This trip was our second time in Canmore. We were looking for a nice, family friendly place to stay that had a lot of room and full kitchen. Blackstone was the right choice for that. We considered staying at other hotels, but the pool was key. It was very nice, clean, and good water temperature. The hot tubs were great. Although there were a lot of children it never was too loud or crowded. The room configuration was excellent. The kids bedroom was on the opposite end of the room and they had there own bathroom. Quality of furnishings and linens were nice. The bed was very comfortable. Washer and dryer was essential for that type of trip. Close enough to town as long as weather was nice. Hotel located about six blocks from town. It was in an area with many other similar condo-style accomodations. The front of hotel faces Three Sisters Mountain which offered beautiful views. Would definitely recommend to friends and family, and stay there again if in Canmore. GREAT value!
