We spent a week here, and what a week, The week of the great flood in Alberta. The Trans Canada Hwy. was washed out about 300 meters from the hotel. Canmore went into a 'State of Emergency' and the staff in this lovely facility was great. We were kept informed of what was happening. Service was maintained as best as possible despite several staff not being able to get in.
The room was large with a beautiful view. Some of the rooms have gas fireplaces and balconies looking towards town, others toward the Trans Canada. all with lovely views of the mountains. Included in our room was a microwave, toaster, kettle, fridge, plates & cutlery, Tasimo coffee machine. (but only 2 cup pkgs). The king size bed was great and we both sleeped better than at home, (mountain air?). Downtown Canmore is a 10 to 15 minute walk. Access to the 2'nd floor is controlled by your room key card.
As in so many hotels, the light for reading was not really good. A floor lamp by the arm chair would have been great.
