Banff Hotels with Private Hot Tub
When it comes to Banff hotels with a private hot tub on tap, there’s a couple of options to consider. The first is the difference between a hot tub and a jacuzzi or jetted tub.
There are many hotels in Banff that offer jetted bathtubs or jacuzzi tubs. These are often located in the guest room or the guest bathroom, and feature jets or seats within the tub. Hot tubs are usually situated outdoors and aren’t drained like a bathtub. Private hot tubs are hard to find, but we’ve listed the options below.
