This is a continue discussion of the previous thread:
http://www.loyaukee.com/forum/vi ... 2404&extra=page%3D4
My 4 friends finally confirm some details about this trip. There will be 6 of us in total (4+me+my bf) This is the current plan:

Day 1 HKG-YVR. Spend day 1 afternoon and evening in Vancouver. Rest and have some good food.
Day 2 early flight YVR -> Calgary. Rent a van in Calgary. Drive to Banff and Lake Louise (sunday brunch if still possible) Overnight at Banff
Day 3 Drive to Peyto Lake -> hwy 93 -> ice field -> Jasper. Stay at carbine near Jasper
Day 4 Jasper National Park. Night 2 at Jasper.
Day 5 Jasper drive back to Calgary airport and fly back to Vancouver.

So I need to book 1 night of hotel in Banff or near by area. Any suggestion?

I have found a nice carbine near Jasper, I will see if I can book it. Will post review later.

How about food, any suggestion of good food for the Banff Jasper area?
We need suggestion along the way for lunch, dinner and cafe for a snack.

How about good place to buy alberta beef? We planned to do a bit of cooking at the carbine. Any good place to get them? (farmers market?)

And we may have dinner in Calgary on day 5, any suggestion for Calgary restaurant? They prob want something more Canadian than Chinese food.

Thanks!

Banff, u can try hotel Jupitar .. ( something like that ..  )

Very nice view, u can take some nice picture in the morning.

Beef here is nice, but you are not going to tell if it is really better then BC beef ..

Calgary restaurant?  price range? style? and what area you will stay?

We are not staying in Calgary. I guess somewhere in between the hwy from Jasper to Calgary airport. Easy to park?
Price range,  ~$40 per head?

    Last time in Calgary, I went to http://www.bears-den.ca for dinner.
I like the food, but quite pricey.

Oops...just notice you said you are not staying in Calgary... so just ignore the post then...

it looks interesting. Thanks!
Since we haven't book the flight yet, we could choose to have dinner before our fight back to vancouver or not.

Fibbi, did I suggest bears den to you as well?

I used to go there a lots, nice place, ok price, and cool deco.

Not the best food,(they are good) but really cool.

However, it is too far, and hard to go there with baby now ..

little bear, from jasper to calgary, 5 hour driving ga ..  be prepare ..  not sure what time you plan to leave jasper, you probably should have lunch in jasper, then drive back to Calgary ..  

Also, Airport is in WAY NORTH EAST part of Calgary, from airport to Banff, will be 1.5 hr to 100min ... (Banff is WEST of Calgary) Good that the new RING ROAD is opened ..  you can get to freeway right the way from airport.

Calgary is also 1 hour ahead of Vancouver, not sure what time you will arrive Calgary, but Sunday bunch in Lake Louie seems not a good idea...  Sunday bunch in Banff Spring is a good idea ..  ( I may join .. lol )

    Inside is more scary tim ..   ha ha ..

Cloth little bear :

From Jasper to Calgary, you will drive from west (highway 1), so it is not far to go Bears den, (on highway 1A) It is a nice place for people from HK and Van, when I have friends visit me from Van and HK, I like to take them over.

OK..this is bear den:
