This was a very nice resort. We went during our first ever Canada trip from a Thursday to Monday and the rooms were an avg of $275 per night. Great location as well. Literally next door to the hot springs (walking distance) and a quick shuttle ride to the town for dinner. We actually found ourselves staying in a few nights since it was so cold and convenient to stay at the restaurant that was in the hotel. Plus they had a nice lobby area for night caps and enjoying a rest from a long day of activities. They even had a lady playing the piano. She was great. The concierge was excellent as well. They helped facilitate the return of some snow shoes we left in our room. Highly recommend this hotel if you're staying in Banff. Can't wait to go back!!! Read less

We really enjoyed staying at the Rimrock Resort. I upgraded to the premium room/mountain view and the view from our window was breathtaking! Beds are super comfortable. Be sure to have breakfast at the Primrose on the 6th floor! You will not be disappointed!! We also had a massage in the Spa and we were very satisfied.

We spent 5 nights at the hotel and it was a lovely time. The staff are friendly. The older gentleman at the concierge is simply wonderful. At breakfast, we were spoiled by Billy who cooked the best omelettes. Karena and Sabrina who always smiled at us and of course our favourite, the indian gentleman called Mr. More. In every way it was an excellent stay. The hotel has lovely mountain views, a small ice rink which is good for kids, a pool and is just across from the Banff Springs and about a 10 mins walk from Banff gondola. Probably the only part for them to improve is service at the restaurant on Level 7 (food took 40 mins to arrive in an empty restaurant) and the reservations team who did not bother making my reservation for High Tea at Lake Louise. Other than these things it was great. We will surely stay there again. Read less
