“Beautifully set on the lake”

Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise
Ranked #7 of 32 things to do in Lake Louise
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed November 13, 2012

It is a Fairmont Hotel on the eastern shore of Lake Louise. The original Chateau was gradually built up at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century by the Canadian Pacific Railway, so it is a relatively new building. Its interior has nothing really special to grab one's attention. Same applies to its exterior architecture
It's only the amazing views from the hotel (and the restaurant) to the lake and the setting of the hotel on the lake that make the entire combination beautiful.

Went to Lake Louise for the day.
The Fairmont Chateau was a lovely hotel there was plenty of facilities they had a lovely cafe/restaurant with lots of lovely food and drink. The people were very friendly.
Round the Lake you can go hiking or walking also there was canoes that you can hire and go out onto the lake.
The Lake itself is very beautiful and peaceful. The gardens where beautiful and full of flowers It just looked like the postcards.
You can also take the shuttle bus to the Gondola ride up the mountain which we did and it included lunch that was very reeasonable priced.
I would suggest to get there early before the tourist buses arrive.
One of the highlights of our trip in canada

We took Bow Falls Parkway from Banff to explore Lake Louise. Stopped at train station in time to wave to a passing train hauling empty cars up into mountains for mining cargo, the Lake is most peaceful and starting to freeze at bottom of glacier and moving slowly toward the Chateau, beautiful huge window in Chateau to sit,/drink coffe/read and sneak a peak at the majestic scenery . . . very serene and relaxing!

it really did lack character. it is a new build with interiors trying to look like the venetian in las vegas! There isn't much in the way of shops or eating.
