Located about 15 minutes walk out of town on the Banff Avenue this hotel is well worth considering. It is far enough away from most of the city noise yet close enough to walk into the shops or restaurants and that's a winner if you like a drink or two with dinner.
First impressions walking through the door were good with the hotel presenting as very clean and welcoming.
Second impressions (the room) were better as our suite was a good size with plenty of space in the bedroom, a good bathroom layout and a living area / kitchen that made it very liveable.
Other advantages were the guest laundry and the parking under the hotel.
My only negative comment would be about the limited selection of food for the buffet breakfast

... and saying "I really want to go here". So here we are. Yet it’s a little cloudy. The sense of excitement is replaced by a sense of trepidation, that this long-awaited first view of the lake might be underwhelming. Fear not – the cloud was small and moving rapidly, so Tim ushered Chelle to an information board out of sight of the lake until it had passed so that the lake view could still be the Big Reveal. And what a reveal! For those ...
... Ron said that we might see a bear or two and we were not disappointed. Cars were stopped as this bear was just off the road down an embankment. Took a couple of pics from a safe distance, and then saw another one high on the bank on the opposite side of the road. Spray for bears Glenn? Oops! So you spray it at the bear? I was thinking it was to make humans less palatable! So that was rather neat. Also saw a couple of elk. What about a moose or two (is ...
... you" while I turned and headed back the way I came. I'm glad he noticed us and took the time for the warning. There were Ranger trucks rushing about after that. Theresa and I assumed they were looking for that pesky grizzly bear. I give Lake Louise three frozen bon bons. I'm glad we came when we did, not in peak season, must be crazy in August.
