We got to Lake Louise just in time to see the beauty & splendour late in the day...lucky because next morning, it was fog so thick we couldn't see out the window. So if you want to guarantee viewings, you may need to stay more than one day. Conversely, there is not that much to do as far as other... More

If you have to ask "how much", this is not the place for you. That said, Wow! In our party, the rooms were spotty. Ours was great. Hint: Join the President's Club ahead of time and you should get an upgrade, if available. Don't waste your time going into town. Book your dinner reservations at the Fairview we'll in advance....

Yes, it's touristy, but it's gorgeous. Beautiful hotel, breathtaking location, great hikes, and multiple opportunities for picturesque photos.

Beautiful hotel is a just so perfect location at the head of Lake Louise. Windows in the hotel's main restaurant and lounge overlook the lake and mountains. The grounds are just magnificent with superb flower beds, tubs and hanging baskets. Inside, an aura of olde worlde charm pervades the elegant décor and ambience. If you don't actually stay here you... More

Neat hotel with great history and a superb location. Don't expect anything quaint or charming, it's big, rambling and expensive. Great little hikes in the area and the lake itself is beautiful. Hordes of jostling tourists, so patience is needed. Good tip, park at hotel, rather than in public lots. Shaded and the hotel will credit you with what you... More

The beauty of the hotel is what is behind it.. Lake Louise. I was lucky enough to stay at the Fairmont for work six years ago and returned this summer. Taking in the beauty of Lake Louise is something special that you'll always remember.

We can highly recommend a visit to this beautiful spot of the world. Photos look like postcards I can still vividly see this spectacular place even now when I close my eyes. The fairmont delivers mouth watering food with spectacular views. Definitly make it a stop whenever you visit

We loved the location, and enjoyed our lunch at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. Next time, we'd opt for the Afternoon Tea.

Although we didn't stay here, the building is impressive. The views are spectacular and the water is inviting, but way too cold.
