AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Classification): I like the modern mountain touches here but it's the feather toppers and soft sheets that keep me coming back for blissful sleep.
True to the theme of a mountain lodge, a huge fieldstone fireplace dominates the lobby of this lovely hotel. The appealing rooms are compact, but feature thick feather mattress toppers. Vivid artwork adds to the overall impression. A favorite spot to ease aching muscles from a day of hiking or skiing is the huge hot tub, which is in a lovely spa-like setting. Smoke free premises. 190 units. 4 stories, interior corridors.

Pros: The hotel staff was very attentive, and went above and beyond. Excellent customer service. They recognized us everytime we came through the lobby and were very friendly.
Cons: The staff at the Keg, especially the host stand were not very friendly. We would have eaten there everynight had the customer service been their, but after the first encounter, we won't go back to that Keg.

Pros: This hotel was beautiful. It was clean and everything was well kept and the staff was nice. It was very cozy and felt like we could be staying at our own cabin.
Cons: The only difficulty was that was had a rocket box on top of our car that we had to take off due to how short the parking garage was.

Pros: It was a charming Swiss-chalet type lodge with lots of character. The decor was unique, and seemed to really fit the surroundings in the beautiful town of Banff. The food in the on-site restaurant was great, too!
Cons: No
