I’ve been in the lobby, the gift shop and the bar, but I will never afford a room.

Built in 1927, this historical hotel sits high on a bluff overlooking the Waterton Village. One of 2 National Historic sites in the Park, the Prince of Wales was built to lure tourists north of the border via the Great Northern Railway. One of the largest all-wood buildings in Alberta, it has survived wind, fire and even the Depression of the 1930’s to become a cultural landmark known by photograph alone throughout the world.

From its impressive lobby, you can look through wall-to-ceiling windows for a breathtaking view of Upper Waterton Lake and beyond to Goat Haunt in Glacier National Park, Montana. The Prince of Wales hotel is not only an architectural landmark; it has become a well-known sentinel that welcomes visitors into the Village of Waterton.
