Charming Mountain Hotel

Vacation in the mountains at the Banff Ptarmigan Inn in the Banff National Park. This pet-friendly hotel is within walking distance to downtown Banff, and minutes to outdoor activities and tourist attractions.

The hotel offers 24-hour front desk service, on-site parking, ski storage, bike rentals, complimentary breakfast, newspaper, business center, and meeting and special event space.

Outdoor Activities, Sightsee, and Explore

Take a tour with Banff Gondola and see the beautiful views of the park from the top of Sulphur Mountain. Spend a day touring the beautiful Lake Louise. Lake Louise offers various outdoor activities such as skiing, snowboarding, and hiking. Take the scenic route through the Johnson Canyon to hike or ride a bike. Watch the sun rise and fall while fishing at Bow Lake. Go whitewater rafting with Wild Water Adventures, Inc. Visit Kingsmik Tours and watch the dogs sledding. Mount Norquay also offers downhill skiing and snowboarding. Rent a canoe from Canoe Docks and go boating.

Cross-country skiing and golfing are also nearby.

Tour the Cave and Basin National Historic site. The Cave and Basin National Historic site is home to the Upper Hot Springs, where tourists take delight with soaking in the steamy mineral water. Stroll the Cave and Basin path to learn the history. Visit the Banff Park Museum to see exhibits reflecting Canadian history and culture. View the rock formations at HooDoo. The rocks are natural formations from corrosion of the water and wind.

Relax in the hotel's spa tub, sauna, and steam room. Dine in the hotel's Meatball Pizza & Pasta restaurant serving Italian cuisine. Nearby is the Keg Steakhouse & Bar, the WildFire Grill, and the Bear's Den Pub. For nightlife and entertainment, drop in the HooDoo Nightclub and Lounge.

The comfortable rooms at the Ptarmigan Inn provide luxury bedding, and have designs of traditional decor. Each room features a flat screen television with cable, free Internet access, radio, a coffee or tea maker, climate control, an iron and ironing board, and hair dryer. In-room massages are available.

The rooms at the Ptarmigan Inn offer spacious rooms with luxury bedding. Like the nearby Rundlestone Lodge and the Banff Caribou Lodge & Spa, the Ptarmigan Inn is in Banff National Park near various activities for outdoor fans. We recommend this hotel for its ideal place, and the complimentary breakfast offered to each guest.
