Room was a little weird (unconventional room shape, eclectic furniture) but clean and great location. Hotel staff was nice and helpful. Only $10/day pet charge. I would stay there again for a good price!

Staff very friendly and hotel was spotless. The room was a great size for 3 adults with fantastic views of the Canadian Rockies from our room, located in the heart of Banff. Shopping and restaurants are conveniently within a few minutes walk.

Excellent friendly service at check in and out as well as any time you asked for help or guidance. The room was spacious and clean. Hotel is just a few minutes walk from downtown which is great for evening strolls and dinner. Only downside was very noisy AC. We tried sleeping without it one night but it was too hot

Nice, clean hotel with underground parking. Close to "downtown", but everything is within walking distance in Banff :). Dining is available at the attached restaurant. We only had breakfast; it was good. Overall a good place to stay.
