I was lucky enough to spend 2 glorious nights at Lake Louise and had a great time. We stayed in the rooms that were in a new wing (on the right as you pull up) that by the sounds of it were lovely and large. They didnt offer a complete lake view like in the main hotel but we were lakeside when the sun rose.

The property is wonderful. if you are active people spend 2-3 nights and do the walking track up to the lodge in the mountain as i think that would provide a spectacular view.

Room Tip: Lake view is the way to go but be careful with the different wings (eg painter, garden etc) as each...

We booked Chateau Lake Louise more or less by accident. The cost was a little above what we normally pay on our travels, but this time, we had no regrets. The view from our room over the lake and to the mountains was breathtaking. The hotel met our every need and then some.

Room Tip: We were upgraded simply by joining the free "President's Club." If you don't mind...

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a very restful experience.
The Chateau is wonderful and we received a free upgrade to Gold which gave us a room with great views of the lake and glacier.
Views of the mountains and forest were priceless and the trek into the wilderness safe but exhilarating. No Bears on our trip but wonderful views and many great photographs.
Chateau restaurants a little expensive but in keeping with the whole experience.
Well worth a stay if looking for a few days rest in the middle of a long trip

A wonderful property with in a majestic setting. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are good as long as you don't end up with an older small room. Our original room was across from the staging area for housekeeping so we requested to be moved and ended up in the newer wing and we loved it. Make sure to check out the wonder hikes in the area!
Breakfast in our room was spectacular even if it isn't cheap it's worth it!

Room Tip: A quiet room in the newer wing suited us just fine and we still had a great view.

We sated hear overnight for the experience.
Were we disappointed?
In many ways no, a grand hotel in an exceptional situation.
The room was OK except the bathrobes were on the small size and there was no hotel directory. Small point I know but when a hotel or chain sets itself up to be special it is the small point that make it just less than special.
The public areas were magnificent but what really makes the hotel is the surroundings especially when all the day visitors have gone. Early evening and early morning the place is magical.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at our Diamond in the Wilderness, though I have shared your comments concerning the bathrobes and guest directories with our Executive Housekeeper. She will ensure a directory is replaced in all guest rooms if they are not already there, and will make sure we have different robe sizes on hand. We hope to see you again!

We stayed here for a night on a road trip of Canada. Beautiful room with fantastic view, we were upgraded for free.

Food and drink are rather expensive but tasty.

Good option for a special break, but otherwise a bit expensive.

Room Tip: We booked a double room but asked for an extra bed as we were two friends rather than a couple, and...

What a beautiful setting to start our Canadian Vacation. The room was great, but I cold not get a lake view room. The hotel is very popular, so get our reservations earlier. There were plenty of restaurants to pick from. Good service, food and vine in each.
