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.

The staff could've done better with resolving this issue, no manager or supervisor on site on Sunday morning to assist. They did follow up with us to make sure we are satisfied, but the no sleeping thing really put a sour note on our first year anniversary trip! Read less

We were upgraded to a corner room with windows on two sides with beautiful views of the mountains. I appreciated the free basement parking. The location is excellent being in the centre within walking to the river and many POI.

Situated on the main street right on the edge of Downtown Banff and close to the Tourist Information Office. This is a quite large hotel with large comfortable rooms. Helpfully it is situated right across the road from the main Bus hub whilst the free shuttle to the Banff Gondola stops right outside.Staff are friendly and helpful.

Not at all as expected. Location was awesome but housekeeping not very attentive, walls paper thin and felt for the price it would be much more than it actually is. Check in and out was easy. Staff at front desk helpful.

Location is outstanding but beds aren’t! AC and sink also make strange noises every 15-20 minutes. More help needed in Gift shop-has to stand in line for 20 minutes to pay for T-shirt while people scheduled gondola rides and dinners with the clerk!!
