Our family of 14 just returned from a great week at the Rimrock. As we arrived when the TransCanada Hwy. was closed between Calgary and Banff due to the flooding, it was a challenge just to get there.
We chose the Rimrock due to the many favorable reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. For us, the location was perfect. It was close enough to town so that we could either take the ROAM bus or walk along the trail which led from the hotel down the mountain (always rode the bus up, however), yet far enough away that we could just "experience the Rockies".
The rooms were spacious, most had beautiful mountain or valley views, and a few had balconies (exp. Rm 469)
The staff was exceptional. I don't think I met anyone in 8 days who seemed unhappy to be working (and that is rare in any industry). The concierge staff were extremely helpful and never seemed too busy to make reservations or to give suggestions for activities. The bell staff at the front door always had a nice greeting and seemed genuinely interested in their guests.
The kids in our group loved the good-sized pool and enjoyed running around on the grass outside.
Primrose was good, but not really a "family" restaurant...better for tour groups with adults. We sometimes ate in the Larkspur (bar) area, but mainly went into town. There was a Starbucks up at the Gondola which made some of our group very happy (short walk - opens at 8 in the morning).
This was a hotel to which we'd all love to return.
