What a wonderful surprise the Juniper was. It may look like the Crossroads motel from the outside but inside it's everything we like and much more. Think Malmaison but in the Rockies - a super chic London boutique hotel but with prettier views.
The rooms are very comfortable, super clean and have every last facility. Fast wifi, good toiletries, an amazing choice of movies on demand.
The staff are outstanding. We arrived having got our bookings in a twist and came a day early than expected. They changed out booking without fuss, upgraded us to a better room and soon after settling in the maid knocked on the door as she'd spotted two of us and she knew there was only one robe in the cupboard - so she came with a second one. Wow.
The room service menu is extensive and amazingly good value. We ordered snacks which arrived super promptly.
On the strength of that we ate in the restaurant and we were so glad we did. It was the best meal we had in the Rockies (and we'd been there a week by the time we got to the Juniper).
Yes, you are by a main road, and you can hear some noise. But hey, this is the Rockies, not the M25. So it didn't bother us at all. It's outside of Banff so about a 10 minute walk into town (over that busy road) so not for you if you want to be in the thick of it. But if you want a hotel that's a cut above the rest in terms of style and substance, come here.
