Best location in Banff

Hotel is steps from all the restaurants and shops in Banff and with underground parking included it makes this hotel ideal, grocery store and beer and wine also available a short walk away
We stayed in room 346 which has a large window view of the street and mountains. The room included a fireplace, comfortable king sized bed, keurig coffee machine, fridge and separate shower and tub.

Fab hotel

We spent a few nights here and had a fab time. Breakfast was well organised and buffet style with eggs, sasusage, bacon, french toast etc. Bed was comfortable and the room was very clean and had a fridge, key rug and kettle. Parking is available onsite although if you’re in a taller vehicle you might prefer to use the outdoor parking lot instead of the indoor as the ceiling is very low indoors. Would definitely stay here again if in Banff.

Excellent hotel

This is an excellent hotel, located centrally on Banff Avenue. With the location it is a few minutes walking distance to many shops, restaurants and bars. The hotel is clean, modern, and comfortable with friendly staff.

Breakfast is included and is of a good quality. Not a lot of variation but still good if staying for a few days. The staff are very helpful and gave me information on ways to get around to certain places, hiring bikes etc.

Perfect for mom and dad + 1

Stayed here for 3 nights with our 4 month old and it was great. Close to downtown and the shops, restaurant onsite delicious, great breakfast buffet that was included. The room was clean and spacious. We had a room with a queen and a king and so we set the play pen up in the front half with the queen bed and we could still stay up and watch TV in the section with the king bed. Comfy bed and pillows. Will definitely stay here next trip to Banff

Great Stay

My wife and I just returned this week after spending 3 nights at this Inn.

The Inn exceeded our expectations from check-in to checkout. The rooms were good size and clean. The breakfast was included and filled us up each morning.

If your looking for an INN that is walking distance to downtown, this is the place to be. I recently torn the cartilage in my knee, so it was important to find a location close to downtown to limit my walking.

I highly recommend this location, great value.

Central Location

Stayed here 2 nights. Very nice and clean hotel. Spacious rooms with comfy king bed. They provide a good amount of locally made toiletries. The in house Italian restaurant was quite good.
We enjoyed the breakfast also. They have buffet style items and make omelettes to order.
If you want to stay right in town this hotel is centrally located. We parked the car there, walked to shops and other restaurants, and took a bus to lake Louise.

Great place to stay in Banff

Spent 5 days at The Banff Ptarmigan. What a wonderful hotel!! Had a balcony with a beautiful mountain view. The staff went out of their way to make our stay perfect…they always had a great recommendation for dinner, drinks or a daytime activity-)
The beauty products in the hotel (soaps, shampoos, lotions etc) are locally sourced from Banff – Rocky Mountain soap Co. and smell wonderful! I actually went down the block and purchased some of the lotions from the actual store on my trip after having used them at the hotel!
The daily hot breakfast (included with our stay) gave us the fuel to get out on the mountains each morning!

Good quality and comfort

I stayed there two nights during a weekend. Check in was fine and we got a Superior Room as booked. It was nicely arranged and size was very good. Bathroom was clean and new. No noises around and good quality of sleep. Breakfast was included and good quality between a choice. Parking was also included and this helped. I will recommend this to other people visiting Banff.
