This was an RCI stay for us, and we loved it! We had a 2 BR unit upstairs for my husband, mom and me. Kitchen was very nice. Unit was immaculately clean. Bedrooms are small, but worked for us. Ventilation in upstairs bedrooms could be better... we opened the window a bit, which might not be practical year round. They had lots of activities available... walks ranging from easy to difficult, movies, board games, kids' activities. We went on the historical walking tour which was wonderful. Based on what we learned there, we decided to visit the Whyte Museum, which we loved. We made good use of their shuttle... runs on the hour 11am to 11pm and picks up from the back of Mt. Royal hotel at :15 past each hour. Pool and hot tub were great! There is one computer for public use downstairs in the restaurant. My only complaint: this property is as far from "handicapped accessible" as possible. Stairs to 2nd floor unit (all 2 BRs are 2nd floor), then stairs inside unit to both bedrooms. In the lobby bldg, stairs downstairs to the computer, the pool and the minimally used restaurant. Same in town... many businesses, such as restaurants and salons, require steps and don't have elevators. Best bet for accessible restaurants... those on Bear St. (Bear St. Tavern, Wild Flour, etc.) and Old Spaghetti Factory in Clock Tower Mall.. up escalator or elevator 2 levels). I was able to handle the stairs but noticed it and felt it. Overall, a very enjoyable stay, and I'm glad I was physically able to do this.
