      Rooms were clean and very modern, situated in a great location. There was plenty of parking that was easily accessible. Unfortunately our room made constant noises. At night we could hear the running of water as well as a loud clicking noise.

      Great location in downtown Banff, only a quick walk to shops and restaurants in town. One of the comfiest beds I’ve ever slept on. Definitely will be back next time I return to Canada!

      A basic hotel in an incredible location. Quilt on bed didn’t have a cover on it for the entirety of our stay which was odd. No fan in the bathroom which wasn’t ideal! Kind and helpful reception staff :) Teacups weren’t replaced or cleaned at all.
