“Great first night in Canada”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

We had two nights booked, but unfortunately Air Canada cancelled our flight and we only managed the one night which was a great shame. The staff were very welcoming and the room was lovely. We had a room over looking the courtyard which was fine, there was enough blinds at the windows to create enough privacy.

It was lovely to have breakfast in the morning included with the room, not the best but I did enjoy making my own waffle!

We had a drink in the bar and very much enjoyed talking to the waiter.

The walk downtown was just perfect after sitting on a long flight.

The reception staff were very helpful when we needed to contact our next day excursion and helping with times etc.

Thank you for making us feel very welcome.

Stayed in loft suite 2 beds with living room on top and bedroom on basement. Location on Main Street. 10 minutes walk to city centre so a quiet hotel . Hot pools available . Friendly staff
Room rather small for 4 people . Chillies restaurant next to the hotel . Free parking (limited could get difficult) . Heard mixed reviews that hotel could be too noisy , but I did not find it at all even we stayed on weekends

Room Tip: Ask room away from centre court if you want quieter room

This is a lovely hotel. Room felt small at first but was fine. Reception staff very helpful. We had trouble phoning to get a pick up time for a trip and the lady on reception just picked up the phone and organised it for us. Nice getting a complementary breakfast.
It is only a short walk into town. Much closer than we thought.
Would have rated this hotel as excellent but our sleep was severely disrupted by a party of youngsters returning to their rooms early Sunday morning and shouting to each other!!

We were greeted by a wonderful staff. This place is spotless clean. The hot tub area was really different, in a good way. Sauna was great at the end of the day on the trails. Nice views as well.

We had issues with another hotel, the staff at Fox's stepped up and turned in bad day into a wonderful stay. I will recommend this place to everyone.

Try Bison for dinner. Great food and service.

Love the theme of this reasonably priced (for Banff) hotel. We arrived on my birthday and before we could get to the room there was a note and complimentary bottle of wine....very nice touch!
Room was clean and comfortable however no a/c (there was a fan in the room but some might be put off by that). Chilis restaurant was part of the hotel and the food was good, located within walking distance of downtown and is a nice walk. Downstairs parking garage was nice as parking is at a premium here. Would recommend and will stay here again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay. We had a king suite loft room with a balcony on the 4th floor facing the mountains. Check-in was efficient, parking is underneath the hotel with lift access to the rooms. The room was spotlessly clean and air conditioned, the bed comfortable, a small kitchette area with a table and chairs a microwave, fridge and coffee maker etc . The hotel is situated on the outskirts of the main town making it a quieter area, a 10 minute stroll takes you into the main town. Good location to access to all the sights that Banff has to offer. Breakfast was buffet style with toast, fruits and pastries and a waffle making machine. Juices and coffee were also in plentiful supply. The under ground grotto was a great place to relax tired legs after a day on the trails. There is also a very reasonably priced self service laundrette with washing machines and dryers. The staff were all very friendly and made our stay effortless and enjoyable. We would definitely return.

Room Tip: The King Loft Suite on the 4th floor was a large double storey room with balcony and good views of t...

This hotel is newer and has a cool layout, the bedroom overlooks the living room. The A/C works great but it still gets warm upstairs. TV didn't work our whole stay...just static, but we were here more for the outside view.
It's also got a man made grotto which looks pretty cool, but it's just a packed little dipping pool.
But I do have to admit....I got the best sleep in a long time...thanks

Room Tip: Not too many great views from the hotel...but your only going to be in your room to sleep..lol
