    Situated in Lake Louise (about a 35-mile drive northwest of Banff), Post Hotel & Spa woos its guests with rustic luxury. This Relais & Châteaux hotel's accommodations range from cozy guest rooms outfitted with whirlpool tubs and wood-beamed ceilings to luxe suites with fireplaces and multiple bedrooms. Some guests do note that a passing train can disrupt an otherwise peaceful night's rest; if you're a light sleeper, request a room on the quieter Preferred Side of the hotel, which faces trees, cabins and the property's lawn area. The on-site Temple Mountain Spa, on the other hand, receives consistently high marks for its relaxing massages and gorgeous mountain views. If you would rather tackle the slopes than admire them, Post Hotel & Spa sits just minutes from the Lake Louise Ski Area. Plus, you can book special ski packages through the hotel if you're planning on a few days of skiing.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 364 reviewsTripAdvisor (364)

    Situated in the heart of downtown Edmonton, in the business and arts district, Union Bank Inn is centrally located for both business and leisure travelers. The 40 guestrooms and suites are split between two wings: Contemporary & Heritage. The Contemporary Wing features 26 business class guestrooms decorated with neutral tones, while the Heritage Wing features 14 unique guestrooms. In-room amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi access, nightly delivery of wine and cheese, flat-screen TVs and in-room coffee. A 2018 OpenTable Diners' Choice winner, the on-site Madison's Grill receives high praise from recent visitors, who were especially fond of the complimentary breakfast. Business travelers appreciated the hotel's central location, on-site business center and the boardroom, while couples favored the romantic accommodations and the personalized touches from the staff; both types of travelers were impressed with the quiet acoustics of the rooms. Some guests noted a few drawbacks, though, namely the high parking fees ($20 CAD overnight; $30 to park until 3 p.m. on the following day) and the tiny fitness center.

    Located inside Edmonton International Airport, the Renaissance Edmonton Airport Hotel offers travelers a place to hang their hat before or after a flight. In fact, this hotel is the only Renaissance in the world attached to an airport terminal, meaning you'll have access to an array of shops and eateries without having to leave the building.

Back at the property, there's a fitness center, an indoor pool, nearly 10,000 square feet of event space and a Starbucks. For more substantial meals, the hotel has Halo Bar and Bistro, which serves casual bistro fare. Recent diners raved about the restaurant's food, citing the breakfasts as one of the highlights of their stays. The hotel's accommodations also stood out to past guests. Each space features a white color palette with modern accent walls, as well as soundproofed windows, a desk and Aveda toiletries. And if you're a Marriott Rewards member, you'll enjoy free Wi-Fi access while earning or redeeming points for stays.

    A boutique property just south of downtown, the Le Germain Hotel Calgary prides itself on a commitment to outstanding customer service.

This Fairmont hotel wins guests over with its elegant accommodations.

    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 343 accommodations feature neutral tones and dark wood accents and come equipped with 32-inch LCD TVs and wireless internet access.

The hotel concierge can arrange outdoor activities like dog sledding, snowshoeing, whitewater 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 nearby downtown Banff.
