This is our first time to experience Fairmont and it totally live up to our expectations. There is luxury in every detail. Elegant furrnitures, sophisticated interior design, spacious and luxurious rooms and of course immaculate views. We had the chance to try 2 of their restaurants, sumptous dinner in Poppy Brasserie and a wide-variety delectable breakfast buffet in Victoria room.... More

Our stay was during the slow period just before everything opened. We didn't have the opportunity to eat in the dining room, take the horse drawn sleigh or see the ice sculptures. They are all a must do, so we will be back in February 2015. Love the hotel especially the gold 7th floor. Fantastic breakfast and happy hour. Get... More

Driving from Calgary was a bit challenging in December but well worth the effort. We arrived to find the Chateau to be big and beautiful but somewhat dated. The rooms are small and need to be refurbished but the ambience is great. We snowshoed thru the woods which was like being in a movie. It was GORGEOUS! We didn't even... More

Perhaps Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is the most luxury hotel I have tried for personal holidays, not cheap definitely but worth. Gorgous view of Lake Louise from my own window, amazing sunset moment! It is hard to say the room is really luxury, the bed is very soft and comfortable. It was an excellent afternoon sitting at millionaire window of... More

It's true: the view of the lake, the great restaurants, and the incredible staff are the best part of the Chateau Lake Louise. Where the hotel is lacking is with renovations and updates. Once you get past the stunning beauty of the lobby, many places or items in the hotel are in need of repair or renovation which takes away... More

Valet parking was super busy, check-in was smooth and room was clean. The bathroom though.... very small! Oh well... who spends time in the bathroom?!! We had drinks down in the lounge and oh my...expensive. Nothing we didn't expect but an 8oz glass of white wine was over $20. We ate dinner later in the Fairmont dining room. Staff, service... More

As most of the reviews here, the Fairmont Chateau is simply amazing. The views are surreal. I recommend a room facing the lake for an amazing view, and also on the Gold floor. With all the food and snacks offered,and being placed on a high floor, it is actually worth the extra price. Try to ask for a room in... More

The 2nd time here in winter.It is a Unique place for conferences and pleasure, spacious rooms with a great view on the lake. It is located close to Banff and good ski slopes. The hotel serves good food and feels like a home away from home.
