“Favorite place in Lake Louise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

The Post is simply one of the finest resort hotels one could expect to find. Rooms are tasteful, clean and well appointed. Staff is always helpful and very responsive to any need. The restaurant is exceptionally good with well designed meals, GREAT wine options and attentive owners. My wife and I have stayed here many times over a 20+ year period and simply will not stay anywhere else in Lake Louise.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a "view" room, but even if you cannot get one, the rooms that overlook...

We took the 'gourmet' package at The Post to celebrate a special occasion - two nights, two breakfasts and a 6 course meal with wine pairings. I would highly recommend this. Our room had been upgraded which was a surprise. It was a large one bedroom with balcony and view of the rushing river. Breakfasts were fair. But the dinner was outstanding. Can't say enough about the quality, service and dining experience. This was topped off with a tour of their world class wine cellar. Lake Louise is a special place.

Room Tip: River side view of the river.

The Post is a remarkable hotel! We came here after eating at the restaurant 5 years ago (staying on Lake Louise then). Lived the restaurant so much and the fireplace in the tavern, we knew we had to stay here on our return. As a hiking trip, close to grand hikes and views, but with luxury after the hike. Pricey, but worth every penny. We stayed in 102, a cabin on the river. Turn down service, the river lulling you to sleep, the fire set up for easy start, chairs for lounging by the river, hot tea after hiking and a comfortable bed! The bathroom was a bit small, but the other amenities make up for that. We'll be back. Cannot imagine staying in a more perfect setting at Lake Louise (and avoiding the crowds at the Chateau).

Wifi:  Free, in room and you just select in - no log on, no code and works at a useable speed.

We had a ground floor room overlooking the gardens towards the river.   Its a fair sized room, with quite a lot of furniture in it, including a desk looking out to the gardens and a comfy sofa and chair.  The wardrobe has a safe.  There are no tea/coffee facilities, but you can get coffee "to go" from the restaurant and at times from reception.  The bed was comfortable.

Bathroom
 This is spacious, with plenty of towels.  Bathrobe (just one, oddly, but very luxurious) and slippers.  The sink is inset in a spacious surface, with shelves underneath containing additional towels and the hairdryer.

The bath has a jacuzzi option and the shower is powerful.  The only drawbacks are that 1. it is fixed the wall and there is no handheld shower should you just wish to wash your hair and 2. shower curtain - personal pet hate of mine, as they can't be cleaned between visits  
 
I used the spa, which was very nice - little touches like disposable razors and shaving foam in the showers.  There is a nice sitting room to enjoy before / after your treatment and I thought that the price was reasonable.  

There is a nice bar / snug just past reception where you can enjoy your afternoon coffee looking out to the river.

We stayed here on our wedding day and the hotel and all the staff made sure it was absolutely perfect.
We booked the Gourmet package which was for 2 nights with breakfast and a six course meal with wine pairings - well worth the money as the meal alone would have been $105cad before tax each - the food was fantastic quality and the service was impeccable.
We paid $50 extra per night to be on the preferred side with garden, mountain and river views, again definitely worth it.
From the moment we checked in all of the staff did everything possible to make our stay special - they sorted out and extra room so I could get ready without seeing the bride - we were also given a complimentary bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries as a surprise when we got back to our room.
We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Lake Louise, this place is the best!

Room Tip: Rooms on the preferred side have better views and less noise - they cost around $50 cad extra per ni...

This was a fine hotel. The room, on the preferred side, had a great view of a red roof. The pub is very charming even if the food is nothing to write home about. It is away from the action of Lake Louise which is either a positive or negative depending on what you're looking for. Very costly for what is unquestionably a mediocre place.

Stayed 3 days, the great thing about this place is location, you're away from the crowds, which Banff is now often a crowded place these days, Very nice part of the Rockies, much to like about this place, as with most places in its peers the staff are delightful. But I consider this a top dollar establishment for a good, not great establishment. Would stay again although one does not get full value.

Room Tip: Ascertain room type, floor, view etc. at time of booking.
