Lonely Planet review
You can't come to Waterton and not check out this iconic alpine landmark. Situated to take full advantage of the best view in town, this hotel is nothing short of spectacular. When seen from a distance, the serene scene is perhaps the most photogenic in all the Canadian Rockies.
Up close, the old girl is starting to show her age, but she's aging like a fine wine. The grand lobby is illuminated with a chandelier worthy of a Scottish castle, and the elevator is the oldest working example in North America. The rooms are small but retain the classic feel of this historical hotel. There's antique porcelain in the bathrooms and views that justify the price.
Our independent authors have visited Prince of Wales Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Waterton Lakes National Park.
