This place is nothing too fancy but a very affordable and comfy place to stay. Great place if your just looking to crash for the night after a few drinks on banff Ave. It's in a prime spot and close to everything! Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back of building have a beautiful view of mountain

Dear travelbug1187,

Thank you for your recent review of the Mount Royal Hotel.

We pride ourselves on offering our guests an incredible location at an affordable price without sacrificing excellent service.

We are so pleased you enjoyed the mountain view from your room. For our future guests it is important to note that not all of our rooms or room types guarantee a mountain view. Please request a mountain view when making your reservation and our front desk staff will do their best to provide you with a good view.

Thank you again for your feedback and we hope to see you again soon!

Sincerely,

Jessica Hall

We stayed here for 2 nights while on a tour of Canada so we have stayed in many hotels. This hotel was the worst in the way of sleep. We stayed on a Saturday and Sunday night and found the corridors in the hotel very loud during the night with people screaming and running up and down. To make it worse the hotel has wooden floors so you can hear the people above you walking around all the time. This made it very hard to sleep.

The positives is the location. Right in the middle of town and joined to Tony Roma's restaurant which is nice for dinner. Free wifi in the rooms is plus too but there is no fridge in the rooms.

Room Tip: Choose the top floor so you don't have to listen people walking around on top of you all night.

Dear KellyBond,

Thank you for your recent review of the Mount Royal Hotel.

As you mentioned, our hallways can get a bit loud on Saturday nights. If you are being disrupted by any guests, please call our 24 hour front desk and an agent will be more than happy to resolve the situation for you.

Our location is right in the heart of Banff and just a minute's walk to most of the restaurants, shops, and nightlife.

Thank you again for your review.

The day after our wedding, my wife and I checked into the executive suite which was reserved for us. Upon arrival, the room was immaculately clean. There was a bottle of brute in fresh ice on the table, Lindor chocolates, and a cheese/fruit tray in the fridge.

The staff were very polite and helpful. The room was spotless, and the bed very comfortable. As a pickey coffee drinker, I found this hotel to have very good coffee, much better than Tim Hortons' or Starbucks roasts.

My father-in-law stays at this hotel as often as travel allows, and I think I will follow suit.

Congratulations to your and your wife on your recent nuptials! Our Executive Suites are perfect for honeymooners or any couples looking for a romantic getaway. The Pinnacle features over 900 sq ft and huge windows with incredible views of Banff. We have been having some incredible sunsets recently - vivid pinks and reds.

Thank you again for your review and we look forward to seeing you, your wife, and your father-in-law in the future.

My husband and I stayed for 1 night in this hotel in Sep 2013 while we were on a 8 day drive through the Rockies. The hotel staff were really friendly and offered us lots of tips on what to do in the area and how to get there (including giving us free maps.) We were also able to park our car for free also at the hotel.

The hotel is located in the middle of the main high street in Banff, so is a good location to walk to bars and restaurants in the evening.

We would stay here again.

Dear squeak2014,

Thank you for your recent review of the Mount Royal Hotel.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed our downtown location, comfortable rooms and friendly staff. Having the ski buses pick up right behind the hotel makes it convenient for our guests to grab their gear and hope right on board!

Please accept our sincerest apologies for the noise in the pipes. We are currently in the process of resolving this issue and our pipes should be nice and quiet by the end of the week.

Thank you again for your review and we look forward to your return.

Have stayed at the Mount Royal on numerous occasions and just love crawling into bed at night. I don't know what they do but it is heavenly. Centrally located and a good price. Ask for a room near the elevator as some of the rooms can be quite a hike.
