We've stayed here twice......Dec 21 / Jan 22. The rooms were clean and beds are comfortable. There was a lot of snow both time we there. And yet there was no snow removal in their parking lot. No salt on the sidewalks. Will be back next off-season.

this was a last minute 2 hours before to detour off the highway and stay here in the park. We had two choices of hotel and even though this one did not have a pool decided to try it. Very nicely decorated we rented the romantic room for 149.00 plus tax with a fireplace (can only be used for brief periods or its too hot in the room) and a lovely soaker tub fits 2 it drains very slow but still nice. Good size fridge and microwave coffee pot, loved the 2 sinks and ample space in the bathroom with a large glass door shower. the king bed was a comfy dream after a long drive and pillows good too lots of them. large tv with good channels had a great mountain view we were facing the street on the second floor, second from the end. our view was obscured by the large overhang that covered the deck too cold to use, which turned out good after all cause gale force windows shook the window high up and doors all night and i think it would have been worse in the other rooms further down with no overhang to protect. The light from the building comes directly in the loft window all night which i did not discover till bedtime just bring an eye cover i used a towel and ear plugs for the wind if present i used paper towel in a pinch. Friendly staff ! the set up to get to the rooms is odd you have to check in the front and GPS seems confused about the location and tries to take you to the hotel right accross. Then drive around the building to the parking lot in the back and enter your room up the stairs. People with mobility issues would want a first floor room. there was practically no one in the what felt like ghost town with only the liquor store open, its only end of April, and a hot dog place. Looks like some nice shops in full season, right now only two restaurants both in the hotels open with limited hours, we had packed food so not an issue. WE had horrendous wind and snow conditions off and on it would be good one minute and howling the next, could not walk without it feeling like stinging knives in your face so we drove around after supper. This seems like a small area and 70 percent of the park was burned in 2017 so no trees practically, it would be congested i would think in summer. The prince of wales hotel looked lovely perched up on top built in 1927. Waterton has stunning mountain views for sure and the beautiful still partly frozen lake was very nice to walk around the next day before we left and the sun came out but this must be the windiest place in Alberta right now LOL

As usual it was quiet and room was beautiful however the tv didn’t work, lamps missing light bulbs, cleaning was okay. My husband fell down a flight of stairs because they weren’t shovelled at all knee deep down the stairs at ten am. We had to dig the entire parking lot because it wasn’t plowed to get our vehicle out. We understand a huge snowfall came down but the entire lots were knee deep in snow the entrance to the hotel wasn’t shovelled.

Great retreat during bad weather

A two night stay in the romantic suite was booked well in advance, so we took our chance with December weather in a mountain setting. The weather was horrible (windy, even for Waterton, plus snow that would sting the face when we did go outside) so our room was a very nice retreat. Good size, fireplace that kept the room toasty warm, comfortable bed and jacuzzi that got a lot of use. The view was nice and we were on the protected side of the building so did not have excessive wind noise. The short walk to the Red Rock Trattoria was also appreciated. Staff were very efficient and friendly, with check in and check out extremely smooth. Already planning our next stay.

We had a great stay at the Waterton Glacier suites! We originally had been placed in a romance suite (when we had booked a deluxe suite ) and the hotel staff quickly swapped rooms for us. The suite had a sitting area, with a corridor type area to the bedroom also with a door, making a cozy dark room for our little one. They had a playpen on site, which the staff brought and helped us set up. The room came with a mini fridge, a coffee maker and a microwave. We went pretty late in the season with not too much left open and no real gluten free options so we packed our own breakfast and sandwiches. The king sized bed was firm but we both slept well. It’s so centrally located - we walked everywhere and even to the trail head of our hikes (what a treat!) Didn’t eat at the restaurant but it smelled heavenly! Will check it out next time!
