I booked to stay here because it was my first visit to Banff and I wanted to experience the views in full effect. We payed extra for a mountain view room and it was definitely worth it. I booked through the hotel directly which I would highly recommend as they are helpful and will give you the best deal around. The bed was very large and comfortable, the room was clean and modern (bathroom wasn't amazing but I am aware they are doing these up.) They mentioned their might be noise from 8am due to construction but I never heard or witnessed any of it. There is a good selection of bars and eateries. Love the decor of the hotel and the shuttle bus availability. I was surprised by the lack of grandness and slight messiness of the check in/concierge counter area (that's just me being picky and ocd though). Would visit again.
