Everything at the Post was spectacular. We felt like royalty from the momment we walked into the property until we left. The hotel was clean, upscale and comfortable. Our room (137) had a patio that sat the 2 of us and was right on a creek. It was so peaceful and romantic. Secluded and quiet, it was perfect for us. Bathroom had a jet tub, shower and all amenities. Turn down service each evening allowing you to feel truly special.
The restaraunt on the property is rated as a top culinary treat and it was. The prices were a bit high, but the food was extraordinary adn the views spectacular. The hotel offers a lot of sitting areas for your enjoyment as well. We sat on the outdoor lawn for sunset and basked in the warmth while the staff came out to serve drinks. There is a library in the building as well with a fireplace for peaceful reading and trading of books. You can just take one off the shelf.
We each had massages in the spa that were perfect.
We did a lot of hiking and this location was perfect to launch from. From the hotel we walked to the Fairmont at Lake Louise (6 KM each way). Beautiful there, but definitely not us! We were so pleased that we chose the Post adn read the comments on tripadvisor. The Fairmont has the beautiful and famouse view of Lake Louise, which was part of what we saw as the problem. There were busses coming and going and tons of people walking around the property. Large groups of Asian travellers who were difficult to menuever around for photographs. We were told that the average stay at the Fairmont and Lake Luoise was 20 minutes -- time for a photo and a trip to the souvenier store. Yuck! The best was coming back to our place and having the ahhhh.
The 2 owners of the hotel were visible often and talked to guests to assure all was good. The staff was empowered and did whatever they had to to make the guests happy. We wanted to see the cabins so we knew what to ask for on our next trip. They openned the doors to us and showed us 3 different cabins with different configurations. Also not a bad option for your stay!
I really can't rave enough about this place and can't wati to return.
BTW, two of the hikes we loved were Johnston Canyon and Consolation. Beautiful. Great restaurants: Bakers Creek and the Post.
