We stayed here in Feb of this year. Although the room we had was a little small the over all hotel was really nice. Lots of good restraunts, nice cafe's for coffee. But the best part was the amazing views, waterfall and ice skating.

definitely has one of the most stunning settings in the world - the blue/green lake in the background and the glacier in the distance with snow capped mountains either side - the hotel is a bit of maze - shops limited - food reasonable choice but a bit expensive

Step into this beautiful hotel and you almost forget that you are in the middle of a very wild national park. The hotel itself is worth seeing, but we stopped in for coffee and pastries which were delicious. We also did a little shopping. What a nice surprise while visiting a gorgeous lake too. I would love to stay here... More

The coffee we had was the best part of visiting Lake Louise. The lake was disappointing, but the coffee and tart was great

Nice view of the lake and the surrounding montain peaks from a landing behind the Fairmont Chateau. Free parking in a fairly small (~125 parking spaces) lot very close to the hotel. Lots and lots of people coming in just for their pictures so it is a bit like the wild west. Good place to start your hikes from though.

Hotel is as can be expected in prime real estate. Nice lobby, good restaurants and eateries but pricy mandatory extras like parking $40.00 a day with new no optional free way. Going with kids is a bit of a bonus whereby they can est tor free in the restaurants.

We had driven over from Banff to see the lake and the hotel and it did not disappoint. Simply too beautiful for words.

Had a fantastic time here. The view is the best in the world! Lake Louise is so beautiful. Upgrade to the gold member. It's well worth it. There's a special check in desk and lounge. The breakfast in it is unbelievable. Even an omelette station in there! Plus snacks and drinks all day and heavy appetizers for dinner. Our room... More

When we arrived there was a harpist in period costume playing in the foyer. The rooms are huge and lovely. The German Tavern in the grounds of the hotel is worth a visit. It serves good food. It was expensive so we only stayed for one night.
