“This hotel rocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Pristine accommodations and excellent food! We are having a lovely 4-day stay, hubby on a CBT course (just mornings) and boy have we settled in. The rooms are beautiful, fireplace, huge bathroom, comfy beds, pure class. The staff friendly and helpful, the walk to downtown, just 8 minutes. The pool has lots of chlorine but still great fun for our 8 year old daughter. The climate control system very efficient...cools instantly if you need. Most hotels are too warm or too cold, not this place. And the Charlton Cedar sister hotel (one block over) has a continental breakfast which we were invited to enjoy. Missed it one morning and the breakfast in the Delta was perfect. Lovely buffet and delicious and affordable especially for my daughter...Little Wrangler (pancakes, bacon, fruit) only $5.25 wow! Needless to say we have been skipping the continental breakfast since. But the piece de resistance...the evening meals in the EVERGREEN dining room. Hats off to Chef Gary and team. Wish we had eaten here every night. Prime Rib specials on weekends the best we've ever had! Don't know why locals aren't flooding this place to enjoy the food. They start you with fresh crusty bread with oil and balsamic vinegar. The Prime Rib came with fresh veggies, yorkshire pudding and the most yummy au jus. Just fabulous. We are going again tonight..oh ya! We'll definitely be back to stay even if my husband's conference is held somewhere else next year. All good!

Room Tip: Main floor was handy to pool, exercise room, restaurant and conference...quiet even though we were f...

Nice, clean hotel with friendly staff. However, a little far from downtown Banff for walking. Would get closer hotel next time. Second mirror in toilet room was too low, therefore useless. We were surprised how few guests used the restaurant, although the food was good. We were surprised how expensive everything was in Banff/Jasper & we’re from Calif.

Lovely hotel. Food was good although we were put in a side room for our meals so could not mix with other guests. Hotel is a good 30 minute walk from the centre of Banff. Although it is set in a flat area it could be problematic for people with mobility issues.

Room Tip: The worse rooms are near the kitchen as the AC for the kitchen continues all night long

We had the pleasure of staying in this hotel for part of our honeymoon when travelling around Canada. It was a beautiful hotel and very relaxing. There was a pool, whirlpool and steamroom which were all very clean. The staff were very helpful and gave good recommendations for places to visit and eat. It is within easy walking distance of the centre of Banff

Room Tip: Beautiful room and very clean and quiet

We travel to Banff often, 1st time staying at the Delta in Banff. Will return again. Amazing customer service, called to ensure our room was to our satisfaction, helped with directions and recommended pizza place, etc. The little extra effort was certainly noticed.

The room was absolutely spotless. The cleanest hotel room ever! Very well appointed, had a garden access.

The pool is small, but very nice, hot tub wonderful and steam room very nice.

For the price, well worth every penny. Highly recommend this fine establishment.

Room Tip: We had room 233, very nice and very quiet

We stayed at the Royal Canadian Lodge for two nights, June 30 and July 1 (Canada Day). We had stayed at the Fairmont Lake Louise the night before in a suite on the Gold floor overlooking the lake so the comparison from 5 "circles" to "4" should be understandable in this review but should not diminish from the following. Throughout our 10 day trip, we received nice upgrades from hotels in Old Strathcona to Lake Louise and again at the Royal Canadian. Our room was large, had a nice fireplace (that I used when my husband set the temperature very low), and was delightfully comfortable and well appointed. The front office staff was top-notch and the concierge service as has been detailed by others kept us informed of the best approaches to the resort, suggesting the Icefields Parkway as an incredible experience, which it was! The pool area is indeed a highlight of the resort but so, also, is the restaurant. The English prime rib served on the weekends is both reasonably priced and just a "wow" in presentation and quality. The hotel is not really in the hub of activity in Banff itself but this aspect is a positive. The hotel also seemed to constantly have personnel checking to ensure that the room was well maintained, had proper toilet articles and even had chocolates delivered in the evening. Old fashioned quality, always with a smile. Nice place!

We had the pleasure of staying at the Delta Banff Royal Canadian Lodge on Canada Day 2013. We had an awesome experience. The Delta is conveniently located on the main street in Banff and is within walking distance to most of the town. Even before we arrived we received an email from the concierge welcoming us. We were travelling from Ontario and had heard a lot in the media about the flooding and the closure of the Trans Canada highway so I emailed the concierge back asking him about the Trans Canada access. He provided me with excellent information to help us with our travels.
When we arrived we were greeted by helpful and exceptionally friendly staff and the rooms were immaculate, clean, quiet and comfortable. The pool area was lovely.
The only suggestion I have is to make improvements to the gym. The room is very small and all the equipment was in need of repair.
Overall it was a great experience.
