Reviewed 15 February 2016 via mobile

We stayed here for 7 nights and we were really impressed. Great rooms which had good amenities. The hotel had a chillis restaurant which come in handy, they had a spa which was good to use after a day skiing. It's only a short walk into town maybe 5-10 minutes. We found the staff friendly, knowledgable & approachable they booked a few day trips for us.

Negatives - the only one was a bit of noise from the spa area.

Absolutely perfect hotel all round. Awesome location, comfortable rooms with all facilities, lovely hot pool. Great free bus service into town and nice free breakfast. Chili's restaurant is also very good with superb food. Very enjoyable stay indeed :)

The location and amenities were great. But, choose your room wisely. We find that while on a ski trip we need a few .... things sleep and space for our stuff. We thought we booked a king bed therefore would have plenty of room to sleep and a room big enough for our gear. Nope! Our room was tiny with a queen bed and no room (dresser or shelves) to take our clothes out of our luggage. We also had a problem with the "fresh air" vent pumping wood smoke filled air into our room. My guess is the intake vent is too close to the chimney that is in the lobby. Don't get me wrong. I would stay here again but I would request a different size and location of my room. The staff were over the moon great and very enjoyable to work with.
.

Room Tip: I would try the buildings not attached to the lobby.

My husband and I stayed at the Fox Hotel & Suites with another couple for a skiing holiday.
The hotel rooms are comfortable, clean and well maintained.
We paid for continental breakfast as part of our package but I would recommend that you don't do this. The choice was very poor, probably one of the worst continental breakfasts I have ever had.
If you want a really good cooked breakfast then visit The Keg, at the Caribou Hotel, excellent quality and not too pricey.
Additionally the food in Chillis, the hotel restaurant, was rather mediocre. Fortunately there is such a vast range of restaurants in Banff you have plenty of other options.
Would I return to this hotel? Probably not, I like a decent breakfast before a days skiing and this hotel didn't provide one.

We stayed here this week for the first half of our honeymoon and we loved it! All the staff were charming and nothing was too much trouble.
The highlight of our stay was having round the clock access to the most amazing hottub underground which was just magical and the perfect way to relax after a hard day on the slopes!

Thank you again for making our honeymoon so special!

Excellent accommodation only a short walk from downtown Banff. We had adjoining rooms which were clean and spacious with a kitchenette area. The complimentary breakfast offered a variety of option, but make your own waffles was the highlight!
Reception staff were very helpful and Sue gave us great information about skidooing.
"Chillis to go" restaurant was great and offered a varied menu to suit all tastes.
The hot pool was welcome after a day of skiing.
The ski bus stop to Sunshine, Lake Louise and Mount Norquay was at the hotel next door, so only a short walk with ski kit.

We stayed at the Fox on Tuesday the 9th of Feb. Immediately the Front Desk Agent was warm and welcoming. She also gave us an upgrade to a suite. Using the underground hot-tub was such a nice addition. Breakfast was delicious for being complimentary and a late check-out was given. No changes needed for this hotel it was lovely!
