“Fine hotel, little isolated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

The hotel is on the other side of the highway from the main town of Canmore. The restaurant was also closed when I was there over Civic Holiday weekend (and apparently is still closed according to more recent reviews), so you'll need to drive for food options.
I was grateful that rooms were available on points over a holiday weekend, so I don't know about actual price or value. As a IHG Platinum member, I received an upgrade to a loft suite, including a working hot tub. The loft suites are near the elevator and quiet. (There's only one set of guest elevators, making the other end of the hotel a walk.) It was very nice, except that the stairs are honestly a bit awkward - and the dresser at the top makes the corner tight. The jets were quite nice, though I wish I had a "special someone" to share as suggested on the hotel website.
I appreciated the guest laundry with wash materials available, even at a fee, and friendly service from the front desk. Though I wish the hotel had a restaurant, overall this is a fine place and I would stay there again.

As my favorite hotel was booked and there were few vacancies anywhere else, I booked in at the Holiday Inn. The staff was friendly and it was very quiet, despite being fully booked.

I received a free upgrade, which was good as the price was no bargain. Unfortunately, the bathroom needed some serious help. The tub was clean but very old and there were many stains on the ceiling, including what appeared to be mold coming through.

I would hesitate to go back as I am sure there is a potential health issue here.

Room Tip: There are some great views if you are not overlooking the parking lot.

Stayed at this hotel in September. Hotel nice enough but no where near anything and during our stay the kitchen and bar was not working. Hence no food and hotel not near anything. Needed a car to be able to get anywhere.

Apart from that hotel nice enough but would not recommend.

Room Tip: stay at Banff rather than Canmore but if on a budget stay in the town of Canmore itself.

The HI Canmore was booked for a one night getaway for my wife and I. A short drive from Calgary, a visit to a local spa and our plan was to spend the rest of the night inside, reconnecting and enjoying room service. PROBLEM, the on site restaurant is closed and has been closed for a month or more. Thus we have to leave the premises for food (did not bring appropriate clothing for dinner) and no room service. There goes our well planned night. Our issue is with Holiday Inn Website not updating this information. They may lose some customers but they would ensure that those informed would not be as upset as we were.

From the website:

""""""Open Daily:
Breakfast: 7:00am - 11:30am
Dinner: 5:30pm - 9:00pm
Lounge: 5:30pm - 11:30pm

Room Service

Just like every Holiday Inn, here at the Holiday Inn Canmore, we do room service right!

You can select the meal you desire from our carefully crafted Room Service Menu, and let us deliver, right to your room. """"""


So you can see how this might make someone who expressly wanted room service and reserved at a hotel with room service less than happy.

Luckily the Hotel Manager was able to see things from the customers expectations and why we were severely disappointed. She took the opportunity to secure our future business instead of losing us forever. Now she would not have had to have been placed in such a situation if the website was updated and accurate. I hope that Holiday Inn Canmore can learn that "honesty really is the best policy".

Holiday Inn: Clean, Modern decor, great beds and pillows. Hot Tub was luke warm and jets did not work.

As for Canmore recommendations:

Breakfast: Chez Francois

Lunch: Harvest Cafe

Dinner: Tapas Restaurant

Spa: Bodhi Spa

Places to stay: Stoneridge for longer stays and Holiday Inn Canmore for overnights assuming things are 100% operational.

We recently stayed for 4 nights while exploring the National Parks in the general area. Easy access to Canada 1 and a short drive into Canmore.

Our room was clean and well appointed. The staff was friendly and helpful. Beware of the luggage carts, they are the worse I have ever used. They were wobbly and hard to navigate.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights when we were in the Banff area. Very nice hotel and good location. Only problem was that the restaurant was closed. Service was good and the front desk clerk recommended at great restaurant for us, The Iron Goat.
