Located on Banff Ave made it so easy to walk around, close to many restaurants and stores. Hotel rooms weren’t large but nicely appointed and comfortable and reasonably priced. Staff were great, parking onsite is first come first serve but there is overflow parking very close to the hotel. Nice rooftop patio setting with hot tubs overlooking the avenue and a nice bar area. Would definitely stay there again.

Linen was dirty and discoloured, the carpets in both the hallways and the room were stained.. One of the facecloths had a pubic hair in it. Understanding the square footage limitations due to the age of the building the layout of the rooms was very poorly designed making the room feel very claustrophobic. Initial check in experience was poor, the staff Member couldn't be bothered we were an incovienance by her having to get up from her seat

For us, the location was ideal. It was convenient to shopping, walking,eating and many of the tour pickup points. For early hour departures and awaiting transportation pickup, the convenience of a coffee or access to public washrm would be appreciated. The hotel staff were persoable and helpful.
