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: 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

Pros: Nothing was to really like it was over priced for what it was.
Cons: The beds are horrible, old and worn out. Plus first night there go to pull back the blankets on both of the beds body hair all over the sheets and pillows. Garbage weren't emptied so I'm guessing they didn't clean the room or change the bedding
