My family of four will be driving up from MT for a two night stay in the Banff area before heading to the Calgary Marriott for a conference in August of 2007. I am looking for recommendations for a mid to upper scale lodge or hotel in the area. My budget is probably centered around the $200 US per night range give or take. We have two children ages 5 and 9. Prefer a mountain setting rather than downtown type area, but easy access to town.
Also, as I am just starting my research, any insights regargding the hot pools and other activies in the area that are a must do would be appreciated.
Thanks for your help
