Very small room overlooking parking lot with mountains in the background. The bathroom was extremely small and only one chair (at the desk) in the room. The pool/hot tub were so crowded with children we did not attempt to get in. The staff were very nice and the place is beautiful but we considered this a huge splurge for our... More

This hotel is located on the edge of Lake Louise - one of the most beautiful hotel locations in the world. The hotel is like its location, open, friendly and slightly awe inspiring.

Lake Louise is spectacular, and staying at the Fairmont just turned my trip into an enchanting experience. My bags were taken directly from the Rocky Mountaineer to my room.

Everything is tops- knowledgeable and lovely from check-in to hiking, delicious food, fantastic view and gorgeous hiking- the Fairmont Lake Louise welcomes the energetic mountain climber or the spa and shop folk with equal ease and enthusiasm. Worth every penny-do not miss the hiking or canoeing or the fondue!
