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

... went for a trail nearby, south of Banff. In winter this place "Sunshine village", becomes a ski resort. So it would be very hilly, and it was! The first 5km's were a bit boring, but afterwards it was worth the effort. We came at the top of a mountain with 3 lakes next to each other and some awesome views. It became a long day with about 24km´s in ...
... give them to Tahlia. Tahlia on the other hand got tips! Some days she would come home with $$$ on top of her pay.
We ended up absolutely loving snowboarding! It took Tahlia a bit longer to get the hang of it than Chris. He was a natural. It wasn't long before he was doing blue runs, black runs and even a double black diamond tree run called Tower Twelve.
Tahlia, on the other hand, remained safely on the bunny hill for a few weeks and had three ...
... mountains and valleys. After 2 hours of hiking uphill, we finally made it to a mountaintop, where some Swiss guides built a tea house as a rest stop for hikers. We had some tea, soup and sandwiches up there, and rested to get ready for the hike down. The food was pretty expensive, but it's understandable, since all the ingredients have to be carried up by the stuff of pack horses daily. After ...
... trips on the lake. They are now run by another very rich man: the aforementioned Mr Brewster, from the Icefields monopoly!
The crew also asked us a question – which animal is classified as the most dangerous in the park? A number of people went for the obvious candidates (bears, wolves, etc.) but Chelle remembered from our visit to the Grand Canyon that squirrels put most people in hospital through bites and the ...
... National Park which seem a bit better organised. Despite it now getting late we decided to head back the scenic route in the hope of seeing wildlife. The closest we got was pulling over where other cars had stopped only to realise there was nothing there. We realised that all that had happened is that one person had stopped, and upon seeing a stopped car others had stopped and this cycle just continued. We put this to the test ourselves by stopping at the side of the road, and sure ...
