Beautiful Mountain viewe Room was small and there was minimal counter/table too space to put things. Bed was very comfortable. Never saw the maid the entire week we were there although our room was made up daily. Our shower went extremely hot/cold without any warning, a little scary. The restaurant staff were nice and friendly, ...

Fantastic hotel with amazing views. The staff are helpful and friendly and the restaurant is excellent. Unfortunately, the hot tub was not working during our stay, but we probably would not have had time to use it anyway.

Stay here because of its location, which is enough This is a nice hotel, but not the kind of experience that you think you will have. The little details are lacking. Service ranges from excellent to "hello! I'm over here!" We had a double queen room and it was quite nice and large. The bathroom is excellent and super clean. There is coffee and tea ...

Great getaway Beautiful setting, great hikes, beautiful lake. Staff were amazing, the restaurant in the Lodge is first class in service and food. Will be going back. Be prepared for isolation, no mobile phone in the area and no internet or TV in the rooms which is fantastic for a few nights stay.

Pocket Guide: Historic Hotel Hotels in Banff National Park

Staying in a Historical Hotel in Banff National Park

You don’t get much more historic than Banff Springs Hotel. Leading the way since 1888, it enticed tourists from far and wide – including British royalty – to the hot springs found by railway workers a few years earlier, Upper Hot Springs. And to this day, you can still soak in the history and hot springs of Banff thanks to Banff Springs Hotel and other traditional buildings very much like it. With several beautiful turn-of-the-century hotels to choose from, you can enjoy either enduringly luxurious accommodation in Banff, Lake Louise or Mount Norquay, Canada’s oldest ski resort, or opt for more budget-friendly tradition in Banff town centre.

Historic Sites in the Banff National Park

Banff National Park – Canada’s first national park – has a fascinating history. Since workers building the Trans-Canada Railway in 1883 discovered the hot springs, the area has attracted tourists. During your own holiday in Banff, make your way to the Cave and Basin National Historic Site overlooking Bow River to marvel at the waters both above and below ground and learn about the geology of the springs. In the centre of Banff, there are several museums to visit. Try the Buffalo Nations Luxton Museum to learn about the history of the First Nations People of the area. The Whyte museum explores everything to do with the Canadian Rockies and has a great collection of heritage artefacts and art. And you won’t want to miss a trip up the Banff Gondola. As well as views over the Canadian Rockies in all their glory, the interpretive centre has displays about the park’s ecosytem and wildlife as well as the history of the area’s first inhabitants – the First Nations people.

Other Things to Do in Banff National Park

Banff National Park is famous for its outdoor sports. In winter you can ski and snowboard here and there are several great ski resorts to choose from. In summer there are wonderful hiking opportunities as well as kayaking and mountain biking, all within easy reach of a historic hotel.
