My husband and I stayed at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise for 3 nights in November. We stayed in a junior suite with a lake view and I would highly recommend spending the extra money for a lake view. It was awesome to open the drapes each morning and look at the amazing lake. The walk around the lake is beautiful. The hotel atmosphere is cozy and peaceful. The restaurants did not disappoint but high tea was a little pricey (a little over $90 complete for two) for the value, and I wouldn't recommend it for that reason. The service was superior in all aspects (valet, restaurants, concierge, shops, housekeeping, etc) and well worth the price. There's a great deli where it was easy to pick up some fancy room "snackies". At breakfast on our last morning our server very pleasantly surprised us by letting us know the highway conditions for our drive home, unasked!
