Alternative Hotels

In addition to the primary room block at the (highly recommended!) conference hotel, WWW2007 has secured overflow space at 10 other Banff hotels. These are all clean and comfortable hotels, with a variety of amenities. Room rates range from about $100 CDN per night to about $300 CDN per night. All hotel rates in 2007 are subject to 2% Tourism Improvement Fee (TIF), 4% Alberta Hotel Tax, and 6% Goods and Services Tax (GST).

Please book early! There are lots of hotels in Banff, but with WWW2007 and PIASS both taking place the same week, it could be hard to find a room!

The room release date for most of these hotels was April 5. What this means is that any empty rooms remaining on that date are released back to the hotel to sell to Banff tourists. Rooms will be available on a space available basis only. Please make sure that you have lined up a place to stay during WWW2007 before the rooms are released to the general public!

Update (April 21): The contracted release date for all remaining hotel properties is imminent. WWW2007 will be retaining only one overflow hotel, namely the Tunnel Mountain Resort, which currently has the most rooms remaining. WWW2007 attendees still looking for a hotel room are encouraged to try this one first. Note that bus transportation will be provided each morning from the Tunnel Mountain Resort to the conference hotel (Fairmont Banff Springs).

This page summarizes the important information for each hotel, including the room rate and the number of rooms available for WWW2007. When making a reservation, please identify yourself as a WWW2007 attendee to receive the correct rate. Please visit the individual hotel Web sites for additional information.

The following list is in increasing order of distance from the WWW2007 conference hotel. Please note that the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel is on one side of the Bow River, while all other hotels (and the main Banff townsite) are on the other side of the river. Walking time could be 30 minutes or more to get to or from the conference hotel. Banff transit service is available from some hotels.
