We were greeted when we arrived. The front desk clerk was very helpful and friendly. She remembered hours later when we came back tot the room that we had asked for more coffee and had it in her hand when we walked back in.

Great View & Good Value

I am so glad we got this room with view on the top floor. It was by default as the place was about to sell out for that date. But it was well-worth extra 20-30 bucks or so to stay there with a beautiful view of Bow River and mountains. You should request the "corner room facing the river on the third floor"! The services were good as well. Kate at the reception desk was awesome (fun and friendly😊) and the techs who came to fix our TV were so nice as well. Have I mentioned the location? It was situated at the GREAT spot in downtown Banff. We walked everywhere yet it was nice and quiet around the hotel. Highly recommendeded.

Great location!

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Great location along the Bow River, which makes morning or evening walks along the river very convenient. Also within walking distance to restaurants and grocery. Rooms are on the older side, but good value for location.

Great location for the price

Pros: Close restaurants
An average hotel with a good location. Only a 5 minute walk to the resturants and bars. No pool but you do get access to the pool at their sister property that is right next door.When it is in the middle of winter the short walk is not that great but is rewarding after a busy day of snowboarding/sking. For the price this hotel was everything we expected and more.
