Delta Hotels by Marriott Banff Royal Canadian Lodge

Banff, Alberta

The hotel

Giving you that authentic ‘lodge look’, this Banff Avenue basecamp has dressed for the occasion, fitted out in cool stone and warm lumber. It’s a far cry from a little log cabin though, with its dramatic glazed entrance and grand lobby giving a taste of the modern edge waiting in your guest room, with its complimentary WiFi. Ten minutes from downtown Banff’s shopping and dining scene, its lodge-meets-luxury ethos extends to other attractions at Royal Canadian Lodge too. Take the refined Albertan menu at Evergreen Restaurant and Lounge, where local organic ingredients are sourced to deliver that true mountain flavour. And the inviting intimacy of Grotto Spa, whose mineral pool, whirlpool, eucalyptus steam room, and organic vegan treatments are set to a backdrop of slate rocks, tumbling waterfall waters, and cosy tranquillity.

We stayed in a junior suite which is very large with a great bathroom (walk in shower, whirlpool tub), and a gas fireplace. Room was very clean, we never heard our neighbors, and we slept really well each night. We did eat breakfast each morning which was simple, but they made us custom eggs each day.

What was refreshing that you can tell with a simple stroll down Banff Ave, was this hotel was not all crazy with tour buses loaded with people. We really liked the quiet calm of the Delta. Like others stated, I would guess it was last renovated about 10 years ago (the rooms). They could use a refresh. Read less

The hotel is about an 1.5 drive from Calgary, less than an hour from Lake Louise/Moraine, and within walking distance to downtown Banff. The room was quite large, clean, and had a fireplace to keep warm when the temperature dipped into the 30’s and 40 degrees Fahrenheit in late June early July. We enjoyed being in the center and in proximity to… Read more

Comfortable hotel good location. We ordered breakfast in our room as we wanted to go out early on a tour. The Hiking Breakfast is extremely dull. Cutlery was missed off our tray. By the time some cutlery was brought to our room the food was cold. Upon mentioning this at checkout we were told nothing could be done as the management would not be in for an hour. He said he would pass on our comments, as yet we have received no recompense. Disappointing service! Read less

Pretty nice hotel within 0.5 mile walk to most of town. Rooms are good, onsite restaurant is good, has underground parking. Staff is very friendly and useful. Made many suggestions to avoid crowds at banff gondola and lake louise. Good alternatives at norquay ski lift abd lake minnewanka.
