Lake Louise and the Chateau building are totally amazing and a must look if you are doing the Rockies. I travelled with another couple and we agreed that the hotel was run disgustingly. Admittedly we didnt have a lakeview room as they were sold out and this may have helped a little. Our disappointments were, firstly on arrival you have... More

This hotel has the most wonderful view surrounded by Lake Louise, mountains and a glacier. We had a lake view room, worth the extra money if you can swing it. It is really unsurpassed as far as hotels views go. The hotel is very formal, yet we didn't feel out of place in our hiking clothes. The staff was very... More

The setting of Lake Louise is simply breathtaking. The view from our room was ridiculously beautiful- like opening the curtains to a post card. As with most older Fairmont properties the rooms are a little on the small side but the decor is very nice and again that view certainly makes up for the size. We stayed on the gold... More

What a fantastic setting, our bedroom view was breathtaking. Excellent room, lovely service and a good selection of restaurants. We went for a lovely after-dinner walk down by the lake. Be sure to make use of the shuttle service to the gondola.

Great location and staff. It is best place to stay in Lake Louise. Room sizes are small, but location, amenities and staff make up for old hotel room sizes. Room recommendation- get room with lake view and avoid "Heritage Rooms without A/C. Sunrise from lake room view is simply the best, when weather cooperates.

We stayed for 2 nights on the Gold Suites on the top floor, your own chef, evening turndown, afternoon cocktails. The view from our window to this day has to be the most beautiful sight I've ever seen, truly breathtaking. This hotel is not cheap but the service and location are the best, we ate in the main restaurant, which... More

This is one of the most if not the grandest hotel that I have ever seen west of the Rockies. The architecture is something to behold. They were re roofing some of the highest parts of it the day I visited and being in construction I couldn't stop watching them work. If you ever get close do not miss this... More

Do not accept a room on a low level at the coach car park end of hotel. Noise from coaches constantly reversing and braking and voices of hotel patrons taking photos carry from edge of lake below. As no bookings taken for Fairmont Lounge you must queue up to 20mins before lounge opens 11:30 to acquire a table.

Booked a lake view room and not many hotels have a view to rival this... The concierge...wow, I suppose they merely did their job, but they were able to handle every question and request I brought to them (reservations, gondola questions, hiking to Fairview Mountain summit, driving, etc). The Walliser Stube and Lago were both visited, both were good although... More
