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.
