If your looking for the best place to stay in Canmore, My wife and I stayed at the Falcon crest Lodge.
It should be on top of your list! The staff at this hotel are Just amazing and go out of their way to be helpful, from the moment you check in the differences are apparent, free DVD library with all new releases, free book library so you can borrow everything from trail maps and hiking guides to info on the Canadian Rockies. Our room was fantastic, It had a fire place, a Beautiful kitchen and a really nice stainless steel BBQ on your own private balcony. Extra clean everywhere in the hotel, and as I was taking the elevator down to the heated underground parking (free!) I noticed a sign that stated you can sign out complementary kitchen gadgets during your stay, everything from blenders and waffle irons to egg poachers and crock pots..
We stayed at other hotels in Canmore before hand and nothing compared to this.
My next stay will involve one of those crockpots cooking my dinner as I'm out hiking in the mountains! Thanks Falcon crest for another awesome stay!
