5 reasons to stay at the re-opened Mount Royal Hotel in Banff
The Mount Royal Hotel has always held a special place in Banff’s history.
Located on the historic corner of Caribou Street and Banff Avenue, the hotel has always been a popular meeting place for locals, off-duty park wardens and those new to town. But despite its century-long history, the hotel has moved with the times and is due to re-open this July with an exciting offer of modern amenities. Here are just five reasons you should stay there.
1. The hot tub lounge
The most talked about amenity at the new Mount Royal Hotel is outdoor hot tub lounge. Found on the fifth floor, it is a place where you can grab a drink and relax in a hot tub – while enjoying views of the peaks like Cascade, Rundle, Sulphur and the Sundance Range. It is also guests only so you won’t need to fight for space either.
2. It blends the modern with the new
Banff boasts a strong heritage, and this can be seen through the town’s ranch-like hotels. You can relax by a log fire while enjoying a cocktail, and wander through the hall with tartan carpets before relaxing in your room with a smart TV and kitchenette.
3. Four room types to choose from
Choose from the Centennial Room View, Centennial Room, Heritage Room, and Junior Suite. All come with plush bedding, a kitchenette, smart TV, desk area, and two queens or one king-sized bed. Plus, the Centennial room View and Junior Suite come with unobstructed views of the surrounding peaks.
4. Two restaurants
While Banff itself is not short on tasty dining experiences, there’s a restaurant and pub conveniently located within the hotel. Tony Roma’s Restaurant is a casual dining family restaurant where you can bite into BBQ ribs, slow-roasted chicken and AAA Alberta beef. While Toque is the perfect place to socialise with friends over a game of pool with craft beers and heart-warming Canadian poutine.
5. And other touches that make your stay comfortable
Including concierge desk, complimentary Wi-Fi, outdoor parking, bell service, hotel library and 24-hour reception. Your stay at the Mount Royal Hotel is guaranteed to be just what you need for a relaxing stay in Banff.
