I think this is one of my favorite hotels of all time. We had the most beautiful room overlooking Lake Louise. The gentleman checking us in apologized that they don't have air conditioning. That seems very funny now for a lake view room. You just open your windows and the icy glacier air pours in. With that air and that... More

This is quite an old hotel and in parts it shows. To be clear the staff, facilities are all excellent. The rooms are a bit small (our bathroom was tiny!) but well equipped and we had a lake view which was lovely. The good bedding etc that you can expect from Fairmont is here and the hotel has good restaurant... More

Staying at the Chateau has been a great experience. The lobby is fantastic, and the view of the lake is outstanding. You definitely pay for the name though as the room was extremely small, yet over $400 per night.

We stayed at various Fairmont hotels, and this was our favorite. Great, great views. Service was excellent, room was very clean, staff was friendly and efficient. You have to take a shuttle or bus into town.

Chateau Lake Louise has by far the best location in the Banff area. The hotel is the best I've stayed in as far as comfort, cleanliness and quietness. There are many hikes just from the hotel grounds. It's pricey and parking is extra, but it is a cut above everything else.

As a part if our trip we had to visit Chateau Lake Louise, a hotel our family has stayed in many times. We were very disappointed in the level of service, particularly in the Dining Room. We had window table reservations that had been made months before, but were not seated in our desired location, despite being dressed "to the... More

We stayed two nights on our wedding anniversary, before we continue our trip to Jasper Fairmount Hotel. The hotel is magnificent in every detail, with lots of character, elegant, very cozy. From the outside, the hotel really looks like a castle, one of the most beautiful in the world we have ever visited. The suite we stayed in was not... More

Chateau Lake Louise is one of the truly spectacular spots in the Canadian Rockies to visit and stay. I was fortunate to attend a conference at the Chateau from May 24th - May 27th. It is late spring in the Rockies and the ice was just finishing melting off the lake over the time I was there. The weather can... More

The Fairmont Chateau, built on the shore of Lake Louise, Canada, in the late 19th century provides first-rate accommodation. My very comfortable room had a beautiful view of the lake and mountains. The staff were helpful and competent and although this hotel isn't within close walking distance to the township, shops can be located within this large, luxury establishment. The... More
