The Good
The majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive with much praise going to the hotel's rooms, staff and location.

Many reviewers enjoyed the accommodations provided at this hotel. They described their rooms as spacious, modern, and well-equipped, with beautiful decor, fantastic mountain views, and good quality linens and towels. It should be mentioned however, that maid service is offered only on the 4th day of your stay, which was a disappointment to some.

The staff were praised for their high level of customer service by several guests. They were described as helpful, friendly, courteous and professional, and offered tips to patrons about local attractions.

The hotel's location was pleasing to many lodgers. It was described as with walking distance to downtown Canmore's restaurants and shops, close to Banff, Lake Louise, and the Trans-Canada Highway.

The Bad
While many of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a couple of common complaints among them, which included the hotel's amenities/services and noise transfer.

Some guests were disappointed with some of the hotel's amenities. There were several complaints about slow Wi-Fi signals or being unable to connect to the internet. Some of the TVs in the rooms were deemed small (20-inches), and the elevator was also described as slow by a few. Another inconvenience for some guests was the lack of an on-site restaurant.

Noise disturbances were reported by some reviewers. They complained of highway noise, and being able to hear walking, talking and plumbing from adjacent rooms.

"Excellent place to stay in Canmore"
"Excellent accomodations. Very mountain-esque location and building. Kitchens come with pots, pans, utensils to cook with. Downside is: TV's are small for today's standards. Tubs are deep which might be hard for older people to get in and out of to shower."

Hotel Address: 170 Kananaskis Way, Canmore, AB, Canada
