Amenities include Ricky’s All Day Grill restaurant, a fitness centre, steam room, dry sauna and hot tub, underground parking, guest laundry facilities and ski lockers.

Michael Hannan, President of Brewster Travel Canada, said “The addition of the Banff International Hotel expands our share of rooms in Banff National Park, enhancing our ability to service tour operator and independent traveller needs.
