We stayed at the Mount Royal Hotel in Banff for one night this past weekend. We are from Calgary and have travelled extensively to Banff over the years and have stayed in many hotels so we are very familiar with the area.
The primary reason for picking this hotel, is there was a good rate on Expedia. As we were just staying one night and going skiing the following day, we didn’t need an anything fancy and were really looking for a good rate.
The best part about this hotel is definitely location. It is right on Banff Ave, right downtown with close access to everything. Most other Banff hotels are a good walk away from downtown, but this one was very conveniently located. Check in was also fast, our room was ready early which was great, and the free parking out back was nice.
The rooms were ok, you can tell they have made some upgrades but for the most part they are pretty dated and worn looking. The bathrooms, especially, could use a refresh. We used the hot tub too, it was a good temperature, and large size, but again the area which is located is just very dated, and kind of dingy being down in the basement.
We would have been relatively satisfied with our stay, however our sleep quality was very poor. The walls were very thin, and we could hear voices coming from many different rooms late into the night and we just did not sleep well. There weren’t even any “parties” going on in any rooms, the walls are just so thin that even people having conversations at normal levels ends up seeming very loud.
Overall, it was ok for the price but we will likely not stay here again.
