-Underground heated parking (you do have to pay but I had a package deal that included parking)
-Bus stop right out front of the hotel to go downtown. This was super easy even with an 8mth old in a stroller. Very convenient and no stress about finding parking downtown.
-Easy check out from t.v. in room and we were able to see our bill at anytime using the t.v.
-Elevators can be slow and are old. The south wing elevator smelled like propane a lot of the time when catching it from the 4th floor.
-Super expensive movie rentals. One movie was 16.99!! That is more than going to the movie theatre to see a 3D movie. They did have some for 4.99 but nothing we wanted to see.
-Carpet is a bit dated
-Good view (room 479)
-Close to spa/pool
-Had two sinks
-They brought a playpen for our daughter to sleep in and it was clean and in good condition
-In room safe to put valuables
-Was cold until we figured out how to turn off the fan that was blowing cold air onto the bed. Once the fan was off it was a little hot but we just turned the fan back on to cool it off a bit.
-One of our sinks wouldn't drain
-Bathroom is small and the shower head was lower than expected but these weren't that much of an issue
-Good hours of service
-Pool was a little cold when we went around 8pm but seemed warmer the next morning when we went around 10am
-Not crowded (Not sure how it would be during high season or weekends. We went mid week and there were only 2 other people swimming)
-As stated above pool felt a little cold when swimming after 8pm
-A little small if it had been busy
-It was closed when we were there but the food was being served at the Larkspur. We ordered the Chicken Pesto pasta and it was absolutely terrible. It was ridiculously over priced and we were very disappointed!
-We also ordered a chocolate milkshake and it was basically just cold milk. It didn't taste like chocolate and was a very thin consistency and not worth the $8.00 charge.
-Excellent food (we had the Rimrock burger and it was absolutely delicious). The fries were excellent as well
-Good service and beautiful view
-Food was well priced, about the same cost as eating at an Earls
Traveling with an 8month old to this hotel:
-Restaurant and staff were helpful with the baby (playpen for baby to sleep in provided and they had high chairs/booster seats at the restaurant)
-Parking was heated and underground which helped with the cold weather
-Baby was able to use the pool
-In hotel convenience store if you need to purchase items
-Fridge in room to put baby food and formula in
-Walking distance to the Gondola and the Hot Springs. We didn't have to spend time strapping the baby into her carseat to get to the hot springs. We just put her in her stroller and we were there in less than 10 minutes.
-Finding a bathroom to change baby in. The Primrose had a very nice bathroom with a change table. However, the night that it was closed I had difficulty finding a washroom with a change table. I ended up having to change my baby on the floor of the washroom.
We would definitely stay at this hotel with our baby again! I was worried about how far from downtown Banff it was with a baby. However, with the free bus pass provided and the bus stop right outside the hotel door it was super easy. I would recommend bringing an umbrella stroller rather than a full size stroller.
