Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, Autograph Collection Hotel Review

Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, Autograph Collection is a popular hotel for the milesopedia community visiting the Banff area.

Rated Category 6 in the Marriott Bonvoy program, a one-night stay costs between 40,000 and 60,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.

I was able to get an excellent rate traveling during COVID-19 of about $250 per night, I preferred to pay for my stay using my Marriott Bonvoy American ExpressMD Card. So I got 5 Marriott Bonvoy points per dollar for my spending at this hotel.

Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, Autograph Collection is set back, and is ideal if you want to feel a bit far from the rest of the world. It takes about 50 minutes to get to Banff and 1 hour and 20 minutes to get to Calgary International Airport (YYC).

Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, Autograph Collection - Lobby

After parking, we arrived at the front desk of the Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, Autograph Collection.

We immediately notice (and love!) the warm mountain-type decor.

On the lobby level, you can access the Kananaskis Nordic Spa. Make sure you book a spot in advance. At the time of our visit, it was full.

Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, Autograph Collection - Room

Before arriving at the Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, Autograph Collection, I chatted on the Marriott Bonvoy app to get an upgrade, highlighting my Elite status.

From a standard room, my reservation was upgraded to a one bedroom loft with two queen beds. Perfect for this trip to the area with a friend.

The terrace of our room did not offer the most beautiful view, however.

Logs are available to light the fireplace, which is nice in the evening!

The gym is next to the pool and is rather small, especially during COVID-19 with limited access.

Because of COVID-19, service is done exclusively at the table. And the food is particularly tasty!

Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, Autograph Collection - Surroundings

A one-night stay at Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, Autograph Collection is too short to fully enjoy it. I recommend staying at least 2 to 3 nights.

This hotel was only a stop for us before going to discover Banff:
