Great location. Freindly staff.
Lovely bathroom Great location
Modern Style of rooms and underground parking
No AC, room was too warm
Room was clean and spacious, bed was comfortable. Good value for money. Excellent location and complimentary parking.
We were in a room facing the lobby lounge and it was loud. Lots of foot traffic in the morning, screaming children etc.
Fair accommodations. Nothing special. Some staff a
Staff. Basic room, no bathroom fan, poor views.
The restaurant in the lobby - "Ricky's" - is average at best. It's not the type of restaurant you would want international visitors to get an impression of Canadian food. A nice independently owned restaurant showcasing Canadian recipes and produce would be a much better option.
- great location: The hotel is right on Banff ave. It is within easy walking distance of shopping and restaurants.
- Busy hotel: Brewster tours run out of the lobby. If your room faces the front of the hotel it can be loud. - Lack of A/C can make the rooms hot in the summer.
