Wonderful view as you eat, looking out of the window across the lake and towards the mountains. Coupled with fantastic food and friendly service. Can’t be faulted.

However let down by the quality of the food. The staff are very good and we did have drinks (over-priced but the location and views make it almost understandable). Unfortunately the food lets the place down.More

Description
One of the most iconic lobby lounges in the Canadian Rockies, the Lakeview Lounge offers a charming and elegant setting to sip on a sophisticated cocktail or an illustrious wine. Sit back, relax and admire the spectacular, world-class views of Lake Louise and Victoria Glacier. The combination of architectural and natural beauty makes for an unforgettable lobby lounge experience in the heart of Banff National Park. Be sure to sample our signature cocktail; the Lakeview Cosmopolitan, that has been a local’s favourite for years. In addition to an extensive cocktail and wine selection, seasonally inspired lunch and dinner menus are available. During the summer months, soak up the fresh mountain air and surrounding beauty from one of the most scenic patios in the Canadian Rockies.
