Banff Accommodation
Economy - Style is Possible!


Did I say Banff accommodations economy style? Yup. I know, you don't want to break the bank, but you do want to enjoy your hotel as much as the rest of your holiday.

How can you do that in Banff? Well, cheer up. What do you require in an accommodation? Maybe you'd like to do some cooking and/or eat breakfast in with your family - kitchenette suites are great for that. Beds? Well, they are a given. Spa? You can always go out and get that if the budget allows!!
Here are some great places to stay at prices that aren't outrageous.
