The resort is nice, quiet, has in an indoor pool, indoor hot tub, and a nice and very hot hot tub outside. This resort has great customer service, if you need something they will bring it to you and help you out all most instantly.
I stayed in a one bedroom suite, which had a bit of a hard bed, and needed some serious renovations (some rot in the bathroom, peeling wall paper in the unit, paint patch marks etc).
I understand some of the units have been renovated, so maybe try and request one of those if you can. The unit came with a fully function kitchen, (which is a great feature as you will go broke eating out in Banff except maybe at Spaghetti Factory) with all pots and utensils, only thing missing is no stove (only a stove top).
The resort itself was in decent/good shape, but could also use some upgrading and renos too. Most resorts offer free wireless internet, but not here.
The shuttle bus was a great feature as finding parking in Banff can be a headache at times, once I took the shuttle bus in town, and instead of taking it back decided to walk which takes about 40 minutes.
Quick tip for travelers, don't forget that 10 minutes east of Banff is a bigger town called Canmore with bigger grocery stores and not so inflated prices... albeit the restaurants were equally overpriced.
In conclusion, with some upgrading of the resort, and further renovations of the units, this resort has the potential to be one of the best places to stay in Banff given all the features, amenities, and spectacular customer service!
