We stayed there first in 1974 - the first winter opening for years. Since then we have returned many times. The price is not for the budget minded but even a one night stay is memorable. Walks around the lake even in winter are magical - in summer wear the bug repellent at all times especially in the shade. The... More

Good shops and nice restaurants. Fantastic view of course and wonderful walks. A bit too big and full of conferences for our liking.

Staying at The Fairmont Chateau, for me, was one of those 'once-in-a-life-time' experiences. The view from the room alone was spectacular. The rooms were fantastic, large, spacious and a fantastic bathroom. We ate at the downstairs restaurant which was beautiful over looking the lake. Staff were very friendly too.

the Gold floor is amazing! Lake views, large rooms, very nice and helpful staff and a fantastic lodge for breakfasts and 5 o'clock snacks! The chateau is also catering more than ever to cross-country skiers.. so we felt very welcome! We will be back!

Very nice hotel. Friendly staff. What I noticed however, was nearly everyone staying at the hotel seemed to be from the U.S. Nothing wrong with that I suppose, but on recent trip my family and I stayed at a lodge tucked up in the mountain. At that location, I think we were the only Americans. You will like this hotel... More

One downside of living next to a national park in the US? Whenever we travel, our reaction is usually, "It's pretty, but it's not as nice as home." We never thought to utter that phrase while visiting Banff and the Chateau Lake Louise. Words can't describe the splendor of this property and the surrounding area. We visited for the first... More

The fairmont LL was our base of a ski-holiday in LL. We really enjoyed the Christmas activities organised by the hotel. All the extras provided (sweets and filled stockings, Santa bringing a gift for all kids, warm chocolate milk when you exited the ski-bus) by the hotel during this period made the stay extra special. The hotel location is beautiful... More
