We chose to stay in Canmore rather than Banff as it is less crowded and just a slight more in driving distances to all the places.
We stayed in a room on the 2nd floor for our trip of 4 nights and it had a balcony from where we could get a beautiful view of the mountains as well as a fireplace. The hotel was clean and well maintained. Staff was very friendly and the service was excellent. There was complimentary hot breakfast and the selection was adequate though tended to be repetitive. The breakfast room is rather small and tends to get crowded after 8.
The room had a fridge and microwave and there is a self-service laundry onsite. The location is fantastic being just outside of the downtown area and about a 5 min drive to supermarkets (including a Safeway) and restaurants. There is a convenience store next door in the gas station.Ample parking is available.
We could see the kids enjoy the pool and waterslide which seems to be one of the highlights of the hotel (though we did not use it ourselves).
All in all, we had a great stay.More
