You have to go to the Chateau if you’re in the area, even if you just go for a cup of tea in the lounge! If you are staying here, they do a sunrise call, just as the sun’s about to come over the glacier. It’s stunning!

Overview: hotel description: Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise description

It doesn't get much better than the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise with arguably the best setting and view of any hotel located in the Banff National Park.

Lake Views

Each morning you can awake to views of the snowy lake, the dramatic Rocky Mountains and the stunning Victoria Glacier. The luxury hotel is great for everyone but particularly couples looking for that extra special getaway and we highly recommend upgrading to a lake view room.


The hotel is located directly on the shores of Lake Louise. The convenient free shuttle service runs throughout the day providing access to the slopes and the Village.


The hotel has a great range of restaurants and bars to enjoy, but if you want to dine out a few nights and try some nice local restaurants and bars it couldn't be easier to get around. Back at the hotel there's plenty of things to keep you entertained.

Winter Activities

Enjoy an evening campfire where you can toast marshmallows, take an afternoon off the slopes and try your hand at Bavarian curling, or relax in the spa. Our favourite activity is taking to the frozen lake on a set of ice skates and making the most incredible memories.

Transfer time: approx. 2.5 hours by coach from Calgary International Airport.

Lying at 1646 metres altitude in the Alberta region of the Canadian Rockies, Lake Louise has been photographed to within an inch of its existence, and still manages to delight the eyes. Literally turquoise in summer and overlooked by the glistening Victoria glacier (named after our great former monarch, no less), even the shakiest of photographers will come away with prize shots after a trip here. In the winter, the lake freezes over for the season, and the ice-skating opportunities abound under the watch of the...

The Minute Maid Adventure Park and Sunny beginner’s area provide the perfect introduction to the snow, with 3 magic carpets to keep things simple.

Life moves at a slower pace at Lake Louise, where most of the activity takes place in the resort hotels. The undisputed star of the show is the Fairmont Chateau, where you could arguably spend a week holed up in swish bars and eateries looking out over the lake from on high. For guests and passers-through alike, afternoon tea in the hotel’s Lakeview lounge makes for the perfect end to the day, while the Glacier Saloon (a ridiculously elegant pub and sports bar) will set you up with local ales and craft beers.

You have to go to the Chateau if you’re in the area, even if you just go for a cup of tea in the lounge! If you are staying here, they do a sunrise call, just as the sun’s about to come over the glacier. It’s stunning! All the Fairmont properties have their own Labrador and you can book and take them out for a walk around the lake which is lovely – especially if you have children.
