The Prince of Wales Hotel
As you drive into Waterton you will see tourists stopping by the road to photograph this most famous hotel sitting on its bluff. 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 landmark known throughout the world.
The lobby and dining room overlook Upper Waterton Lake and Glacier National Park.
The Prince of Wales Hotel is named after Prince Edward. It's worth a stop if only to have lunch or afternoon tea or to browse the large gift shop. The bellman will greet you in his kilt and you may feel that you are visiting Scotland.
