My teenage son, husband and I spent two nights, three days in Banff. We cooked several meals in the full kitchen so as to save from constantly eating out. The 1-bedroom suite was well-equipped, comfortable and clean although I had to ask for a sharper knife than the one provided. Counter space in both the kitchen area and bathroom as very limited. The facility was quiet and in a nice location on top of the mountain.
We walked down to the downtown area to enjoy the Canada Day parade knowing there were street detours and little parking. Getting back up the moutain on a hot day was terrible! Luckily, there are public buses that traverse the corrider every 15 to 30 mins.
Banff can be quite expensive during high season so we were lucky to get a good price by using Mountain Tunnel Resort. There are also 2-bedroom suites available, but the three of us did fine with a double bed and pull-out couch.
The pool, although small, had a nice view and windows all around. The change facility was great with showers, lockers and hair dryer. I was not used to seeing this in a hotel.
One neat discovery was that driving on the other part of Mountain Tunnel Rd took you around the side of town of Banff down a winding road to a place called "Surprise Corner". Here, you get a great view of Banff Springs Hotel and an aeriel view of part of the town and Bow River.
