We went here for a get away weekend - we've had much better experiences in Banff. We didn't expect 5 star for the price - we had a coupon for the weekend (glad for that!). We had a nice bottle of white wine and $25 credit to use at one of the restaurants.
Hotel is confusing to get around but we had our bearings near the end of our visit. Rooms are dated. Old carpet, half reno'd bathroom. The beds are old, you can tell by the stripes on the mattress and they threw a mattress topper over the old mattress that didn't even fit the mattress. There was a few inch ledge all around the mattress. Pillows were good.
We didnt have a good night sleep either night which is the least we expect. The heads of our bed were against the hallway wall so we could here EVERYTHING in the hallway. If you arent a skier getting up early in the morning you cant sleep in! You can hear talking, snow boots plodding down the hall, laughing. Very annoying. You can also hear people coming in at all hours.
We ate at pub downstairs, food was good and reasonable but be aware the Wildfire Grill upstairs has the same menu.
Didnt use the indoor hot tub but used the outdoor hot pools. The view is amazing. We went mid day hoping for no crowds but it was busy so not so fun.
Be aware that its a little jaunt to walk to downtown. In the summer no problem, winter a little much.
This hotel would be ok for a group that shares the cost of the room and isn't looking for anything too fancy and sleep is not a priority. If you get a good deal on it, you may be happy with it.
