Rimrock Resort Hotel, Banff, Alberta

Rimrock Resort Hotel, Banff, Alberta

I enjoyed 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 when you walk into the lobby and see the stunning view from the Larkspur Lounge. I must mention the second lounge 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 picture from Rimrock’s website in the gallery below.

The Rimrock is conveniently across the road from the Banff Hot Springs and a short walk from the Banff Gondola. Guests can also use free transit to and from Banff town, which has 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 on the 4th floor, 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, 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. They were super delicious and photo-worthy! I ate breakfast in the Primrose Restaurant, and if my omelette indicates the food quality in both restaurants, I highly recommend every menu item.

Each staff member I encountered on my visit was friendly and helpful. To get the full experience and enjoy all that the Rimrock Resort Hotel offers, I would recommend staying at least three 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!
