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.

We have stayed at many hotels in Banff and the Elk + Avenue seems to come out on top with regards to location, contemporary style of rooms and hotel areas. Having the Good Earth Coffee House & Ricky's restaurant and bar attached to the house is a bonus as well!

The wife and I came out for the weekend and were put up at the Elk and Avenue . At first glance , it was a very welcoming lobby , staff was nice. Rooms , not as much . The beds were incredibly soft , sagging in the middle and made for a horrible sleep . As the hotel was completely sold out there wasn’t much that could be done unfortunately.

Excellent stay at the property! Walking distance to shops, restaurants and bars. Nice and friendly staff. Good sized room.

Excellent stay at the property! Walking distance to shops, restaurants and bars. Nice and friendly staff. Good sized room. The extra space on the room could be utilized by adding some more furniture like a sofa in front of the TV. And also a variety of pillows (softer pillows) would be nice. We had a little problem sleeping because we are not used to firm pillows. Despite those small concerns, will still be definitely coming back and staying at this hotel again! Read less
