Highly recommend this location and this hotel. It's an amazing place both from the scenery to the activities to the service. Check it out, it's worth it. The staff is the most impressive part. There wasn't one individual that didn't go out of their way to make sure our stay

Still one of my favorite hotels in the world and it's right in my backyard. Service,location, and atmosphere are all first class. Spa is world class and golf course is one of the best in the mountains. You couldn't stay in a more luxurious accommodation in the mountains.

For the price of a hotel night, I expected more. I'm assuming 3rd party bookers (expedia, etc.) are not given the best rooms. Our room had one window in the corner of the room, so it kind of felt like a closet and not the "luxury" accommodations I was hoping for and associate

We were on the Gold floor, there was no charge for the pool or spa. The hotel has an indoor & outdoor pool, outdoor very nice. Indoor, to many kids. Only indoor hot tub.

The pool & jacuzzi are not extra. This must be your 1st. Time going to a hotel/resort because every Spa charges extra for services.

A very good company for touring Alberta is Brewster Coach. I’m sorry but I am not sure if they cover British Columbia. To do both Alberta and British Columbia, you might want to check Globus tours. They have one for western Canada which might appeal to you. However both of these companies may be larger than you may want.

We do have a complimentary shuttle vehicle to the town site of Banff for our in-house guests available on request based on availability. This is a drop off only service and we are not able to pick guest up due to licensing. There are taxis services available as well as the Roam municipal bus service to and from the hotel!

"Ask for a corner room."
"The Gatehouse is off-the-beaten path - but it tends to be quieter."
"If you’d like a larger room, ask for one in the Conference Centre bldg."
"Room with a view are upgraded!"
"A large room if there are any in a quiet location with a view of the Bow River Valley"
