The room designed is unique and the ambiance feels homey. The hotel location is perfect if you want to explore more of Banff Ave. There’s also IGA just walking distance from the hotel.
No microwave inside our room so we were unable to heat our food
I liked the underground parking as it was cold outside and I did not have to scrape ice off! Only good for vehicles less than 6 ft something.. I forget exact measurement but I had an SUV. Supermarket is very close.
ASKED FOR TWO QUEEN BEDS AND RECEIVED IT Washing machine in the car park was a great bonus. Position was perfect to access everything - buses, shops etc
We left our small change on the side table (collecting it for the washing machine) and the cleaning staff took it leaving a note saying 'thank you for the money'. If I was leaving a tip I'd leave a note for them to take it. Not a big issue as it was only change but I found it a little rude them thinking they could take it.
Great location...in the heart of town. Also the very friendly staff.
The beds were a bit creaky...and it would be nice to have TWO working elevators.
The location was perfect!! So close to the walking strip and a grocery store and all the shops and restaurants. The view of the mountains was spectacular. Underground parking was great. The staff was friendly and informative.
The price was raised up about 3 times the weekday price because it was the weekend. Lack of microwave in the rooms. Pretty thin walls.
