Beautiful rooms, very comfy beds and pillows, amazing toiletries, wonderful pool and hot tub. Scenery is beyond description - it is magnificent!! Staff we very professional and helpful.

The Fairmont Lake Louise overlooks one of the most beautiful places on the planet. If you visit the Chateau Lake Louise be sure to stay in a lake view room and a stunning vista will greet you every morning. In the summer months hike up to the Tea House at Stanley Glacier. In winter be sure to bring your skates for a glide across the lake.
