I stayed in this hotel because I was only in Banff for 2 nights visiting friends and I didn't want to spend my days walking miles to get to town. This hotel is literally in the middle of town.
I got in fairly late (48 hours after leave home!) and was able to check in quite easily. By the time I had settled in though the room service was shut at only 10pm. Luckily Subway is 24hr and I knew where the supermarket was so I was fine.
The room itself, although far from the elevator, and had a few stairs to navigate (with a 23kg suitcase which was not easy!), was big and just what I needed. The bed was comfortable, like a cloud. The bathroom was fairly small given the size of the room but it was big enough for what I needed (a toilet and a shower) and it was clean.
The staff are friendly whether checking in, checking out, or asking for something. After not so attentive air hosts/hostesses and a surly customs officer it was so nice to be greeted by someone friendly.
If I ever need a hotel in Banff again, it will be th Mount Royal for sure! Maybe next time I will have time to use the pool or check out the restaurant and bar...
