A bit disappointed with the service

Would recommend Tue, Aug 12, 2014
The hotel is nice, ~20 min walk from downtown Banff, which is ok. The room was very comfortable and underground parking was a nice bonus. My only complaint is that we asked for a crib, I specifically emailed a few days before arrival, saying I'll be arriving late (~3am) with a baby, and ask for the crib to be ready in the room so she can go straight to sleep. When I checked in, I asked: the crib is in the room right? and the person said yes, I can see you asked for it, I can see you sent an email, all is good... Of course, as I enter the room, there was no crib there... And this is a family resort... So had to keep the unhappy baby for 10 minutes before they went to find the crib, and then get me sheets for it etc... Which was a bit annoying. Otherwise it's a nice place, a bit closer to town would have been nice.

Nice studio

Would recommend Wed, Jul 9, 2014
Nice accommodations with a fridge and microwave. Reasonable but not great value given we've stayed there on the weekend of July 1-4 and reserved a couple of days ahead. A little far from the center of town, but not a problem during the summer.

Lovely family weekend

Would recommend Mon, Dec 2, 2013
The hotel is dated by cozy and we enjoyed evenings around the blazing fireplace. Would have enjoyed a coffee shop or dining room however the trip down the hill to restaurants in Banff is short. On the other hand, the kids enjoyed the water slides and play zone immensely. Lots of wildlife nearby, including a buck elk grazing next to the lodge. Staff was very helpful and polite. All, including the kids, certainly felt welcome.

Dining

Treat yourself to brunch at the Banff Springs Hotel. Expensive but worth the experience.

Great Place for Kids

Would recommend Fri, Mar 29, 2013
We love this place although it has good and bad points. The pros...the staff is friendly and triendly and tries their best to accomodate you. The playzone is a blast and the pool and waterslides are lots of fun. The cons: They don't clean the room daily nor do they make your bed...I mean, that's the fun of staying in a hotel (having your bed made for you). Also the place is kinda dingy, it doesn't have a new clean feel and the waterslide water is a bit cool. All in all those are minor things and we would stay there again.

A fun family vacation getaway

Would recommend Wed, Jun 30, 2010
We had a really fun time. It had two waterslides, two jacuzzis, kiddie pool and regular pool. The rooms were nice and had many amenities.The kitchens were fully equipped and you could cook your meals including barbecueing if you wanted to.

Dining

Eat at Bumpers. It had a super salad bar. The prime rib and pork ribs combo was great. It came with cooked carrots, a choice of baked potato with the trimmings, rice or french fries. The chocolate cake was too much for three of us to finish. It was fantastic, especially the frosting.

GREAT!!

Would recommend Sun, Feb 21, 2010
The Douglas Fir is very close to the downtown of Banff. You can walk or take the free bus that picks you up directly in front of the resort. My partner and I enjoyed a great day of skiing, a nice night out at a Greek restaurant, and a great couples massage. The room had a big balcony and an even bigger television!! It was quiet at night and it was overall a fantastic time!!

Balkan Restaurant on Tuesday or Thursday has belly dancing and plate smashing!!

Too expensive for the type of facility

Would not recommend Wed, Sep 9, 2009
The staff was friendly and helpful. However, the units were dark, dreary and small. It was much more rustic than described. There were many steps with no rails. It was not worth $127 a night. I would not go there again. It was a very disappointing place to stay.

Awesome Family Getaway!!!

Would recommend Mon, Jul 20, 2009
The room was clean, quiet and very accomodating for a family of four. The children loved the waterpark and it was great to have a little store on site. Very well maintained and the staff was awesome! Will recommend this resort and will be returning! We vacation in Banff at least once a year!

Attractions

Johnston Canyon......short drive from Banff on highway 1 A!! Amazing and worth the trip!

Ideal facility

Would recommend Fri, Jun 26, 2009
We felt the hotel was ideal. The location just outside of the crowded Banff town center was perfect. Your room key shown to the bus driver is good for free travel throughout the entire Banff area. The water slide is great for young and old alike. The desk clerk was very helpful with suggestions for hikes, gas, groceries and getting around.
