This is a must stop if your passing through Lake Louise! The views are breathtaking. We were told that the tea house hike in the summer is amazing. Will have to come back in the summer months!

It is near to the beautiful lake so you won't regret being there for sure. Quite expensive so if you have money go for it!

We called in here as part of our tour. So we walked through the lobbies, checked out the restaurants (got a photo of the lake out of the dining room window) and the gift shops. Wished we were staying a night - but our itinerary didn't allow. It all looked very nice and if we ever get back - a... More

This is one of those wonderful properties originally built by the Canadian Pacific Railway that has achieved iconic status. It is a large property but it is done in such a way that you never feel part of a crowd. The rooms are comfortable, and of course the lake view is to be preferred. Lake Louise isni't much of a...

I haven't even left yet but felt the need to write a review. First, the place is absolutely beautiful. We have a room on club level facing the lake, and the view is spectacular. But, what has impressed me is the staff at the Fairmont. Absolutely first class: polite, accommodating, helpful, genuinely friendly, and so delightful. They have made the... More

The staff are so arrogant! They just don't care how you feel because their rooms are so easily book out . They treated me so impolite and rude! I really hate their staff ! I strongly recommend you not to stay at this hotel if you don't want anybody to ruin your holiday!

Very scenic, a must see if in the area. Hiking, kayaking, canoeing, photography, food and lodging all in the area. Very busy place year around but well worth the visit not too much like it. The Chateau is very pretty and lots to do.

What a gorgeous view and more food than you could possibly eat. Scones were particularly nice. Thoroughly enjoyable respite.
