Elk & Avenue

Banff, Alberta

The hotel

Elk + Avenue delivers on contemporary style, without sacrificing the mountain lodge feel those bound for Banff seek. Dressed with Rocky Mountain inspired details, rustic meets high-polish with rough cut timber, cosy seating, and the odd touch of faux fur. Its indulgences aren’t all decorative though, and alongside its downtown location, it gives you complimentary WiFi and parking, and a sauna and hot tub. At the forefront of Banff’s dining scene, Ricky’s All Day Grill is among the most popular in this ski-side town, with its big breakfasts and all-day diner classics drawing in hungry locals and travellers. It takes its après-ski seriously too, with the seasonal drink selections and twilight menu of RG’s Lounge best enjoyed around its toasty fireplace, in front of the plasma TVs, or on the patio watching the world pass by.

Our deluxe king room Was absolutely amazing panoramic views of the mountains, and downtown Banff. Too bad for Covid that restaurants weren’t open for dine in but we made due with patio beers and take out.

I didn’t catch his name at check in but he went over and beyond our request for a quiet room as we have a small baby. He was very understanding and upgraded us to a loft. My older son was so happy and we didn’t have to worry about our baby making noise either as we’re placed in such a quiet area. Thank you

We picked this hotel mainly because it is attached to Farm & Fire, which is one of our favourite places to eat in Banff, but it ended up being a great deal for the price.

We picked this hotel mainly because it is attached to Farm & Fire, which is one of our favourite places to eat in Banff, but it ended up being a great deal for the price. Since they are a part of the Banff Jasper Collection by Pursuit, we were able to bundle our gondola tickets and our hotel stay together for a fair price. The location is also great - steps from the grocery store and the main strip. I know that someone posted a review saying that they only give you 2 cups in the bathroom and 2 cups for coffee and they don't come and replace them. That amount of cups is standard for most hotels, and if that guest had read the pamphlet that was given at check-in, they would have known that they only replace items upon request due to COVID restrictions to reduce the amount of times someone has to enter the room. A reasonable request to ensure the guest safety. One night my 4 year old was getting antsy because we were couped up in the room, so I called the front desk and asked for colouring sheets from the restaurant. Matthew went above and beyond and printed her 10 new sheets, all with different images on them (the restaurant only had one kind!) She was so happy and I was super grateful. He also came with an extra pillow/blanket, fresh cups and towels (all you gotta do is ask, people!) Would definitely stay here again. Hopefully when the hot tub can be open to the public. Read less
