- Outdoor social gatherings are limited.
- Masks are required in all public indoor spaces and in designated outdoor spaces in Banff along Banff Avenue and through the downtown shopping district.

Pools, Hot Tubs, Saunas, Fitness Rooms
As of Feb 11th, our pools and hot tubs were permitted to open with strict provincial capacity restrictions in place. This will make it difficult to accommodate every guest group when our hotels are busy. We cannot guarantee that every guest group will have access to our pools/hot pools! We will use an appointment system with scheduled time slots for cohort groups. Pool and hot pool bookings will be made on a same-day basis, in person through the front desk; information will be provided upon check-in at your hotel.
Pool and hot pool use is subject to change at any time, including last minute closure of any amenity.
It is not an ideal situation but we will do our best to adapt and accommodate as many people as possible!
Retail, Attractions, and Other Services
- Retail businesses remain open with reduced capacity to 15% occupancy.
- Calling a business ahead to understand hours of operation and unique protocols in advance is recommended.
