Lodge-Style Hotel in Banff National Park

Family Friendly Lodgings Near Banff Attractions

Boasting amenities such as fitness facilities, complimentary self-parking, and barbecue grills, the Tunnel Mountain Resort offers a family friendly stay amid the majestic surroundings of the Banff National Park. When you’re ready to explore, you’ll find that popular attractions like the Canadian Ski Museum West and the Banff Centre are within easy reach.

On-Site Recreation

Sneak in a quick workout on the cardio machines and free weights in the hotel’s fitness room. Next, take a dip in the indoor heated pool. Or, relax in the warm waters of the whirlpool before enjoying a session in the sauna and steam room. Younger guests enjoy the fun playground and the nearby water slide. If you fancy a bike ride, swing by the hotel office to arrange a bicycle for hire. 

Plentiful Outdoor Activities

There are few better spots to get out and about to enjoy the great outdoors. Choose from activities such as rafting, golfing, and windsurfing, and don’t forget to fit in the area’s hot spots. Bathing in the Banff Hot Springs, a Gondola ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain, kayaking on Lake Minnewanka, and a trip to the Cave and Basin National Historic Site are all essential in Banff.

Local Dining

Although Tunnel Mountain Resort doesn’t have its own restaurant, you won’t go hungry. The Sleeping Buffalo Restaurant and Lounge, Cougar Pete’s Kitchen and Lookout, and the Storm Cellar Pub all lie within 100km of the hotel. Head into Downtown Banff for more options, such as the Grizzly House Restaurant and the Maple Leaf Grill. If you do want to eat in the hotel, several local restaurants offer a delivery service.

Choice of Lodgings

Tunnel Mountain Resort features a choice of lodgings: executive and studio suites, one-bedroom condos, one-bedroom apartments plus loft, and free-standing mountain cabins. Amenities vary according to the style you choose, but a balcony or patio, wood burning fireplace, individual climate control, and wireless Internet access are standard facilities.

The Bottom Line

While hotels such as Brewster’s Mountain Lodge and Bow View Lodge will place you right in the heart of the bustling downtown area, Tunnel Mountain Resort promises a quieter stay. The center of town can get a little noisy at night. The resort’s tranquil setting is just one of the reasons it’s a popular choice with families and those wanting to get away from it all.
