Ridiculous price for what you get. The rooms are nice but nothing special (we were on the gold floor.) blow dryer didn't work when we got in and I waited about an hour for a new one to be brought up. The worst thing was that the pool was closed and nobody informed us beforehand or when we were there.... More

We were really looking forward to our trip to Lake Louise. It all started out when our room wasn't ready by 4:00 PM which is check in time. They took our cell phone number, but never called us! When we finally got to our room it was very hot. There was no air conditioning and even though we had a... More

We arrived in Lake Louise after a road trip from Sparkling Hills Resort (see my other review, that resort didn't do so well). We were greeted with a room key and brought up to the Fairmont Gold Floor. Our room was ready, clean and our guests visiting North America for the first time started crying at the amazing view from... More

This was my first trip to Lake Louise and this hotel. It surpassed my expectations. Everything about it was first class from the food to the room. The bed was especially comfortable. Bathroom was big!

Great views of Lake Louise, but no A/C and does get very crowded. Good restaurants and bar on site. Easy access into Banff or Jasper, and Banff National Park. Not much else in Lake Louise though, so you are tied to the Hotel quite a bit.

We stopped in to eat at the restaurant and were treated poorly, horrible service and the food was not worth the big bucks. The view from the restaurant was gorgeous, but that is the only positive. Will not be returning to this place for a bite to eat.

We stayed at the Fairmont Banff Springs last summer, and drove over to Lake Louise one day. As we came around the corner of the Chateau Lake Louise, my first glimpse of the lake took my breath away. We vowed to return this summer and stay at the Chateau. The lake is so beautiful, in the morning sunrise, during the... More

I'd dreamed of staying here for years: uh oh, that could be a set-up for a major let down. It wasn't. Not at all. The hotel is lovely, the appointments are elegant, the service exceptional. The setting is drop-dead gorgeous. We stayed on the Gold level floor (hence the great service) with an incredible lake view. Just outstanding.

While the location of this hotel is incredibly beautiful, all rooms are not created equal. You may pay more than $500 per night for a room in the old section of the hotel. For this privilege, you will have a musty room without air conditioning, and a hallway that smells of day old coffee. If you complain enough they will... More

As a family of 5, we stayed in one of their suites, which worked out perfectly for us. Some guests complained that their room did not have air conditioning, but ours did. However, it gets so cold at night that if you leave your window cracked out you will be fine without it. The beds are extremely comfortable! We had... More
