So glad we choose it, it's decent place for staying in Waterton Park. It was worth its 3 stars.
Convenient base for 3 nights. The standard king room we were provided was excellent. Furthermore, they offer WiFi.
Mostly the spectular views and old charming character of the hotel.
The size of the tub
The views...it was easy to walk down into the town, quiet in the evening.
No hair dryer!! No coffee maker in the room... Also the sink to wash up was in the room at the end of the bed, while the shower had no place to put your soap, shampoo. Awkward!!
The best thing about the hotel was the view. It was spectacular with the lake, the mountains and the town all within one shot. Access to the town was nice, just a short walk to eat and shop and see things there. The room was comfortable and gave us everything we needed. It helped that the wind blew hard outside and we didn't feel it inside as you sometimes do with older, rustic inns, lodges and hotels. Good windows I guess you'd say. Chris, one of the bellmen, and Will, one of the managers, were great. Very helpful with information about the area for running, the boat trips, etc.
There was nothing we didn't like about the hotel. We were only there 2 days but had a great experience.
Historic nature of the hotel and in particular the location. The staff was very friendly and attentive and was anxious for the hotel closing for the season.
Room furnishing need to be updated. Carpets need to be cleaned or replaced. Newer vinyl windows were already failing. For the rates charged the facility should be better.
Picturesque hotel in perfect location overlooking the town of Waterton. The hotel is very old and does not have modern conveniences (TV, WiFi, etc.). The cost is extremely high. You are really paying for the history and location of this hotel. It is very decadent. I would recommend staying there for 1 night and then going to a cheaper place for the rest of your stay.
Rooms were old and stale, considering the very steep price The bathroom facilities were very poor. This Place gives Rustic a whole new meaning. We cancelled our second night, incurring a cancellation fee rather than "roughing it" one more night.
We have stayed several times over the past 26 years and have always enjoyed the views, service and food.
I grew up not far from Watertown and always thought of it as being very romantic. Also, I grew up hearing stories of how my great grandfather, a master carpenter, built the stairs! I always dreamed of spending my honeymoon there. Now, on our 20 years anniversary, my husband surprised me and we were able to come back and spend a night. It was fabulous! I am amazed at the architectural detail and that the craftsmen that built it were able to accomplish that with none of the tools that we rely on today! It is truly a beautiful building! If given the opportunity, I will be back!
While I loved the atmosphere if the building, my husband commented on the fact that if we had spent the same amount of money on a hotel somewhere else, we would be really disappointed. He wanted a tv! But don't ever put them in the rooms, it would ruin them!
This hotel was built in the 1920's and has remained true to that time period. The bathrooms appear to be as they were at that time. The rooms have had sprinkler systems and vinyl windows installed. Chairs and desk appeared to be from the 50's or so. Beyond that, you won't find any modern influences. The bed was comfortable. Due to outside temperature, we didn't need to use any heat or cooling so can't speak to that.
For the cost of the room, would like to have seen more appealing decor in the room. It appeared to be designed on a very tight budget which would explain the mid-century furniture.
The setting is stunning. Waterton National Park, like Glacier, is absolutely gorgeous. The hotel is beautiful and historic. Cuisine is excellent, pub is friendly, and the college kids that mostly work there are friendly and enthusiastic.
Lack of sound proofing. The walls are paper thin and you can hear your neighbors better than your own breathing at times.
