Great location just outside of the hustle & bustle of downtown Banff. Well appointed unit (although the 1 bedroom is a bit smaller than we'd hoped). Very friendly and helpful staff. The water slides, quiet pool, jacuzzi, sauna, and indoor playslide made this the very best place to stay in Banff to keep kids busy and happy. The woodburning fireplace was great - unlimited, free firewood is made available for pickup. Will definitely stay there again on our next trip. The rate was considerably lower on online travel website by pre-paying in full (might want to purchase trip cancellation insurance just in case - but we risked it and were fine). We stayed 5 nights but wished we had stayed longer. Did the zip-line tour (a bit overpriced and overrated), white water rafting which was great, and reasonable (Chinook Tour), horseback riding at the Banff Fairmont Hotel stables (great trail - 1 hour ride - fair price).
