A great location close enough to the hustle and bustle of downtown but just far enough away makes this hotel with one of the largest spas in town a top pick. Hand-hewn logs, slate flooring, and a massive fieldstone fireplace give the lobby a mountain lodge ambience. There is a huge 26-person jetted hot pool and a steam room on-site. Rooms have a Western feel with basic pine furnishings; some have balconies and wood-burning fireplaces. There is also a good restaurant on-site, complimentary Wi-Fi, complimentary Banff transit passes, and free heated underground parking.
