Loved the location of the hotel. the staff were well trained and very pleasant. Our last stay was at the Many Glacier Hotel where I felt we were staying in a dorm house. The Prince of Wales Hotel is very classy. My only issue is that the sink is outside of the bathroom in the sleep area.. although I understand... More

One night is good enough so you can say that you have been there. By staying there you would have more time to check out the view, get up early for the sunrise or staying up late by the lake, the view is awesome. Room is small and old...there are other nicer hotels down the hill in town.

We enjoyed our stay @ the Prince of Wales Hotel. Beautiful view. Very historic surroundings. The hotel food was good. Very small shower; my husband could not bend to wash his feet. They have an old elevator if needed.

We stayed on the 5th floor with a majestic view of Lake Waterton and the International Peace Park (Glacier/Waterton). We were seated at a window table in the dining room for both breakfast and lunch. Excellent food was served by a charming young wait staff dressed in kilts. The Prince of Wales Hotel was built in 1927 and is listed... More

This is a great historical hotel. That being said it is not really taken care of. The rooms are dated and worn out. The common areas are also dated and worn out. The view is what you come for. The food is horrible. We had a dinner and breakfast and I would not recommend either to anyone. I think you... More

Really no other place to stay in Waterton...if you can afford the cost, it is THE hotel to choose. The room is simple, the view is priceless! The city center is a 5minute drive and Is a quaint town with restaurants and shopping.

This hotel is like going back in time - leave your internet and modern amenities behind because a stay at the Prince of Wales is an escape to a bygone era - it was perfect for these honeymooners. The hotel upgraded us to a kings suite where we had a balcony that looked out onto lake Waterton and the international... More

We had a very nice room on the third floor facing the lake. There is an elevator to the third floor run by operator. King size bed was excellent. Hotel is old but well maintained for being in a national park. High Tea was fun sitting in front of the windows facing the lake. Free wifi in lobby was a... More

I went to the Prince of Wales Hotel for dinner during the week, and it was beyond outstanding. Laura, who waited on us was absolutely efficient and genuine. She was on point with every detail and made sure we had what we needed. I had the cheese dip for an appetizer, it wasn't quite to my liking, however it was... More

The hotel is beautiful and superior vistas are in all directions. It's historic and does not have the features newer hotels provide (small rooms, double beds) with limited/no soundproofing. Fun, chatty staff if not too busy. Sit back and enjoy a libation in the bar and drink the views. It's a short walk to the core of the townsite and... More
