    Our Easter family getaway

    We absolutely loved the hotel. Staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. The Grotto hot pool was awesome. The bed was a little too firm and the parkade is one of the lower heights but the street parking worked best for us. They gave us transit passes to use and there are plenty of shuttles that stop out front. Would recommend to anyone looking at staying in Banff. Will definitely book here again.

    Would stay again, the hot tub is amazing with an open top for the cool breeze to come in. Bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet. Parking is very tight though, more for cars and small crossovers. Breakfast was ok, wouldn't pay for it though.

    Only Stay for the Hot Tub

    Very small room even with only two people. Wouldn’t stay here with four. The beds are very small. Extremely lumpy and uncomfortable pillows. Socket instead of switch for fan in bathroom. Breakfast buffet is not good. Not a ton of options especially if you don’t want bread or waffles. They should include hash browns or bacon at least! No housecoats or slippers to go to the hot tub which you have to walk outside to get to so they should provide something other than just towels. Wifi isn’t the best. Super outdated tv with basic cable. Should upgrade to smart tv. Hot room with no way to cool it down since the temperature said heat only. Can hear room attached through joining door very well. Zero view. Window legit viewed a rock wall. Stay for the hot tub if you know you’ll have time to go in it and otherwise you’ll find much better options for a room elsewhere. Ones with a view for a more reasonable price! Overpriced for the room itself. Staff was all lovely.

    Spa pool was amazing!

    The spa pool was amazing! Hotel was ok. Lots of stairs especially if your on the top floor. A bit of a wait for the elevator. Includes parking which is a plus. Would suggest getting first floor. About 15 minute walk from downtown and shopping. Complimentary breakfast….meh…waffles, cereal, toast, pastries. We would prefer being closer to downtown but overall it was ok.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The lighting is very low and old tv is old , even the angle of tv is not infront of tv multiple rooms are connected small washroom with small standing tub shower. Mattress is very uncomfortable. Totally opposite of whats shown in images . On hotel website its shown bigger pool but there is only one small hot pool which is very small for the amount of guests they have. The breakfast is not so good the servers at restaurant are very good . Even the front desk is not very helpful. I been travelling almost 12 years but first time i felt very uncomfortable and disappointing stay. I wasn’t happy at all . After checking in I went outside to look another hotels but unfortunately nothing was available that night.

    Not impressed with lack of fridge and Keurig in the room. Breakfast was gross, both the breakfast included in room stay and purchased breakfast from Chili's. We checked in after 8:30pm and were not informed by reception that we needed to request housekeeping by 8pm if we wanted it. I did not notice this on the pamphlet until the following morning. The cost of the room should have included housekeeping.
