Originally marked "Siding 29" on the Canadian Pacific Railway's track through the Bow Valley, the town now known as Banff was touted as a tourist locale from the start. Set in the shadow of the Canadian Rockies, the resort city is located within the borders of Banff National Park—a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
To make your own stop among Alberta's peaks, hop aboard this Escape to Banff International Hotel. Minutes away from the Banff townsite's spread of boutiques, restaurants, and activities, Superior Rooms offer mountain views along with a pair of cushy queen-size beds and a flat-screen TV.
"Strangely for such a massively mountainous place, Banff—a catch-all designation for three ski areas and handful of small towns in the park's 2,564 square miles—is defined by what it is not," says The New York Times. "It is not Park City, overrun with celebrities, nor Megève, with its Michelin-starred restaurants. Nor is it luxury-minded Aspen, nor status-conscious St. Moritz, nor hard-partying Whistler. ... At Banff, one can focus on what really matters: deep snow (30 feet per year in some places) and how to traverse it."
Back at the hotel, switch gears from your action-packed afternoon in the lobby—RG's Lounge offers a variety of delicious sips in a low-key setting. Then, relax as you head for your journey's homestretch in the on-site Jacuzzi, steam room, or sauna, making your trip to Canada's top tourist destination worthy of a second go-around.
