“Comfortable beds and great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

The Delta Banff Royal Canadian Lodge is a lovely property. The beds and linens are first rate. Our room had a fireplace and double sinks in bath, which were a nice touch. The fireplace did not work, but it was late when we discoved it broken so didn't bother to call on it. When we checked in we called the front desk to ask for a room with a better view. Our window looked out at the equilvalent of junk yards of two neighboring houses.( Did not make us want to open curtains at all) Front desk informed me the view was best they could do, being that they were located right in Banff. Really? She needs to seriously go to this room and look out the window. Banff is too beautiful to have to look out at this mess.
Parking charge very reasonable and they clean your windshield at night.
Lots of nice hotels in Banff. Might look elsewhere next time.

Room Tip: Ask about view. Even street view would be improvement over our view.

We just returned from a three day stay in Banff at the Royal Canadian Lodge. We booked this hotel because of the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed as a matter of fact we were very happy. We stayed in their best room, the suite with the king bed, couch and chair. It had a fireplace. The room was on the front of the hotel with a view of Banff Avenue and the mountain. The room was extremely comfortable, nicely decorated and clean. It had a lovely bathroom with the shower and commode separate from the tub and sink. The room was large and we really appreciated that in the evening when we wanted to sit and relax. There are many hotels located on Banff Avenue that all look nice but we chose this one because it had air conditioning in the room. Even though it is cool in Banff, hotel rooms can get hot in the summer. We also do not like the noise of an open window in town when we are trying to sleep. Another great feature of this hotel is the location. By being on Banff Avenue we were able to walk to many places to eat and shop without moving our car. The staff was very friendly. We had no problems and no complaints. We will definitely stay here again when visiting Banff.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and quiet.

A cosy welcoming hotel with lots of character and excellent service. Comfortable rooms and a great little pool, hot tub, sauna and gym in the basement - in at 7am after arriving from UK. So much to see and do from this great base in Banff. Staff helpful and informative.

we stayed at this hotel twice during our trip (both at the beginning and the end) the rooms were large, clean and nice. Beds were comfortable. Bathrooms were huge. The indoor pool was really nice - we spent a lot of time in it as my children were jet lagged and were swimming in it at 7am when it opened. Location was great and the staff was friendly and helpful. The ammenity that they offer for cleaning car windshields was a nice added touch.

We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. It is wonderful to hear that the kids enjoyed the pool and were able to get over some of their jet lag by using it.
I love to hear that our staff our friendly and accommodating. They are what makes the hotel so successful.
I hope our comfortable beds also aided in getting over that jet lag.
We look forward to being your host if you ever get back to Banff.

Lovely hotel. Great room with fireplace and very spacious bathroom, which made sharing with teens a lot easier. The windshield of our car was cleaned every day! The staff was helpful with information regarding restaurants.

Our stay here was wonderful! We were celebrating our 25th anniversary, and upon arrival, we had champagne, chocolate truffles and biscotti waiting for us in our room with a personalized note of congratulations. Such a thoughtful touch! We selected a "Deluxe" room with a king bed. It was very large with a sofa, 2 chairs, coffee table, and gas fireplace. The bed was so soft and comfortable. Plenty of drawer space too. Also loved having a refrigerator and safe. A little bit of a walk into town, but we drove into town most times and parked at the many free parking garages. The staff here was very friendly and helpful. It was a wonderful place to come back to after a very active day. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay!

Room Tip: We had a corner room on the 3rd floor. Very quiet!

Great Hotel, Did not like the fact that the hotel was so far from downtown banff, but we dealt. We had arrived a bit early and wanted to check in early as well as have my mother and sister and nephews have a room right beside us. When I called I got Carla at the front desk and she was so absolutley amazing, she was able to upgrade our room so that we could be side by side. Just awesome customer service!
