Don't be fooled by the negative reviews on this site... this resort is great. True, it is outside of Banff, but it is extremely close. You could probably walk there if you like the outdoors! It's about a 2-3 minute drive to Banff from the resort. Busses pick up from the resort to Lake Louise, Sunshine, and Norquay directly so you don't even have to worry about driving. My boyfriend and I stayed in the One Bedroom Condo with in suite kitchen, and it was absolutely perfect for us! The wood burning fireplace was definitely a plus. It is true that you have to walk from your room to the lobby where the hottub is, but is that really a big deal? You are going to hottub, chill out! The outdoor hot tub is big and really nice. This resort is different from the ordinary hotel; I love that it had seperate buildings and seemed more like lodging. Just one warning: request the top level of the place you will be staying. We were on the floor level and could hear people walking around upstairs. But we were up early to snowboard so it didn't really bother us!
