Everything was great except for the upgraded room that we paid extra for. While laying in bed all we looked at was the hotel. We were there for my daughters wedding and everything was done to her perfection. The food was outstanding.

If you want the best of Banff but choose not to splurge on the Fairmont, this gem of a hotel is a fantastic option. Make sure you reserve a premium room if possible in order to get the million dollar view but even if not, the view from the patio off the pretty main lobby is gorgeous.

If you want the best of Banff but choose not to splurge on the Fairmont, this gem of a hotel is a fantastic option. Make sure you reserve a premium room if possible in order to get the million dollar view but even if not, the view from the patio off the pretty main lobby is gorgeous. Staff is super-polite and welcoming. Gift shop perfect, if predictably pricy, for snacks, meds, even bear spray. We didn’t try the restaurants — just as easy to hop a shuttle (Roam route 1) downtown for meals — but the menus looked good. Location is perfect for quiet nights, without the bustle of a busy tourist town. The rooms were fine with VERY comfortable beds. You’re paying for the view and the ambiance and you won’t be spending long hours in a hotel room. Mini frig and Keurig were nice to have. Location across from Sulphur Mountain made early morning hikes and sundown gondola trips easy. Enjoy! Read less

The Rimrock is a luxurious hotel, perched on a hillside (you enter on level 7). Pianist/singer in the evenings, jewellery store in the lobby, etc. As we drove to the hotel, I was rather concerned as Banff was very busy with the car parks full, and the hotel was quite a way out of town.

The Rimrock is a luxurious hotel, perched on a hillside (you enter on level 7). Pianist/singer in the evenings, jewellery store in the lobby, etc. As we drove to the hotel, I was rather concerned as Banff was very busy with the car parks full, and the hotel was quite a way out of town. In fact there is a (free) frequent bus service in to town which runs until around 11:30pm and it meant we didn't need to worry about parking at all. The Rimrock is a short walk to the Sulphur Mountain Gondola, and even shorter to the Hot Springs. Breakfast was expensive, but no more so than you would expect from a hotel of this class. We enjoyed our stay here. Read less

Such a beautiful and relaxing resort. My suite was decorated beautifully and the food was fantastic. The national park is right outside of your window and the views are out of this world. I plan on visiting again in August. True 1st class.
