CALGARY — Moxy Banff, developed in partnership with Drumheller, Alta.-based company, Canalta Hotels, has officially opened.

“As an Albertan-owned company, we’re thrilled with the opportunity to partner with Moxy Hotels, an industry-leading brand that brings both bold design and energetic atmosphere to the naturally beautiful and vibrant community of Banff, Alta.,” says Brooke Christianson, VP, Canalta Hotels.

This addition to Banff Avenue is the result of a significant renovation to Banff, Alta.’s first commercial motor hotel originally constructed in 1964. Moxy Banff pays homage to the historical architecture and community roots with a bold mid-century design featuring expansive rundle-stone walls and unique precast guest wings that flank the lobby lounge and Bar Moxy.

Moxy Banff boasts 109 guestrooms with smart layouts and retro-ski vibes, featuring toe-to-toe beds, double bunks, kitchenettes or lock-off suites that turn two rooms into one.

Guests can expect a variety of food choices including fresh-made all-day offerings from a restored 1966 VW Kombi food truck, signature Bar Moxy menu items including the Alberta Brisket Poutine, flatbreads and Reuben sandwich, a variety of food options during breakfast and après snacks.

Moxy Banff also offers several social spaces including a year-round heated courtyard with two hot tubs perfect for social events during any season and a two-in-one lobby and lounge that offers a selection of food-and-beverage options. For guests looking to hit the slopes or trails, a 24/7 ski, board and bike locker room is available for self-storage and repairs.

The Moxy team tapped Calgary artist Kirsten Bollen to design a circular mid-century mountain landscape that adorns the lobby and Edmonton artist Tanya Klimp to design large-scale abstract murals featured in both of the hotel’s grand staircases.

“Re-developing this property has allowed us to invest in Alberta and specifically into the town of Banff,” says Christianson. “Our team is proud to have worked with talented Albertans, creating new economic opportunities for our province and groovy experiences for guests.”
