Pets are welcome in the hotel with a one-time cleaning fee of $50 CAD* per day – up to a max of $100 for two pets.

Pets must be supervised at all times and be on a leash in public areas. Pets are not permitted in hotel restaurants or aquatic facilities; dogs are allowed on outdoor patios.

Our SPCA Partnership

$15 of our cleaning fee will be donated to the local Bow Valley SPCA, Canada’s only no-kill, no-cage adoption centre. Service dogs are always welcome at no charge.

Pet-Friendly Amenities

To help keep your furbaby comfortable during their stay, we provide dog beds, bowls with fresh water and a welcome gift!

Should a pet’s behaviour cause disruption and we are unable to contact the guest after reasonable attempts, the pet will be safely removed from the guest room by hotel staff. For the safety of your pets and the local wildlife, dogs are required to be on leash in Banff National Park and within the Town of Banff. Pet-sitting services are available if booked 24 hours in advance through our babysitting service provider. Additional charges will apply.

OFF-LEASH DOG PARK

Banff has two off-leash dog parks. One is located in the industrial district on Hawk Ave. and compound Rd., a 2.8 km walk from downtown Banff. The other is located at the Recreation Grounds off Sundance Road near Banff Trail Rider stables, a 2 km walk from downtown Banff. Both off-leash areas can be accessed by vehicle and have on-site parking spaces.
