Great property, only a block away from the main part of Banff ave. The room was one of the cleanest I’ve ever stayed in. Super friendly staff as well. Will make this my preferred hotel in Banff.

I spent 1 night and from the moment I drove into the underground parking, I was very impressed. The hotel is gorgeous, the staff are amazing, and the rooms are clean. My room had a balcony with beautiful views. It had storage lockers for our skis right off the underground parking, The rates were very reasonable as well! We walked 2 minutes down the road to an amazing restaurant and everything we needed was right there! I definitely will be staying here again next time I visit!!

Great location, quick walk to shops and restaurants on Banff Ave. Everything was clean and service was quick. The restaurant (“The Meatball”) was a surprisingly delicious and affordable spot for breakfast too.
