Louise -- consider staying in Lake Louise. I frankly much prefer it to Banff. It's an easy 45 minute drive (if that long) from LL to Banff for a day's visit, but Lake Louise is, in my opinion, even more beautiful - and certainly less thronged with tourists. I second John's recommendation of the Lake Louise Inn, but also suggest you check The Post Hotel; can be pricey, but OH! how lovely a place! Do go eat there even if not staying there.
