    Great room with friendly staff at the hotel. Couldn’t get the room temperature cool enough to sleep comfortably and night even with the thermostat cranked all the way down.

    Value for price

    It’s was overall a good. The location is excellent but the building is old and hence the rooms are outdated. Hotel staff is excellent and helpful. The room was clustered with unnecessary furniture especially when the rooms are small and does not have much space. Cleanliness is ok considering old room. There was fridge, tv and coffee maker. Microwave and boiler will be available if you ask for it. Parking was underground heated and very convenient. The only think which bothered us was the smell of pot in the hallway. May be some unreasonable guests.

    Great location and river view room worth it!

    Great location!!! And if you like a view - the river view rooms are well worth the slightly higher price, you look right at the Bow River and can even have wild animals wander right by. Beautiful. Rooms are always clean (been many times) but nothing fancy and beds a bit on the hard side. Still the location over looking the river and yet two blocks from the heart of Banff is amazing!!

    Great location, downtown on the river. Old style hotel with narrow hallways. Very clean, nice bedding. Extra firm bed. Staff was wonderful, very helpful. Underground parking was provided at the neighbouring sister hotel.
