This week’s value tip comes from Brenda Rae Weniger about the Bow View Lodge in Banff, Alberta.

The Bow View Lodge is the best kept secret in Banff, Alberta. Located just a short drive away from Calgary, this tiny, quiet spot is tucked behind the Banff Park Lodge and if you can snag a room on the river side, you’ll have an amazing view of the emerald green water, green forest and, of course, the mountains.  Your room key takes you into the pool and steam room as well as the other facilities available at the Banff Park Lodge.

More about the Bow View Lodge

Located right beside the Bow River, the Bow View Lodge is only a short walk from Banff’s downtown shops and restaurants. Amenities include free wireless Internet, free parking, ski storage, and all guests of the Bow View Lodge have access to the amenities at their sister lodge, the Banff Park Lodge. Here guests can use the pool, steam room and exercise facilities or grab dinner at one of the two on-site restaurants. With three great ski hills in the area—Lake Louise, Mt. Norquay and Sunshine—this lodge also offers custom ski packages.
