"Great hotel near Banff"
One of Rimrock's best features is the free bus card provided to guests. The city bus is punctual, comfortable, and saves the hassle of finding parking in the center of Banff. The hotel is very nice, superior in most categories. Staff are young and very well trained in service courtesy. Needless to say, the views are spectacular, and the quiet away from […] downtown is really nice. With snow falling, it's a winter wonderland. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"beautiful hotel, terrific mountain view."
We have been going to the Rimrock for over 40 years for special occasions and getaways. We have had consistently good experiences, until our last visit.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best place to stay in Banff"
Everything about my stay at the Rimrock met or exceeded expectations. From the helpfulness of staff (great recommendations for sight seeing), to the fabulous dining experience at the Eden restaurant. Definitely will be back for another get-away!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Classy hotel, good location, though a bit dated"
The hotel was nice, at the base of Sulphur Mountain, 5 minute drive from town. Parking was a bit expensive. Could walk to the Gondola and Sulphur Springs. Room was a bit warm.Genuine Expedia guest review
I had never been to Banff before and was not sure what to expect. Wow. There is no way to convey in words the majesty of the views from The Rimrock and the excellent service inside the Rimrock. This is definitely on my "must return" list!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We requested a Junior Suite and had a gorgeous view of the Banff Gondola from out living area. Beautiful furnishings and magnificent view!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great views from the hotel"
Friendly, welcoming atmosphere, with classy service and facilitiesGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was well-maintained and of high-quality. The staff was exceptional, very wiling to provide information and highly personable. The shuttle into town was convenient and reliable. Our only negative comment was the lack of free parking. Given the room rates and the free parking available at nearby hotels of lesser quality, we thought the parking […] fee was unnecessary.

"Very Pleasant Experience"
Overall we enjoyed our experience at Rimrock. It was a nice 5 minute drive out of downtown - nestled in the mountains. The lobby presented well - dark woods, big fireplace, tall windows with beautiful views of the mountains. Staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, bed was super comfortable. The bathrooms are not updated (80s white tile and […] counters) but functional and clean as well. For the deal we got on the hotel, considering how expensive everything is in Banff, no complaints! Gave 4 stars because the bathrooms are so outdated for a 4 star property and because of the food (room service) - was pretty bad. $75 for two meals and a salad to share...very bland taste and way overpriced for portions. Make your way into town for some great food..... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Anniversary Trip Resort Hotel!"
This was our first trip to Canada, and one we will never forget. Banff has been on our "Bucket List" for years. The Rimrock Resort Hotel was the perfect spot for us . . . very relaxing, very romantic, and such a great location with wonderful views of the mountains.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel restaurant, overpriced stay"
We stayed 6 nights in a standard room while vacationing in Banff. The hotel lobby pulls off the 4 star feel, but our standard room left much to be desired. The Bathrooms are very small and outdated. We ate breakfast at the primrose restaurant every morning and it was good food, although overpriced. The hotel charges an extra 16 dollars daily for parking […] and you must take 2 separate elevators to get to your car in the garage. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel with great views"
Absolutely beautiful hotel with a great view of the mountains (when the clouds allow it). Has a free bus service that goes downtown that was very beneficial. Lots of interesting things to see in the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to downtown Banff by the city bus"
I Though It was a beautiful hotel. I loved my room and the view from my window. I enjoyed the lounge with the nice fireplace that was burning. I had a wonderful dinner in the Primrose Rest. The employees there were very nice. Also I liked the idea that they had a covered area to sit while waiting for the city bus to pick me up to take me to town. The […] hotel also gave me a free bus card to use when I went to town. I hope to return to this hotel someday. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a View!"
I rated the Hotel a Five because of the fabulous location. The lobby area is spectacular and very enjoyable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very good Hotel."
Located in picturesque environment. Walking distance from Gondola ride and Hot Spring.The staff is very polite and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Further from town than expected"
Great hotel. Great restaurants. Had no idea when stay was booked that distance from Banff was too far to walk for pleasure and shopping. Free bus pass for transit to town was helpful. Bed was good. Lounges and restaurants were excellent. Views from room were spectacular!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed in banff for three days, hotel out of center busy area which we liked. It was nice room, staff good and quiet.Genuine Expedia guest review
"lovely mid sized hotel - great views"
I loved this hotel...great views,good service,spacious rooms,super comfortable beds,nice amenities. Beware the parking fees. It took up to 20 minutes to drive to Banff which is two miles away.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent hotel, awesome breakfast buffet, and very close(walking distance) to 2 major tourist places (Gondola and Upper springs)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful View, Elegant Ambience, No Crowds"
So glad we followed a friend's recommendation to stay here rather than the over popularized and crowd filled Fairmont. The RimRock is off the beaten path, 4 miles outside of the very crowded Banff, so be prepared to drive, bus or taxi into town. But it was well worth it. Very friendly service, lovely piano lounge overlooking the mountains. Only disappointment […] is that food in 2 of the restaurants was good, but not great (considering prices). Regardless, the overall experience was very relaxing and enjoyable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Canadian Rockies Getaway"
The hotel was located in a very scenic area and staying outside of the town was relaxing. It was close enough to be able to ride the shuttle bus into town when we wanted to sight see but leave the traffic (people and cars) behind. On our return to this area, we would definitely stay here again. The international staff was very friendly and professional. […] Our suite was great and had an awesome view. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great quiet location outside of town with views"
Excellent service, excellent location if you want quiet, but a bit outside town if you want to go out for dinner (there is a bus but it leaves only every 40 mins) and the only negative on the room was our curtains didn't close 100% together so a small gap of morning sun came through, otherwise everything was outstanding. Amazing view from the lobby […] bar/balcony, amazing view from room and mountain trails, gondola and hot springs all at your doorstep. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent view and pretty grounds"
We loved our view of Mount Rundle from our ninth floor balcony. It was magnificent and exciting to see the morning and evening views under different atmospheric conditions. Don't miss the walk down to the little ponds behind the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Away from the hustle and bustle"
Rimrock is in a great location, away from the busy and crowded main streets of Banff, but close enough for east access. The staff was very helpful with making dinner reservations both in Banff and Jasper. The view from our room was wonderful. We hoped the public jacuzzi would be less noisy, but as it is adjacent to the pool that wasn't the case. For […] a big hotel/resort we found the accommodations very comfortable.

"Fabulous mountain and lake view from the room..."
If you don't bring a car, Rimrock resort hotel can be a bad choice because it is little bit far from Banff downtown. But, considering the mountain and lake view Rimrock has, it's the one of the best hotel you can really enjoy the beauty of Banff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel in the Mountains"
The Rimrock is an upscale hotel in Banff national Park. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Great views from the room and lovely buffet breakfast. Would not hesitate to recommend or stay here again. My only complaints were the light bulbs were dim and could not get enough light in the room after dark. Also the bed was a little soft.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a great place to stay....really close to the gondola to the top of the mountain....free shuttle service to downtown and you really don't need to go anywhere for food or drinks. Look forward to our next stay there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We attended a wedding ceremony in the hotel ."
Overall the hotel stay experience was very good, the staffs were friendly and very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Rimrock resort in Banff"
The hotel was five star without the five star snobbery. We loved it. The service was excellent. The food was delicious. I recommend the Primrose's Ribeye steak.. Some mixed drinks were just as blue like the pretty lakes. The people were friendly. The views were breathtaking. The room was comfy and included oversized chairs with an ottoman, stocked minibar, […] stocked mini refrigerator and his/her bathrobes. I highly recommend this hotel.

"Room with a view."
We had a great time staying at this Hotel and we would do it again. The Room was great, the service was excellent. We liked the location to be a little away from the hustle bustle, yet, not too far that we could not access the down town Banff. thank you for recommending this Hotel to us to celebrate our 45th Wedding Anniversary!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"gorgeous hotel in Banff"
It is very gorgeous place in Banff. It is a little far from downtown but there is a town bus serviced by hotel. It is a very memorable experience to me.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place, terrific view, excellent destination!"
We loved our stay at the Rimrock! Stayed at the Banff Fairmont also and preferred this location - much less crowded and a more intimate feel. The views from our room and from our seat at the restaurant were incredible and the staff were all extremely helpful with suggestions and assistance. We'll stay here again and recommend the Rimrock to our fri […] ends! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We had the most fantastic view in our room. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The staff was helpful and personable. We stayed at three different hotels during our stay at Banff-Jasper and this hotel was definitely the best out of the three.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Outstanding service & accommodations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great views and good location for Banff"
Very upscale feel to hotel and nice size room. Staff super friendly and ready to help. Breakfast was wonderful as nice buffet and menu options. The Eden is a fine dining experience and while very expensive was worth every penny. Truly a world class meal with a spectacular wine list. Only complaint was our bathroom was small and needs updating to match […] rest of hotel's upscale feel. Amazing views out the windows and across street from hot springs, hiking, and Banff Gondola, free shuttle into town a nice touch. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"luxury hotel in the mountains"
Planned on booking at the Fairmont but the price of the Rimrock was much less and the reviews were great. Glad I did, great service, views, restaurants and room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great views from a corner room"
Fabulous hotel, food and views. After all, that's why we are here!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
will stay in this hotel again for sure, service and room condition was very good, because of the location of the hotel, the view was beautiful, breath taking! especially the 5 diamond restaurant Eden was an excellent place to have a nice dinner, food quality was superb and same as the service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Incredible view and first-class service!"
We had a wonderful stay at the Rimrock Resort Hotel. Excellent location just a short drive from the hustle and bustle of downtown Banff. We had some trouble with our neighbors being noisy early in the morning on consecutive days, and they moved us that same evening to a wonderful new room (with quiet neighbors)!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great service, great food, great views!"
We stayed at the Rimrock for four nights. The night we arrived, we found we had a king bed rather than 2 queens (communication problem b/w Expedia & RimRock). Since I have restless leg syndrome, this was huge problem for us. I spoke with Alexandre, who (1) was pleasant and not defensive, so he was great to work with, (2) had a rollaway bed put in our […] room immediately, (3) moved us the next morning (hotel was full for the night) to an upgraded room with the beds we needed, (4) had our luggage moved while we were out for the day. No hassle, done with a smile, projecting concern about our needs. High marks! Food was excellent. We only tried the Larkspur, but had everything from drinks to soup to main dishes. All tasty! Every member of the staff was pleasant to deal with. Will definitely go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Will stay again. This hotel was outstanding.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel, great location and views"
Attentive staff, good parking facilities, near downtown but tucked away from the noise. Our room had a beautiful view of tunnel mountain. The rooms were very clean and modern, classy. We didn't stay long enough to enjoy all the amenities, but we will certainly plan to return!Genuine Expedia guest review
"A great place to stay in Banff"
Beautiful hotel, and a little away from town. At first I thought that would be bad, but the hotel gave us free passes for the bus system that runs down to town a couple of times every hour, didn't have to use my car once in three days. The Banff gondolas and the hot springs were within walking distance. The staff was helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. […] Didn't eat at the high end restaurants there but did have a roast beef sandwich at the bar that was very good. The rooms were clean and comfortable and a nice little feature was the maid service could be cancelled for a day or two at a time and they would give u a food credit.. I don't normally stay in a 4+ star hotel, but decided to splurge for first time in Banff and it was well worth the money. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful experience at Rimrock"
We spent our last two nights on a 10-day Canadian Rockies trip at Rimrock. The room was very clean with comfortable beds. We had a room with the mountain view and a very lovely patio. Hotel staff was helpful and polite. Great location, literally next to the Gondola and Hot Spring. We were SO happy with the choice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Canada experience"
Rimrock was a great hotel to stay. Although kind of expensive, we had a junior suite. Acommodations were great and hotel was very clean. Food was really good in all the restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Gorgeous, showy hotel next to the Banff gondola"
Rooms with view of forests and Rockies are extraordinary. One of our group members saw a pair of black bears (mom and baby) eating in the forest just below their window! Very luxurious rooms and bed. 5-minute walk up the hill to the Banff Gondola, which no one should miss. The only negative of the hotel is that it is a steep bike ride up the road (15-20 […] mins) out of the main drag of Banff. Hotel has access to free shuttle bus to/from town, though.
