  • This hotel is known as the “Castle in the Rockies,” and it lives up to that title. Nestled in the Canadian Rocky Mountains in Banff National Park, it is a very special place to stay. It offers one of the best year-round outdoor pools anywhere, with breathtaking views and scenery. There is a great little kids’ pool for babies and toddlers, and children also love ice skating by the river during winter months. If parents have a chance to sneak away to the spa, it’s well worth it and never disappoints.
