“Well worth the dollars, opt for lake view room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

We paid an optional very small fee to upgrade to the Fairmont Gold experience, where do I start.....worth every single dollar, the experience was amazing.
From valet parking to the no queuing check in thanks to the 'Swiss Guides' who greeted us and checked us in.
I will never forget the stunning view when opening to door, to see the most magical scene.
Large room,two windows, you can lay in bed and gaze at Victoria Glacier or sit in comfy leather chairs and gaze at the glacier....fridge, TV, safe, full bath with shower, spotlessly clean.
The Gold lounge lacks the lake view, but the staff are attentive and courteous, fabulous breakfast, hot, cold, every type of beverage you can think of. They will even serve a party in the lounge area.
Thank you so much Fairmont, my stay truly exceeded all my expectations and that view, it's one of the gotta do experiences if you are in the area.

Room Tip: Lake view and if you can reserve a Fairmont Gold Lake view room

Green Features: As friendly as all the other large Canadian hotels.

Very busy tourist hotel. Stopped for lunch. The food and service were great but you had the added animal photo op of squirrel and mouse not moose in restaurant.
Been in many country hotels but never seen so many little visitors.
Did slightly detract from good food and service, but saw black bear a d a proper moose on our travels after that which gave better photo ops.

Camping through Alberta and BC and decided to splurge here for our 30th wedding anniversary. Made reservations early, was surprised at the full payment up front, no refund policy. I joined the "President's Club" rewards program...for the heck of it. From the moment we arrived until we drove away, the service was amazing! Pulled up with a travel trailer, crossing my fingers I could park it somewhere...close? Parking people SO nice...allowed me to park entire rig in valet for our stay. Wow! Went to check in...apparently we were chosen President's Club member of the day which included a sweet, suite upgrade. OMG! Giant living room with full bath, upstairs bedroom with giant bathroom, 2 balconies on the 8th floor (view of mountains and Lake Louise). We also had access to the 7th floor lounge with private concierge and full breakfast every morning. Did I also mention we got free parking? Housekeeping was awesome, everyone was friendly, many greeted us by name. Had a special dinner at the Fairview dining room, got a great window table with view of the lake, the food was delicious and everyone from the waiter to the maître d' wished us a Happy Anniversaire! Yes, staying there was a splurge but it was definitely worth it!!!!!

Room Tip: Pay the money for lakeview!

Good: View, the Grounds, Afternoon Tea.
Bad:The service and the public interior. Check-in slow. The room wasn't ready at check in time. The pool & facilities were not available. Concierge staff was rude. The room was frightfully hot. $$$$$$

We were only able to spend one night in a Lakeview room. The view of the turquoise lake, snow covered mountains and the grounds from our room was spectacular. The room was very nice, the bedding delightful for a good nights sleep. Dinner in the Fairview Dining Room was pricey, but incredible with a great view. All employees were very attentive and friendly.

Room Tip: Choose a room with the view. Sign up for the Fairmonts Presidents club to get free wifi at all Fair...

We had the most wonderful stay at this hotel and the scenery was outstanding! The weather was great and we took a canoe ride right next to the hotel. The restaurants were very good and our room was very clean. Would highly recommend this hotel.
