  • We only stayed here for one night but the experience was magical. We had upgraded to a lake view, and boy was this worth it ! A day that we will never forget !

  • Our family gave us a two-night stay at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. We had a beautiful room, facing the lake and enjoyed two amazing sunrises as well as peaceful evenings on the patio.

  • Our main reason of joining the 5days Rockies Bus Tour.. The hotel has old world charm. Be warned there are stuffed Stag heads in the lobby area. We had one of the non lake view rooms (#260).. (avg costs for non lake view depending on when you reserve per night is $700-1200 Canadian) Take the elevator to the basement and walk out the back and viola, there is the lake. We arrived late in the evening, so after you drop off your luggage, walk around the grounds, we sat on a bench by the lake and enjoyed the night sky, even with the hotel lights behind us, we can see the stars quite clearly. Get up before sun rise and go to the lake and watch the lake come to life. Hotel is attached to the public park so there will be other users around. Look for the ‘Living Room’ off the lobby main staircase, there are lots of games tables set up for board games, reading, and just relaxation area. Coffee, tea and water station also there. Nice concierge person man the desk and just check to make sure you are a guest. Our room (#260) is not big but include tea station and kettle inside the cabinet under the TV. Mini fridge also, safe is in the closet. Bathroom has no counter space so if you need more, use the desk. Swimming pool is open until 11pm for adults and gym is 24 hours.
  • Luxurious hotel. Rooms are nice but very small. We did have AC. Beautiful view of the lake from our room.... spectacular. Large hotel property on the lake with hiking, canoeing and lots of other recreational events. It is 5 minutes away from the town so you would be eating at the hotel restaurants unless you had transportation. Hotel restaurants are only available for hotel guests. Service is very good.
