BANFF, Alta. — The Mount Royal Hotel in Banff, Alta. has reopened following extensive renovations valued at approximately $45-million.
The historic hotel, which is part of the Banff Jasper Collection by Pursuit, suffered extensive fire damage in December 2016.
“The reopening of the Mount Royal Hotel will provide a truly unforgettable Banff experience for today’s modern traveller, bringing together a thoughtful juxtaposition of rich history and contemporary design,” says Dave McKenna, president, Banff Jasper Collection by Pursuit.
The property’s new design — created by Dialog design firm — honours the hotel’s heritage through historically inspired decor while offering new contemporary amenities. Guestrooms feature custom-made headboards by Toronto’s Moss & Lam art studio, which serve as the centerpiece in each of the hotel’s 133 guestrooms.
The hotel also features a rooftop lounge with outdoor hot tubs, a custom-designed museum and a hotel library.
