Just spent 4 days skiing in Banff, what an awesome trip! This hotel was perfect for our needs. The location was fantastic, right in the heart of the "strip". The shuttle bus stop being right behind the hotel was great, after a long day of skiing who wants to have to walk far with equipment. We took advantage of their Snow Easy special which included skiing and a boxed lunch, this was a great deal! The only negative to this special is the shuttle bus is not included which I think should be. The room included in this package was a premium room located in the back of the hotel, which according to the other reviews was a good thing because it was quiet.
We had a issue with the deadbolt on our door not working but maintenance fixed it quite promptly. The wi-fi internet was not very good, we kept losing connection which was annoying because my daughter had an application to submit while away and she was getting quite frustrated with it.
There is a ski storage room for guests to use but the locks were very difficult to use so we just kept our equipment in our room.
The room itself was very spacious and clean. The view of Cascade Mountain was spectacular! The beds and pillows were very comfortable. Love the blackout curtains. There is a safe in the room, coffee maker and kettle. Unfortunately there is no fridge, we like to eat cereal for breakfast so we filled a garbage can with ice in order to keep the milk. A small fridge would have been nice.
Having a restaurant (Tony Roma's) right in the hotel was great, we had dinner one night and the breakfast buffet on the last morning. It's nice not to have to go outside when it's cold.
The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.
The Roam bus stops were right outside the hotel which made travelling by bus very easy. Overall this was a great trip and this hotel was perfect. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
