We stayed three nights at this very nice, high-end hotel located in a beautiful area near Banff. It is a short walk to the gondola lift and hot springs bath. At the time we were there...they offered free rides to Banff via public bus. All you needed to do was show the bus driver your room key card. You were picked up in front of the hotel and dropped off at a couple of different locations in town (they had a schedule card for you to keep and times are also listed in town). This was a nice option since parking in Banff can be a challenge at time. Note: the bus doesn't run late into the night...I believe the last pickup was around 8:00 p.m.
Our room had a partial view and was very nice. When we first checked in our A/C wasn't working properly but they sent maintenance to our room immediately. The repair took about 10 minutes and while fixing our problem...the repairman gave us many helpful and interesting tips/info. It is pricey to stay here but I felt we got our money's worth. The only let-down was that you had to pay an additional charge to park your car (about $15 a day for self parking...they also offer valet parking at a higher cost). They have a multi-level, enclosed garage which is nice; however, the 'best' spots are reserved for valet parking but they have elevators that take you to the main floor so it's not too much of an inconvenience not to park on that level.
We ate once in their restaurant (breakfast). It was pricey but the food, service and atmosphere were excellent. The view is outstanding and we were seated at a table that allowed us to enjoy it! I also took advantage of their spa. It, too, was very nice. I made a last-minute massage reservation and ended up being place in a hotel room converted to a massage room...not quite what I expected but was fine with it because the massage was great!
The staff was always very helpful and attentive....excellent service! We enjoyed our stay and all the amenities that the hotel offered. We have no complaints and would definitely return.
