“Wonderful stay in Banff....”
“This hotel is in a great location. It is about a 10 minute walk into the shopping area in Banff. There are sidewalks all the way. We had a lovely corner room - the hotel was a very quiet place to stay. The staff at every level were polite and accommodating. There is underground parking. Lots of good places to eat within walking distance. Definitely on my list of great places to stay in Banff!”- Kathy A.
“This is our fifth stay in this hotel over the last several years. We always enjoy our stay here. It’s nice and quiet and comfortable. We had a king size room with fireplace and it was great. One thing that we really enjoy about this hotel is there swimming pool hot tub and steam room. It is absolutely beautiful in their pool area. It’s one of the best ones we’ve been too. The food in the restaurant is also very good. We definitely will be back again next year. ”- Robert T.
“The rooms were so nice. We stayed at a very famous luxury hotel the night before and our room at the Royal Canadian Lodge was much nicer for less than half the price! I will definitely be staying here again!”- Bryce B.
“We'll be back!”
“Our first trip to Banff and we are so pleased we stayed at The Royal Canadian. Heated, covered parking with your window cleaned every morning is representative of the small touches that separate this from other places. Hot cocoa and cookies every night in the lobby were the perfect ending to busy days. With John at the front desk, Jakob and Dillon as concierges, Rachel and Amber as servers, you're in great hands. No question went unanswered, down to how the most excellent rolls were made in hous”- John C.
“Stayed 4 nights. Great hotel. Friendly staff. Apples and oranges out for guests to enjoy, also hot apple cider. Pool, hot tub and steam room very nice. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Rooms cheaper then Moose Hotel which is a basic 2*. Even with parking at $15 A night. Still cheaper. Pros - beds, sheets, towels- wonderful. Spacious room. Easy access to downtown and all sights. Concierge Jorden and Spencer were wonderful.”- Mingxue
