The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is an historic hotel set overlooking the Lake Louise Glacier. It is defintely worth a visit - even if you do not stay overnight.

Beautiful property, room, amenities, and would love to stay here again. We had a lake view jr. king room......fantastic! I loved sitting in the window seat and gazing out on Lake Louise.The room and bathroom were first class. There is no a/c, but we did not need it during our stay. Guess this could be a problem if hot.

If you're not going to stay in Banff, you end up being a little out of the way for a lot of activities, but not here. It's a gorgeous place to situate yourself if you can afford the rates in peak season (ouch!). With Lake Louise right off the back porch, it's tough to beat!

Possibly the highlight of the vacation. To arrive, open your curtains and be met with the most wonderful view. A pure dream, a picture card for real. The hotel is everything you would expect of a Fairmont. First class amenities, food and service. Expect to spend though, we stocked up for a walk around the lake and the deli served... More

An early start to our day necessitated a breakfast stop at the Fairmont. Some of our group had the buffet whilst others chose the a la carte. Food and service were beyond reproach, but what differentiates this restaurant and hotel is the sublime view of the lake and the glacier which elevates the experience to a totally different level

I was very happy to be able to afford to stay here at this hotel. It is not cheap but it is worth every penny. There were even cotton robs waiting for us in our rooms. And glass wine-glasses. No fake plastics. The staff was so nice and courteous that I wanted stay there forever. There are several restaurants to... More

We did not stay here but dined while spending time hiking around Lake Louise. The lake was crawling with tourists, who inevitably spilled into the hotel but surprisingly the several restaurants within the hotel had seating available. We went for the pub restaurant on the ground floor (it did not have direct access to the lake on the day we... More

Although we didn't stay at the hotel, we were able to see quite a bit of it and it looked very cool. Very upscale and elegant.

We did not stay here, but have eaten here several times. The deli / bakery offers very good food at a reasonable price. The seating is somewhat limited though.
