The restaurants here are also open to the public. Many events go on here, so check the schedule. Didn't realise how big some of the animals were until I saw them in this situation. Nicely laid out, well worth a visit.

A great conference venue. Excellent food, service and views. This was an ideal place to meet while allowing the family the opportunity to have fun at the same time.

what a great place to stay surrounded by snow capped mountains and is only a hours drive to lake Louise and the fairmont chateau. We spent 3 days in banff checking out the lakes and gondola ride up sulfur mountain. Plenty of shops and restaurants, although a little expensive but U expect that in a Alpine town

Cozy, beautiful, calm.. this is the typical image one already has about Canada. You can see its beautiful mountains with snow in the top, typical stores and a perfect weather. Everyone seems to be happy and calm. This was pretty much my favorite part of my year exchange in Canada, plus it has an awesome night life.
