With a Hogwarts-like setting on a bluff overlooking Upper Waterton Lake, the grand Prince of Wales blends Swiss-style architecture with the atmosphere of a Scottish castle. The old-world charms extend to serving staff in kilts and high tea in the main lounge – very civilized. The large lake-facing windows show the raw wilderness that awaits.

The rooms aren't particularly inspiring, though – the charm is in the setting and common areas. This regal hotel was the brainchild of Louis Hill; built in 1927 by the US-owned Great Northern Railway, it was the only Canadian link in its chain of historic accommodations.
