“I just wasn't that impressed.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2011

First of all, you need a map to get around the place (and I've been here before). Close parking is often full and the other available parking is not located convenient to the accommodations. When we finally found the registration desk, check in was simple, but we then had to go back to the parkade to get our suitcases!
My biggest pet peeve was the lack of air conditioning. Rooms had windows that opened, but no air conditioning. There was a small stand up fan that was old and noisy. There were 3 of us staying in the room, and only 2 towels.
We were there for a conference, with food included. Breakfast was great, but the family banquet was only okay. My daughter and I both chose to have steak, hers was undercooked throughout. Mine, well, after the chef touched it with his fingers to check how well done it was!! it wasn't as well done as he assessed.
I've stayed in the Banff and Canmore areas a lot and would recommend staying at another location. Other than the convenience of being on site for this conference, it was not worth it.
