We've stayed here a few times now - both in main hotel and in Swiss village next door. OK, it is not the Four seasons but, for the price you pay it has to be the best value in Banff for Skiing. (not sure about summer, have never been)
1-Large rooms - plenty of room for all your gear, or, in our case now, ski gear plus children.
2-The most amazing outdoor rooftop hot top. Easily surpasses others such as Fairmont in Whistler. Small indoor pool and hot tub. All good for aching muscles.
3-Friendly pub downstairs selling good beer and bar food & hockey on TV
4-First stop for ski bus so you always get a seat...also first stop on way home.
5- free shuttle to town stops outside. Pizza place and beer store across the road. Also AMAZING steakhouse (bumpers - eat in bar upstairs, its cheaper)
Downsides = I wouldn't bother with the restaraunt - bit pricey for what you get. It is a fair trek to town so you may want to get shuttle or factor in cabs for nights out. The rooms are dated - but it doesn't sell itself as a boutique hotel! You Pays your money takes your choice.
You may want to ask for a room near the hot tub as some are a fair trek from it. Or even a room near reception if thats what you want (reception is miles from hot tub though!)
On site ski room, rentals, servicing shop.
Wish I was going this year now having written that!
