Hi All Great choice for families the rooms are huge and so are the beds. Its very clean and tidy. The hot tub was a favourite of ours after the slopes, set us up nicely for our evening meals. ................................................................................................................................................

Just came back august 6th 2014. Location was good, staff friendly. Definitely needs microwaves in rooms. Parking had very tight spots. Nothing fancy but nice place for the money. Walking distance to everything, but far enough away from all the foot traffic to make for a quiet hotel.

We got a 'family size room with jetted tub', which was nice, but, not as nice as the pictures showed. The room was need of updating, especially the bathroom with its stained linoleum and peeling wallpaper. The bathroom was small, and the tub was smallish with jacuzzi jets. The room was big, with 2 areas for hanging up clothes and,had...

Banff is a very beautiful, but extremely expensive town. We chose Irwin's because it was centrally located, had one of the most reasonable rates in the area (albeit at a still-pricey $188/night with taxes) with some of the amenities we look for: free wifi, free parking, and a fridge. However, I personally think that if you're going to offer a...

This was a terrific spot close to the shopping area in Banff. You can easily walk in and the hotel has friendly reception and great roomy rooms. Ours had a terrific view of the mountain out the back. Highly recommended.

This is a hotel as just a place to sleep. Our room on the first floor was as a previous reviewer stated non-functional. The air conditioner was wimpy and noisy. We opened the window but then you get the outside noise. So, the room stayed dark and hot. We had a refrig but no microwave. Very skimpy on the shampoo...

Stayed here for 2 nights, booked online a king room. Check-in was fast, receptionist friendly, and the underground parking was easy and convenient. Our room on the first floor was extremely tiny.

This was a nice hotel on a street of indistinguishably nice hotels. They are all quite pricey and all in a good location. Some are closer to the center of town than this, some are further away.

Thanks for your most recent review and for staying with us. We are glad you chose us! Summer season is busy and parking is as you say a premium.
