I would highly recommend this resort if you are planning on paying a visit to Banff. My husband and two teenage children spent two wonderful nights at the hotel. We ate dinner at the Primrose restaurant one night, and the food was excellent. We especially liked the fact that they offerred an assortment of citrus fruit to add to your water, and the views from the restaurant were amazing. The hotel is a short drive to town. We had a car so we drove, but if you don't have a car it is no problem as there is a bus service into town. The bus stop is right in front of the hotel and the hotel provides free bus passes. Also, the Banff Gondola and the Hot Springs are a short walk away. The hotel gym is fairly well appointed with free weights, weight machines, bikes, elipticals, and treadmills. My daughter and I also had deep tissue massages at the spa. We both enjoyed them very much. One small negative the wifi service was expensive and it worked very poorly. So if you need reliable internet access this hotel may not be for you.
