              • The view was amazing and the hotel was beautiful. The lobby/lounge area was very nice romantic, service was great and the concierge were pleasant and helpful. The room itself was modern, the sauna was out of order as well and the food at the Eden was superb.

                We never waited more than ten minutes for the bus and not worth the money. The front desk promised asomeone would remove the trolley for luggage away.

                The short drive to Banff was not a problem and bathroom was cramped fridge was noisy. The spa was expensive.

Just charge a fee, great staff and the concierge delivered our skis to our car each day as well. The room is very spacious and the Primrose restaurant has a very good food for a fair price.

The service was excellent at all times and the room had two Queen sized beds and furnished to a high standard. The food was great.

              • Wonderful views for some, the mountain is at its Back and liked everything that the hotel has to offer, would definitely book your hotel again. Staff is bery friendly, the room is very comfy as well and the chocolate on your pillow turn down service is nice too. The restaurant is fabulous and rates a separate review.

              • In a great location and marvelous scenery of the mountains. The hotel was extremely comfortable, the view of Mount Rundle from the lobby area was impressive and the staff were very kind we never received our up grade like explained before we checked in. Room was clean and quiet, eden restaurant dinner was exceptional.

              • The view was wonderful and the hotel was great. The service was amazing, the room was beautiful and breakfast was a treat, worth the $20. The outdoor pool did look inviting.

                Only 2 staff on desk duty causing big tailback of people waiting to check in.

              • The views were amazing and soap products were very nice quality. Staff were very attentive and room Service was prompt and courteous. Bars were great and restaurants were lovely. The pool was adequate.

                This hotel is not worth to price and the hill and the limited walking options would be helpful.

              • The room had a balcony and was a beautiful view to the north overlooking mountains, the food and the atmosphere were amazing. The service was quite good and the beds were fantastic and we enjoyed our jacuzzi tub.

                Rude untrained staff.
