This past long weekend, a group of us stayed at the Chateau Canmore in Canmore, Alberta. It is located just 10 minutes from the Banff park entrance.
Overall, the place was pretty good. The price was reasonable and the facilities nice and clean.
Check out Chateau Canmore’s site.
Our room was nice. Two beds and a pull out bed in the sofa in the other room. It had two televisions, fridge, microwave, and a couple of tables to set stuff on as well.
There is a hot tub and pool. They are pretty small, but not a lot of people were using them anyways, so we were always able to get in. The pool is inside and the hot tub sits on a deck outside.
There is also an exercise room and restaurant. We didn’t use either, but they looked nice.
The main lobby has free coffee in the mornings, which is nice if you are getting an early start to the hill.
What’s Not Nice
I couldn’t complain much, but there were a few annoyances.
It was hard to keep the room cool enough. It was quite warm so we always had the window cracked when we were home. Didn’t run the fireplace once all weekend.
Only one of the televisions had RCA inputs on it, so you can only hook up a DVD player or other device to the one in the bedroom.
They have the slowest elevator I think I have ever been in. It is kind of funny actually.
We had read a lot of reviews complaining about the train being too noisy. We saw the train, but I never heard it once while we were staying there. Mind you, we had a room on the front side of the building and not the back, so that might have helped.
