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.

Low standard of quality for beautifully situated pricey hotel

I have never had a more beautiful view from a hotel window. The surrounding area and friendly staff were 5 star however the hotel left much to be desired considering the price point. The value is in the view because the room was cheap. The room was dilapidated with flaking paint, peeling wall paper, skewed power outlets and a missing tile from the bathroom floor. The hotel is old and showing its age without the benefit of much upkeep. The quality of the room service food also left much to be desired. We ordered the charcuterie board, sesame crusted tuna and butter chicken. What we received was bland and disappointing. I had expected the dining experience at the hotel to be of superior quality. After our unfortunate room service experience we decided to make dinner arrangements in Banff for the following evening. I would suggest staying elsewhere and making a trip to Lake Louise for the day. You will save yourself some money and still be able to enjoy everything that the hotel truly has to offer.

The Most Amazing Trip and Service

Charleston, South Carolina

My family and I are in the middle of our stay at the Chateau and it has been everything we have dreamed of. The views are amazing and if you are going to stay at Lake Louise then pay the extra and stay at the Fairmont. The service is impeccable and Tyler at Poppy’s is by far one of the best waiters I have ever encountered. He was polite, attentive and went above and beyond every time we dined there. Definitely the best trip we have taken and worth every penny!!!
