BANFF — Canada Day had extra special meaning for Banff’s iconic Mount Royal Hotel, which officially reopened its doors on July 1 following a devastating fire in December 2016.

Part of the Pursuit collection of travel experiences in the Canadian Rockies, the 133-room hotel has been successfully restored to its former beauty and now features a selection of contemporary and modern artworks as well as custom-made headboards from Toronto’s Moss & Lam art studio to serve as centerpieces in all guestrooms.
