Four of us stayed at the PoW, despite trepidation from reading TripAdvisor reviews on its reported few merits. We had read awful reviews about the Prince of Wales hotel and its food, but thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The rooms ARE old, but what do you expect from a hotel established in 1927? For dinner, we ordered four different menu... More

The setting for this hotel is fabulous and worth the trip alone. After reading TripAdvisor reviews we chose to eat a late lunch in the Lounge instead of having afternoon tea or dinner in the dining room. Sadly the Lounge was no better than the other options. We might have had a nice view but due to the smoke from... More

Waterton, Alberta is a lovely small resort town. We spent 2 nights at the Prince of Wales hotel and had a wonderful experience. The facility is a bit dated but the views down the lake couldn't be beat. For us it was actually neat stepping back in time with no tv, no AC, limited elevator service, but not all guests... More

We love staying in these historic hotels because of the perspective it gives us. There was a wedding staged in the main lobby which made us apart of the ceremony. A live harpist provided live music in the lobby giving it just the right atmosphere.

The staff outstanding. The Hotel History... The Views from the Hotel.... Priceless! If you want to really get to be a part of this Historical Hotel and feel like you were born a 100 years earlier than you were then this is the perfect hotel. It was difficult just leaving the lobby, it was so comfortable. Treat yourself and Enjoy!

They serve Tea in the lobby and this was great. Didn't stay in the hotel, but Tea gave us some of the experience. Tea of choice (each person) and an assortment of sandwiches, cakes, desserts, etc. Light meal, but could easily substitute for lunch. Was relaxed affair, so don't expect to rush in and out. An experience to be savory.

We had a wonderful stay at POW hotel. The staff was more than helpful. The smoke from the park fires was so bad the day we arrived we could not see the absolutely beautiful view out the back of the hotel. But when the northerner moved through with a refreshing dust of snow, the magnificent view was clear and wonderful.... More

Can't believe we paid over $200 for our room. At the very top of the building, in what looked like the maids quarters, with no effort at all to add period details. A mish mash of 70s furniture, 50s light fixtures and bad linoleum in the coffin like bathroom, this was a total disappointment. Our mattress sunk in the middle... More

This gorgeous seven story structure, in a location of absolute beauty and high winds, has heaps of history. My room was small and dated, with a wonderful view and a deck! The restaurant and the food are a bit above average. Parking is mayhem. Staff are helpful and friendly. History exudes, with a tiny elevator, open vaulted common area, and... More
