We stayed in one of the condo-units for a weekend-long birthday celebration. A great time was had by all! And price-wise, it was definitely affordable (8 person accommodation for two nights worked out to about $150/person, total).
There were two beds on the bottom floor, a pull-out couch on the middle floor, and two more beds in the loft. Each area had it's own flat-screen TV and the bedding was clean and soft! It seems to be a bit of a party place, with a fair amount of younger groups of people, but noise was still kept to a minimum and there wasn't too much rowdy behavior.
The hot pools were an awesome plus and a great place to relax after a day at the ski hill. It'd be cool if the condo-style rooms had hot tubs as well, but really, it wasn't that far to get to the pools.
In the rooms, there are wood-burning fireplaces, and if you needed more wood, you could just call the front-desk and they'd send someone right over with more! It sure heats up the room though, so be prepared for that.
The only complaint I had was that the dishwasher in the kitchenette went kaput, a small pain when cleaning up after 8 people, but not terrible. There's an in-suite washer and dryer too, so long stays are pretty much hassle-free.
There's a bus service that comes frequently to whisk you off to downtown Banff, free of charge for hotel guests. And while there is not a fitness centre on-site, this hotel partners (or is owned by the same company as?) multiple other hotels in the area where you can use your room key to get access to the fitness areas or spas! The wifi was consistent! It cycled, but not nearly as much as some hotels I've stayed at, so that was great.
Would definitely return!
