Best things about resort: Close-by wildlife meant the herd of Elk grazed within the resort grounds last Tuesday! The beds were so comfortable, we slept like little children.
Best attractions or restaurants nearby:The entire town of Banff is available within a 5 minute drive. 3 ski areas within 45 minutes. Don't miss the drive up the Bow Valley Parkway and the walk up Johnston Canyon.
What this resort has that others do not is a superb staff. They went beyond polite in everything, making sure we were comfortable and there was nothing else we needed. Room service was not delicious, but it was delivered by the cook! The travel desk was staffed by a resident who really knew the area and listened to us before making recommendations. The huge outdoor hot tub was a social place where guests exchanged adventure stories and was a place to learn about what not to miss in the area. The rooms are small and far from fancy and there is no way that 6 people could sit down to dinner at the same table, but they were fully and comfortably furnished - there's even a pantry in the Kitchen. The beds had pillowtops on the matresses and the pillows were large and plentiful. We appreciated the very nice upstairs full bath, though the shower door on the downstairs bath did not keep water off the floor. This is a well-planned and well-placed resort that knows how to make people comfortable and we highly recommend it.
