We spent one night here in June 2012 on the way back from our trip to Alaska. We had no reservations but were able to get a room when many places in Banff were booked. It is outside of town high on a hill overlooking Ca. 1 and Banff. The room rates were very reasonable and the rooms were spacious and very clean. The rooms had an iside door to the hallway and an outside door to a wooden patio for each room. The view from inside and ouside was fantastic with snow covered peaks in all direction. We saw deer and elk from the patio outside of our room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would deffinitely stay here again. On of the favorite hotels on our trip.
