Great hotel but terrible restaurant experience
Hotel and staff were amazing. The room was clean and staff were super helpful. I needed a earlier checkin and they accommodated my request no questions asked. The hotel restaurant on the other hand was VERY disappointing. Our waitress was terrible!!! She would disappear forever and took way to long even just getting new waters. The food was amazing but WAY overpriced. Breakfast was almost $60 for the two of us and wasn’t any better than McDonald’s.

Nothing 4 star about this hotel.
I was planning to leave a 3 star review for this hotel - right in the middle. Not good, not bad, very few redeeming features and largely underwhelming but a mostly pleasant stay. The only stand out feature is the pool area which is actually what has caused me to leave this 1 star review. The pool area is great and they are doing their best through the pandemic to give each family a 30 minute slot. The booking system that they have set-up requires you to be at the front desk for 7am to book a slot for that day. Only in-person same day bookings are allowed. Except that the General Manager decided to book out all the morning slots on both the days that we stayed at the Royal Canadian Lodge for reasons unknown and she didn’t have the decency to inform her front desk staff of the reasons why. So they were left fending off angry hotel guests who had woken early to secure a time slot for their kids. I spoke with the GM who assured me she had not booked out the entire morning slots and that the front desk had taken bookings over the phone. So they somehow forgot that they had done that when they told us that the GM had booked out the entire morning, on both days. It’s nonsense. We won’t be returning here, even without the pool situation. There are far better options in Banff. Whoever gives out the hotel stars in Banff needs to take a star off this place.

Nice stay
Stay was comfortable and service was friendly. Had a fireplace and jetted tub in our room and both worked very nicely. Rooms seem a little older but style is pretty timeless and condition of the room was good. Would have liked to be a little closer to downtown in order to more easily bounce in and out of the hotel room when shopping, etc. but it's not a far walk. We were able to park on-site for the first night but they didn't have room for us on the second night so we had to find street parking a couple blocks away.
