We stayed here for two nights on our Explore the Rockies tour with Brewsters (who also own this hotel) and were very pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to the Brewster Suite. An enormous suite of rooms with antique style furniture, mountain views and all the usual in room amenities. It was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom... More

This hotel is in a wonderful location as you walk outside and you are right in the middle of Banff but we did struggle with the size of the room. There were only two of us but as we were travelling for three weeks we had large suitcases and there was not an inch of extra room. The hotel room... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the mount royal hotel. It is smack bang in the middle of town, the staff are really friendly and take the time to help out. I could walk up the hallway and down some stairs and I was on Banff ave.. I also loved that I could go walking to bow falls too.

If you want to be near all the shopping and resturants, than this is the place for you. Our room was clearn but the hotel needs alot of updating. The foyer furniture looks aweful. Many of the walls need repainting. Staff were very helpful and accomodating.

Included in Caravan Tour: Very good location near shops, trails, resturants and bus services. Room nice size, bed very comfortable. Very good in-room coffee & tea pot. Staff not as helpful as other hotels in Canada but did their jobs.

For a first time visitor to Banff, we were thrilled by the location, right in the middle of the main street, within walking distrance of restaurants, shops, bars etc. Staying for 3 nights, we were most appreciative of the upgrade to the Brewster Suite. This room overlooked the main street, had a wonderful mountain outlook and was set in the... More

This was our first trip to Banff - so the location was great - right in the heart of town. We could walk to dozens of shops, restaurants, and scenic spots such as gardens, waterfalls, & museum. It was also close to the gondola ride to the top of a mountain - which had incredible views - plus mountain goats!... More

Only positives - location is good and the bed very comfortable with sparkling white bed linen. BUT... the wall to wall carpets are dirty and rumpled and are dangerous as one could trip and fall. The bathroom - needs major refurbishment as in present state, looks dingy and dirty. The furniture looks as thought it has been bought on a... More

This hotel was right on "the strip" on Banff Avenue- our room faced a side street and was directly over the parking lot where buses also stopped. Great view of the mountains, but our second floor room curtains had to be closed for privacy sake as people could see into the room. Room decor was nice with many Lake Louise... More
