They don't build them like this any more. Built over 130 years ago by Canadian Pacific Railway company. Great facilities including indoor and heated outdoor pool, hot tub, amazing restaurants and bars. Great access to all ski areas and ski bus picks up from front door on a regular basis. I would recommend a 1 day heli ski trip (can be booked in hotel) best to check weather forecast/conditions when you arrive and pick best day, sometimes they have standby places.
You must try a large size Bloody Caeser cocktail in the Rundle bar, they say it was invented here.
Easy to get into Banff to sample great food and lively bars, huge amount of choice and all good. Make sure you go to the Upper Hot Springs above the hotel.
