      The hotel is very well situated - practically in the middle of Banff so a quick walk to restaurants/shops etc. It is very well run, the front desk is very efficient, the rooms are spotless and comfortable, the staff pleasant.

      In some of the rooms can hear noise from other rooms eg. people walking around in ski boots on the floor above.

      The beds were very comfortable and the room was very clean.

      The lounge in the hotel closed at 10:00 pm on a Friday night.

      * nice and helpful staff that makes you feel very welcome * great location, walking distance to all shops and restaurants * good facilities

      * hotel is not very soundproof, which is especially annoying when the cleaning personnel starts early and sings along with their (loud!) music

      When I did the initial booking ,the website say our room was booked, we can only book 2 nights stay, but when we get to the hotel our room was available for a 3 rd night, only for $250 for that one night.

      We stayed at the Banff International Hotel for three days at the start of our trip and enjoyed our lovely spacious room so much we booked it again for the final two nights of our holiday. Our room was large and very comfortable. Location of hotel is great - close to all shops and restaurants and the hotel restaurant is good value for breakfast.

      The only criticism is the fact that we left a phone adaptor plugged in the wall when we checked out the first time and when we checked back in at the end of our trip we asked 4 times in the two days if someone could check to see if it was in lost and found. Each time we had to explain the situation and no one was able to follow it up - housekeeping didn't answer, can't find the lost and found articles right now, etc. etc. Otherwise we were very happy with the hotel.

      It was close to the train station as we had to catch the Rocky Mountaineer the next day and we were able to walk to the station.
