A luxury hotel is opening in the Rockies, aptly named the Grande Rockies Resort. It's the first luxury property in the city of Canmore, and part of Canada's Metropolitan Hotels. Other properties include Metropolitan Toronto; SoHo Metropolitan; and Metropolitan Vancouver.
Although it won't have its grand opening until spring of 2010, the Grande Rockies Resort is offering skiers and winter sports enthusiasts the chance to preview the hotel. Rooms are available on a limited basis beginning Dec. 11, 2009, with rates starting at $215 CAD per night.
“We are the first luxury hotel brand to open its doors in Canmore and we’re very excited to offer this sneak-peek opportunity,” said Henry Wu, president of Metropolitan Hotels. "We don’t want to wait any longer before we give guests a glimpse of what is to come upon completion of the Grande Rockies Resort."
Located at the gateway to Banff National Park and the Canadian Rockies, the 150-room hotel will feature one-bedroom, two-bedroom and penthouse suites with state-of-the-art technologies. Suites have fully equipped kitchens, spa-inspired bathrooms, designer décor and Gilchrist and Soames amenities. Guestrooms include plasma televisions, gas fireplaces and down duvets with Italian-Fretté linens.
The Grande Rockies Resort has a spacious indoor pool that incorporates a children’s activity centre and fitness facilities. A complimentary shuttle service and Les Clefs d'Or member-trained concierge services are also available.
