We stayed at the Mount Royal Hotel for a week while skiing and it was ideal - the rooms were spacious and clean, and the staff were really friendly. The coaches that go to each ski resort pick you up right outside the back of the hotel, and there's good storage for skis and snowboards. It's right in the centre of Banff so perfect for getting to all the restaurants and bars.
The jacuzzi was great, nice and hot. I thought the bathroom in our room was a little dark at first but the shower was really powerful and there was a big mirror so it was good. We asked for a room at the back and were really glad as the view of the Rockies was amazing. It is an old hotel but the rooms looked recently refurbished.
We went to see why people complained about the stairs to the fourth floor... there were four of them (the horror) so the following rooms were on a slightly lower level (which is why they're labelled as on a different floor). There is a lift from the side entrance of the hotel to these rooms as well. Looking at the negative reviews for this hotel - it seems to be the people who stay on this floor, so maybe ask for a different floor if you're worried (we were on the third).
The majority of other people seemed to be there for skiing too, so you can expect tours etc to be staying - the hotel has a quiet policy after 11pm and security so if you experience any noise, reception will sort it out.
We booked the hotel and flights through Inghams so I'm not sure how much the rooms are normally, but it was great value for money for us. We would definitely stay here again.
