Over Fox Hotel & Suites
Verblijven in de Fox Hotel & Suites is een pure verwennerij. Het middelpunt van het hotel is de 'hot-tub' waar u heerlijk de spieren kunt ontspannen na een actieve dag in het nationaal park. De overheerlijke Canadese burgers die Chili's Grill & Bar serveert, zijn ook zeker het proberen waard!

"3 star hotel at a 5 star price"
Just a few things to warn people about, 1) Read the fine print, the regular rooms DO NOT have air conditioning. Only the suites have air conditioning. 2) Usually half of the face clothes and hand towels were too stained to use. 3) The hotel has a big hot tub decorated as a cave. 7 out of the 9 days of our stay the Jacuzzi jets were out of order. When I complained I was always told "tomorrow". When I complained a final time at check out I was told "all complaints should go to Booking.com" since that is who I booked my reservation with. Booking.com is the only way I could book a stay at that hotel. No discount was offered because I booked with Booking.com. I will never use Booking.com again. 4) Breakfast is a cold breakfast. Waffles, toast and cereal are your only choices. The only eggs are cold hard boiled eggs. Bacon is $3 extra.
We had a nice little split level apartment with 2 double beds downstairs. There was a nice seating area upstairs and a kitchen. The room could have done with a little maintenance and replaced furniture but otherwise, it was fine. The aircon was a godsend because it was so hot The location was good, not right in the centre of town but close to and on the main drag. Breakfasts were good and we just tended to have waffles and fruit. Front desk staff were helpful and friendly
"Small room and no a/c"
The hotel is located away from the main hub of the town. Parking is not a problem. When we arrived after a long flight we were told that one of the rooms was not as we'd booked, and that as we'd booked via Expedia there was nothing they could do. Eventually it was sorted out and we got the rooms we'd booked. The standard room is small with no a/c, just an upright fan. The room is adequate for a couple of nights but I'd hate to,stay much longer. The 1bedroom suite is more spacious, but with a very uncomfortable sofa bed! Service was good from reception staff.
"Visiting Banff? There are other options"
The Fox is an average hotel and cannot be considered a bargain given some significant drawbacks. First is Banff itself, a crowded zoo in season, and if I visit again I'll stay in nearby Canmore. Second is the parking; I've never seen such a poorly constructed underground facility with spaces so narrow as to be nearly unuseable when it's not full (it was full every time we attempted to park there). Third is the overall construction (cheap frame with paper thin walls and noisy hallways) and the populace it caters to (young and drunk) that prevent one from getting a decent night's sleep. Our room was small, quite dark and poorly appointed. Frankly, I searched my memory and notes and found literally nothing to recommend about this hotel. It does serve a limited breakfast and it is clean but when vacationing I expect more than just that, starting with a good night's sleep and not crowds of drunk teenagers banging on the walls and doors. When my spouse and I travel, which is often and worldwide, I keep a daily detailed log of our travel experiences and my notes on the Fox are far less flattering than this review. I would not recommend nor return.
"A bit pricy, but location is GREAT and very convenient!"
Was located on prime Banff Avenue, which is a quaint stretch, dotted with many hotels. Most of them had exteriors done in charming woodsy cabin vibe. This hotel was nice but certainly overpriced. All things were 'fox motifed'. Room numbers on fox plagues, lamps and fixtures with fox decor. The suite had a living room with a pull-out sofa, attached kitchenette and a master bedroom. Housekeeping is impeccable and they did all the dishes for you which was really, really nice! Living area has an A/C but not the master bedroom, but it did have a fan. Weather is rather cool, so wasn't particularly bothered. It does have a continental complimentary breakfast served at the in-house Chili's restaurant. if the hotel's brochure is to be believed, early settlers came looking for ore , instead hit the jackpot of finding bubbling liquid gold at Banff, namely the hot springs. So, they decided to package and sell it as an experience to the weary traveler. Hotel claims their grotto is an homage to this Banff tradition! We decided to check it out. Cavern like interior decor with bubbling hot water cascading down craggy rocks and jets, was nice. The grotto had an open ceiling so guests on the upper floors could look in, and had little glass insets on the rock wall and folks could peer in as well. I thought I was going to be on show like a seal basking in the warmth! We weren't deterred, we put on our swim suits and decided to soak at the grotto. Loved the experience!
