The Fairmont Banff Springs
Sitting at the top end of the 'lost-for-words' category comes this exquisite beauty. Imagine crossing a Scottish castle with a French chateau and then plonking it in the middle of one of the world's most spectacular (and accessible) wilderness areas...
Banff Rocky Mountain Resort
Being 4km out of town at the far, far end of Banff Ave is a small price to pay for the preferential prices and excellent all-round facilities here (including a hot tub, pool, tennis courts and cafe-restaurant)...
Fairmont Château Lake Louise
This opulent Fairmont enjoys one of the world's most enviable locations on the shores of Lake Louise. Originally built by the Canadian Pacific Railway in the 1890s, the hotel was added to in 1925 and 2004...
Park Place Inn
Giving nothing away behind its rather ordinary exterior among a parade of downtown shops, the Park Place is a head-turner as soon as you ascend the stairs to its plush open lobby...
Hi Banff Alpine Centre
Banff's best hostel is near the top of Tunnel Mountain and well away from the madness of Banff Ave. Walkers will find the commute a good workout, and their efforts will not go unrewarded...
Hi Lake Louise
This is what a hostel should be – clean, friendly, affordable and full of interesting travelers. The building itself is a stunning example of Rockies architecture, with raw timber and stone melding to a rustic aesthetic masterpiece...
Banff Y Mountain Lodge
The YWCA is Banff's swankiest hostel option, offering dorm rooms along with private family-oriented accommodations down by the river.
It would be easy not to like this hostel. With dorm rooms that sleep upward of 40 people, giving it that distinctive refugee camp feel, and a location just far enough from town that the walk is a killer, it's already two strikes down...
Inns Of Banff
Slightly out of the hustle and bustle, there are some good deals to be found here. Though the architecture is a little passé, there are loads of facilities, including both indoor and outdoor pools, ski and bike rentals, and a Japanese restaurant.
Falcon Crest Lodge
Of all the salubrious woody lodges in Canmore, Falcon Crest is perhaps the best. Ample deluxe rooms have balconies with views of Canmore's famous peaks, incuding Three Sisters, and there are various suite options...
Mount Robson Inn
A clean, plush place laid out motel-style on the edge of Jasper Town which offers hot tubs, on-site restaurant and a substantial complimentary breakfast.
Irwin's Mountain Inn
A marginal drop in price and quality on the upper echelons of Banff Ave lands you in Irwin's, where the rooms are verging on motel-like and the decor is more 'plastic' than granite...
The Rundlestone Lodge
This place is filled with pseudo old-English charm, complete with Masterpiece Theater chairs in the lobby. The standard rooms are fairly, well…standard, but family and honeymoon suites come with a kitchen, fireplace and loft...
Lake Louise Inn
A large, sprawling resort close to the village that has its merits, including a pool, restaurant and a tiny historic ice cream chalet. Room quality is variable, with some of the older wings more downbeat and motel-like.
With its gabled Bavarian roof, the Astoria is one of the town's most distinctive pieces of architecture and one of an original trio of Jasper hotels that has been owned by the same family since the 1920s...
The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge
Sitting on the shore of Lake Beauvert and surrounded by manicured grounds and mountain peaks, this classic old lodge is deservedly popular...
Rimrock Resort Hotel
Next door to the hot springs, the Rimrock is plush and spectacularly located, although it often gets overshadowed by Banff's crème de la crème hotel, the Fairmont...
Bow View Lodge
The Bow View is a journeyman Banff option – older than most of the attractive log inns that line Banff Avenue, but neat and tidy all the same. Without any surcharge you can use the fitness facilities and pool in the huge Banff Park Lodge next door.
Tucked demurely behind the Chateau Lake Louise, the Deer Lodge is another historic throwback dating from the 1920s...
Windtower Lodge & Suites
Named for the stunning rock feature only a few kilometers to the east, this modern and well-appointed hotel is a good option. The rooms are a bit small, so spending more on a suite is a good idea...
The most atmospheric cabins in the park are set next to the Athabasca River amid tall trees and splendid tranquility. Hardwood floors, wood-paneled walls plus fireplaces and kitchenettes inspire coziness...
Num Ti Jah Lodge
Standing like a guardian of Bow Lake, the historic Num-Ti-Jah Lodge is full to the brim with character and backcountry nostalgia. Carved-wood interior decor, animal heads and photos from the golden age adorn the walls...
