We just returned from a week at the Banff Rocky Mountain resort. I was able to trade my timeshare for a week during Christmas which was a surprise in itself, but the resort also turned out to be much better than I expected. We were upgraded to a Wolf suite upon check in and the room was well designed and comfortable - even with two adults and several teenagers staying with us :) The kitchen was pretty well stocked, the bathrooms were clean a roomy and the beds were unbelievably comfortable. Best of all was the staff - they were friendly and helpful and pleasant to deal with -even if they would have rather been spending their Christmas elsewhere, they never let you feel like anything less than a valued guest. The resort was a short drive from downtown, but here is a shuttle and honestly we really enjoyed being away from the crowds. I wasn't expecting too much based on the age of the resort and some of the previous commenters, but I was thrilled with the resort and the accommodation and would love to return!
