    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.

    Rooted in 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 features neutral tones and dark wood accents and come equipped with 32-inch LCD TVs and wireless internet access. Venture from your digs to sample some of the cuisines at Rimrock's four dining venues and lounges (guests say the Italian fare at Primrose 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, 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. There is also on-site parking at the hotel, though recent guests thought the fees were pricey ($36 CAD for valet and $22 CAD for self-parking, which works out to about $27 and $16 USD, respectively).

But you don't have to go far to enjoy your spectacular surroundings: The sundeck, the pool and all the rooms boast sweeping mountain vistas.

    Royal Canadian Lodge Banff
    Banff, AB

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    Previous visitors especially commend this hotel's prime location in central Banff, close to the restaurants and entertainment that the small ski town has to offer. But even with all the tempting options outside the hotel, guests still find reasons to stay on site. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with minifridges and queen- or king-sized beds and the premier, deluxe and executive suites even come with a gas fireplace; however, some recent guests mentioned spotty Wi-Fi service. And while Banff is filled with plenty of fine dining options, visitors often opt to eat at the Evergreen Restaurant, which serves up tasty dishes prepared with local and sustainable ingredients. The Grotto Spa and its mineral pool also receive rave reviews for their relaxing ambiance.

    If you've come to Canmore, Alberta, for the heart-pumping outdoor pursuits, Solara Resort & Spa provides a convenient home base. The resort, situated about 20 miles southeast of Banff National Park, plays off of the area's best asset: the Canadian Rockies. Solara puts you within an hour's drive of Mount Norquay, Sunshine Village and Lake Louise. After working up a sweat hitting the slopes or hiking the trails, head to One Wellness and Spa. Recent visitors say the spa provides soothing relief for sore muscles. For more relaxation, kick back in your room. Each of the one-, two- and three-bedroom suites features a cozy fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen and a spacious bathroom with a jet massage shower. Some of the suites also boast balconies appointed with electric grills, but if you're not in the mood to cook, you'll find a handful of restaurants and cafes in Canmore (less than a mile north).

The Moose Hotel & Suites is praised across the board for a number of different attributes, including its comfy accommodations, top-notch facilities and convenient location in downtown Banff, Alberta. Lodgers say you can't skip a dip in one of the heated rooftop pools, which offer up views of the surrounding forestry from the terrace or behind floor-to-ceiling windows. Rooms stirred up just as many feelings of warmth, with guests reporting their accommodations to be modern, yet cozy thanks to amenities like king-sized or queen-sized beds, in-room coffee makers, flat-screen TVs and bathrooms with rain showers (upgrade to a suite and you'll get a fireplace and kitchenette).
