Overview

Spacious rooms, friendly staff and tasty restaurant
Recent guests mentioned spotty Wi-Fi service
Previous visitors especially commend this hotel's prime location in central Banff, close to the restaurants and entertainment that the small ski town has to offer. But even with all the tempting options outside the hotel, guests still find reasons to stay on site. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with minifridges and queen- or king-sized beds and the premier, deluxe and executive suites even come with a gas fireplace; however, some recent guests mentioned spotty Wi-Fi service. And while Banff is filled with plenty of fine dining options, visitors often opt to eat at the Evergreen Restaurant, which serves up tasty dishes prepared with local and sustainable ingredients. The Grotto Spa and its mineral pool also receive rave reviews for their relaxing ambiance.
