Although our schedule did not allow time to stay overnight at the Fairmont Chateau, we did enjoy a delightful lunch and casual walk around the grounds. If we ever get to return, this would definitely be a place we would consider staying overnight. Beautiful structure, gorgeously landscaped properties. Very enjoyable!!

I love the hotel. It reminds me of Europe. I love having afternoon tea there with the view of the lake in front of me.

Went here in August 2012 and stopped for a few hours. With its secluded location, the chateau, I must say it's definitely one of the prettiest places I've been.

The views and ambience are obviously worth the trip, however, the food more than made up the negative difference to make a potentially spectacular visit simply average. Wait staff were caring and prompt, the view obviously very good. The food was at best average, paying 5-star prices for 1/2-1-star food. Not what one expects from a Fairmont Hotel and certainly...

You would think this hotel would just coast on their fabulous location. Instead the service and accommodations are outstanding. They have a check in service in advance so that when you drive up you get your room key. No line, no wait. The concierge was wonderful with great ideas on things to do in the area. The wait staff at... More

Amazing stay and amazing dinner while staying at the hotel. The view from the room was beautiful. Wonderful way to spend a romantic weekend away.

Late April 2014, during a trip for a wedding in Banff alberta, we took a half-day to visit Lake Louise. Even in winter conditions, it was a nice trip. Totally different from a summertime visit - different, yet beautiful vistas. Of course, the chateau was a lovely walk-through and I got to purchase, for my wife, a lovely ammolite pendant... More

A thoroughly unspectacular building in front of a very spectacular view. Visit for the view, not for the hotel.

If this isn't one of the most beautiful hotel locations in the world, I want to know where else to go. We didn't want to leave our room with its spectacular view of the lake and the mountains and the glacier. Summer time spot for renting a canoe or walking. Great location. Expensive indulgence, but worth it
