We just stayed in the Banff Caribou with our 11 yr old. Checkin was easy and quick, nice room amenities like soap and shampoo, clean room and hotel in general, underground free parking, Excellent wifi for streaming, staff are helpful and efficient.

A bit of a walk to shopping, but Banff is all about walking. Rooms are a bit small but manageable. We would definitely stay here again. It’s been a while since I’ve done a review, we really liked the experience here. Read less

We stayed for 3 nights before joining the rocky mountaineer, Good hotel with a good restaurant and pleasant staff. The hotel is well used and is showing signs of this. Overall a good experience and value for money.

They closed their parkade as they were part of some event, which meant that I ended up driving around Banff late at night for 45mins looking for a parking spot, which is a nightmare. When you pay that much for a room in Banff it should come with a guaranteed parking spot, and if not you should get a discount. Worst stay ever. I would not… Read more

When you pay that much for a room in Banff it should come with a guaranteed parking spot, and if not you should get a discount. Worst stay ever. I would not recommend this hotel if you are staying in Banff. They are not upfront about their parking situation at all. Read less

Stayed here for 3 nights and found the rooms to be very standard in terms of what you would get at an inn. Heating in the rooms can be improved - set thermostat to 78 and we were still chilly. The good: walking distance to downtown and a few decent restaurants close by.
