    Great Experience

    We had our wedding of about 115 guests here at the Banff RMR on June 2, 2018 and we had 100% an extremely positive experience. We have to credit Lauren Fisher for most of this. She was our contact throughout and was amazing to work with. Always responded in a timely manner and kept us on track and organized with everything we needed to prepare. The day before the wedding we met with Lauren and the rest of the team to go over the day’s plan and ensure everything was in line. I thought this was very helpful and put our minds at ease. The venue was perfect for the kind of wedding we wanted. Ceremony outside and reception in the Grey Wolf Room. Food and drinks were great. They accommodated what we wanted for a specialty drink- which was excellent. Staff were incredible- so helpful and I felt went above and beyond for us. We were so happy and were able to relax and enjoy our day because of all the help we received.

    Stressless Wedding

    This was not our first choice but I am so glad we went with BRMR!! Lauren was very knowledgeable about everything during our showing of the venue the first time we saw it. She was friendly and genuine. Very helpful. She made sure planning at the venue was as stress free as possible. The staff at BRMR were also friendly and helpful.
    All of our guests enjoyed their time here as well.
    We would definitely go back again!

    The venue was fantastic. Had the ceremony and reception at the same venue, and the service was perfect. Staff were incredibly helpful and flexible to last minute changes. Worked with staff well ahead of the big day and created an elaborate foolproof plan. Food was terrific and accommodations were top notch. The best place in Banff to get married for a great price. Our wedding had 85 guests and we felt the venue was the perfect size for everyone. Thank you so much for the perfect day! Couldn't have asked for better!

    We booked our wedding with Banff Rocky Mountain Resort for this summer. We met Claire Young at the Calgary Wedding Show and planned to host our ceremony and reception on the property and have our guests stay the weekend. Lauren Fisher showed us the property and we decided this would be a great place to host our guests from Ontario as well as all of the wedding festivities. We discussed with Lauren during our initial meeting and several times over the phone and email that we would require guest rooms for our families coming from Ontario. It wasn’t until after we signed the contract that Lauren mentioned that they do not create room blocks and could not fit even half of our guests at the Banff Rocky Mountain Resort. We were misled and deceived throughout the process of planning our wedding and ended up cancelling with this resort. We felt that if we couldn’t trust the employees now, we didn’t want any more surprises along the way. We expressed our frustrations to Claire Young, Regional Sales Manager as well as the General Manager, Glen Dressler, with no acknowledgement from either. To top it off, they kept our $1,000 deposit, although we were deceived into thinking they could accommodate our guests, without so much as an apology. I am happier every day that we chose not to continue with this resort and we are spared the embarrassment of having our families flying out without the ability to stay at the resort.

    We would caution any potential Brides and Grooms of hosting a wedding or even an event at Banff Rocky Mountain Resort or with Banff Lodging Co (they have several properties run by the same employees). It appears that they are in it for themselves and truly do not care about their clients.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this review. There are always two sides to every story and we are quite shocked to have read this review as well. We did absolutely everything we possibly could do to accommodate this couple before and after the contract was signed. As you will see from our information, we clearly state all our services and policies and offer a ‘call us anytime’ policy to answer questions, address any concerns or provide additional information long before the contract is signed.
    This wedding was to take place over the August long weekend – a highly sought after date. Unfortunately, we had to disappoint and turn away several other Brides & Grooms, like you because the date had already been booked. When all our efforts to try to accommodate this couple were rejected, it became quite apparent, this couple changed their mind on what course they wanted to take for their wedding and while we were happy to accommodate them in canceling the contract for that date, the contract does state that the deposit is non-refundable. Had we not turned other Brides & Grooms away, that refund would have been refunded, which was made abundantly clear to this couple. This was additionally frustrating considering the Bride is an Event’s Coordinator at the Calgary Marriott Downtown Hotel and certainly was aware of the amount of time already put into this event and moreover the obligations of a confirmed signed events contract.
    We invite you to take a look at the rest of our reviews to really get a feel for how we operate and how much we truly do care for our wedding clients. Our goal is help make this once in a lifetime day in your life all you want it to be. We would love to hear from you and have that opportunity.
