Today the hotel is still a big draw, if not for the structure itself, because of the unbelievable view. Unlike so many other historic properties in the Rockies, the exterior of the Prince of Wales Hotel appears almost unchanged from how it looked back when it was built. The architecture echoes that of an alpine chalet one might expect to see in Europe, and the original timber-framed interior still remains. Appropriately, the Prince of Wales Hotel was designated a National Historic Site in 1995.
