Mixed feelings...a photo op for Instagrammers and nothing more.

Posted a longer review earlier but I don't see it anymore. To summarize without retyping the full review: The entire experience felt like a photo op for Instagrammers and nothing more. Don't waste your money. Certainly drive up the Icefields Parkway (it's beautiful) or hike up to the glacier on your own (very doable and FREE!), but we highly recommend returning to Banff for lodging. Unfortunately both the lodge and glacier experience felt like a tourist trap.

Too many things to mention. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful allowing us to do an early check-in because we arrived earlier than expected. So a shout out to him for all his help. The location of the hotel is on the top floor of the Glacier tour Centre, living at the edge of the glacier provides a breath-taking view especially sitting in the lounge. The welcome reception was a heart warming surprise. The room was very spacious and clean, the loft gave a bit of privacy. The bathroom was also spacious and well designed and maintained. I'd definitely stay here again next time I visit Banff/Jasper.

I would recommend staying two maybe even three nights, there is so much to do. There are several amazing hikes within short drives, better value than the organised trips as they’re free! highly recommended

Great location, stunning view, cozy lobby and clean room, we had two nights there and wished to stay longer. I loved the coffee a lot! My two kiddos spent a lot of time in the lobby area. This is our favorite stay in the trip.

Visited the lodge on the last weekend of the season. They were out of a few items in both restaurants due to the fact that they were closing until spring 2 days later. Modern rooms with all the commodities, very helpful and professional staff. Breathtaking views of the glacier. Great romantic getaway.
