The Hot Tubs are Amazing
This is our second time staying at Silver Creek, and we love it. We stayed in a suite this time and it was incredible.
A little expensive
We stayed in a really nice condo with a great view of the mountains. The living room is small but adequate for our needs. There were bedrooms in our unit and each had their own bathroom. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, cutlery, and other cooking needs. The building also houses a beautiful Japanese-themed spa.
The only thing that was a little odd was the bathroom for the second bedroom. There was only a bathtub which filled from water that ran out from a spigot in the ceiling. A shower wasn't an option unless using the shower in bathroom in the other bedroom.
Surprise in Canmore
This was a one night stopover on the way back from Jasper prior to continuing on to Calgary for our return flights to the US. To say we were surprised at the facilities available is an understatement. I thought and expected this to be a standard hotel, and was unaware when making the reservation it's designed as an extended stay facility. Our room, actually more a suite considering the size and features, was equipped with a full kitchen, washer and drier, the living room area had the expected TV but there was also an AM/FM receiver for music and a DVD player. The bathroom had all very modern fixtures and the bedroom was also equipped with a TV plus the bed turned out to be very comfortable. I can't speak for the performance of the facility for an extended stay as a look at other reviews following our stay, indicated some visitors had issues with room maintenance and linen changes. That given, after spending a great deal more for a week in a standard hotel room in Banff I definitely would have stayed here had I know about the features offered. Not only would the costs have been significantly less, but Canmore is only 20 Km South from Banff and other sightseeing spots in the area. It would have been a perfect location for our travel plans plus the facility offered underground parking as another plus. (Parking in Banff was hit and miss due to the crowds). Can't add any advice on restaurants or other things to do in Canmore, as we only had time for a quick lunch before departure. Speaking for myself, if we go back to the area to enjoy the fabulous hiking and sightseeing opportunities, I would definitely pass on staying in Banff, and use this hotel as the base for our area travel plans.
The bathroom tub fills from a tap in the ceiling! This creates a lot of noise initially until the tub starts to fill. Our specific room location was on the first floor facing the front of the building and the road. Since we were only there for one night, this didn't turn out to be an issue, but if you do stay here, try for a room away for the front. Each room apparently has an outside sitting area, so if you intend to take advantage of this added feature, a higher room location on the rear of the building makes even more sense.
Very nice rooms in convenient location to town and
very nice up-to-date rooms
convenient location off highway with easy access to town and area attractions but tucked along a crowded road with minimal outdoor green space
