I had the pleasure of staying at the Rimrock Resort Hotel in Banff, Alberta, courtesy of Booking.com.
The Rimrock is appropriately named, as it is literally carved into the side of Sulphur Mountain and boasts 343 beautiful guest rooms, two restaurants, two lounges, and amenities such as a spa, indoor pool, hot tub, and gym. Its unique appeal is discovered the minute you walk into the lobby and see the stunning view from the Larkspur Lounge. I need to mention the second lounge just because of its name…the Divas Cocktail Bar. There was an event in Divas during my stay so I wasn’t able to go inside, but from what I heard, this bar is decorated with photos of Hollywood divas. I’ve included a photo from Rimrock’s website in the gallery below.
The Rimrock is located conveniently across the road from the Banff Hot Springs and a short walk from the Banff Gondola. Guests of the Rimrock can also use free transit to and from Banff town where there are many amazing restaurants, museums, and shopping. If you’re looking for things to do around Banff, see my other blog post.
My guest room was located on the 4th floor, which is down the elevator from the lobby…floor 7. Each room has air conditioning, a 32″ television, and a seating area. From my room, I looked out into the forest and jumped out of bed each morning, and threw open the curtains expecting to see a herd of elk staring at me through the window. Didn’t happen. 🙂 One day I’d love to stay in one of the suites with a large private patio and stunning view.
My in-room dining experience consisted of nachos with beet chips. Super delicious and was photo-worthy! I ate breakfast in the Primrose Restaurant and if my omelette is any indication of the quality of food in both restaurants, I highly recommend every menu item.
Each staff member that I encountered on my visit, were friendly and helpful. To get the full experience and be able to enjoy all that the Rimrock Resort Hotel offers, I would recommend staying at least 3 nights. Next time I’ll make sure I book a spa treatment and also relax in the pool and hot tub before checking out Divas!
