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.

Greeted by friendly staff when we checked in. Clean, fairly modern room. Quiet for our stay. Central downtown location makes it great to walk around town. Parking was fairly full, but we found a spot.

We had booked this hotel Sunday April 4th for two reasons. Reason one: the hot tubs were open within bookings. I even called and double checked that the hot tubs were open and asked when I could book. They informed me that it was upon arrival... which was fine. False. reason two: we were told on the website that our booking included two free drinks in the lounge. What happened when we checked in: told that both the hot tubs and the lounge were closed Tuesday and Wednesday’s. we would have not stayed here if we knew this prior to booking on the website. We are extremely upset that for a getaway to the hotel the amenities are not open but there is no statement of this when booking. I feel like we have been scammed out of not one but two false claims. Disappointed and will not be staying here again. I also reached out on Monday through Instagram. I asked if I could call the day I am checking in (Tuesday) to book the hot tub. Their Instagram replied that “ Hello, the hot tub can only be booked upon check-in. You're welcome to call today and see if we can make an exception” this message was delivered to me on Tuesday morning.... not even saying it was closed.... Read less

Our stay was excellent. The location was right on Main Street, great value and cool amenities - fifth floor hot tubs and hotel bar overlooking Main Street. My only complaint is that the room was not as advertised - booked a room with a queen bed and it was a double. But overall stay was wonderful and we will definitely be back!

Everything about our stay exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect, staff was friendly, the room was great and the hotel was clean. The hot tub is open and they have a good booking system in place. Overall we really enjoyed our trip and would happily stay again.
