AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Classification): Since I was a youngster, I’ve never tired of wandering all the nooks and crannies of this magical hotel.
There are many impressive public areas to explore at this iconic jewel, which brings to mind a magnificent castle. Guest rooms range from upscale, compact units to extravagant suites. The luxurious hotel is the ideal starting point for outdoor adventures through the Canadian Rockies. Of course, if you stay here, you might find you never want to leave the property, thanks to courteous and professional staff and an abundance of on-site amenities—from a bowling alley to a relaxing spa to a number of distinctive eateries. Smoke free premises. 764 units. 3-9 stories, interior corridors.

Pros: Concierge and the luggage staff were super helpful.
Cons: The internal wire of a plug we had not used burned up and almost caused a fire in our room. We had to alert the front desk 3 times before they finally send the maintenance crew up to fix it. The maintenance person told us it burned through the plastic cover and thus created unbearable toxic smell. No one apologized after I had written emails to alert the management! The host to the Japanese restaurant is also unfriendly and unaccommodating. We dined in town for much better and more authentic Japanese food.
