Resiliant Royal Hotel

In March 2020, for the first time in it’s 112-year-old history, Chilliwack’s historic Royal Hotel dimmed the lights, locked the front doors and did not re-open until June 2020.


The far-reaching effects of the Covid 19 pandemic on the tourism industry are widely known. It basically began in February of last year; when word that a virus was spreading quickly through cruise ships. In the weeks following, nearly every phone call that came into the hotel was a cancellation. 


Since re-opening in June, the hotel has had to adapt to this new reality of running a hotel while ensuring all Covid 19 safety protocols are being followed. This includes continuously sanitizing public spaces and guest rooms - and unfortunately minimizing personal interactions with guests.

Checking in and out of the hotel is now nearly contactless – and soon that contact will be eliminated altogether when new coded door locks are installed throughout the hotel. Guests will be sent a code which will allow them to access both the hotel’s front and room doors for truly keyless entry. 


Communication with guests is by text and email - and rooms are only serviced by housekeeping staff once guests have checked out.


Original Hotel Doors will Remain 


These changes are necessary to ensure the Royal Hotel remains relevant and guests feel safe & confident in their decision to stay with us.


Book in confidence at Chilliwack’s historic Royal Hotel.


We look forward to having you stay with us.
