5 out of 5

We stayed on one Of the busiest weekends

Pros: The beds! And the shower
Cons: Nothing it was great
Location: Everything starts across the street.. perfect location
The front staff was super friendly and were always helpful. The rooms are modernized and clean. Lots of fluffy pillows and the beds are really nice to sleep on. There is good earth in the same hotel so great coffee is only a elevator away. It is literally on the corner and all the shops are just across the street. We could not hear any outside noise 8n our room There is under ground heated parking. We will stay here again when in Banff.
