Weatger was fantastic. Hit 30 degrees Celsius. Rooms are not ac we were on the third floor our room temperature at night was 27 degrees. It made it impossible to sleep.

Good 6.0
The hotel itself was really clean, but it’s layout is frustrating, trying to get help from staff was overwhelming due to the sheer amount of people in the hotel, and no air conditioning. They put the tiniest fan in our room, and the heat coming up from the parking garage made our room disgustingly hot. This place would be better in the fall, or spring.

Breakfast with a egg station!
We live in Calgary and we needed a day off. Banff is a gem in the rockies. I was out for a day with my wife and two sons. When we arrived they were absolutely amazing in receiving us. The aussie lady gave us the balcony room with mountain view. Most of the hotels in Banff are a bit outdated, but that is ok. It fits the destination a bit. The breakfast was great, but it could be way better. A lot of products are premade like every other 4 star or less hotel in Canada unfortunately. (Alberta/Saskatchewan experiences) But they had a egg station and that makes it great again. Coffee was really good. Would stay here again (-:

I'm glad I chose The Ptarmigan
Excellent location and all buses (ski and Roam) stop outside. They have a quiet policy which is adhered so earlier reviewer may be out of date. Staff were very helpful and always knew the answers to our enquiries.
