We stayed at the Banff Centre in August. It is a beautiful peaceful place. Lots of things to do on the property - swim, relax, walk, workout - enjoy the surrounding natural area.

We didn't stay here, but we took advantage of the pool and the climbing wall because the outside air was so smoky from fires in BC, and we were looking for indoor activities. The pool wasn't great. The hot tub wasn't working, and half the...More

This is a wonderful gallery, unfortunately out of our price range but the staff didn’t seem to mind us just looking. The photographs are stunning especially the bears and the ruffled eagle. Very talented photographers with a good eye.

I've stayed here quite a number of times with large groups and while you can't beat the view and ambiance and the newly renovated rooms - the food has gone steeply downhill over the past years. There wasn't near the amount of selection, they ran...More

We stayed for two nights on a bus tour. The room was comfortable, although too warm most of the time so we had to open the window. The buffet breakfast was excellent with the dining area overlooking the mountains. The guest laundry was good but...More

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

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.
