After months of planning a bachelorette, I finally found the place the was perfect for the occasion. I had originally booked at another hotel known for its good reviews but when I stayed at the rimrock on a different occasion I realized that we had to book it there. This hotel is known for its luxury and comfort, the staff are always willing to help out with luggage or directions. Over all I am glad we booked at this hotel, it’s a perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful backdrop( that you don’t get in every hotel in Banff). It’s great for both family or friends getaways. This has definitely been our go to hotel for 2020-2021. Always leave feeling refreshed! Read less

Finally got to have a quick 3 night/4 day getaway in Banff with our 12 year old son. We love the location of the Rimrock as it is up Sulfur Mountain near the gondola, but still close to the town centre. Although there is a $22.00 per day parking fee, the hotel provides transit passes which allow you to use the local transit buses which stop at the hotel approximately every 20 minutes. The rooms are spacious and clean and suited our needs. The pool and fitness centre is great and we appreciated the final hour is reserved for "adults only". Food is wonderful, a little pricey (which wasn't a surprise), but the portions for kids were really large and could be reduced by half. My biggest recommendation to the resort would be to add charging ports or stations in the rooms for electronics given everyone has a phone or an electronic device that needs charging these days. The only option they had was to leave your device with the concierge desk who could charge it for you. (not something we were comfortable with) Read less

This hotel is an absolute gem. Although the view is by far the star of the show this hotel greatly impressed me. Staff were all cheerful and helpful. Check in was a breeze.

This hotel is an absolute gem. Although the view is by far the star of the show this hotel greatly impressed me. Staff were all cheerful and helpful. Check in was a breeze. A room on the 3rd floor North wing allowed us stunning views of the mountains. The room was very clean. We chose not to have an attendant in for cleaning during our stay but they gladly helped with the exchange of towels. Room service was quick. The pool and hot tub were very clean. The staff cleaning the pool area was very thorough. Leave your worries at the checkin counter. This is the place for some much needed R and R. Read less

I always say that the Rimrock is the best spot to stay in Banff - away from the crowds but still in a great location to take in all Banff has to offer.

Just a short walk away from the Gondola as well as some amazing hikes, with taxis readily available to take you into town. The view overlooking the Mountain valley cannot be beat - highly recommend requesting this view when booking. They also have a great spot to grab coffee and breakfast early in the morning if you want to take part in some early hikes! Read less

Awesome spot for the full Banff experience! Beautiful building and grounds. Kudos to the room service team for delicious food, efficient service, and delightful staff. The Courtyard is an amazing setting to eat, drink or relax. Quibbles: rooms showing their age and the dog fee ($40 a night including tourism improvement fee and levy lol). The Fairmont, on the other hand, waived the fee and provided clean bowls, treats, and a luxurious dog bed while Rimrock gives you nothing. Otherwise we heartily recommend! Read less
