Featured Reviews
  • The staff at the hotel were nothing but welcoming and accommodating. The space is beautiful, relaxing, and convenient. Will be the only place we stay when we return to Revelstoke.

    “Wonderful Anniversary Ski Trip”, TripAdvisor, Feb 2022
  • Searching for a small hotel with character, we lucked out finding the Explorers Society Hotel! It is no small feat to renovate an older heritage building – to maintain historic components and yet incorporate elegant and contemporary design features. Need I add that the mattress in our room was the best yet – we felt like we were at home! And a delicious breakfast as well.

    “A True Gem in Revelstoke”, TripAdvisor May, 2022
  • Truly a special find. Unmistakably a life’s work, this property begs for your time. The people were a perfect reflection of the real estate: both committed to providing a memorable experience. Don’t miss The Explorers Society when you come through Revy… it’s really that good.

    “Over the Top Service, Property”, TripAdvisor, January 2018
  • The Explorers Society Hotel, is an absolutely INCREDIBLE place to stay while visiting Revelstoke. A real “gem” nestled in the mountains. We just returned from a 4 night stay, and we will never stay anywhere else in Revelstoke!! We received such a warm and genuine welcome, it felt as though we were coming home.

    “Incredible Hotel”, TripAdvisor, Aug 2017
  • I have traveled and stayed in some the world’s best hotels…I can’t say I have ever had a more pleasant hotel experience. I have never written an online review before, but this place was worth it!
