Great location, comfortable, good beds, quiet. Staff were very pleasant. Good coffee shop and good full serve restaurant on site. Coffee shop open early enough for ambitious skiers to get an early breakfast.

We've stayed here in the pat and were quite happy with the walkable nature. Unfortunately this room was not what we've come to expect from Elk and Avenue - dust bunnies on the fan, chunk of exposed wood on the bathroom door, and a shower door that wouldn't stay shut! I'm hoping it was a one time thing, as the staff is great, but we might consider alternatives next time!

The Elk & Avenue was a really great hotel for our family trip. There was plenty of room for our kids to run around, and we always appreciate having a table for them to sit down and snack at (rather than having crumbs in our bed the whole trip). The staff were very friendly, especially at the restaurant. The one thing I wish I could change is the parking - our Jeep Grande Cherokee was a bit too tall for the underground parking and the other parking was outdoors and not the best walk to do alone at night. That said, I appreciated that they had a parking option as not all Banff hotels do. Overall it was a great experience and a great location, and I would recommend it!

This hotel is the closest to all the main strip shops & restaurants. It's extremely nice, the room was big and the beds were very comfortable. Having walk in access to the Good Earth Coffeehouse was a huge plus too.

We travelled with our pups so needed a pet friendly room. Our booking was mistakenly only for one night but should have been two. The manager and team quickly found us another room so we didn’t have switch rooms in the morning!
