Our excursion to Banff included a quiet stay at the Rimrock Hotel. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful. They seem to go out of their way to grant your wishes. The better rooms had both a ever-changing view of the Banff valley, the far mountains and Mt Rundle. Eating on the small lounge terrace was exhilarating as you're one of three tables on a small balcony on the 7th floor. The food at the Eden was exquisitely presented and well worth the extras. Getting to town was effortless as the the ROAM bus stops in front of the hotel frequently. And when the rental car agency did not pick us up as expected, the Concierge provided their own transportation to town to pickup the car. We were able to walk up the road to the Tram that took us to the top of the mountain. From there, the 360 degree view was magnificent. Also up the road was the hot springs.
