Extremely disappointed with this hotel. Website says free parking, but there is not enough parking for patrons. They do have underground parking but unless you have a small hatchback, don’t count on parking your Jeep Wrangler underground as it will be over the height limit. Please change your wording on the website to say “limited free parking”and indicate height restrictions for underground parking. Our room was on the second floor, right above the back door of the restaurant. We could hear all the conversations, yelling, and moving of crates and boxes from the restaurant. We had to call and ask the front desk to tell the restaurant workers to be mindful of the noise. The reaction from the front desk was that they were aware of this as they have to advise the restaurant personnel “all the time”. Why put someone in this room if this happens “all the time”! Complimentary coffee and tea was awesome, except it didn’t work. The coffee maker would only heat up about 1/8 of a cup of water. Our room had an outdoor “patio” feature. I opened the door to find a railing as wide as the door and the “patio” was about 8 inches wide. We did not understand this at all. Made no sense. The bathroom was clean. For the amount of money we paid for this room it wasn’t worth the frustration.

Stayed here with 2 kids for two nights. Hotel is ok, needs a lot of updates. Location was good, walking distance to all shops and restaurants. Service was just ok, staff didn't interact much, was talking on cell phones at front desk while working. Housekeeping only comes if requested and pre booked. Parking was included which was nice I would recommend it for a short stay in Banff.

We stayed for 2 nights. The location is ideal, just a few blocks from the main part of downtown Banff. The front desk staff were friendly and the room was clean. The bed wasn't particularly comfortable but it was ok for just a couple of nights. What made me rate them as only 3 was the WiFi. The first night we could "connect" but it said there was "no internet". In the morning I asked the front desk staff if there was a dead zone in our room, or perhaps there was an issue, and she didn't think there was but would follow up as she understood how frustrated we were. We briefly had a connection in the late afternoon, but it didn't last long and couldn't connect in the evening. Not having WiFi is a first world problem I realize, but it was frustrating not having it for our entire stay.

I stayed here after a long day of snowboarding and it was great. Rooms were nice and clean and the location is good. Walking distance to all the bars, shops and restaurants. I noticed they double their prices on weekend which is kind of lame but a good hotel none the less

We stayed at Irwin's for the second time since November. It's an older hotel, but has been renovated. It was very clean & comfortable. Our room had two beds, a sitting area, small fridge, coffee maker, microwave & bar sink. We were also able to use the hot tub, which was very relaxing. During this pandemic, you book a time to use the hot tub, and only the people from your room use it at that time. The facility is disinfected in between uses. We would recommend this hotel, as it appears to be locally owned. The staff are also very friendly & accommodating.
