The room was very nice looking and clean. Seating area w/sofa. However, the bed was very close to the wall, and difficult to get in and out of. No nightstand or light on wall side of bed, so rather cramped. Same with the bathroom. Very beautiful shower and vanity, but door so close to the vanity that it was difficult to get into the bathroom. Overall, nice room, but not for more than 1-2 nights. Front desk very helpful.

Overall a great experience. Forgot to set out the “do not disturb” as I became conditioned with hotels in Canmore that only clean/replace towels upon request in an effort to be eco conscious. The bathroom didn’t have a fan and around the shower/the shower ceiling there was damage water damage occurring.
