Mount Royal Hotel
There is no better located hotel along Banff Avenue if you're after proximity to shops and nightlife. I can't disagree with those who have said that it can be noisy outside. However, that is the price you pay for being so nicely in the centre of the action. My junior suite was roomy, comfortable, and had a nice view over Banff Ave and beyond. If you're a light sleeper, you may well be better choosing another hotel further from the fun parts of Banff. For you fellow heavy sleepers who want quick and easy access to the best the town has to offer, this is the hotel for you.
Great hotel in the heart of Banff. The rooms were clean and quiet (and came with earplugs for nights that might not be so quiet, a nice touch). We liked the rooftop hot tubs and how walkable the location was. No AC in the room, but open a window.. you're in the mountains and it's not exactly tropical. We would stay here again.
Definitely stay here if you want to be in banff. You are right in the heart of the town and there are things to do all around. The only slight downside is there can be some loud people outside at night but the hotel provides white noise machines which knocks that out. Breakfast is not provided but there are restaurants all around which are great to go to! I would highly recommend this hotel.
Nice roof top hot tubs. Room was nice as well, no balcony. The best part is the location, right downtown Banff.
Great hotel, very clean and comfortable. Staff very knowledgeable and friendly. Make sure to check out the roof top lounge and hot tub.
