Fox Hotel & Suites
Why We Love This Hotel
- Alpine lodge-style hotel with stunning views outside the hotel of Banff National Park
- Good for skiers; there are three resorts right on the doorstep
- There’s an open-air hot tub in the underground spa, inspired by Banff's Cave and Basin historic site
- Free amenities like Wi-Fi and parking
Fox Hotel and Suites, a 10-minute walk from downtown Banff, is great value for a notoriously expensive ski town. There's free underground parking, bus tickets, Wi-Fi and a continental buffet breakfast. The mountain views from some of the floors are stunning. After all, "few would deny that the Canadian Rockies are one of the most extravagantly beautiful ranges on Earth" (Fodor’s).
The building is reminiscent of an alpine lodge, with an abundance of wood and stone, a log fireplace in the lobby and a hot tub in the underground area -- also home to a sauna, cold shower and small gym. The year-round hot tub is particularly unusual, styled as a recreation of the Banff Cave and Basin with a partially open roof. Breakfast and dinner are served at the on-site Chili’s Grill & Bar, which specializes in large portions of classic American fare -- think ribs, burgers, tacos and steaks. There is also a margarita bar in the lounge that has a popular apres-ski scene.
Right outside the hotel is Banff National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with miles of mountains, lakes and rivers in the Canadian Rockies to explore. In winter, ski resorts Norquay, Lake Louise and Sunshine Valley are nearby. In the warmer months of the year, there are plenty of opportunities to go hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking in the area. Complimentary bus tickets will take you to sites such as the Banff Gondola and Upper Hot Springs.
Accommodations are mostly suites with small kitchenettes that include a microwave, fridge, toaster, coffee maker, and one or two bedrooms. There are more basic rooms, though they are a little small. The two-bedroom suites are ideal for families, with two bedrooms, a living room and a small kitchen nook.
