Prince of Wales Hotel
Reviewed 20 August 2017

Excellent overall service in a well-kept older-era building. Easy access to all services and sights within Watertons National Park. "Getting away from it all" done much easier here than Banff or Lake Louise due to being well-ff the beaten track.

Beautiful location, good staff. Building, inside and out needs to have serious money spent to refurbish. Looks like the intent is to reinvest as little as possible then sell it to park service when totally worn out.

Overall, the P of W is not a good value. The rooms are drafty and cramped and the carpeting is completely worn out. Having to negotiate steps with luggage going to the 5th and 6th floors is absurd. These rooms were intended for employees, not guests. While the view from the lobby, bar and dining room is jaw-dropping, the surrounding exterior of the hotel, (dirt), is not. The food is nice.

This inn has an amazing view & is of historic significance, but be advised that a 90 yr. old structure doesn't mean luxury. We could handle "roughing it" without AC, TV, hairdryer, & a coffee pot, but it was difficult to sleep because the wind howled all night through the door to our outside balcony. We finally stuffed towels into the gaps to get a bit of sound relief. Time to replace those doors. Overall, it's time for some upgrades, especially for the luxury price.

The location, the service and the afternoon tea were wonderful. The number of things available to do within a short distance was great. We hiked, biked, shopped, and went on an evening boat trip. Seeing the wildlife was a bonus.

Greatly enjoyed the incredibly helpful and knowledgeable staff, and the great views, including from all main floor rooms. Bedrooms were tight but comfortable. Advice on sites and hikes was thorough and welcomed.
