This hotel is in a fantastic location for exploring Banff, Jasper, and Yoho. A short 90 minutes from the Calgary airport, it's an ideal landing spot for excellent hiking and luxurious environs. BUT, the rest of the world figured out the same thing and every day bus trip stops here. The hotel itself is massive too--a bit overwhelming. Two complaints:... More

For the cost of accommodation, while the view was astounding, the hotel service was appalling. It took 3 hours to check, the food in the Walliser Stube restaurant was of very poor quality. The wine was excellent. To this exceptional hot weather, our Lake view room had no air conditioning. Lake Louise is a must see, it was disappointing to... More

Just imagine: Waking up to the most spectacular view of the Snow capped Canadian Rockie mountains framed by your French doors of your Chateau room. You are snuggled in the comfort of your pillow soft bed enjoying the view in the temperature controlled atmosphere of your luxury room overlooking Lake Louise. Everything was an experience in itself from the fine... More

We had a lake view room, and it truly was. Just beautiful to wake up too. Service was great and the food very good. Great walking trails around the lake, and the walk up to the tea house worth the hike.

We stayed at the Fairmont Lake Louise as part of the Rocky Moutaineer trip. The view from our room was absolutely stunning - Lake Louise right in front of us. The pub was rather strange - we had to wait for a server to check that tables hadn't been booked - most of them inside were empty and we felt... More

Staying at this property is a treat. Quality and service at every turn. Each person you encounter is so pleasant and extends themselves to ensure you are happy. The food at the restaurants Poppy and Wallis Stub are gastronomic delights. Compliments to the chefs. And all of this is an addition the unbelievable views. It just doesn't get old.

It is like a mini palace! My freinds and I stayed at the chateau for some getaway time. Great place but a little pricey. Great food. The pool was relaxing. I would stay here again.(if I had the money)

We had a stunning lake and mountain glacier view. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous. Rooms are a bit small but the views are worth it. Staff are fabulous and so attentive. We only had one night here which was disappointing as I could have stayed a lot longer. Looked after very well.

Stayed for 2 nights in a suite overlooking Lake Louise in June. The view was absolutely breathtaking. The hotel itself was fabulous. The food in the restaurant overlooking the lake was good but not exceptional. There was a hiccup regarding the booking of the table but it was sorted out satisfactorily. The room we had was excellent and the service... More
