One of the newest hotels in Canmore and it’s sure to make for a great family holiday. The Malcolm Hotel is a luxury hotel situated in the heart of Spring Creek a desirable neighborhood just steps away from downtown Canmore. The location provides a convenient location for Canmore’s restaurants, bars, and shops.

A series of rooftop decks make for a great place to take the views in from the hot tubs, heated pool, or in the resort restaurant. Rooms similarly offer good views of the mountains and provide everything guests could desire.

Stoneridge Mountain Resort by CLIQUE
The Stoneridge Mountain Resort is a great luxury property with apartment-style accommodation. Stoneridge Mountain Resort is a great place to stay for couples, families, and groups. For those looking to explore the Canadian Rockies, it’s likely one of the best options for self-catering.
However, it’s still within walking distance of the cafes and restaurants in downtown Canmore. Self-catered accommodation is really helpful when traveling as a family and can save a ton of money.
Guests can choose from one, two, or three-bedroom condo suites with fully equipped kitchens. One of the many standout features here is the large patios with a barbecue. Facilities on the property include underground parking, a fitness center, an indoor/outdoor pool, and a hot tub. Any families seeking a nice place to stay will love it here.

Falcon Crest Lodge by CLIQUE
Canmore’s accommodation options really shine with the multitude of options for self-catering in the Canadian Rockies. The Falcon Crest Lodge has several options for one and two bedroom suites that are great for families.
Suites here are not quite as well decorated as the more luxurious Stoneridge Mountain Resort. That also means it’s well suited for couples seeking a deal in comfortable accommodation.
All units come with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, kitchens or kitchenettes, fireplaces, and private balconies or patios. Comfortable bathrooms have tubs, walk-in showers, nice toiletries, and bathrobes. The property has underground parking, a self-service car wash, two outdoor hot tubs, a fitness room, and games/puzzles available for guests.

Mount Engadine Lodge
Mount Engadine Lodge is located along the Smith Dorrian Road/Spray Lakes Road about one hour away from Canmore. Set in the wilderness there isn’t much else around besides mountains, valleys, trees, and some moose.
In other words, Mount Engadine is located in an extremely remote section of Kananaskis. A wide variety of room options are on offer that includes private lodge rooms, cabins, glamping tents, and a yurt.
There is no cell service, and no televisions. It’s back to wilderness here – exactly like what you may after with a trip to the Canadian Rockies. If you’re eager to have that backcountry wilderness experience without roughing it in a tent and eating dehydrated meals you seriously can’t get much better than a stay here.
Instead, bookings include breakfast, packed lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner. In between delicious meals go for hikes or relax by one of the many wood-burning fireplaces. It’s certainly more a better option for couples, but it’s an amazing stay for the right family.
