Waterton Lakes NP

Prince of Wales Hotel

Prince of Wales Hotel view from lobby/dining room

Waterton Lakes National Park, Canada - adjoining sister park to America's Glacier National Park. The focal point is the beautiful lake of course but the crowning glory is the Prince of Wales Hotel built in 1926-1927. There is a quaint little town site and several scenic drives to see waterfalls and canyons.

Ohhh my goodness. I can't believe you get to see this lovely local. When I worked for Osborne Incentive Travel, I tried to convince my boss that we needed a group trip to this hotel. Lucky, lucky you!
