Beautiful View From Front of The Hotel.

We travel past Lake Louise often when going to visit family in BC. We try to stop in at Lake Louise at least once a year. We get the park pass for the day so we can stop here and... read more

We travel past Lake Louise often when going to visit family in BC. We try to stop in at Lake Louise at least once a year. We get the park pass for the day so we can stop here and in Banff. It is so very pretty! It is a nice place to stop for an hour or so and... More

This may have been the most beautiful hotel that I've ever seen. The mountains and the crystal clear water were hypnotic. The food, room service, restaurant and entertainment were top notch.

A great place nestled between the mountains, staff is friendly, may dinning options and activities to par take in. Some are chargeable and well worth it and some are free like hiking to the tea house.

Hotel is lucky to be right beside the lake, there is a restaurant which overlooks the lake and the mountain but they charge an arm and a leg. You're only here once so why not pay $20CAD for a sandwich haha!!! You get to eat your sandwich and see the magnificent lake at the same time

It is a beautiful hotel. The afternoon tea is fun and their special champagne on ice is a nice treat. I have a dairy allergy and they were able to accommodate that issue. The only restaurant we ate at located on the premises that wasn't up on what dairy is was their fondue/Austrian/German restaurant. They served me food that contained... More

This is just like the postcards with the beautiful lake and snow mountains. Our accommodation was amazing and the breakfast the next morning was great, we had dinner in the Italian restaurant in the hotel and that was really good as well. Staff were very attentive

Beautiful location and worth the splurge to stay here but please spring for a lakeview room. Great hikes right out the back door of the hotel. Recommend the "Plain of Six Glaciers". Disliked the expensive daily self parking rate over $23.00 daily and $15 for high speed wifi unless you're a President's Club member.

Our 9 day round trip drive holiday in the Rockies staying at Fairmont Resorts (Banff Springs, Lake Louise and Jasper) was excellent. The scenery spectacular, especially seeing snow on the ground and frozen lakes. Coming from Australia you just don't see such winter/spring beauty. Fairmont Lake Louise was mid holiday and we only planned to enjoy the resort and rest... More

Magical place. Beautiful place to stay. Beautiful rooms but had no air conditioning which made the rooms very hot. The room overlooked the lake and the view was lovely as the lake was still frozen. Restaurant was lovely- pub type meals. Great atmosphere and good service. Customer service was fantastic all staff were very friendly and helpful.
