Not bad, but not great I guess is how I'd put our stay! We usually rent a house or go for larger accommodation options, but since there were only 5 of us on this trip we decided to book the Tantalus' 2-Bedroom Premier Suite. Tantalus is about a 5 minute walk to the Village, but note that it is uphill and the sidewalk shares a bike path. Most of the time we walked up the hill and then cut through the Westin to escape from cold nights.
Although our suite was labelled as being on the '5th' floor, you actually enter on the 4th. It can be a long walk around the corridors as was the case for us. When you enter the suite, you have to go up a long flight of stairs. Temperature in our suite seemed a bit off as well as when you enter on the 4th floor it's nice and cool, then as you go up to the 5th, it's pretty warm. We tried adjusting the thermostats as there's one in every room, but that didn't seem to change anything.
We were only staying one night (took the Rocky Mountaineer) so for one or two nights it would be completely fine. The Master has a King Sized Bed with ensuite, the second room has two twin beds, then there's also a pull-out in the living room and another washroom, kitchenette and balcony.
We did notice a lot of rooms on the 4th floor seemed to be hosting either stag/stagettes or big parties. The doors were unlocked and people were coming and going from them. Maybe because our suite's stairs went up to the 5th floor the noise wasn't an issue though? Not sure how it would be on the other floors though.
We didn't use any of the amenities as the weather wasn't right for it. There's a pool, hot tub and tennis court. Front Desk wasn't overly friendly, but allowed us to store our luggage on check-in and check-out .
We got a really good deal on the suite through a friend, but had we not, I would probably book elsewhere.
