Stayed at the Rimrock first part of July 2013...The hotel provided us with a slightly obstructed view of the forest/mountain range which was very pretty. Try and request a room that does not view the parking area. The concierge was helpful and pleasant, the bellhops were very helpful and friendly as well.
The room did not have a balcony but it did have one window that would open for fresh air if one desires. Central heat and air was available in the room with a safe along with a small coffee maker, and a refrigerator. There was snacks available for an additional charge if needed.The room seemed to have newer carpet and was very clean in all regards. The hotel is slightly dated with some stained carpets in the main hallways leading to the rooms.
There is a small area that provided coffee service and pastries on the main level for purchase if needing a quick breakfast. There was also self parking available for 16.00 per day or 30.00 for valet.
The hotel is a very short drive to Banff town or they have a complimentary shuttle that is provided thru the towns public transportation service for Rimrock guests. Also, the hotel is literally in walking distance to the gondola ride up Sulphur Mtn.and also to the mineral baths.
I personally am glad to have stayed at the Rimrock rather than in town and on two diferent occassions we saw elk just prior to entering the hotel...once in the early morning (8:00 am) and once in the evening.The hotel was clean, peaceful, and provided a nice view, although it was slightly dated. I would not hesitate to stay there again though.
