Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your experience in regards to your recent stay. We do take great pride in the upkeep of our hotel, and I am very disappointed to hear your stay was less than you expected. Please be assured that our staff is working every day to keep the property looking clean and uplifted. Just recently, we have completely repainted our lobby and first floor hall way, and are now moving on to the other floors and guest rooms. Our breakfast selection is actually much larger than most continental breakfasts in the industry at our rates. Our breakfast includes: waffles, three different cereals, pastries, hard boiled eggs, toast, fruit, yogurt, muffins, oatmeal, coffee, juice & milk.

Once again I do apologize if you found your accommodations less than satisfactory and we would love to make it up to you if you do decide to give us a second chance! Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss your concerns further.

Thank you!

Unfortunately there are downsides as well. The main one is that this is not a new hotel. It is way past the point where it is shiny and new. It is in need of an updating. Our experience was great at this hotel, and the rooms and public spaces seemed well maintained and clean, but the overall impression that you get from the hotel is that it is worn out. The pool is outdoors and was still "closed for the season" in late May. The area where the free breakfast is served is very cramped. All the rooms are air conditioned, but the air conditioners are window style air conditioners mounted in the wall which are quite noisy and lead to difficulty sleeping for light sleepers.
That said the hotel staff were very friendly and attentive and we enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Get a room on the back. Banff Trail can be noisy and does have the trains going by and a lot of noi...
