This was by far the best stay we have had in Banff. We been going for about 12 year and The Rimrock staff was awesome. They were friendly, very helpful and the location and view was awesome. Definitely going to stay there. Even with the COVID 19 restrictions everything was great.

We stayed at the Rimrock for a couple nights over Spring break. The hotel was very nice and all the staff were very friendly. I had asked for extra towels and a step stool for my daughter to reach the bathroom sink in my request and both were already in the room when I arrived. Beds were very comfortable and rooms very spacious and clean. The mini fridge was handy to keep our drinks cold. We did late check in the staff who greeted us at the door was super friendly. I think his name was Jason. He helped us with our luggage to our rooms. We didn't get a chance to partake in any amenities at the hotel as we had booked a Johnston Canyon ice walk for the next day. This was our first time to the Rimrock and we loved the hotel and all the friendly and helpful staff. We will be back again! Read less

We just returned from a last minute getaway for the occasion of our anniversary. We have not stayed here before, but I've always wanted to try both Banff Springs (done) and this one. We had a lovely time and I can't say enough about the wonderful and welcoming staff we met at all levels. First of all, the facility is gorgeous, and the views are really spectacular. We chose a "non-view" room, described by the Rimrock as being an "obstructed" view. It was still gorgeous - snow on the forest, with Mountain tops in the background. We enjoyed some amazing cocktails in the Larkspur lounge, and in the morning had great breakfast at the Primrose Restaurant. All our needs were attended to. During this time of Covid some comfort items (like extra blankets) have been removed from the rooms, but you can call and have one brought right up. They even left an anniversary card and some yummy pastry for us :-) The rooms are large and well designed. The room kind of comes to a point with windows on each side so there is a little sitting alcove and the view is more panoramic. The bed was amazingly comfortable. If I had to take a tenth of a star off for something, it would be that the bathroom was a bit dated. With the pool closed a nice soak in the tub would have been welcome but the tub was older and very straight sided. Read less

I like to tell one more reason why I like this hotel. The stuff is amazing and ALWAYS do their best. Even with all COVID restrictions they do something creative, different and fun for the kids. My daughters are top priority for me and see them happy and smiling makes me happy too. Once they will get married and have their own life but memories from Rimrock hotel stay with them forever. May be they come to celebrate Christmas and Eater with their kids and tell them about good time. I want to say thanks to all stuff from manager to room cleaners for their hard work. All the best and see you next time. Read less

What a great time we had at the Rimrock! The hotel was great and we had a Mountain View room. So many restaurant options. Larkspur was great for adults and kids. Morning room service was an exciting experience for our boys.... and the breakfast itself was delicious all around! We reserved a fire pit and included the smokies and s’mores packages. If possible book for a longer time as it goes by too fast! We lucked out with being on the pool wait list and actually got in on our second day. Overall, great experience and we would happily stay again in the future. Read less
