HI. We need a hotel for 1 night in Banff area. Already staying 3 nights at Banff Springs but all hotels, except Sunshine Mountain Lodge are booked for the night we need. I would normally not consider staying here because it is so far away from town however we are interested in exploring sunshine meadows, taking the gondola, etc, and that seems a bit complicated with reserving shuttle buses and ride to and from the town of Banff so is this maybe worth considering because of the easy access to Hiking? Would we still need to reserve the shuttle and/or the gondola/chairlift? I'm unclear as to where exactly the hotel is in relation to trails and gondola? We are not big hikers...more like strollers who love gorgeous views and the gondola and/or chairlift sounds delightful to us! I'm also wondering how the sunshine meadows experience compares to Banff gondola and super mountain? Not sure we are going to be able to fit both in so if we have to choose one, what is your recommendation? Thanks SO much for your help! Coming end of July. Can't wait!
