Everything about this hotel is first class beginning with the beautiful building. The restaurant with an excellent menu, wonderful staff, and a view that is 5 star. Plenty of activities nearby to make for a memorable stay, including a challenging golf course. Did not use a swimming pool or exercise center.

Each of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals and we all had different entrée's. They brought out free dessert with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate. You can... More

one of the worst places we have ever stayed! The room was very small and the staff unfriendly. The place seems to attract elderly ,child unfriendly,over weight Americans. I would never stay here again!

Lovely historic buidling stading proud on a hill...quite the sight. And what a view! It just can't be beat. It's a busy place, obviously popular..has a very warm feel with all the people coming in and out, enjoying the views and the bar and restaurant. We scored a super cool corner room so we had windows on two sides. While... More

When you first enter the front doors of the Prince of Wales Hotel, get ready because you will get a view that is spectacular! The entire back wall of this old lodge is glass giving you an awesome view of the lake and mountains towering in the background. Seated at the top of a sharp incline, the Prince of Wales... More

I did not stay here but made a stopover for a breakfast on the way back to Washington State on September 2012. Breakfast was excellent, the wait staff was courteous. The view was excellent. We ended up staying for 2 hours to explore the hotel and just enjoyed the view!!!

This was my first time out of the USA, we traveled up through Glacier into Canada. The Prince of Wales Hotel was the peak of our trip. It's a beautiful historic charming place. Older "Swiss" charm, but that was one of the greatest elements to staying there. NO INTERNET OR CELL PHONE COVERAGE BUT THAT WAS GREAT!!! Anyone who complains... More

This was our second trip to the hotel exactly one year apart. The hotel is very elegant and we really enjoy staying here. The view from our room was beautiful as we were facing the lake. The beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms are a little small, but given the age of the hotel, no surprise. We didn't have any room... More

This hotel was the most expensive of the 4 we stayed at during our trip to Glacier. We appreciate the age and size of the rooms, but found that some well-needed cleaning and paint would have made our stay more enjoyable. Loved the view from the lobby. Found the food to be extremely expensive so we ate in the village... More

The hotel is impressive. It sits up on a hill overlooking the town. It is a short, easy walk to the town. The rooms are small, and not well insulated (you can easily overhear your neighbors). We overcame this problem by running the suitcase fan in our room all night (white noise). The beds are comfortable. The hotel is historic.... More
