Short walk to downtown

We booked this hotel a week before our honeymoon when our camping plans fell through. It's a 5-minute walk to downtown Banff (restaurants, shops, etc.), service is great, hot pool is great...but the rooms are just ordinary (and on the small side) and probably not worth the $200/night we paid for them. All that said, would stay here again if I could get a better rate.

Very nice hotel

I booked a Premium King with mountain view and was pleasantly surprised when I stepped into the room and looked like I got upgraded to a Premim Loft room! Very nice room, with fridge, microwave and an awesome view. Hotel is located near the north end of Banff Ave. A short walk (approx 10 min) to all the main action. But the hotel is very easly accessible to Highway 1 and the rest of the wonderful sites of Banff National Park. We didn't know about the natural hot springs hot pool so we didn't bring our bathing suits. Looked really ce though and will certainly look this hotel up again the next time we are in Banff!

Clean and Nice Suite

This place has really good decor. And well appointed suites. Although I cant say the same as their rooms. Which look out inside the complex rather than out on the street or the view. I upgraded to the after staying one night in the room on the ground floor. Suite and was quite nice with a great view.

Banff is great

standard room was well appointed but a little small for the money, other than that the Fox was great.

Cold building, warm staff.

Unusual building built around a massive open air hot tub sited in a central courtyard. All rooms open directly into what was at times - 36C snow filled air. We loved it, but perhaps not for everyone. Staff universally charming & helpful in a genuine way.

Hire car a real benefit - Banff skiing a different experience entirely when not reliant on local transport.

Great hotel, monotonous meal

We were long term (7 nite) guests. As a result, the breakfast, although having a variety of choices, the choices NEVER VARIED. Hence, after day 4,looking at strawberry yogurt and chopped fruit AGAIN, IT lost its breakfast appeal. Suggestion:at LEAST CHANGE FLAVORS of cereals and yogurt would have improved the experience..

Sightseeing in Banff National Park

The Fox Hotel is conveniently located to downtown Banff with only a two or three block walk to many very nice restaurants and shopping. The two bed room we stayed in was a bit cramped but we spent most of our time driving and hiking around Canmore, Lake Louise, and driving up the Ice Highway toward Jasper. The beds were comfortable and the spa was terrific. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the local attractions.The included breakfast was nicely done.

If you only have a couple days in the area, there are so many sights and places to visit, make a top ten list. You'll only get to the first 4 or 5 but if you hit the important ones, you'll have no regrets. Consider the helicopter tours for a unique view of the area.
