“Average hotel with above-average prices”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Not impressed. We were expecting a 4 star hotel experience. We got a 2 star (at 4 star prices). Room wasn't ready. No attempt by desk person to give us a time of when room would be ready despite being asked to do so. Lame. He said he'd call us. He didn't. Room looked into a forest of trees. No mountain view. Yes, I had requested one at my booking 5 months beforehand. Rules, everywhere...'don't open this door', 'kids not allowed unattended', 'closed until 5:30'. What an uptight place.

The Rimrock is a very good hotel, with its location the only possible drawback, as it is about two miles uphill near the Gondola. For some, this might not be a worry, as there is a free shuttle bus every 40 minutes from the hotel into the town centre. But if you want to be the centre of town with easy access to the restaurants, you won't want to be here, especially as the restaurants are very expensive. In every other respect the hotel is excellent. The bedroom was extremely comfortable, with everything you need. There is a large swimming pool, a good spa and great views. Charging $16 a night for self parking did seem a bit steep.

Room Tip: Don't bother paying for a view - you can see it from elsewhere in the hotel

OK, you can't afford the Fairmont, this is the next best. Great staff, food, and rooms. It was a lovely stay. You weren't downtown, which was nice. Anyway, it was our first trip together and it was very romantic. Sitting on the balcony, having some wine, looking out over the hills, can't ask for more.

From the moment you arrive at Rimrock, there is a welcoming warmth like coming home. The accommodations are spacious and every room has a spectacular view. The hospitality of the entire staff and service to all our needs were first rate. Every amenity you'd want is available including terrific restaurants with sumptous meals. The cleanliness was 5 star as well. The Rimrock, its location and spectacular views made Banff an experience we will never forget.

We stayed here for a week back in June. Granted the rooms could use some updating but when you are in a beautiful place like Banff who really cares about the room? We were only in there to sleep and shower.
Great staff. Very helpful and friendly. They have some incredible places to eat in this resort. The lobby area lounge became a quick favorite. Oh to have another Beaver Tail Raspbery Ale and those incredible peanuts with that view. The fireplace was also a great added touch. Huge to say the least.
I would gladly stay here again not only because you are walking distance to the hot springs and the Gondola but because you are away from downtown Banff and there was so much wildlife up on that hill.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view!

Beaver Tail Raspberry Ale is a personal favourite ~ I am glad that you enjoyed it to!
There truly is nothing like sitting in the mountains, enjoying the views, keeping warm with the luxurious fireplace and indulging in some good food and beverage.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I am pleased to share that we are currently completing room updates at the property, to our furnishings, and carpet.
I hope that you are able to come back soon to see the changes - and the fall colours coming through the trees are phenomenal.

Where do I start. It started with our arrival. We were celebrating our 32 anniversary, and were staying two nights at the Rimrock. We pulled up and were greeted by the door man, and he was very friendly, and I had a very large bouquet of flowers I had hidden from my wife in the trunk. I let him know what I wanted to do, he suggested I go to the front desk. The young lady at the desk took my flowers and had them put in a vase and then delivered them to our room. The rest of the weekend got better. The staff here are incredible, the food is fantastic. The views ares awe inspiring.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room with a great view. It may cost a bit more, but well worth it.

My husband and I stayed here on our last night of an 8 day trip. We drove back to Calgary the next morning to fly home. Our room was large and had a great view of the mountains. The bathroom was large as well. We did not eat at the hotel, but we did take advantage of the free shuttle bus to the downtown area and that was nice. A great stay!
