Patchwork Canadiana

The Mount Royal Hotel is one of the most significant hotels in Banff, representing a full city block in the heart of downtown. After a devastating fire, the hotel has been redesigned to celebrate its rich history while providing guests with the ultimate Albertan experience.

A nod to history

With a history spanning over a century, MRH is a layered piece of architecture, representing four eras (40’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s). The design inspiration reimagines the building as a quilt, symbolizing the different generations of the hotel coming together as a significant piece of Canadiana, emulating the “patchwork of architecture.”

Historic feel, modern amenities

Collaborating with the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies, historic and archived materials such as posters, photos, and original check-in books offer a curated museum experience for the guests.

Mountain moments

The downstairs lobby acts as a place of community interaction and engagement, welcoming the general public. The second floor includes a lounge area, allowing a comfortable setting for guests to relax and check-in as a start to their journey at the hotel.
