“Great hotel”
Reviewed 5 July 2012

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic stay at the Mount Royal Hotel in June 2012. The room was huge (we had two double beds) and clean and had a bathroom with a great shower. We didn't use the restaurants or the sauna/jacuzzi. Staff were very pleasant. The hotel is on Banff Avenue so couldn't be more central. Would recommend.

Loved our 2 night stay here in June. The hotel is so convenient to everything in Banff (including a bus stop right in front of the hotel). Easy to walk to shops and restaurants. We had a room with 2 queens and it was sized right. The beds are so comfy - with very nice feeling linens. SO nice after a rough day in the Rockies! Our room overlooked the streeet which I enjoyed - not too noisy - and able to people watch a bit. I also liked the fact that we could open the windows for some fresh Rockies air. The bath area had a nifty pull-out clothes line, which allowed us to hand wash a few items. The Mt Roral may not be as luxe as the big named 5 star hotels but right in the middle of what you want in town.

This hotel is one of the original hotels in Banff and you can tell. It is dated, but clean, and there are no fridges in the room. The location is great as it is right on Banff Avenue where there is shopping, restaurants, and nightclubs. the river trail is only a short walk away. If you are just looking for a place to stay then this is your spot, if you are looking for something more modern and upscale it is not.

The hotel is very well situated - you can park in the hotel lot and then walk along the shops and restaurants without having to drive. The restaurant attached to this hotel - we had breakfast the first morning, wasnt worth it and very expensive. The room the first night was great, had a fridge etc ( we left for Jasper for 2 nights) but the room we were given on the 2nd night stay was way inferior, no fridge, the kleenex wasnt stocked and the bathroom was tiny. Having had such a nice room the first night, this was a disappointment. The beds were very, very soft and not terribly comfortable because of this. The staff however were pleasant

Room Tip: we were placed on the 2nd floor both times and there was an ac unit outside the window that was on c...

A great Hotel in the middle of Banff. Our room was spacious, recently renovated and comfortable. I did request a room in the new section (after reading a review on tripadvisor before I booked), and we got our request. The room had a coffee machine as well as a kettle, we were happy to have a kettle as we only drink tea. Alot of Hotels in Canada and the USA only have coffee machines so we were very happy to have a kettle. The room also had a small fridge, flat screen TV and aircond. The windows also opened in the room for fresh air if needed. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was nice and hot. Because the Hotel is in the middle of town it was a bit noisy at night, but I knew this before I booked but to me it was worth having a little noise at night to have a Hotel in the middle of town. The Hotel offers free parking which is wonderful. The staff were helpful and the Hotel offers free fast wifi in the rooms and also in the lobby. There is a Safeway grocery shop within 7 minutes walk of the Hotel and there are lots of restaurant choices in the area. This Hotel is a great place to stay and was fully booked the 2 nights we were there.. so that says something.. Would happily stay there again..

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room

The hotel is centrally located near shops and dining (no need to drive). There is a large parking lot available which was really handy since the public lots fill up fast and there is a time limit. The room was good sized, though the bathroom was really tiny. The room was clean, which is really important to me. The walls are a bit thin but that is pretty common with hotels, especially older ones. The room was equipped with a flat screen and a fridge. The hotel has some character to it being as it is the 3rd oldest hotel in Banff. Lots of old photos to look at and walking down the hallways take you back in time. Overall, it was a pleasant place to stay.

Loved this hotel because you could walk to everything in Banff. Very convenient and comfortable. Breakfast in Tony Roma's was very good. The staff was very helpful in the restaurant and hotel.
