Superior room in Banff...:) Aug 25, 2014
During our road route in western Canada, we hadn't booked hotels, because our program may change. So we arrived in Banff under a hot sun, we parked our car and headed to information center. The polite girl consulted the system and told us that there are only 2 hotels with available rooms: The Rimrock resort and the Ptarmigan Inn. So, had to rush. We "opened" our step and few minutes later, we were front of the reception of Rimrock resort. We wait because before us, served one company from 3 people. Bad luck. These tourists booked the last free room! We had another one chance again.
The girl in the reception of Ptarmigan told me the prices for 2 nights: 149 for the first and 129 for the second one. Total 309 cad dollars icluded taxes. Not bad! Finally we were 2 times lucky because she suggested to us upgrade room for free!! A superior big room wait us!
This hotel at one end of Banff avenue, has spa room, an Italian restaurant(Meatball) close to lobby, 24 hours open reception, free parking, ΑΤΜ, and vending machines for snack.
Wi fi in rooms is weak, because the hotel is big, but isn't a good excuse.
The room was large with two super double beds who cared for our sleep!
Summary is that Ptarmigan Inn is a super choice to stay in Banff!

The Banff Ptarmigran Inn is located on Banff Avenue in downtown Banff. A convenient location and no need to use your rental car with everything in walking distance. Ask the hotel staff for a free bus pass to save money.
I got this hotel by priceline and it's bidding war. I didn't expect a ton, it was a cute place and the people who worked there were extremely nice and helpful. We got our room and upon entry it was uncomfortably hot! My Mom was melting so she asked if the heat could be turned off and they told us it was central heating. Meaning, we asked if they could swap rooms. I have read reviews about the summer time and no AC and I honestly couldn't imagine!
We were switched to a 'superior' room that had 2 queens sized beds with the bathroom separating the beds and a window. Only 1 tv but having the window was so much better. Lucky for us when some drunk guys were making a ton of noise in the early morning hours the hotel staff was quick to ask them to leave and not return.
I didn't want to leave this hotel a day early but we had to in order to not have to leave by 5am the next morning. All in all I would stay here again because of the staff and location.
