Lake facing rooms small. Staff very friendly and helpful. Shuttle to the ski fields great. Restaurants and common areas lack adequate heating - they even handed us blankets! Very surprised, given cost of hotel rate.

This "Chateau" is located right on the edge of Lake Louise, Canada. Beautiful setting and beautiful facilities. Elegance, refined staff, very confortable rooms. Gardens are immaculate and the location is just perfect.

Excellent stay at the conference. The hotel did very well at meeting celiac dietary needs. The staff were available but not intrusive in any way. We stayed an extra night and really enjoyed just hanging out together. Everything was wonderful all around.

I can't say I've ever had the same quality of service as I had at the Fairmount Chateau. The staff were exceptionally accommodating, helped us get items from in town during a big snow storm, provided a unique parking spot for my car because it wouldn't fit underground and on top of that brushed and started my car each morning. Everything from the restaurants, to room service the staff were exceptionally friendly, helpful and went over and above blowing my expectations out of the water. Highly recommend. Read less
