Elk + Avenue Hotel
Great hotel in a great Canadian city. Friendly staff, nicely decorated rooms and very comfortable beds. And it's surrounded by the Rocky Mountains. It don't get better than this.
The hotel was recently refurbished and I love how open/spacious the modern reception area looked. Very convenient location along the main Street in cute little Banff
Unfortunately we were part of a huge group tour. I contacted the hotel prior to arrival and they kindly agreed to keep our luggage for us so we could go out right away instead of wasting time in the reception waiting for our room keys and then wrestling our luggage in the room before making our way out again. We only arrived late in the afternoon and we're leaving first thing the next morning. So we had to maximise the little time we had in Banff.
We were allocated to a spacious 2 queen bed loft suite on the top floor. The bathroom, dining area and sitting area was on the lower level and the bedroom was upstairs. We were also pleasantly surprised to have a Nespresso coffee machine which has not been provided as standard in any of the north American hotels we had been to on the east coast and west coast (it's a lot more common in the EU).
The beds were huge and very comfy. We had a great, relaxed snooze before our big day out exploring the Rockies.
Highly recommend as a base hotel for visiting all 3 parks. Can walk directly from hotel to shops, restaurants, grocery store. Big, nice room.
Stayed in this hotel for a brief 1 night and it was a solid stay. The decor was modern and the washrooms are clean and comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and return for future stays.
Really enjoyed our stay. Clean comfortable room. Easy walking distance to everything.
