Situated on the edge of the magnificent Lake Louise this charming, historic hotel is worth staying in. I had a good lake view which was spell binding.My room was fairly small but the lake view was great.The hotel features quirky fittings and old world charm.

We stayed one night as part of the Rocky Mountaineer train trip. For years I had seen the classic photo of the hotel and it's $Million view of the azure blue lake, so I looked forward to my stay there. Sometimes, when we have anticipated something for years, the final reality is disappointing; but in this case my stay lived... More

Lake Louise is a beautiful location, and The Fairmont is definitely in the best spot right on the lake. The service was good, was a little below average from a four diamond hotel but overall pretty friendly staff. Lago was great, and our server was excellent as well. The Lakeview Lounge was a nice place for an evening cocktail as... More

We were booked into the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise as part of our Rocky Mountaineer itinerary. We have traveled a lot, and Lake Louise is one of the most incredible views we've ever seen. We just sat by the lake and gaped at the view. It should not be missed. Having said that--- the Chateau is your only choice for... More

Lake Louise is a tourist attraction, I get it. I expect the lake to be busy with tourists. The hotel caters to day trippers as well a hotel guests, and this chasing of additional revenue totally dilutes the hotel residents experience. The lobby, restaurants hallways of the hotel are overrun with day trippers barging, overwhelming the restaurants and impeding the... More

We recently spent three nights at this property on the Gold Floor. Although pricey, the lounge offerings for breakfast and evening hors d'oeuvres were extensive and delicious and the room was fantastic. Our view of Lake Louise was like a post card and the room was very spacious with nice furnishings and a beautiful bathroom. The staff was very attentive.... More

Expensive, but worth it for a memorable experience. Views of the lake and mountains were breathtaking. Hotel and restaurant staff were friendly, helpful, and efficient. Enjoyed the hike to Lake Agnes and the Tea House, too.

The surrounding area is stunning and the hotel is overlooking the lake and the perfect location...however hotel felt like a Disney resort with hundreds of tourists and tour groups milling around it. Food was extortionate and not great quality. The room was great and the view exceptional but there was no air conditioning and heat was stifling which is not... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Fairmont Lake Louise earlier this week. Despite the hotel being very crowded, we really enjoyed our time there. We had a junior suite on the gold level. I highly recommend the gold level as it has separate check in and concierge service as well as breakfast and snacks. Our room was... More

I can't say enough about this hotel. We had a wonderful time. The room was gorgeous. We did have a more expensive room with floor to ceiling huge windows with amazing views overlooking the lake. Worth every penny. Bed was comfortable. Bath was really big and nice. Large separate sitting area. My only complaint was the food. Not much to... More
