Amazing hotel, amazing views, beautiful lake. Staff were wonderful. Food was incredible. Rooms with a view of the lake ARE worth the extra money. Make sure you have one nights dinner in the Fairview. expensive but oh so good.

First off let me explain that this was our second Fairmont visit in a 24 hour period. We had been at the Banff facility the night prior. So we expected the attitude and again the question, "Are We A Guest". There was tons of open tables on the patio and in bar, but the hostess refused to accommodate a group...

This is the place they show you on all the ads for Canada and usually the lake is blue. Apparently not like any other blue but because spring had not begun it was all snowed in. Like most Fairmonts the service and accommodation is impeccable. I think this Fairmont gives just that little more. Food is heavenly from cafe to...

Great hotel in unique location. Best is to stay there for max two nights. Experience the unique location and move on. Be ready for big crowds. We did the canoe tour with guide - fantastic. Also hiked up to lake Agnes - a must. Staying outside of Lake Louise and visit (come early to avoid the crowds) is an option...

Very small room overlooking parking lot with mountains in the background. The bathroom was extremely small and only one chair (at the desk) in the room.

This hotel is located on the edge of Lake Louise - one of the most beautiful hotel locations in the world. The hotel is like its location, open, friendly and slightly awe inspiring.
