Wonderfully renovated property. Really nice room, and free parking and breakfast buffet. Hot tub in the courtyard and excellent Italian restaurant next door. No airconditioning. I don't think they needed my license plate number or a photo copy of my driver's license. Privacy thing.

Great stay. Friendly and quick checkin. We had a corner room which was very nice on second floor. Excellent bathroom and shower. Room has coffee maker, fridge, kettle. Highlights are the outdoor hot tubs, one with a fireplace, and steam shower, and sauna. And included breakfast is amazing! Far from your typical continental breakfast, this includes everything, including serving staff.... More

I enjoyed my stay here. The room and bathroom were clean. The wifi is not strong in the room, though it is strong in the lobby. The staff are very helpful. The hotel does not have its own restaurant but is located not too far from everything else in town.

Good location for downtown Banff, very friendly and accommodating staff. The complimentary breakfast was good. Unfortunately the place is showing some real wear and tear and we found it very noisy -- heating system was very loud and plumbing for room upstairs sounded like it was in the room with us. All in all a decent choice for the money... More

We stayed at the Banff Aspen Lodge because all of our regular hotels were already booked up. The Banff Aspen turned out to be a fine small hotel! It is right on Banff Ave so close to town: restaurants, coffees, shops, museums, galleries, etc. We got an economy room on the main floor near the hot tubs. It is a... More

Small rooms but since we were in Banff it didn't matter. Spent most of our time enjoying the town. We stayed here one night on our 3 week honeymoon vacation and they upgraded our room!! Very nice touch. All staff were great and breakfast in morning helped us kick off our day

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights as part of our hiking holiday. The staff were very friendly and efficient. We had a problem with the bathroom shower/tap which was immediately repaired. After a day's hiking we throughly enjoyed the very well run Whitebark Cafe which is located at the hotel. The buffet breakfast gives an excellent selection.

We really enjoyed our visit: the staff were friendly and helpful. The amenities were great - the breakfast choice was wonderful, with freshly in-house baked mufflins and loaves. The cafe, located by the front lobby, serves Australian-style coffee (which means it is freshly brewed by the order - a treat!). And, the hot tubs were superb for a late evening... More
