My wife and I, as well as another close friend couple stayed here over Christmas for a getaway out of Calgary. The hotel is well appointment and quite nice but lacks the charm that the Fairmont Banff Spring brings. I suppose there has to be limitations as the Banff Springs is older and more prestigious.
We had all of our meals during our stay at the Primrose Dining Room. We had heard from others that while the Eden is the more eloquent of the two, that the overall dining experience is better in the Primrose. I would have to agree as I am not a fan of small portions for overpaid prices. I am past all that glory of pretending to be super rich.
The rooms are clean and the experience in the winter is great as you want to go to the hot springs which are a short walk away. Go first thing in the morning to warm yourself up and to avoid the bigger crowds in the evening (lots of skiers go after their time on the hill). Have the hotel call them and find out what time they open in the morning. It can be -30ºC outside but you'll be quite comfortable in the pool. Take coins for the locker and don't forget your swimsuit or towel and remember to leave your valuables at home.
We booked our package on the Expedia App on our iPad and got the best price this way during the holiday season. Try to get a package which includes parking (heated underground is available) and internet. Have a great time in Banff, it is definitely one of the gems in Canada.
