New four star luxury hotel inspired by Scottish Royalty proves popular with conference planners
CANMORE, AB – The new conference space at the Malcolm Hotel in Spring Creek, Canmore fills an important need. The four star hotel and event centre now offers event planners a new venue and a luxury option in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
Maintaining a “retreat” feel can seem like an impossible task in the digital era and so is variety. Locating the right size of venue with enough accommodation space, mountain views, in-house features and local activities is challenging.
Inspired by Scottish Royalty the Malcolm Hotel is named after King Malcolm III of Scotland and has more than 8,800 square feet of meeting space, a variety of room sizes, and 1,200-square-foot terrace.
Top Five Reasons to have your next company offsite at the Malcolm Hotel in Canmore:
- Save time (and money) with an all-in-one meeting venue
While many venues might be a great place to meet, they don’t always offer the additional services you need to make your visit complete – accommodations, restaurants, on-site recreation such as a swimming pool or gym, or they’re so off the beaten track, you have to drive for hours, fly or even take a boat to get to civilization.
The Malcolm takes care of all of that with 124 guest rooms, fine dining at the Stirling Grill & Lounge that features an outdoor patio with spectacular views, an outdoor heated pool, two hot tubs and a fully equipped fitness centre, all centrally located in Canmore, just minutes from downtown. No need to waste time moving from location to location; it’s all under one roof, and the hotel’s banquet staff cater to any need with four-star service and hospitality.
- Experience a sense of royalty
Step into the aptly-named Edinburgh Ballroom at the Malcolm and you can’t help but feel like a special, honoured guest. The 20-foot-high floor-to-ceiling windows look out onto an incomparable view of the Rockies.
The Malcom’s ambience and design reflect the pageantry, royalty and heritage of Scottish kings. Named after King Malcolm III “Canmore” of Scotland (after whom Canmore is named, as well), the Malcolm makes guests feel like they’ve entered a palace.
Features like the 40-foot-high fireplace in the main lobby, locally made ironwork and custom-made wallpaper produced by a British firm that traces its history to 1877 (and which counts the Titanic and the White House among its clients) all serve to enhance the regal feeling.
The actual Canmore Malcolm Tartan has been re-coloured to suit the palette of the hotel, and its motif can be seen throughout the building. Authentic Canmore-sourced rundle rock has also been featured on external and internal pillars.
- Build your team
Offsite group outings, recreational activities and team building options abound in local areas. Test your team’s skill snowshoeing in the winter or white-water rafting in the summer; or get into the Scottish spirit when your team tries its hand at the Highland Games (coming to Canmore Aug. 31-Sept. 1, 2019).
The Malcolm Hotel located in Spring Creek, Canmore is close to the small town’s main street where there are a number restaurants, shops, bars and craft breweries. On-site staff can help you with your own team building experiences or can put you in touch with local companies that will conduct the service for you.
- Enjoy the fun without the crowds
Want to add a ski day to your conference? Enjoy a canyon ice walk or glacier tour? How about a horse-drawn sleigh ride or wildlife safari? You can do it all without having to deal with the headache of setting up accommodations, meetings and meals amid the hustle and bustle of millions of visitors to Banff National Park.
Staying at the Malcolm gives you accommodation and meeting space just 20 minutes away, while allowing you to enjoy one of Canada’s most famous touris attractions. Don’t get caught in the swarm. Or keep it local. Just a stone’s throw from the hotel you’ll find hiking and walking trails, riding paths and cross-country ski trails.
The downtown offers restaurants, art galleries and dozens of boutiques shops. The $39 million Elevation Place, just a five-minute walk away, is a recreation centre worthy of a metropolis, with a water slide, lazy river, yoga studio and climbing wall.
- Malcolm Hotel and Spring Creek are reducing their carbon footprint with geothermal energy.
Spring Creek in Canmore is committed to reducing the carbon footprint of its developments and has implemented a geothermal heating and cooling system in the Malcolm Hotel similar to what it has done in its Creekstone Mountain Lodge.
The use of geothermal systems in these two locations will add to the estimated 450 tons already eliminated in the current Spring Creek lodges, bringing the total to 600 tons annually. Wood features in the hotel have been created by Birchwood Furniture, known for its ethically sourced Canadian wood.
