“Cozy and Warm”
Reviewed 23 October 2016

A great way to end a wonderful week in Canada by staying at the Fox. Great location with restaurants close by. The Fox represents what Banff is, a natural look, lots of wood with bright rooms, open spaces and a wonderful hot pool. Our room was on the 4th floor and included a large bedroom suite, a lounging area with gas fireplace and small kitchen area. The room was clean and the bedding was excellent. Lights in the bedroom are not on a wall switch, which was a little inconvenient, but overall a pleasant stay. Underground parking was a bonus. Will return for sure on our next visit to Banff.

Our stay at the Fox hotel was great! Check in was a breeze, they upgraded us to a suite for no extra charge. The lady at the front desk was very helpful, showed me a map and circled things to do. The room itself was very clean and had great charm. The hotel is just a 10 minute walk to the city centre. The hot pool is a great feature and definitely worth checking out. The walls are a little thin so if you're a light sleeper that could cause a problem.

All in all a great hotel, away from the hustle and bustle of downtown but still close enough to enjoy all the sights!

We have now stayed twice at The Fox, and we have thoroughly enjoyed both visits. The rooms are comfortable and quiet, the service is excellent and the location in far enough from the centre of town to provide some excercise and keep away from the noise.

Room Tip: Both rooms we have had have been quiet. Up high and on the ends would be quieter.

Right from check in everything was great! we traveled in a group ( booked 2 rooms). when we checked in they were able to put us side by side. Parking was ok, ( we traveled in small SUV, was underground) and lobby was welcoming. We stayed in one lodge room, and one king size room located on 4th floor.
the rooms was clean, welcoming. The cave pool vent shot out across in front our room which was cool see the steam. Only dislike about our room on 4th floor was no water pressure in shower.
Breakfast was amazing and actually filling. Pool area was very interesting and unique. Hotel was within walking distance to down town. Would defiantly come back.

Room Tip: higher floors, less water pressure.

We had a great stay at The Fox, easily walking distance from downtown. We had a smaller room that did the trick for our one night stay. There is no A/C but a fan is provided. The "Cave & Basin" inspired hot tub area is a true gem so make sure you pack your swim gear. Underground parking is a nice bonus too. We would stay again for sure.

this is a faux timber style hotel posing as some kind of lodge. The rooms are strangely designed so that the bathrooms are tiny and the extra room is a suite wasted because of its strange configuration. All in all a very poor night was spent here after arriving on the train. To make matters worse the hotel restaurant is actually a Chillli's - something have never seen before with the Chili style food. The so called gourmet breakfast(free) was so awful it would be criminal to charge for it. Just an overall bad experience. There are numerous small hotels in this town that are probably at least minimally better but stay away from this one !

Room Tip: are there any ?

This is a great place to stay. Rooms are nice and reasonably priced. Try the hot tub "cave" pool. Staff were all very helpful and friendly...... We enjoyed our stay here. They helped us with our luggage issues that we had with our airline.

Room Tip: Try the hot tub pool!
