We had a luxurious opportunity to stay in Canmore’s Windtower Lodge and Suites and fortunate enough to have their One Bedroom Suite which was absolutely amazing! It was like staying in an apartment for our stay! The location isn’t hard to find and they have a small underground parkade which is really handy for cold winter days.
Once we checked into our suite, we looked around. Through the entrance way was closet space and a stackable washer and dryer – which makes this place amazing for long term stay or if you have kids or anything! The suite then opens up into the kitchen area, which was a bright gallery kitchen that the balcony opens right off of. The kitchen is stocked for your use and they do provide you with dish detergent and dishwasher soap for you to clean up after yourself.
The suite even has a nice dining room table that seats for guests which is perfect for a 1 bedroom suite!
From the dining room would the the lovely seating area with a DVD player and an electric fireplace. Although the fireplace wasn’t working, it was still nice to cuddle up on the couch and watch TV to wind down the evening. The couches were really comfortable and quite large for you to sink into.
The bedroom was in a separate room with the bathroom ensuite. So, if you did have family/friends or guests over, they would be going through the room to access the bathroom. The bed offered a nice king bed with a ceiling fan which I love. It wasn’t the biggest room, but it had enough space.
The bathroom/ensuite was a nice little bathroom that had a stand up shower and your basic bathroom amenities. It was lovely regardless of size. We did find the water doesn’t really get hot, but that was the least of our concerns.
Our overall stay was fantastic. We dined in the restaurant located in the lobby the Wandering Elk and the portions were really big and delicious. We also utilized their hot tub which was really nice – so our trip here was fantastic and we can’t wait to return!
