Editorial review:

Located in the middle of Banff National Park, the hotel The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, which is great all year round, has amazing views of the Rockies and Lake Louise that almost seem fake. Some felt that the rooms were small and drab, but the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The lobby is often crowded with tourists.

                      The view was spectaular and the service was out of this world.Everybody happy and nothing was ever a problem.

                      The location is extraordinary, but honestly that's about it.

                      Our reservation request made through Booked.net was not relayed to the hotel correctly, or so they insisted upon check in. Consequently instead of the two twin beds we had requested via Booked.net, we were put in a King/rollaway arrangement which was hard to overlook. Additionally, we were put on the 6th floor which is the catering floor. The rooms have not been updated like other floors. Our room appeared to have been un- used for some time as there was dust on the welcome literature and cobwebs on the ceiling and bathroom. Our deluxe waterfront view was actually the far corner with the least desirable viewing angle. A fruit plate was delivered with rotten strawberries. I was beginning to feel that this was some kind of online booking conspiracy until realising that the Valet and concierge were rarely there for anyone, even their full-rate guests. It seems even full rate guests are getting just the same and that it is just a bad hotel plain and simple. Money far better spent at another property like Morraine Lake Lodges, with similar view, real service, food, and wood burning fireplaces.

                      The hike we took was the only positive thing about our trip, the staff in the "fondu" rest were rude and unprofessional, especially the manager, if you could call him that. I am a member of Prestwick Golf course in the Scotland and we had planned a large trip to the Fairmont hotels in Banff and Lake Louise but have now chosen other hotels on my recomendation. I feel the staff really do not care about the guests as the hotel is popular with International travellers they dont have to be polite as another bus is rolling in when a bus full of unhappy guests is rolling out.

                      The view of the lake was stunning

                      The bath was in need of repair also the paint on the window ledge of the bathroom was flaky - work needed to be done there . when we arrived to check in the hotel had the wrong booking details.. Overall first impressions were not as good as anticipated. Pool area was not of the standard expected. The room rate was very high even before the tax was added on at checkout... Really you are paying an awful lot of money for the view...

                      Fabulous location, beautiful scenery, nice hotel.

                      Very expensive.

                      Meal at the fairview

                      On booking, my assumption was that a delux room with lake view meant the old building. I was disappointed that it also meant the new building. The room was fine, but it would have been nice to have the choice. Also on booking I noted there was a child that would be with us, yet no cot was offerred or provided

                      The view. We splurged and got the room with two windows overlooking the lake. It was a beautiful room. Great king sized bed.

                      Fitness center needs updating, and possibly pool area, as well. Considering the luxury class of this hotel, it was not very impressive. Also, of course, it was very touristy and crowded, so two nights there was all we really wanted, then we moved to a quieter and more modest place.

                      Room appearance and ammenities were excellent.

                      Wake up early for the sun rise on the lake : look at the beautiful view from your confortable and quiet bedroom and then enjoy the good breakfast with Canadian products : cranberries, blueberries, mapple syrup...I Really enjoyed.

                      The beauty of the surroundings, the luxurious atmosphere of the hotel, the sense of peace with nature.

                      I did not like the bill being pushed under the door on the morning of departure. It felt as if you wanted to get rid of us or were afraid we would leave without paying the bill.

                      The hotel has a fantastic view (but only the lake view rooms). This hotel worthed just for the views.

                      It's a very expensive hotel for what we got. The rooms are small. No free internet and no complimentary waters. Today, it's unacceptable. I stayed for 15 days on different cheaper hotels in bc and Alberta and Faimont Lake Louise was the only hotel where I didn't have these facilities. It's also an old fashioned hotel. It's possible to have luxury but with modern facilities.

                      Loved the activities - Voyageur Canoe on Lake Louise and of course scenery.

                      Bathroom was very small

                      I and my family could not sleep at night due to mattress being so uncomfortable. Nowadays even every cheap hotel offers free internet, however at this hotel they said you have to pay or you need to be a member!
