We stayed overnight at the Glacier View Inn on September 21, 2013. This hotel is located on the third floor of the Columbia Icefields Centre. I believe the check-in was on the first floor. The staff were extremely helpful. We booked a package, which included the Scenic Ice Walk, Ice Explorer ride, and breakfast. The room had a mountain view overlooking the back area of the building. We were in the room next to housekeeping and near the ice machine, so there was a bit of noise. We could also hear the generator throughout the night, but that was minimal as we had the windows closed. The room had a queen size bed and a loft overhead with two twin or double beds. It was quite spacious. There was no WIfi, but we knew and expected this. We initially parked where all the main visitors parked, but eventually moved the car closer to the building to where the buses parked.
Before and after the tour buses come and go, this place gets nice and quiet.
This was a really nice stop between Banff and Jasper. We'd stay here again, but in a glacier view room instead.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Glacier View Inn is a model of environmentally sensitive design, built to incorporate the pristine environment that it surrounds. There are 32 guest rooms - most have at least two queen beds and a loft. All are well appointed, with satellite TV, and direct dial phones. Many rooms offer spectacular views of surrounding mountains and glaciers but you should make sure to request a room with a view early as these are the first to go. Most rooms are well suited for families needing more space than a conventional hotel room, as well as traditional sized rooms for couples or individuals. Open April through October. ... more less
