My hubby and kids (ages13 and 15) stayed here for three nights over Christmas. Coming from Australia we were looking for the kind of white Christmas that you see in the movies. Let me say, this place did not disappoint! We stayed in a lake view room with two queen beds. The room

We celebrated my fiance's birthday here and the staff were wonderful and upgraded our room when we checked in. They arranged a restaurant booking, advised us of rental options and were generally just all round lovely people.

This was a hotel I’ve wanted to visit for so long and, having the chance at the end of a ski trip to Jasper, I took it. The location is iconic, of course. That met every expectation. Waking up to that view of the frozen lake was everything I wanted it to be. However....... our

Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is an absolutely remarkable destination and a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Except...once you have that “once-in-lifetime” experience you may find yourself unwilling to restrict yourself to a single visit. I say this because I will be returning to

You would be best phoning the hotel yourself, we went in the spring and it was through Rockey Mountaineer. It is a beautiful place and we are so glad we saw it. It is very expensive but it is once in a life time experience, all staff were pleasant and very helpful, the hotel seemed to be full and that was around the first of June 2018.

"facing the Lake is worth the extra $"
"Lake view room are really nice"
"A lake view is more expensive, but well worth it!"
"Get a room on the back of the hotel that faces Lake Louise. Front rooms like ours faced the parking lot."
"The Gold Club floor provides exclusive breakfast on level 7 and a place to relax during the day avoiding the day trippers in the lobby."
