The impressive hand hewn logs that accent the building's exterior and lobby create the spectacular ambiance of this mountain lodge. The massive fieldstone fireplace that dominates the lobby invites you to relax in front of warm crackling flames. These 184 cozy mountain-style hotel rooms and 6 spectacular loft suites are located on Banff Avenue, a short walk to downtown Banff. Other features include The Keg Steakhouse & Bar, Red Earth Spa, 5-person jetted hot pool, steam room, exercise room, complimentary high-speed internet access in all guest rooms, heated underground parkade with free parking (first come basis) and complimentary Roam Bus passes for Banff's transit system.

Overview

The hotel just served as a place to sleep. It was no fun as I spent more time with friends in other hotels. The corridors were dirty and not presentable. There are better hotels in Banff

Central but quiet

Only a short walk to the downtown area. Enjoyed having 'The Keg' in the hotel. Had some great meals after busy days when we didn't feel like walking any more.

Beautiful Place

Beautiful hotel, just down the road from all the major shops and attractions, fantastic beds and decor, spotlessly clean rooms, safe and fridge in room, stunning large bathroom. The spa was a little difficult to find but was absolutely beautiful and accommodating. The hotel was fairly quiet, and the staff was very friendly. The underground parking was also a major perk. I would definitely stay here again.

The Magpie and Stump is around the corner from Banff Ave and has the best Mexican food I've had in Canada.

A nice stay in a good hotel, but...

Labour day weekend in Banff... lots of people around, more than usual. So trying to book for the weekend only a few weeks in advance we chose this hotel as they had a decent room deal. We did not have the poshest of room. Standard and roomy, two queen beds even though we only needed one. Nicer hotel than some of the older hotels downtown. We could not get a indoor parking spot on the first night as it was busy. We stayed here as it has a large hottub and spa. Used the pool 3x in 2 days. 'The Keg' resteraunt is always good for food but we did not eat there as we travel to Banff often and have eaten there before. Breakfast smelt good but we went to Melissa's Missteak a couple blocks away instead. The room we had was noisy at it was across from the elevator and there seemed to be a party in the hallway between 2:30am and 3:30am on the Saturday night. Sunday night was quiet.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Leave the car and take a walk through Banff Ave., past Bow falls on the river walk and up to the Banff Springs Hotel.
