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.

Views so perfect they look fake

Brunswick, Maryland

Another wonderful Fairmont hotel and completely different views. To wake up and look outside and see the majestic beauty is indescribable. Now you do have to deal with all of the masses of people sitting in one spot and NEVER truly taking in the full beauty of the lake or the hikes because they are too busy taking selfies of themselves and are so narcissist to even try to move, but that does not diminish the beauty. This was a bucket list item for me so I could spend hours looking at this and not getting bored. I would recommend taking the canoe ride, it is less than a mile to paddle and you will be mesmerized looking back over the mountains, glaciers and then back again. The hike to the tea room is beautiful and would certainly recommend. It is fairly easy but you also need to be a little careful as a person could get hurt. The resort has everything you have come to expect from the Fairmont and this again did not disappoint.

Not as good as the Empress still a great place to stay

Midway, Utah

We were in the gold level again with breakfast and appetizers and it was nice but not outstanding. The location on the lake is fabulous with lovely walks. But one night is enough as there is only so much to do.
