Our room was right by the front desk, it had a master bedroom & couch on the lower level & 2 rooms with 2 single beds in each room on the upper level. There was also a full kitchen and fireplace. Our cable in our room did not work- usually not a big deal but we were there during playoffs...

I visited here a few weeks ago , I really enjoyed my stay here . The chalet itself was a little worn but very clean and everything you need was there for self catering . The huge open fire was amazing when looking out at the snow capped mountains , our chalet had a double bedroom down stairs and we...

I was in Banff for a conference and was looking for accommodations that was close to this very expensive hotel where the conference was held at. The two key things I was looking for was a place that was clean and reasonably priced for Banff. Douglas fir met both expectations easily. They provide people with passes for the local bus...

Went for a girls trip to Banff, overnight! This resort is old and falling apart, not even sure how they can still be open! Very strict on check in and very strict on rules! All about them and they could quite literally care less about the customer! Won't be back for sure!

This is a good Banff family hotel however it is in need of a serious renovation. Water slides and Playzone are great place to for kids to have fun and burn off some energy. There is a variety of accommodations and our family really enjoys the layout of the condo loft. Lots of beds and space for the whole family...

My wife and I brought our toddlers to Douglas Fir Resort as it's recommended for family vacations. We thought it would be nice to have a quick getaway from Calgary only to find out how overpriced the location was. Paying $576 for two nights was really disappointing! The first day we arrived I walked into the first loft noticing the...

We stayed here for a couple of nights for a ski weekend with the family and it was a decent stay. The main attraction for us were the amenities that catered to our younger kids such as the waterslide and play park. Unfortunately, the temperature of the water slide pool was so cold though that nobody wanted to go in....

We've been coming to this hotel/resort for the past 17 years, but this will likely be our last trip. As others have stated, the rooms are dated, but they are fine. The issue is more with the front desk/management. Every year we seem to experience an issue either with our room bookings not being available on check-in, or being charged...

We usually stay here once a year but this will be our last visit. Water slide and outdoor hot tub was closed for maintenance but was not told that upon booking. Found out when we got there, oh well we live on. Luckily the hot tub inside was still up and running.......or not! Tried to use it and water wasn't...

Well it’s Family Day again in Alberta and I am packing up my family for another ski vacation in Banff for the weekend. My kids are getting older now, my oldest is almost an adult and the twins are pre-teens. Lodging with space is so important to give us all room after skiing and activities. This time my neighbour suggested...
