Affordable Mountain Hotel Near Downtown Banff

Cozy Mountain Hotel

Nestled within a mountain haven, Banff Caribou Lodge and Spa offers a relaxing and cozy ambiance. It is located on Banff Avenue, making it easy to reach downtown Banff with just a short walk. With free access to the Banff roam bus, you don’t have to walk. It takes you to downtown Banff, the tunnel mountain area, Banff upper hot springs, Banff gondola, and Castle in the Rockies.

Rejuvenation and Adventure

When you get hungry, visit the Keg Steakhouse and Bar. The casual atmosphere mixes perfectly with the beautiful cabin-style décor. Enjoy a delicious steak and a hearty glass of aromatic red wine while you rest up from your busy day exploring the Rocky Mountains.

If you need a bit more to fully recharge your batteries, hit the spa. Relax with a soothing massage, or treat your body with a body treatment, like a chocolate and apricot body wrap or a revitalizing body polish. Facials, manicures, pedicures, and waxing are also available.

Don’t forget to get out of the hotel to discover the Rocky Mountains. Visit Banff National Park, where the majestic and glorious views of the wilderness will amaze and delight. Give skiing a sho, and sign up for Caribou Snow School, which offers private lessons to teach you basic lessons and safety. If skiing isn’t for you, consider a Banff bike rental to explore the mountains, or watch your children play at the children’s playground and picnic area.
