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.

The property is on Main Banff Avenue and is ideally located to explore Banff. The property was clean and staff were courteous. However when we came back from Banff we stayed in the same hotel however in another room in the old wing. The room was noisy, so be sure to ask for a room in the new wing. The old wing is quite noisy.

They provided us a room facing Banff street where we can see mountains for our 3-night stays, they even catered a free champagne when they found out it’s our anniversary, which is very sweet. The only negative part of the stay is with the noise at midnight from Banff street, there were two nights with people talking loudly on the street that woke me up (not a light sleeper), so be ready to wear ear plugs, but the view of the mountain is stunning.
