great place for a bite to eat and a nightcap too! We just don't go to Banff if can't get a room here!

Room Tip: Try to get a room near the end of the hallways, it's a bit quieter away from the elevator! We l...
