Waterton Glacier Suites
Reviewed September 6, 2013

We stopped by Waterton for two days on the way home from Banff. The town is charming and the property is located one block from town. Our suite was clean and roomy. We found that most of the properties are about 25-30% higher in Waterton than other resort areas due to the limited places to stay. If your on a budget stay outside the park and make daytrips into Waterton. Make sure to hike Bear Hump Mts for great sunrise and lake shots. You can walk to the base of Bear Mt from the the property. We actually were the first on top and on the way back down met another couple from Reno NV, our hometown. Its a small world. After hiking if your up for a glass of wine or beer (great wine list) be sure to visit Prince of Wales Hotel. Amazing five star view of the lake. We checked out the rooms and we recommend this historic place to anyone. Just remember the prices for ALL properties are higher in Waterton and not necessarly better. So it may seem your not getting the same value as you would pay less, for more in Banff or Lk Louise. If you need anything..or forgot anything go to Pats. This store has camping, fishing, rentals, food and more than I can list. For the best sweet potato fries go to "Weiners"...it was packed so i'll assume the hot-dogs are also great:0) Happy Trails..

Room Tip: The Suites are roomy and plenty of space for two couples or a family. The Jacuzzi Tub was a plus af...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Waterton Glacier Suites. The staff was most engaging, the room was perfect and spotlessly clean. We were right in the heart of the community and could easily walk to where ever we were going. We would highly recommend Waterton Glacier Suites.

Room Tip: The loft suites are perfect.

This hotel was more than we expected. Clean, large comfortable king bed, fireplace in room (but it was too hot to use), large jacuzzi tub and 2 sinks. It was nice to have a little luxury for 2 nights after being in a couple cabins. It was very convenient to downtown - just walk a block or 2 and there are dozens of cute restaurants.

Room Tip: We were upstairs - it was nice to have a balcony. We used it.

We loved our stay at the Glacier Suites in Waterton. The room was spacious, clean, and quiet - which was exactly what we'd been looking for. The jacuzzi tub was lovely as well.
The king size bed was very comfortable and we loved sitting outside our room, on the stone walk out, after ours days of biking and hiking. Our view of the mountains was spectacular. We enjoyed the stay so much, we booked again for the following year (fall 2013), when we checked out. Would highly recommend the Glacier Suites.

Waterton overall is a quaint little town that doesn't seem to have caught the same commercialization fervour that Banff has been subject too. This property, for its price point is quite expensive, but I think that's what contributes to the charm of Waterton. Waterton literally has a small village feel to it and there are zero big commercial hotel chains in the town. Moreover, given the fact that there are no ski hills are significant winter sports around the area, its a seasonal town that really only opens up for the summer. So basically, what this means is that there is zero competition other than the existing hotels. With no real competition, the price points can remain exactly where they are and people will still come in hoards to check this place out.

Personally, I agree that for $279, this place should be significantly nicer in any other national park like Banff or Jasper. However, given Waterton's rustic and quaint feel, I don't think it has to be because people will still come regardless and continue to complain about the price. Overall, I would give this place more of a 3.5, its not the best property in the world, but its definitely not the worse. Just don't expect a ton of value for the price you're paying. I would equate it to paying for a 4 star property while staying at a 3 star hotel. But hey, most people aren't there to hang out in their hotel room for 8 hours a day, most people are there to see the mountains and enjoy the hiking and biking. See the Forest from the Trees.

Most of the places in Waterton are overpriced, but I guess you have to pay for being in a beautiful place like this. I chose the Waterton Glacier Suites because they advertise free WiFi - and was VERY disappointed when it was true, but the internet access at the hotel is pretty much nil. Seems like other hotels in the area are able to get internet, but not here (they claim it's due to the satelllite reception). Location is - well, the same as any location in Waterton (everywhere you stay in Waterton is within walking distance of everything). Check-in and out without a problem, but nothing special. We asked for extra cream for coffee and they didn't have extras. Not a stellar stay. Probably would look for someplace else next time.

Room Tip: don't expect WiFi

The suite we had was nice, but it didn't have a view. What do you come to Waterton for? The view. I realize that their season is short, but for the price this should have had a stupendous view. The room was clean and comfortable as was the bed. We have no complaints other than we were in this gorgeous setting and couldn't see a thing.
