Located just up the mountain from the center of Banff lies the Banff Centre. Artists from all over the world come here to study and perform. A lovely facility with a great theatre, good food, spacious accommodation, and a view of the Bow Valley.

We were there for 3 days of meetings. The meeting rooms were stunning with a brilliant view of the mountains, beats being in a hotel basement with no windows. The technicians that took care of our audio visual needs were pros, and managed to correct...More

Always something going on. Sign up online to get notices of events to plan your visit around. Parking can be an issue.

Been on a company event with 80+ attendees. Great venue with everything you need to have countless breakouts. Catering could use a little more variety, but everything was tasty and you won't starve. Nice little bar and two restaurants on the campus. 20 min walkway...More

Hi, I will be accompanying my wife to a convention there in May, might be there for several days, Will we have access to the fitness room and is there a steam/sauna room there? Also how far is it to walk into town to do a bit of shopping? Thank you

There is a fitness centre and swimming pool at The Banff Centre. It is a very pleasant 15 - 20 minute walk into downtown.

Do you need to buy a park registration to go into town? We will be passing through and wanted to go into town for dinner.

If you are passing through the park you do not need a Park Pass. If you are passing through the park you may stop for gas etc. I have never seen a Park Pass Check within the town of Banff.
