This is a great place to stay if you want to be out of the hustle bustle. The rooms are very nice and the staff extremely courteous and helpful. I would not recommend if walking hills and stairs are a problem.

Located just up the mountain from the center of Banff lies the Banff Centre. Artists from all over the world come here to study and perform. A lovely facility with a great theatre, good food, spacious accommodation, and a view of the Bow Valley.

There is a fitness centre and swimming pool at The Banff Centre. It is a very pleasant 15 - 20 minute walk into downtown.

If you are passing through the park you do not need a Park Pass. If you are passing through the park you may stop for gas etc. I have never seen a Park Pass Check within the town of Banff.
