As a bride with a special diet requirement (celiac disease) I wanted a venue and chef who understood that! My guests commented a dozen times on how spectacular the food was.
The hotel staff were amazing too. We had so much fun in the pool too.

Great place for a wedding

We had our wedding there, this past weekend and it was wondering. The staff was very helpfully and accommodating, especially the bell boys, they were amazing. The food for our receptions was amazing. The buffet for breakfast was not my favorite. That does need a little work. Besides that, best experience ever.

One of the best decisions we made for our wedding day!

We had our wedding reception at Banff Park Lodge and the venue, service, and communication were unbeatable. The location close to downtown is phenomenal, and the prices on both the rooms for guests and venue space were extremely reasonable. Everything was incredibly clean, and the front desk and concierge staff were helpful and friendly. The event staff was communicative and very easy and pleasant to work with in the lead-up to the event, and very amenable when we had to delay a year due to COVID. The food and service at the dinner were amazing, and all our guests enjoyed the food and space. We had an amazing day and are so grateful to everyone at BPL for making it so great! I would recommend this as a venue to anyone looking for a wedding space in Banff!

Banff Park Lodge was a beautiful spot to host our reception. We dealt with Wanda and she was extremely prompt and professional. They were very upfront with costs and the breakdown of our bill was extremely detailed. The hotel is a little dated; however the ball rooms have large windows that display the gorgeous Rocky Mountain views. Price was very reasonable for a Banff Wedding.
