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.

This hotel is right on Banff Ave (great location) and the rooms are smaller but recently renovated, modern and quite frankly, adorable. No underground parking and limited elevators is the only real complaint.

This hotel is in a great location. Walking distance to all downtown restaurants and stores. The rooms are nicely renovated. The bed was very comfortable and the hotel was very quiet. We had a great stay!

Mount Royal Hotel is a gem! It’s newly renovated, clean and their beds are super comfy; lots of pillow and duvet. It’s an amazing location. You are 2 min.walking distance from The Keg, the liquor store, Starbucks and ski shop! Love it!

I loved this place when I first stayed in Banff so I had to stay with them once more. Would definitely recommend this hotel. No complaints; just wish the pool and gym were open but I completely understand.
