Rimrock Resort Hotel
Unsurpassed style, sleek and classic decor, and a setting that appears to be fashioned out of millions and millions of picture perfect postcards are all great reasons to stay at Banff’s Rimrock Resort Hotel, but this AAA-rated, Four Diamond hotel has much more to offer. A concierge service that pays a fanatical degree of attention to the needs and wants of its guests insures that visitors to the Rimrock Resort Hotel will have an unforgettable experience, and one which is bound to keep them coming back year after year.
Hidden Ridge Resort
Hidden Ridge Resort is located right on Tunnel Mountain, yet is only minutes from downtown Banff. The resort is made up of 107 condominiums, offering many luxuries one would normally expect to find in a top class hotel, but with all the convenience and facilities of condo living thrown in. So besides the full kitchen found in every unit, each of Hidden Ridge’s condos also contains a 32-inch flat screen television and complimentary wireless internet access.
Delta Banff Royal Canadian Lodge
Delta Banff Royal Canadian Lodge is conveniently located in the heart of Banff Township and offers visitors the elegance and luxury of a first class hotel, but with the rustic charm and easy comfort of a traditional Canadian Rocky Mountain lodge. Walk through the front door, and the first thing you’ll notice is the unique Rundle Rock fireplace, as well as a myriad of original paintings, many by local and aboriginal artists. It’s only a 10-minute walk from the Delta Banff Royal Canadian Lodge to downtown Banff, and the hotel is a quick sweep of the eyes from the spectacular mountain scenery that attracts millions of visitors annually to Banff National Park.
Charltons Cedar Hotel
Imagine the scene, if you will. You’ve been sipping brandy with your significant other in front of a magnificent granite fireplace, each recounting the adventures of the day spent skiing on the white powder slopes. After awhile, a sense of contented fatigue washes over you, and you make your way up the spiral staircase to the comfy king size bed that awaits you in the vaulted-ceiling loft. Pleasantly tired, you cuddle up under the fluffy duvet and fresh cotton sheets and discuss whether tomorrow should be spent relaxing at the Upper Hot Springs, or if you should take the mountain climbing lesson you’ve been talking about. Before any decisions can be made, you both drift off into a peaceful, utterly restful sleep.
Buffalo Mountain Lodge
Buffalo Mountain Lodge, Banff, is snuggled up against the gentle slopes of Tunnel Mountain in Banff National Park. Espousing the traditional values of the classic ski lodge, Buffalo Mountain Lodge’s 108 rooms all have fitted stone fireplaces, and furniture that has been custom crafted from stunning cherry wood, knotty pine and bent willow. Even the copper and glass light fixtures call to mind the opulence of old world inns. However, Buffalo Mountain Lodge, like Banff itself, is much more than a winter resort. It attracts visitors year round who come, not just for skiing and snowboarding, but for hiking, golfing, white water rafting, mountain climbing and—especially on the gentle slopes of Tunnel Mountain—mountain biking.
