This gem is located in the heart of Banff with easy walking to nearby attractions! Onsite restaurants and staff are friendly and food was very good for the price point. Unfortunately nothing was on when we were in town but has some great entertainment on site as well.

Overall the room was great. Parking and check in is a little bit of a drive. Parking is out of the way which made it challenging with multiple trips to the car. The room was super quiet and I didn't hear any hall noise.

Went here for a conference and was blown away by the location and the amenities. The Banff Centre is a great location for both business and leisure trips. The views are spectacular and the hotel is close to downtown Banff.

We found out about the Banff Centre from a friend, and we could not have been more thrilled. The campus is well located, has beautiful vistas of Banff, and top quality restaurants. Would definitely stay there again!

My wife and I attended the Banff International String Quartet Competition recently, and have been attending this for the past eighteen years. The music, the accommodation and the mountain scenery were all magnificent.

Fantastic facilities, great pool, climbing wall, fitness centre. 10 minute walk to town. Rooms are kept in good condition. Hiking trails and views in every direction. A different Banff experience from busy downtown.”
