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.

Clean comfy room. Front desk staff were excellent, very helpful and knowledgeable. Central location a big plus, ski buses and local buses leave from out the front. Good little coffee shop attached to the front of the hotel. Would definitely stay again

A very satisfying experience. Helpful, efficient and friendly staff prepared to go the extra yard when needed. Breakfast menu (buffet) was plentiful and included lots of variety. They are renovating their restaurant and when this is finished in spring their offer will be complete.

The room was clean and comfortable but you can see that it is just an upgraded older hotel. They had heated underground parking with a low ceiling but it is alright for cars and smaller vehicles. The staff were really good and helpful and we had a Nespresso machine in the room.

Great location and a modern refurbished hotel. Our third time stay here and we had upgraded to a deluxe king with mountain views & had actually requested a particular room. However, we were not allocated this room but the other couple with us were ! Our allocated room was not as good and I had to go to reception who moved us to a room with better views. Good catch but should not have needed this. Anyhow, all in all, well-recommended and we will be staying here again. Read less

Couldn't have picked a better location. The hotel is located right after the shopping ends on the main street, so it's the first hotel in the strip of hotels. Closest to the bars, restaurants, and stores. Rooms were modern and staff were friendly!
