Perched at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Banff is a resort town that is loomed over by the snow capped peaks of Mt. Rundle and Mt. Cascade. It is one of the favorite destinations of people looking to spend some time cradled in the lap of nature, surrounded by wildlife, some dangerous and some adorable. Well, yes! The city is actually famous for its large number of innocent looking elks and scary looking grizzly bears. In fact, if you choose your accommodation wisely (in case you are a lover of everything wild), then it is quite probable that you might see an elk grazing under your balcony or catch a glimpse of a grizzly ambling around meters away from your front window. The Banff National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site for more than 125 years, is an obvious must visit. The hot springs are perfect for ensuring relaxation. During winters, snow sports are not to be missed. Take part in dog sledding, snow shoeing, snowboarding or more!
The Fairmont Banff Springs is a superb accommodation option, and is considered one of the best hotels in Banff. They offer a huge spa and golf course, along with a pool, opulent rooms as well as services to ensure complete guest satisfaction. The Rimrock Resort Hotel is another popular hotel in Banff, with its promises of gorgeous views from every room. Since it is a mountainside resort, the sort of view you want to wake up to is your choice.
