How it Ranks: The Rimrock Resort Hotel ranks #4 out of 77 Banff Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews.
Our Take: Rooted to the slope of Sulphur Mountain, The Rimrock Resort Hotel is about as close as you can stay to the Canadian Rockies without camping. Recent guests rave about the views of the surrounding mountains from the guest rooms on the hotel's higher floors and from the GrandView suites. Each of The Rimrock's 346 accommodations feature neutral tones and dark wood accents and come equipped with 32-inch LCD TVs, wireless Internet access (for a fee) and Aveda bath products. Venture from your digs to sample some of the cuisine at Rimrock's five dining venues and lounges (guests say the Italian fare at Primrose Dining Room is exceptional). The hotel spa and pool also receive high praise for their clean and relaxing atmosphere. Looking for more active pursuits? The hotel concierge can arrange outdoor activities like dog sledding, snowshoeing, white water rafting and horseback riding. And if you're looking to shop or museum-hop, you'll have free access to Banff's bus system (Roam) from the Rimrock Resort Hotel into downtown Banff (it's a 2½-mile trip).
