Stayed in Banff for two nights while my son played in a hockey tournament. The Front Desk staff were extremely friendly and helpful! The location was great - we could walk pretty much everywhere when we weren't at the rink :) The furnishings were a bit too modern for my taste, but the room was spacious and comfortable for family...

Front desk was very welcoming and the people were all very nice. The rooms are very modern, clean and large, with ample amounts of space and modern design furniture. We ate breakfast at Ricky's which had great, numerous choices and excellent service.

We stayed at the Elk + Avenue recently for a one-night trip to Banff. It is very close to the main streets and shops that you can wear whatever shoes you want and still be comfortable, no need for taxis for buses. The hotel is obviously recently renovated, the decor is very modern, loved it. The room was on the...

I had a fantastic king room in the turret overlooking the mountains. The only issue was it was very noisy between the tour buses, screaming party people, and the beeping from the snow clearing in a nearby parking lot. So, if you are sensitive and there on a Saturday night, bring ear plugs. But I loved the room and the...

I recently stayed at the Elk & Avenue the end of March 2017. The entire hotel has been recently updated with a modern, contemporary feel to it. The staff is welcoming and friendly and you definitely can't beat the location being only a block from Downtown Banff's many restaurants and shops. Each room is quite contemporary and has ironing board,...

Very comfortable and modern room. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Very close to all shops, cafes and restaurants. Having the tour booking office in the foyer made it very easy to select and book our tours. The young lady was very helpful when helping us to decide what to see in the area.

Nice renovation. I would definitely go there again. Didn't know they charged extra at the end (about $10/night) for environmental fees and taxes. I would prefer to know those charges up front. Seemed odd to be charged $2/night for them to donate it to the Banff Improvement fund.

First time out of New Zealand and the staff at Elk + Avenue where so welcoming and made things a lot less stressful, they also made me feel like I was kind of at home in a way. If I travel to Banff again they will be the first people I call.
