    We stayed for the long weekend in August. For $300+/night, we won't do it again. The pros: the views on the lakeside rooms are lovely. The bed was spacious and comfy. They laid chocolates on our pillows one of the nights. Breakfast in the dining room was very good, not hotel expensive. Our server, Treasure, was a .... well Treasure.... More

    This is a great old lodge. Small rooms and bathroom but really enjoyed the experience. You will not want to spend much time in your room anyway. Most of the time in the lodge we spent in the great room. Could sit there for hours with that view. Walking distance to a neat little town on the lake. Many great... More

    We stopped here to see this beautiful hotel and we were totally taken in by it's charm. The staff were lovely and helpful. The views from the dining room were outstanding. We did not stay here as it seemed very overpriced but it was totally worth having a drink and lunch in the dining room.

    The people who work here were excellent, especially the bell guys. The front desk people were also good, as were the people in the gift shop. The view was outstanding. Parking was scarce. Our rooms were on the fifth floor, and were very small. We were not offered a queen or king bed. No air conditioning. No phones in the... More

    This magical gem of a hotel in the mountains is not to be missed. This was my first visit to this hotel and the area. This is not for a hotel snob but people who want to drink in some history. This hotel is a classic from bygone era and makes you feel like you are in a hunting lodge... More

    This is the most beautiful place in Waterton Lakes National Park. The hotel has been exceptionally maintained for 80 + years. My husband and I love to stay in this type hotel for the beauty and history. Our room was sufficient and clean. The food in the main dinning room is excellent. Even though we were not staying there the... More

    Stay here if you can, and definitely do the afternoon tea. Everything about our experience was topnotch. On this trip we stayed at four of the classic National Park lodges, and the Prince of Wales Hotel was our favorite.

    What a beautiful location. The village has not seen any significant growth in decades. It is lovely and quaint but has plenty of amenities to meet everyone needs. Just a peaceful and quiet village on the lake. The hotel is an old wooden structure built by an American railroad as compared to the stone structures of CP hotels of the... More

    The Prince of Wales Hotel is in one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen.....mountains, a crystal clear lake and wilderness all around it...... Enjoy their traditional "High Tea", have a very good dinner in their dining room but DON'T STAY THERE! The rooms were built in the 1920's and look like it - our bed's mattress was... More
