This hotel is perfectly situated for walking around town and also great easy access to the interstate. The front desk clerks were great for dinner recommendations and all other questions about the area. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the Bow River and it was gorgeous.

We stayed in the best room in the hotel room 109. It had 2 beds, 2 couches, kitchen fully stocked, separate toilet from shower area and an amazing shower with 4 heads. The housekeeping did an amazing job cleaning the room. the staff were very helpful. The location is close to the town.

I dealt with Carmella at the checking counter. After having to wait for 3-4 minutes to check me in (although no other customers were in front of me, she was waiting for a phone call?!?), she literally barked at me and shouted "let me finish" as I "dare" to ask her a question related to the instructions she was giving...

Stayed at Bow View hotel on a recent visit to the beautiful town of Banff. Great location within walking distance of the entire town. My room and balcony faced the Bow River, which was very beautiful.

Beds are way too hard, for 170$ a night I kinda expect a comfy bed. Hardest bed I've ever slept in in my life. Good location, clean and very friendly staff. Rooms are decent priced though. Good experience over all, but the beds for sure need new mattresses.!!

Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Bow View Lodge. The major plus about this hotel is its proximity to everything and free parking. It is about 100m away from the banks of the Bow River which is such a gorgeous walk at any time of day. Especially at sunset. Also, it is within a few minutes walk to everywhere...

I took a trip to Banff with two friends only staying one night at Bow View Lodge. Next time we will spend more time there as It is so convenient to the main town and only a short drive away from all the sightseeing spots. The Walk along the Bow river just across from the Lodge is splendid, what views,...

The hotel is perfectly situated alongside the river, sitting out on our patio was heaven. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful.Of particular note was the young lady at the reception desk who made use feel so welcome. My companion was a lady from Britain and she LOVED everything about our stay at Bow...

Good clean room. Located great for walking around. Our room with wonderfull view to the Bow river. Our room had a balcony with two chairs but it was too cold to seat outside. So, it is a good place to stay.
