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.

Decent room, booked a premium queen, bed felt more like a double. Felt overcharged for sure. Breakfast was alright, disappointed in comparison to the pictures online. Only ised vouchers once. Chose to go elsewhere remaining time.

My wife and I have been coming to The Aspen Lodge for many years. I can't count the number of times we've stayed. I do recall it was soon after they first finished the new hot tubs and saunas. Highly recommended and always enjoyable.
