The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

Spectacular chateau hotel overlooking Lake Louise

This spectacular hotel is one of the Fairmont’s most iconic and sits at the shore of the emerald-coloured Lake Louise. With stunning chateau-styled architecture and breath-taking surroundings, this luxurious hotel is one of Canada’s most impressive and is the ideal place for a beautiful, natural break. Dating from 1911, the hotel maintains an elegant period interior alongside modern amenities such as a heated indoor pool, a luxurious spa and no less than seven eating and drinking options. Set in the UNESCO World Heritage Banff National Park, this hotel provides a secluded location that is still just a few miles from the nearby Lake Louise Ski Resort.

Price adjustment

Terrible customer service. Paid full price in advance and price dropped after the booking. Now, they are not willing to adjust price since the money are in their pocket. I was expecting better customer service since they are calling them selves premium hotels.

Christmas party

Calgary, Canada

This resort location and views outside are absolutely epic!!! My wife and I came for a weekend stay with Christmas party included. When we arrived the hotel was so kind they handed my wife and I a double twin bed room with a view of the mechanical room. We asked if we could have a room with one bed only. The view really didn't matter too much... Not like it wasn't special ...lol the room was terribly small and we were left to sleep separate or re organize the room so we could actually have a decent time away with eachother. All in all save your money and to stay at the Rimrock in Banff highly recommend
