This hotel is situated nicely on Banff Avenue, not too close, not too far from the strip. Check in was pleasant, room was just a bit disappointing (we had upgraded only to find an average room), and situated on main floor. We had upgraded due to our 30th anniversary so a bit of a better room/view would have been nice. Rooms were clean, no issues. Rooms had a mini fridge which was nice. The King room has a little table but not really a 'sitting' area to eat or drink. The pool area was open to reservations and this was a nice perk, having the pool hot-tub to ourselves. There isn't really an option to get coffee nearby but at the restaurant downstairs and it is absurdly priced (2 med coffees for $10). Now that we have stayed here, we would stay here again, as this was a nice option, but we know what to expect for next time!

Overall, my partner and I enjoyed the Banff Royal Canadian Hotel. The rooms were beautiful, the scenery was nice, the amenities and decor was friendly and the staff was great as we connected with a few of them. A few of the downsides (unfortunately mostly uncontrollable from the hotel's POV - COVID) were: 1. The pool and hotel was booked solid for a couple days - COVID :( 2. The restaurant was middle class, but the food prices did not reflect middle class rates. They suggested fine dining, of which it was not. 3. The coffee maker in the room was very cheap and small. 4. The restaurant (and most in the area) were full capacity with COVID restrictions). Unfortately uncontrollable). The positives: 1. Beautiful room 2. A great price for what we got. 3. The front desk staff ( all 3 were amazing). 4. The underground parking was inexpensive and very clean and easy access. 5. The location was nice and quant. Overall a 3 out 5. Non covid this hotel would be a 5/5. Thanks,

We spent 3 nights at this property. Overall it was not a terrible experience but small things kept me from a higher rating. Many amenities, due to Covid, were unavailable. Spa, hot tub, steam room, and gym were closed. But these closures were not shown on our reservation. And paying over $250/night plus taxes (for a junior suite) with no breakfast or amenities, seemed excessive. When I asked the front desk if they would include parking in our rate, it was a resolute “no”. On our 2nd day, when housekeeping didn’t show up, we were advised that they only cleaned rooms after our 4th night. This is not a government regulation - the hotel implemented the policy to save money. Fresh towels, bathroom accessories, and tea/coffee, needed a call to the front desk whenever something was needed. Trivago still calls it a Delta hotel even though it hasn’t been a Marriott franchise for almost a year. Finding out, upon arrival that they were no longer part of Marriott, was disappointing. And the elevators definitely need some attention, as the start and stop is pretty rough. The staff were friendly and helpful, the beds were decent, and the shower was good.

Great place and easy parking inside. Rooms are comfortable and quiet. The breakfast restaurant is good but I would recommend Tooloulous in the city center. Damon at the reception was a key player in our stay and help us arrange our park pass. I would recommend to stay over. The waiter were awesome! 3 min drive to city center.

We stayed for one night in a King suite. The room was nice with a huge bed and touches like glass wine glasses in the room. We waited at the front desk several times as there was only one representative. Right now, during covid, there are no ice buckets or coffee/tea in the room and you have to ask. Restaurant/lounge closed before 10, which was disappointing. Parking available for a charge but is cramped. Masks required as per Banff bylaw, which was good because the streets are packed and few people used the sidewalks with courtesy. We might have enjoyed the stay more during regular times. For what we paid, I expected a better experience.
