Nothing to like. Old noisy building. People walking upstairs mailing noise like an elephants. Too much noise coming from the street. People making too much noise on the street late evening and late night. Very noisy AC. In general charging too much and you paying not for hotel and services it offers but for Banff itself. Very disappointed. Next time going to be more careful choosing hotels in Banff.

The location itself is good, still pretty near dt Banff, but not as close so it’s quiet. The staff were nice and the room is ok. The wifi couldn’t connect properly, so that was not ideal. You can tell the hotel is a bit dated, from the hall ways and storage area. Overall, during my time of stay, with similar price paid, there are better options.

Shower curtains and bed sheets were dirty. We reserved a dog friendly room and we were told that water & food bowls, a blanket or bed, and disposable bags would be provided upon arrival but we didn’t get anything. Really loud, couldn’t sleep.
