The Mount Royal is in a great location in the heart of downtown Banff. All the main restaurants and bars are close, and the ski buses leave from the car park to the rear of the hotel. The green choice policy was innovative with the guests benefiting with $5 restaurant credit if they opt out of room service. Overall offered... More

Hotel is in downtown so we don't have to take a cab or drive to go places. The staffs were friendly and the room is clean and functional and was ready when we checked in. Will definitely recommend this hotel!

The hotel is old but was pretty nice. The beds comfortable. They also have the Green Choice program, that I think more hotels should have. If you opt out of house keeping services they give you a $5 credit to the restaurants in the hotel. The only down side I guess was the jacuzzi and sauna area was pretty run... More

If you want to be in walking distance of everything in downtown Banff, then this is the place to stay! Step out of the lobby and you can walk to all the stores, restaurants and attractions in town. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The hotel was remodeling the lobby during my stay, but the noise didn't penetrate the... More

It has been years since we visited Banff AB. This fall my wife and I had a few days off between trade shows in Calgary and Edmonton, so we rented a car and headed for Banff.

Comfortable, low cost room in the centre of town. Staff were all very helpful. We had concerns about the noise level but actually had no problems with it at all. We ate and drank in the small bar - friendly service and good food. Top marks to the batman with the marvellous moustache!

As happens every year, I leave things to the last minute and this year was no different. What I usually plan is a trip for myself, my son, and a few friends to Banff to ski Lake Louise for a few days. We stay in Banff because that is where you find the restaurants, pubs, and stores that the town... More

This was a great hotel for our tours stay during our Canadian Rockies holiday. My room had a lovely view of the town and mountains.

The Mount Royal is a great hotel to stay in when you visit Banff. You are right in the middle of town so you can park your car behind the hotel and walk the townsite throughout your stay. The hotel itself has great history and it is shown in many pictures in the hallways, but the rooms are well appointed,... More
