Great place! Only disappointment was there were no spots available in the hotels underground parking. So, we were forced to park on the street which is fine, but there were no spots for blocks.

This property is well located and quite nice in terms of decor and rooms. Unfortunately, we had some issues at check in. We had checked in earlier in the day and our rooms weren't ready, so they had suggested completing check in so we wouldn't have to do it later and would have faster access to our rooms and told us they would be ready in 1-2 hrs. We had requested 2 rooms close to each other and this was initially accommodated. However when we came back at 5:30pm, we found out they had given our rooms away and now one of our rooms was on the first floor and the second on the second floor and neither were ready!! They did adjust the rooms so we could be on the same floor however one had no towels when we showered in the morning and the other we found items not belonging to us under the bed. The Manager apologised for the confusion and said we could have drinks and appies on her and free parking so we thought that was a kind effort and asked if needed a voucher. She said no, to charge it to the room and never told us there was a limit. When we got our bills, 1 parking hadn't been redeemed and her idea of free drinks and applies for 4 people (2 per room) was $20 so that's all they deducted off the bill. It's a shame because it's a nice hotel and the bellman was exceptional but we felt very much like second class citizens that day. Hopefully it's a one-off and others won't experience any of this, but it will sway us to choose a different Banff resort next time.

We had one night booked in Banff and wanted it to be a special romantic date night. We specifically upgraded the room to include a fireplace. However, when we arrived, the attendant checked us in and then told us that we were actually staying at their sister hotel two blocks away. The hotel was definitely not as nice, the room was not comparable at all. It took a bit of prodding from the check in attendant to learn that the hotel was overbooked. It was a good thing we didn't have any dinner reservations as the whole ordeal took almost an hour to deal with before we were checked into our room. Also, the room we stayed in at the other hotel were located outside with no lights so we had to use our phone flashlight to even find and enter our room.
