The Moose Hotel & Suites

The Moose Hotel & Suites

The Moose Hotel & Suites sits on Banff Avenue, the focal point of this mountain town. The first hotel to open in Banff National Park since 2007, The Moose has been thoughtfully designed with a touch of mountain elegance drawn from creative woodwork and warm, natural materials.  

Whilst a modern building, the hotel retains a snippet of history; the affectionately named ‘Corner House’. An original Banff house, this former mining-town dwelling stands, beautifully restored, in the middle of the Moose’s courtyard. Home to notable figures from Banff over the years, including composer Leonard Leacock, it’s now available for guests to stay in.  

The cohort of staff at The Moose provide exceptional service, making the hotel a wonderful retreat after a busy day exploring the surrounding national park. The Moose caters for all, with family-friendly suites and facilities, along with more luxurious touches including the rooftop hot pools, from which you can enjoy views of the Tunnel and Sulphur Mountains.

With 174 rooms, the Moose Hotel & Suites has a range of one and two bed rooms and suites available. The decor has a natural feel with neutral fabrics, wooden furniture and large windows that make the most of the views. All rooms include luxury bedding and rainfall showers, complimentary toiletries, coffee and tea facilities, in-room safes and air conditioning, with suites additionally offering kitchenettes and gas fireplaces. We recommend rooms on the first floor or above. 


A short walk from downtown Banff, the Moose is well-situated to explore all that Banff has to offer. The nearby Cave and Basin Historic Site and the Banff Gondola and Hot Springs are just a short drive away, or easily reachable via the ROAM bus service, a pass for which is complimentary during your stay. 

Food and drink

On-site restaurant Pacini offers authentically Italian food with a popular bread bar and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Adjacent hotel The Fox has a selection of restaurants for those who don’t wish to travel far. The staff also can point you towards a wide variety of restaurants in downtown Banff. 

Facilities and activities

Perhaps The Moose’s best facilities are the luxurious rooftop hot pools, from which you can enjoy the snow-capped mountain scenery. After taking a dip, you can gather around the cosy fire pit. There’s also the Meadow Spa, as well as an indoor pool, fitness centre and sauna. Guest laundry is available, and with free parking and Wi-Fi throughout your stay, you don’t have to worry about any hidden extras. 


The Moose has six accessible hotel rooms featuring two queen beds. These are located on the ground floor, with elevator access to hotel amenities. Rooms feature a roll-in shower and extra space. Please note that the patios attached to these rooms are not wheelchair accessible. 

Our opinion

Stylish, quirky and supremely comfortable, The Moose is an excellent place to stay in Banff, combining a convenient location with a touch of luxury to provide a wonderful base for your visit to the National Park.
