We had a trip to place top 5 easily of all of our travels. We are not normally winter destination travelers, honestly me & my kids have only seen snow twice. But we wanted a unique experience for our son's senior high school spring break trip. We picked the perfect place for this. The hotel was spectacular. Lots of dining...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Spent two glorious nights at this hotel and it lived up to what we expected. Located right on the beautiful lake looking at the Victoria Glacier, this hotel is like a castle out in the middle of nowhere. A large hotel but you don't feel you could get lost in it and if you did, so what as there's so...

It is one thing to visualise how this big, bold & beautiful hotel looks from a photo but to see it in person is another sight to me behold. WOW. The hotel is Grande in Size, imposing in fact and the views are exceptional as one would expect. However, the icing on this cake is by far the 'friendly service...

My husband and I recently spent 6 nights at the chateau fairmont lake Louise and had the best time! Unfortunately I was in the beginning stages of bronchitis the day we flew in. During the drive from the airport to the hotel I emailed the concierge and requested a vaporizer for the room. I didn't even think they'd read the...

My wife and I are from Calgary and have visited Lake Louise many times for its unmatched natural beauty. We thought it would be a nice treat to actually stay at the chateau but had a bit of bad luck. After arriving in the early evening and exploring the grounds, we sat down to a shared meal of two appetizers...

The location is awe inspiring however we were disappointed with the hotel given its status & the write ups we had seen. It is very tired looking in all areas except the spa. The restaurant/bar area which has beautiful lake views was dirty & overpriced. The deli area looks like a third rate cafe also outdated & drab. There is...

We recently spent two nights here and enjoyed every moment! The location is truly amazing with mountains on all sides and Lake Louise (frozen when we visited) in front. The service was excellent, the staff were friendly, approachable and very willing to help. Our room overlooked the front of the hotel, so away from the Lake but the view was...

We had a deluxe Mt Temple room - the room was miles from reception, but we enjoyed the walk. The room was on the ground floor - it was huge, as was the bathroom - beautifully decorated, lovely linen, comfortable bed - very luxurious. We ate in the lounge and the food was super. We had breakfast in the Poppy's...
