Opened in June 2016, the Moose Hotel & Suites is the Banff Lodging Company’s newest hotel located a one-minute walk from the heart of downtown Banff. Designed in a comfortable mountain lodge style, this relaxed, upscale hotel features 174 guestrooms with balconies, from standard queen rooms with two beds to one and two-bedroom suites. Rooms include flat-screen TVs and tea/coffee-making facilities. The suites include kitchenettes with a microwave, mini-fridge, and sink, and separate living room with gas fireplace. Some suites have a double sofa bed. The Rooftop Health Club features two outdoor rooftop “hot pools” (warmer than heated pool) with views of the Canadian Rockies, indoor swimming pool, exercise room and sauna cabin, as well an onsite spa for mom and dad. The onsite Italian restaurant, Pacini, serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as late-night pizza, and offers a kids’ menu. Room service is available.

I stayed for 2 nights, and it was a great stay. The room was spacious with a kitchenette and balcony facing the main street. The amenities and toiletries in the room were satisfying, and there’s a laundry room at the basement. I had dinner at the hotel’s restaurant, and the meals were good.
Lovely large rooms (suites) - very comfortable with all facilities, good location along the main road with plenty of restaurants around, plenty of parking. The only disappointment was the restaurant- food could have been much better
