For the price, did not think the hotel rooms were very nice. WI-Fi is great. Meeting facilities were okay, we had a snag with breakfast. Was not impressed by any of the meals at our meeting.

I stayed in the residence for a few nights during a work trip. The rooms are small and oddly layed out with the bed in the middle however the restaurants serve incredible food!

Saw Lake Minnewanka in part of a tour, and our guide was very informative. As we were there in March the lake was completely frozen and covered in snow, but it was still beautiful. It's used as a diving site too if anyone is interested.

I enjoyed my summer here immensely. It's a wonderful place to focus on improving your work with every amenity and opportunity to enjoy nature you could ask for. It's such a special case and i hope it remains available for artists to create and explore...More

If you are visiting Banff, the Centre is an interesting place to visit. Frequently there are shows and displays worth seeing. It is a relatively easy uphill walk from the Town.

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.
