    About

    Location. On the slopes of the Canadian Rockies overlooking Banff, Alberta, in Banff National Park is the Buffalo Mountain Lodge, an ideal getaway for couples, outdoor adventurers and families near pristine waterfalls, lakes and plenty of biking, hiking and skiing nearby. Guests are less than one kilometer from photo opportunities of the hoodoos, sandstone rock formations caused by resistance to erosion. Outdoor adventurers are near Upper Hot Springs, Sulphur Mountain Gondola, Lake Minnewanka and Bow Falls.

    Property Features. The Buffalo Mountain Lodge's main building complements the natural setting with square timber, post and beam construction, high open ceilings, copper and glass light fixtures, and custom cherry, pine and bent-willow furnishings. Guests can enjoy the hotel's fitness equipment, spa tub, 24-hour business center, complimentary wireless Internet access, meeting and banquet facilities, in-room childcare services, and airport transportation and ski shuttles. Visitors seeking unique dining experiences can enjoy room service or the hotel's main dining room, which serves Rocky Mountain cuisine such as roasted wild game, fresh indigenous berries, and wild mushrooms and mixed grains. The hotel's Cilantro Mountain Café features local wild game with rustic Californian flavors and Native American influences.

    Guestrooms. The two-story Buffalo Mountain Lodge features 108 guestrooms with mountain lodge-style décor, wood- burning fieldstone fireplaces, Internet access, cable television and coffeemakers. Select guestrooms have firewood replenished daily and feature heated slate bathroom floors and old-fashioned claw-foot bathtubs. Guestrooms overlook the nine acre site on top Tunnel Mountain.
