I was on the top floor and the noise of the heating system made it hard to sleep.
The beds were pillowtop, but they were still hard (if you're a side sleeper your arms and hips will be sore come morning)

Rimrock is a go to place in Banff. Great hotel, spectacular views, friendly staff. Come here to be pampered, to wind down, relax, enjoy. You could stay in the hotel for a few days and not get bored, tired of the food or feel like...More
This was an amazing weekend. Everyone was so friendly and the food was amazing. The view from our room was just fabulous and the parking was underground and heated which was a total bonus. We will definitely be coming again in the new year.

You can walk on some trails in the woods nearby, and two major attractions (Banff Hot Springs and the Banff Gondola) are also within walking distance. There’s a short walk around the top of the Gondola station and more trails through the forest on the mountainside, but I don’t think they’d be the kinds of scenic day hikes you’d be looking for.
Don’t worry about accessing nature though, even without a car you can take a bus into town (runs every 20 mins, free, stops right out front of the hotel) or rent a car (highly recommended) to access countless spectacular nature hikes and excursions in Banff/Lake Louise/Jasper parks. Even walking along the river in Banff town and the trails around the town itself are amazing, and as mentioned that’s an easy bus ride or 5-min drive. Parking can be a minor annoyance in Banff in peak season but it’s usually free (or cheap) and not a big deal.
Consider the Fairmont for luxury and closer access to town and nature, but I preferred the Rim Rock rooms to the tiny Fairmont ones, so unless they’re similar in price the Rim Rock is definitely best in Banff (for luxury resort/full amenities hotels, anyway).
