Why We Love This Hotel

  • Renovated hotel in alpine ski chalet surrounded by mountains
  • Free heated, underground parking and Wi-Fi
  • Banff is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Canada’s top tourist destinations
  • Indoor whirlpool, dry sauna and steam room on-site


Although the outside of Banff International Hotel looks like a classic alpine ski chalet set against a backdrop of snow-topped mountains, the inside is all modern. Recently renovated, the public areas and guest rooms are painted sleek, subdued shades of chrome and copper and offer contemporary amenities like free Wi-Fi throughout the property while rooms are equipped with flat screen televisions and iPod docking stations.

Before hitting the slopes, guests can store ski equipment in the hotel’s lockers. Afterwards, warm up in the property’s large Jacuzzi, steam room and dry sauna. Après ski can be enjoyed at RG’s Lounge, where cocktails are served by the fireplace. Ricky’s All Day Grill lives up to its name, serving three meals a day in a family-friendly environment and offers seasonal outdoor seating facing the main street of Banff Avenue.

The hotel is a 10-minute drive from Banff Gondola, 20 minutes from Lake Minnewanka and 40 minutes from Lake Louise.
