The trip to Banff was a Christmas present and we stayed in the Premier King Jacuzzi Suite. I booked this room in July for our December stay, and it seems this would be the wise thing to do as the premium rooms do get taken up quickly around the holidays.
When we arrived our check in was fast and friendly - they gave us a bus pass for the duration of our stay that allowed us to transit in to downtown Banff, which was well appreciated in the winter and holiday driving season. We also got a bundle of firewood, matches and newspaper and the first thing we did when we got into the room was build a fire.
The room was clean and private, with a lovely view of the valley below (train whistles echo and are very... charming but loud at night time - the hotel even had a notice about it so be prepared). The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and mugs and we did wind up shopping in town, though there's an option on the website to pre-shop and have groceries waiting for you when you arrive.
A wonderful magical stay overall - the reason I could not give 5 stars is because the 2nd night the jacuzzi tub quit working and after we called the front desk it was not attended to or marked on my account. When we checked out I mentioned it to the front desk again and they removed $10 from the overall stay which I didn't feel this was adequate compensation as the jacuzzi makes the room.
Would recommend a winter stay here; use the hotel hot tubs and ask for the free bus pass. :)
