Spent a recent weekend getaway in a Premium Valley View room, which was worth the splurge! The ever changing view of the Rockies and forested valley in the evening sun and again as the sun rises was breathtaking! The room also overlooked a small outdoor ice rink surrounded by snow-dusted trees, which you can use if you bring your own skates. The room itself was a decent size, with a sitting area by the window (where I spent most of my time).
The hotel is a distance away from the main shopping/restaurant area in the Town of Banff, so it is a great place to stay if you prefer the seclusion, and have a rental car (i.e. not much within walking distance, as you are half way up a mountain). Which naturally led to our choice of dinner at the 5-diamond Eden Restaurant inside the hotel, which was the highlight of our stay! We chose the 3-course wine pairing, which also included 3 amuse-bouche -- all of the dishes were beautifully presented and very creatively prepared. The service was impeccable, and well worth the splurge (again!).
The only drawbacks were the slightly outdated bathroom fixtures (shower) and a teeny-tiny hairdryer (the kind found in motels, stuck to the wall), which was unexpected in a deluxe-priced hotel.
I would definitely return to this hotel again, but maybe with my own hairdryer ; )
