If you’re driving to Banff from the Calgary International Airport, the trip is a short 1.5 hours.
If heading westbound on the #1 Trans-Canada Highway (from Calgary or Canmore), take the first exit into Banff (Banff Minnewanka Loop exit), make a left off the exit and then take the first road to the left (Tunnel Mountain Road), which runs beside “Banff Rocky Mountain Resort”.
If you are coming eastbound on the #1 Trans-Canada Highway (from Lake Louise), take the second exit into Banff, and then take the first left onto Tunnel Mountain Road.
You will see a sign that leads to “Tunnel Mountain Campgrounds.” Follow the road for about 10 minutes passing the campgrounds and we are the second hotel on the left.
