We wanted a nice getaway from the city back in May and needed a place for a group of 5. After reading about the reviews and that they had a cheaper rate due to the construction during that time, we decided to give this place a try.
The parking lot surrouding the place wasn't paved yet when we were there with construction equipments everywhere. Check-in went smoothly, and we got a free upgrade because the rooms that we originally booked were all taken (odd, but free upgrade!). Check-in went pretty smoothly. Our upgraded condo had 2 bedrooms (rather than 1 that we originally booked for), and it was one of those recent renovated ones too.
I agreed with other comments below than the place is smaller than what you see in the photos. Nevertheless, it was good enough for 5 of us to hang out at the place. 2 bedrooms on the main floor, living and dining room on the 2nd, and loft on the 3rd, + 2 full bathrooms.
We slept in the loft area that face the big window in the living room with no curtains. That becomes a problem in the morning because it was so bright in the room. The brightness in the room (good during the day) was more of an issue for us than hearing the train in the middle of the night whcih didn't bother us that much.
An interesting thing that happened in our unit was that there was water leaking from our kitchen ceiling from the bathroom upstairs whenever someone takes a shower. It got even worst in our 2nd night. It was supposed a newly-renovated 2-bdrm unit...a bit shocked from this...but the girl at the front was really nice when we reported it to her, and was very apologetic...it'd have been nice to offer a discount in return for this trouble tho...good thing the water leak was directly above the kitchen sink...otherwise, it would have been bad....
Other than our leaking ceiling...which I'm pretty sure it probably doesn't happen on a normal basis for a new unit. I would still recommend this place to other people. The view was nice by the hot tub. But it is indeed a pretty small one, and we opted for going to the Banff HotSprings instead during our stay there.
