The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

Spectacular chateau hotel overlooking Lake Louise

This spectacular hotel is one of the Fairmont’s most iconic and sits at the shore of the emerald-coloured Lake Louise. With stunning chateau-styled architecture and breath-taking surroundings, this luxurious hotel is one of Canada’s most impressive and is the ideal place for a beautiful, natural break. Dating from 1911, the hotel maintains an elegant period interior alongside modern amenities such as a heated indoor pool, a luxurious spa and no less than seven eating and drinking options. Set in the UNESCO World Heritage Banff National Park, this hotel provides a secluded location that is still just a few miles from the nearby Lake Louise Ski Resort.

Fantastic customer service

Calgary, Canada

I can't say enough about the Chateau Lake Louise's customer service. Yes, the setting is amazing, the hotel and its common areas and rooms are beautiful. And yes, it's pricey and it's always a treat for us to stay. Their approach to customer service is what sets it apart. Right from the bellman who brought our bags to the room. On this occasion, I fell ill on the last night of our ski holiday - Jan 5. When we called the front desk to see if we could get info on medical facilities, they were so compassionate and so helpful. I wish I could remember everyone's name to single them out but thank you to the phone operator, security and guest services upon check out. While we hope to stay healthy on all future visits, this experience has put the Chateau on our favourites list to return. Thank you!

Stupendous

Manchester, United Kingdom

We travel to Canada from the UK every two years and this place continues to be a highlight. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a better lake room suite and the views were unbelievable. Staff were all well-trained, friendly and very helpful with tips. The amenities were great and we had no complaints at all. Enjoy !
