Being terrified of heights, this one was a struggle. I can't even climb a ladder. I'm sure I imagined plunging to my death at least 20 times...
Stayed here in Banff In late September.
Loved it. It had a well equipped kitchen and a wood burning fireplace.
We paid extra to have the Keg leave us a steak dinner in the fridge - there were a few communal BBq's for us to make our steak & baked potato which we had with the provided Caesar salad and cheesecake!
The hot pools on site were great and you couldn't beat the view!
On our trip through BC we stopped for the night in Kaslo where I experienced new things number 28 and 29. The Kaslo Hotel and the Rosewood Cafe.
The Kaslo hotel was cute. Very large suites for very cheap. These aren't fancy but they are clean and would be great to spend a few days in as the kitchen is very well equipped.
I'm really playing catch up today. In August I tried Twinkies for the first time. I'm told that this is a travesty.
The kids were huge fans! I, on the other hand, could go another 40 years without trying one again. It's not that they were bad...they were just such a non- food that I couldn't choose it again.
I never said that my 40 new things this year would be amazing...just new to me. :)
While I was attending a meeting in Calgary, I had the opportunity to stay in the newly opened Grey Eagle Resort and Casino.
The room was very very spacious and the bed extremely comfortable. It was nice to have a room with a view too.
On the other hand, my co-worker's room had a bathroom door that wouldn't close and a shower that flooded the floor. Construction was still going on in the hotel. The hotel was very very quiet and didn't seem entirely ready to open.
I think this hotel has the potential to be great...with a little more time.
