“Made our ski trip some much better”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

We booked in here as part of a last minute deal, one of the only places offering a room with a kitchen within our budget. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which to our surprise had a full sized kitchen. Rooms clean and newly renovated. You are a little way out of town, but the shuttle service is great, especially for those of us that didn't have a car. The resort is also one of the major stops for the us to Lake Louise and Sunshine. They also have fantastically cheap international call rates from the rooms.

Stayed March 2013, traveled as a couple

5stars. Clean rooms friendly staff and a short drive into downtown banff, shuttle service is a plus since there is not much parking on the weekend. Love the pool. In the suites you can light a fire.
As well as a deck where you can BBQ. 3 things I would change a newer shuttle(the one they have is dirty and broken) educate the staff on tourist attractions and update the pool change room, because there are too many mirrors and no privacy.
Would recommend

My wife and I really enjoyed staying in then upper level 2 bedroom condo with our dog and friends. The condo was newly renovated and had excellent cooking supplies.

The food the hotel offered was great and the service for the wood was fast and reliable.

Other areas of service were not the best. Although I understand this is Banff and not everyone is the most professional. We had a very rude employee talk to us while we were enjoying the hot tub facilities.

The location is a downside but we loved being outside the city with our dog.

Overall we had a great stay and we look forward to staying there again!

We always book in the condo side of this property. The last time we were here was 15 years ago, so I was hopeful that the property had been well maintained. It was awesome! Loved it 100%. One of my favorite places to go.

This property is in the National Park, so the rooms are small (just keep that in mind). But they are very well appointed. Beds sleep great. Shower upstairs is spacious (with the rounded curtain bar). Well appointed kitchen with plenty to cook in. Full size refrigerator.

I just love this place. If you go expecting a rugged experience (after all you must be there for the outdoors...not for hanging out in your room), you will have a fantastic time.

There is a hiking trail right beside the resort (Tunnel loop). It's a little hard to find the start of the trail, but it's worth it. Find my review to read about the highlights of this trail.

I certainly got my money's worth staying in this excellent hotel with courteous staff. The only downside is that it is about 7 minutes drive to downtown Banff unlike the other jokes in Banff which is right on the heart of the town. But they have shuttle buses to take you around.

The Banff Rocky Mountain Resort is a little gem! Our reservation was made with great ease and terrific service direct to the Resort's toll free line. At check-in Kathryn, from Halifax, was pleasant, welcoming and very helpful. She was a terrific first impression of the resort and made this quick little family get away extra special by providing us with an upgrade and gave the kids each a welcome package of crayons and a coloring book. Thank you Kathryn! Our 2 bedroom condo was a great fit for the 4 of us. The room was very clean, and provided lots of room and comfort. There was a kitchen complete with toaster, dishes, bowls and cleaning supplies. The 2 bedrooms had comfortable beds and blankets but they are a little small if you like to have some room for suitcases, etc. It would also be nice to have a full length mirror in the condo. 2 bathrooms is always a plus, especially since the downstairs bathroom also includes a nice shower. The soap was from the Rocky Mountain Soap company which is a great local business and nice to see supported in the hotel. The sofa sleeper makes this a condo that easily sleeps 6. The wood fireplace is a great added bonus, especially with the snow falling, even in April! The $7 wood bundle was more than adequate as it came with kindling, paper and lots of dry wood. It was also delivered before we even got into our room. Great service! It would have been helpful to have matches as part of the bundle though. The pool area is good for the kids and having an outdoor hot tub is great, except for the couple who felt obliged to smoke their cigarettes on the patio right next to the hot tub. The planters are not an ashtray folks! The change rooms were a little dirty and the towels are almost at the point of needing replacement but those are minor issues. Lots of foam on the indoor hot tub and the jets kept going on and off, so may be some things to look at. There were many dogs at the resort but we didn't hear any noise nor did we see any big messes. The resort is spread out but it only takes a few minutes to reach the main hotel housing the pools, restaurants & main desk. The staff were friendly and efficient at check out. The resort is outside of the town center but they offer a shuttle service and it is an easy drive into town. We were also given a coupon book that offered some great discounts on food and merchandise in town. If we were staying for a longer time, it would be nice to have a TV with DVD player and a second hairdryer in the downstairs bathroom. It would also give me seating room in the living room if the TV was replaced with a flat screen. Overall, this was a great place to stay in the winter but we hope to bee back in the summer when we can make use of the tennis courts.

Room Tip: The upper 2 bedroom condo didn't have a great view of the mountains but it was quiet. The 1700...

Stayed 5 nights at the 4BR wolf condo. They only have two of these large condos at this property. This was an excellent condo. The place was recently renovated and had comfortable beds and was very quiet. The kitchen was well equipped. The staff is quite prompt they brought us extra blankets upon request and a second hair dryer. We had maid service every day. There is a larger gym on the property which we did not use. There are decent laundry facilities in the main building which we did use. They were clean and well maintained. Change is provided by the bar next door. The pool and hot tub were mobbed by kids and families when we were there so we did not use them. The condo itself was very nicely decorated in knotty wood and the wolf motif both on the walls (pictures of wolves) and the cabinet handles (wolf-shaped). The walls were a little thin we could hear a bit from the condo next door but it was not a huge problem. Overall an excellent place to stay in the cold season in Banff.

Room Tip: The wolf condos are newly renovated and very nice.
