We stayed at the Banff Rocky Mountain Resort for a weekend in late November. We had a one bedroom with a kitchenette and a wood burning fireplace. The bedroom and living space were small but immaculate. The Kitchenette was surprising large with granite countertops and well stocked with cooking supplies (pots, dishes etc.).
We loved the wood burning fireplace but did find the firewood a bit pricey ($9 and we burned it all in one evening). The couch was a bit uncomfortable but the bed was really comfortable.
The resort is just outside the town site of Banff, which is great if you want some quiet and quick access to nature. They have a free shuttle bus that will take you downtown, but if you have a car parking is free in Banff and the town is relatively easy to navigate. I would recommend a trip to Cave and Basin and the Banff upper hot springs while in Banff. If your budget allows ($$$) Sunday brunch at the Banff Springs Hotel is very good.
