I wanted to write this review since I myself had a really hard time finding any info/pics of this particular suite when I booked it. When I'm looking for a hotel I really prefer modern decor to anything traditional. In Banff, a room with modern touches is very hard to find as I realize most people appreciate decor which is in tune with the local feel and more inspired by nature. This room was exactly what I was looking for, it was huge and modern and did not dissapoint. As far as I can find, it is a one of a kind in both this particular hotel as well as the area in general.
That said, the hotel itself is dated, and the first impression based on the lobby and the hallway to this room are not great at all....to the point that I was a little worried at first. But once inside the suite it was fantasic. There is a huge bathroom, which is divided into two parts - toilet/sink with door and also a large two person shower, counter, and another sink. There is a kitchen and dining area, large livingroom with 2 couches, and of course 2 queen beds. I should also note that one entire wall is windows, and within 10 mins of checking in we had 2 deer standing right outside. The only thing that was a little off is that there was a slight metalic smokey smell in the room, not sure what that could be from but it was a little like the smell of a burnt vacum cleaner belt and it lingered the entire stay. The pool area at the sister property across the parking lot was newly reno'd/updated lovely as well.
