10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Lovely bathroom Great location
8.0 Very good
Pros:Modern Style of rooms and underground parking
Cons:No AC, room was too warm
8.0 Very good
Pros:Room was clean and spacious, bed was comfortable. Good value for money. Excellent location and complimentary parking.
Cons:We were in a room facing the lobby lounge and it was loud. Lots of foot traffic in the morning, screaming children etc.
5.7 Fair
Cons:Staff. Basic room, no bathroom fan, poor views.
6.8 Okay
Cons: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.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:- great location: The hotel is right on Banff ave. It is within easy walking distance of shopping and restaurants.
Cons:- 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.
