In Banff, Alberta, the Mount Royal Hotel has reopened with a design concept inspired by the property’s 100-year-old heritage, combined with modern elements. Canadian design firm Dialog was involved in the property’s redevelopment.

The 133-room hotel, owned and operated by Brewster Travel Canada, was closed in December 2016 following a fire. It now has a rooftop lounge with outdoor hot tubs, a custom-designed museum, and a hotel library.

Custom headboards from Toronto’s Moss & Lam art studio serve as the centerpiece in each guestroom. Guestrooms have mountain views of the Banff landscape.

Additionally, Vancouver-based consultancy firm Farmboy Fine Arts complemented the design with more than 200 curated pieces that reflect contemporary and modern genres alongside reimagined historic works from Banff’s Whyte Museum.

The Mount Royal Hotel is located on the corner of Banff Avenue and Caribou Street.
