Amazing location.

Imposing building on the lake, maybe not to everyones taste but there's no denying how impressive it is, and somehow it makes it better knowing parts of it are quite old. We had... read more

Imposing building on the lake, maybe not to everyones taste but there's no denying how impressive it is, and somehow it makes it better knowing parts of it are quite old. We had dinner here overlooking the lake, it was reasonably priced, but really it's all about the view.

The Chateau is a beautiful hotel inside and out! I really enjoy coming here, getting a coffee and sitting outside to breathe in the cool mountain air. There are some lovely shops inside the Chateau, although some of the stuff is quite expensive!

Not as majestic as the Banff Springs Hotel nor rustic as Jasper Park Lodge, the Chateau Lake Louise is still an elegant enough hotel with a dash of Swiss flavour. But let's face it, everything about it is designed to get you looking out onto the real spectacle, which is Lake Louise itself. The Banff Springs Hotel is an attraction... More

The Chateau Lake Louise is a fabulous location. The restaurants are good to excellent and it is a beautiful place to stay. There were a few glitches during our stay-no hot water one afternoon in our room. Also, the indoor pool and spa facilities do not compare to the Banff Springs hotel. Lots of kids going in and out of... More

visit for the view ... unmatched in any mountain setting. Service and rooms are great, and the restaurants offer good meal selection.

This hotel is a must see...everything from the huge formal public spaces, the grand views of the lake and mountains, the impeccable customer service and the good food make it a bucket list event. There were many many little kind acts offered to me by the staff....they went out of their way repeatedly. Example: they drove me to another hotel... More

Hiking in the winter to Johnston Canyon Falls and up Mount Victoria on snowshoes was a lifetime highlight. The tour guide gave a full history lesson and provided enjoyment and knowledge throughout. Ski Lake Louise shuttle was a 10 minute drive.
