Banff Aspen Lodge

Banff, Alberta

The hotel

They may call themselves a ‘base camp’, but that’s definitely only in spirit — not in style. Thanks to its location, Banff Aspen Lodge is favoured by those wanting to pitch up and experience all the attractions of this popular ski and spa town, from its snow sports to its famous hot springs. But its style is far from ‘base camp’. Smart and swanky, its rustic-meets-chic décor is matched by a series of extra touches that make an ‘outdoorsy’ holiday uncharacteristically comfortable, like complimentary WiFi, ski and bike storage, the coffee and cake-stocked Whitebark Café, and a steam room and sauna for soothing adventure-weary muscles. You can start your day filling up at the complimentary breakfast buffet, with its local bacon and sausages and home-baked treats. And you can end it in an outdoor hot tub with a crackling fireplace.

Stayed here with family and the room was very good. Balcony with view of mountains and even deer right below us. Parking was easy. Enjoyed the hot tub area and used the laundry facility while there. Cafe and sitting room in lobby was really nice, and sit down breakfast was great.

This hotel is very well run. It had attention to detail not seen in the other hotel we stayed in in Banff. There was a fridge a clothes line and also a dressing gown for use in our room. The location is very good within walking distance if the town. I would recommend this hotel.

The location of this lodge was very convenient and close to the centre of the township. The parking was very convenient, and the room was clean and modern. The spa with the fire next to it was great - we really enjoyed it.

A warm welcome after a long drive and free parking an asset. I feel that a lounge bar would be an advantage, as would a dining room. The breakfast was complimentary which is a nice saving on the pocket, but I would have paid a small fee to have a choice of fried eggs. Access is good and with just ground and upper floor there are no issues for… Read more
