stayed in the Rimrock twice in september 2013. The hotel is very well maintained, the staff is friendly and helpfull.
The location is close to the Banff Gondola and close to the Upper Banff Springs.
Yet its about 2-3 miles to downtown on a very steep road. A car is recommended though there is a bus-stop for the free Banff public transport at the hotel entrance.
Food was very good, yet the restaurant was a little expensive.
I enjoyed my stay in the Rimrock and will definitely come back
