The Chateau is a nice hotel with great history with beautiful scenery. The rooms are usually too warm and you'll have to leave the window open at night. The wifi is $15 unless you're a Fairmont Premium member. If you don't want to pay for parking the trailhead parking lot is a 2 minute walk away but if you're that strapped the Chateau probably isn't the best venue for you. Our latest visit was for a wedding and this is a great venue for that type of event. You really get a sense of the history of the location. Take some time to read the captions on the old photos throughout the hotel to appreciate its history. It doesn't hurt that the hotel has one of the best backdrops of any hotel I've ever stayed at.
