Lodging Style and Amenities

Perched on a promontory overlooking stunning Waterton Lake, this European-style, seven-story hotel's lobby windows frame a view of the seven-mile-long string of mountains that ring the lake. Built in 1927, the hotel was named for Great Britain's King Edward VIII, while he was Prince of Wales. This National Historic Site (Canada) has 86 rooms and is a good base for wilderness hiking, horseback rides and boat tours.

Take part in a unique Waterton tradition with Afternoon Tea at the Prince of Wales. Inspired by British tradition, Afternoon Tea features a selection of teas from Tea Forté and a variety of delectable sandwich squares and pastries.

Tea is served in the Prince of Wales lobby, which overlooks Waterton Lake for some of the most spectacular views around. Join us for this unique experience daily from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. during the Prince of Wales operating season.

The hotel is owned and operated by Glacier Park Inc.
