We stayed here for one night in October 2011. I booked a Junior Executive Suite as it was a romantic getaway for my husband and I. I was thoroughly impressed with the hotel. Our suite was very tidy and roomy. Big bathroom with lovely spa bath and in the living room a cosy fireplace in the corner. We also loved the very comfortable king size bed and a lovely sitting area. We had a nice view overlooking the entrance to the hotel. My only complaint would be the iPod dock alarm clock.. we found it very hard to reset the time.. and we are pretty techy people I thought! I added a romance package that included a small bottle of sparkling and truffles as well as breakfast and secure undercover parking (under the building). We were delighted to find our windshield had been cleaned when we got to the car in the morning. A nice added touch.
Check in was easy. We loved the mineral spa - we had it to ourselves. Breakfast was yummy too. It was only a 10 minute walk to town - too easy. I thought that the Jr Exec Suite, with a romance package was much better value than the Banff Springs Hotel - plus you have the ability to walk into town. We did stay mid week just before winter ski season so perhaps that's why we enjoyed our stay so much.. we had the hotel to ourselves. I would stay again.
