Our History

Elmer and Grace Charlton began providing accommodation for visitors to Banff National Park in 1949. They started with a couple of Pan-a –bode cabins on Banff Avenue which were known as Charltons Cedar Court. From those early days, the family has continued to build upscale accommodations while developing a solid reputation for providing quality and service to their guests.

With a genuine passion for hospitality, the next generation of Charltons, Gary and Linda, went on to build Charltons Evergreen Court in 1972. This was a 52 unit complex with deluxe guest rooms as well as family accommodations. In 2000, the site was completely transformed and the Charltons constructed a brand new 99-room full service hotel now operating at the Royal Canadian Lodge. This special hotel was built with Canadian heritage and tradition in mind.
