We need a hotel with a laundry as we don't have access to one for 9 days prior and will need to do some!!
Should we stay at a hotel near the airport or downtown near the car rental place? It seems very expensive downtown but its closer to shops etc as we will want to get some snacks for our trip to Banff. As there is 6 of us, we will probably need two taxi's. Will we be able to get public transport downtown or will it be by taxi? I don't really want to spend $100 on taxi's.
