To make your booking experience as easy as possible, we have answered your most common questions!
What is your cancellation policy?
It’s pretty simple, really! We offer free of charge cancellations at any time, up until 72 hours before you’re due to check in. In other words, you have until 4pm (Mountain Time) three days before you’re due to arrive.
If you cancel within 72 hours (or don’t show up) then you will be charged our standard cancellation fee. This is the total of the first night of your stay, plus tax.
Do I need to pay anything upfront when I reserve my room?
There is no deposit required! All we need is a credit card on file (sorry, no debit cards) as a guarantee on the room and the ability to enforce our cancellation policy.
I need to make a reservation for three (or more) rooms. Is there anything more I need to do?
Well, it depends. If you want to make a group of bookings for a function, or an otherwise larger group, please call the Reservations Team directly on 1(800) 563-8764. Otherwise, the only difference is that we require a deposit of the first night of your stay plus tax for each room. If you still aren’t sure, feel free to call our Reservations Team.
When can I check in? When do I have to leave by?
Easy! All of our hotels allow you to check-in any time from 4pm onwards, while check out is by 11am.
On check-in a pre-authorization equal to your total anticipated stay, plus a $100 deposit for incidentals will be placed in a “holding-state” on your credit card. On checkout, if you use your credit card to pay for the room, the room amount will be processed and the deposit will be released. Credit card holds usually take 3-10 business days to clear. If after 10 business days the amount has not cleared, we advise you to contact your credit card company directly.
I booked online with Booking.com/Expedia/Hotels.com and I need to cancel/modify my booking. Can I do it through you?
Unfortunately we aren’t able to make any amendments to bookings not made directly through us. You will need to contact the company you originally booked through to make any changes.
How do I get to Banff?
Easy peasy! First off you need to fly to Calgary, Alberta. Then it’s just an hour and a half drive the highway to Banff. If you don’t want to rent a car, we recommend either the Banff Airporter or Brewster Express Transportation.

Is the tap water safe to drink?
All of the water in Banff is rated as high quality groundwater by environment Alberta. It tastes great and there are plenty of refill fountains around town, so make sure you bring your re-useable water bottles!
