Overview of Elk + Avenue Hotel

162 Rooms
1.75 hours Transfer time
Room only Board basis

A fantastic location in the heart of Banff in Canada, the Elk + Avenue hotel is two blocks from the downtown centre so easy walking distance to the best dining, shopping and nightlife Banff has to offer. And the bus stop to take you to the mountains each day is just a minute walk away, so you won't have to compromise on your time skiing!

In 2016 they renovated the Banff International Hotel into what is now known as Elk + Avenue (on the corner of Elk Street and Banff Avenue). The design is simple and modern with the lounge area maintaining a definite mountain feel with vintage imagery and great swathes of wood. The renovation also brought the wellness area with a sauna, steam room and hot tub. And let's not forget Ricky's All Day Grill for some seriously hearty breakfasts (and lunch/dinner for that matter).

If you're looking for perfectly situated and contemporary accommodation for a Canadian ski trip, you've found the perfect place.
