Mount Royal Hotel

Banff, Alberta

The hotel

The completely renovated Mount Royal Hotel boasts an entirely new experience in Banff National Park. You can't beat the location – it's in the heart of Banff, with shops, bars and restaurants galore on your doorstep. The character rooms have been updated and renovated and feature contemporary and indulgent amenities including bathrobes and slippers. The hotel's rooftop lounge complete with outdoor hot tubs is the perfect spot to relax after a day on the slopes. Renowned Tony Roma's restaurant is onsite and serves favourites such as juicy steaks and slow roasted BBQ chicken and pork. Or alternatively choose to spend some time at Toque Canadian Pub to enjoy all things Canadian, food, drinks and even craft beers from Canadian brewers. Conveniently, the ski bus also stops right outside to whisk you off to the mountains, so you can enjoy the 3 main ski areas nearby, Mount Norquay, Sunshine Village and Lake Louise.

Love the location of this hotel. When work is finished I can just park at hotel and walk to many restaurants and bars close by. Love the king size beds in the heritage rooms and the five or six pillows.

The location is great, right in the middle of town with lots of shops and restaurants within a quick walk. The hotel itself is very newly refurbished, tastefully decorated. The bed and linens are very comfortable. It’s very clean.… Read more
Not knowing a great deal about Banff, we chose the Mount Royal Hotel for its central location and are so glad we did! The location is great, right in the middle of town with lots of shops and restaurants within a quick walk. The hotel itself is very newly refurbished, tastefully decorated. The bed and linens are very comfortable. It’s very clean. The staff were all lovely. We were on the 3rd floor in the very far end of the building, at the rear, so it was nice and quiet. There are coin operated washing machines and dryers on the lower level, which is perfect when you have been travelling for a while! We stayed for 3 nights and could have stayed longer! Although we didn’t use it, the bar and spas upstairs looked great. Definitely recommend this hotel. Read less

I had the pleasure of staying at the Mount Royal hotel last week. The staff were incredibly welcoming and had suggestions for where to eat. The room was larger than I anticipated and we had a beautiful view of the mountains.

When we arrived, we mentioned it was our anniversary. They came up to our room to give us a card signed by all staff with 2 free drinks in their roof top lounge. The lounge staff were great and we had an overall great experience.
