With more than a dozen mountain properties to its name in Alberta and B.C., Canmore-based hospitality company Basecamp Resorts knows how to craft a memorable hotel experience.

Its latest luxury accommodation in Canmore is no exception. Stepping into the lobby of MTN House Canmore, you’re greeted by a lovely double-sided, wood-burning fireplace that immediately sets the tone for a relaxing mountain getaway. Formerly a Holiday Inn, the three-storey building has been transformed into a comfortable, yet upscale, home-away-from-home with 99 renovated guest rooms equipped with Nespresso Vertuo coffee machines and Rocky Mountain Soap products. Additional amenities like concierge e-bike rentals, shuttle services and an outdoor hot tub add to the appeal.

The hotel is just a few minutes’ drive from downtown Canmore, but you don’t have to leave the property for a delicious meal. Rhythm & Howl, the hotel’s 91-seat restaurant, café and bar, serves modern, seasonal fare for brunch, lunch and dinner — not to mention a daily happy hour. Those on the go can also snag a quick Monogram coffee and items such as sourdough croissants or spinach-and-mushroom egg bites from the café, which is open daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Perhaps the most exciting part about this new property is that, come summer 2025, it will be home to Canmore’s first Nordic spa (and only the second one in Alberta). Spanning just over 43,000 square feet, the outdoor Nordic spa promises to be a premier destination for relaxation and hydrotherapy experiences.

Around the same time, MTN House Canmore will also launch an 8,500-square-foot indoor spa in the hotel’s lower level where guests can pamper themselves with a variety of treatments, making it a must-indulge mountain spa destination.
