Camping at Banff
The Banff Hot Springs
The Athabasca Hotel, Jasper
Mount Robson Provincial Park
If you're traveling with someone else, consider getting an annual pass. It's good in all the national parks of Western Canada, plus several provincial parks and historic sites, and if your stay will be longer than a week, you'll save money on the daily use fee.
Make reservations for the popular activities: Maligne Lake, the Columbia Icefields, the spas.
