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

This is a premier property. I visited many years ago during a college class trip and hope to return one day with my husband. The rooms are perfect and the staff professional and accommodating. I would say it's off the beaten path and worth the effort to travel there.

This classic lodge is holding it's own. We booked a 2-room family room up on deck 6. I was really impressed with the quality of the beds. They are definitely newer and very comfortable, the best I've ever slept in in a National Park hotel. The view of the lake is obviously spectacular and is a sure highlight of any... More

We payed 270$ thinking that that could get us a basic room here. Well i have stayed at better motels than this as our room had no tv, no wifi and looks as if it was furnished by a blind man. Actually thats an offence to a blind man. In association there was no hairdryer and the room was the... More
