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.

For the price tag, you get an amazing location that is central to all the shops and restaurants. Our suite was nice, clean and quiet. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful building right in the heart of Banff, historic and clean and spotless room. Super friendly staff, Thomas our morning server in the restaurant (complimentary breakfast) was such a delight. He gave my girlfriend and I service above and beyond his job. And information about all the hikes around town was invaluable. Thank you Thomas in Tony Roma’s. We loved our stay !!! It never effected me, I’m hard of hearing, but late at night my girlfriend (a light sleeper) was disturbed by the patrons of nearby bars/clubs. NOT in the hotel, but beyond their control. Now, the hotel location can’t be beat I’m my opinion. I personally would stay there again in a heartbeat, so would my girlfriend. Bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper. Location, staff, and spotless room will bring me back. No complaints from me, just praise. Read less

Wonderful historic old hotel, fully updated, with beautiful roof top hot tubs, in the heart of downtown Banff. With amazing rooms and staff. This is an original Banff hotel originally built in 1909. Best of all, all the downtown nightlife is within walking distance. You will be very impressed !!!

We stayed for 5 nights in May and had a lovely time. The hotel has been renovated and looks modern but it really suits it. It was a shame that only one of the hot tubs was working but we still used it 3 nights out of 5.
