Overlooking the mountains near Banff National Park, Grande Rockies Resort provides guests with a wealth of offerings and amenities, from spacious suites and two-story penthouses to an indoor swimming pool and award-winning restaurant. The latter is Habitat Restaurant and Bar, whose upscale atmosphere and New Canadian cuisine has earned it praise from a variety of media outlets.
"In a town where rustic is the rage, sleek Habitat Restaurant breaks new ground," stated Where. "The contemporary décor that features dark wood, soft seats and imaginative lighting would not be out of place in New York, although the mountain view is vintage Canadian Rockies."
Calgary Eyeopener's restaurant reviewer praised Habitat for its preparation methods and customer service. "This is skillful, careful hotel preparation, created to please a wide range of palates. . . But where this restaurant really shines is its service."
Meanwhile, Calgary Herald recommended Habitat's brunch for Easter weekend, along with its lounge: "This resort also has a water slide and Canmore’s funkiest lounge, an ideal setting for happy hour."
