The Canadian Rockies are very very picturesque. I want to sing "The hills are alive with sound of music" most of the time, but I've heard my voice and didn't want to disturb the rest of the tourists. Banff is three blocks long and two and a half blocks wide and is overlooked by all the mountains you ever want to look at. But, be aware, the LOCALS told us, BANFF stands for Be Aware Nothing For Free. They weren't kidding! Actually I think Banff suffers from Gstaad-envy and want to charge like a Swiss.
Being a block and a half off the main street, the Bow Valley Lodge was a smaller room, with not air (we were in the middle of a heat wave) and could easily walk the town. The Safeway was two blocks away, as was the excellent Whyte Museum.
The room passed muster.
