Driving Whistler to Banff in June/14

Four newbies will be driving from Whistler to Banff in late June/14 and would like to take the most scenic route and stop overnight for one night along the route. Can any of please advise the best route to take and where we should stop and suggested accommodations in that town or city? Thanks so much!

Hi there ~

With a one night stop on the way, you will be pretty much limited to Hwy 99 to Lillooet, then Hwy 1 to Banff. The most logical place to overnight is Kamloops, which is fine but not particularly suggested by those on this forum. You could 5 hours to Salmon Arm which would be prettier. Then you could drive the final leg of 4 or so hours to Banff. Make sure you allow 2 hours for Revelstoke and 2-3 hours for Emerald Lake and Takakkaw Falls in Yoho NP on the way to Banff. The Spiral Tunnel viewpoint as well, near Field.

On the forums, Hotel listings and reviews can found in the green menu bar on the specific city's forum. Here they are for Salmon Arm:
