We stayed in room 1110 which was further up the hill behind the main check-in lodge and faced the valley across the way, on the second floor. The room was smaller than I thought for 2 queen beds, but overall cute, cozy, and relatively clean. I would recommend a second floor room, since the first floor ones looked like they opened up to a shabby little porch. The renovated bathroom was almost too big and contained an impossibly narrow stand-up corner shower. Overall, there wasn't enough lighting and felt dim throughout. Note that there is no air conditioning in any of the accomodations in the National Parks, but did come with a portable fan. You almost definitely have to drive to get into downtown (steepish hill that is mostly dark). Staff were accommodating and courteous.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Buffalo Mountain Lodge is a peaceful retreat on Tunnel Mountain in Banff, AB. The lodge is surrounded by 9 acres of towering fir, pine, and spruce trees, yet just a 15 minute walk or 3 minute drive from the shopping, nightlife and restaurants that are on offer in downtown Banff. A favourite visitor pastime is to observe the deer and elk who frequently nibble on the lawn, right outside the lodge's windows. The lodge has 108 guest rooms, an outdoor hot tub, and several options for dining, making it the ideal location for a weekend getaway, wedding, or corporate retreat. Buffalo Mountain Lodge is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts' family of companies. Rooms at the lodge have fieldstone wood-burning fireplaces, cozy duvets, LCD televisions and Blu-ray players. Many feature patios or balconies. Each room has been carefully decorated to reflect the mountain lifestyle in Banff-the accommodation is anything but 'cookie cutter.' The outdoor stainless steel hot tub is best enjoyed after an invigorating hike, bike or ski on one of the nearby trails-or perhaps to aid digestion after a sumptuous meal in the lodge's highly acclaimed restaurant, Sleeping Buffalo. ... more less
