The Fox Hotel & Suites
Fox Hotel & Suites maintains a modern, mountain lodge-feel in a convenient position on Banff Avenue, close to the town's amenities but still offering peace and quiet in the evenings. The property is a good choice for families, with a superb grotto-style hot spring swimming pool and a variety of adjoining rooms and suites to cater for larger group sizes. Some of the suites have fantastic views over the mountains of Banff National Park, while Chili's Bar & Grill serves warming dishes that are full of flavour — perfect after a day of exploring the mountains.
There are six room and suite categories, the largest of which can accommodate up to ten people. The entry-level hotel rooms have either a queen bed or two doubles and interior views of the courtyard. Meanwhile, the suites come in a variety of sizes, offering one or two bedrooms and separate living rooms, as well as kitchenettes for self-catering, with most offering mountain views. Most also have balconies, where you can enjoy the view with your morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. All rooms and suites are well-appointed with tea/coffee making facilities, safes, hairdryers and TVs.
The hotel is located on the town’s main thoroughfare, Banff Avenue, approximately ten minutes’ walk from the main strip of shops, restaurants and bars. There's a stop for the Banff Roam bus located outside the hotel for those who prefer not to walk, which the hotel provides complimentary passes for.
Food and Drink
The hotel's restaurant is part of a chain franchise, Chili's Grill & Bar. It's a popular family choice, serving American-style grill options with a Mexican twist. There's also Chili's Margarita Bar in the lounge, where guests can relax with a drink. A complimentary continental breakfast is available for guests, consisting of a range of pastries and cereals.
The various suites can accommodate family groups, with the Superior Two Bedroom Suite able to accommodate up to ten people.
Facilities and Activities
There's a fantastic grotto-style hot pool, styled like an outdoor hot spring in recognition of the long history of hot spring bathing in Banff. The hotel also features a sauna and fitness room, plus laundry facilities and free underground parking.
This is a well located, cosy and authentic mountain resort, serving as a great base from which to explore the Banff region.
