Our party of 4 stayed at the Banff Rocky Mountain Resort for 2 nights during a recent skiing trip in January. We had one of the Wolf units on the ground level. The unit had 1 bedroom, full kitchen and a small living area with a sofa bed. Our unit was very nice and appeared to have been recently renovated. Two flat screens TV's are provided and there's a nice assortment of TV channels available. The bathroom was clean and modern with nice fixtures and good towels.
The bed in the bedroom was very good with nice linens and pillows. It's worth noting that the living area is very small so when the sofa bed is pulled out it's a very tight fit. It works well for children but adults will be very cramped for space. There's also a small dining table but with only 2 chairs.
It's a busy resort and many travellers appear to be larger groups or families with children so noise can be an issue. You can definitely hear people in the unit above you or when people are going up and down the stairs, so if you're after peace and quiet, it will be the "luck of the draw" on how noisy your neighbours are. There's also a freight train that runs through the area and I heard it both nights that we were there, friday and saturday.
We had a nice stay because the price was reasonable for our party of 4 but our Wolf unit was a tight fit for 2 adults and 2 older children. Note also that the resort is actually located just outside of the Banff townsite so it's about 3.5 kilometers to downtown Banff.
