Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visit every year during ski season, I’ve noticed the service has improved and that’s saying a lot because I didn’t think it needed improving. :) I had a ski injury checking in and I was so humbled by the kindness and attention I received. Right away I was given crutches and everyone from the bell desk, reception to the lounge folks, everyone was absolutely wonderful and genuinely thoughtful and kind. I missed one day of skiing but if I was going to be layed-up anywhere, this was the place to be. Thank you all for the impeccable service, attention to detail, professionalism and kindness. My husband and I are beyond impressed and now coming back for some summer hiking! See you in Sept! :)

Hotel's Favourite
My wife and I stay here every winter and summer, and even though we have spent well over 100 nights here, we still have reason to come back again. On this summer visit, we treated my mother and cousin to a nice 3-week vacation, split between the Chateau Lake Louise and the Banff Springs Hotel. Because there were four of us travelling, we booked a Two Bedroom Lakeview Suite. We were pleased to be assigned to 859 on the top floor. Arriving at the hotel, the valet staff promptly greeted us, unloaded our bags, and handed us the keys to our suite. We left the car with the valet and headed to the suite. It wasn't busy at the front desk, but it was nice to be able to skip and head directly to the suite. We were greeted in the suite by a nice bottle of wine and a welcome snack. Accor Diamond member benefits, such as the drink vouchers, were also provided on arrival. The suite was beautifully renovated, and provided good space for the four of us. With two bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths, large closets, a lovely living room and dining area, the suite had great space. And of course, great views from the six windows across the front of the turret! The only thing it could have used, was some additional dresser space for clothing in the second bedroom. The master bedroom had plenty of drawer space. We ate dinners in the Fairview, Alpine Social, Walliser Stube (always my favourite) and several times at the Lakeview Lounge. We had breakfast in Lago most mornings, but also ordered in-room dining a few times. It's nice to have breakfast included via both options. All meals were excellent. I don't know if we just got lucky, but we seemed to get the best window table for every meal (except Alpine Social, which doesn't really have any views), so that was appreciated. On our first day while having dinner in the Lakeview Lounge, the hotel's Manager of Dining Services came to our table, and said she noticed us having dinner, and offered any assistance with any meals for the remainder of our stay. We already had reservations for remaining nights, but it was very nice of her to reach out. If I had one complaint, it was about the time to get breakfast. There was nearly always a line to get a table, and with no way to reserve. Guests in suites are supposed to have priority dining access, but that clearly doesn't apply to breakfast! It also would be nice if you could have in-room dining earlier than 7:15, which is too late when planning some early morning hikes or trying to get to a Lake O'Hara bus reservation. I don't remember it like this on any of our prior stays, so this is an area that really needs to be addressed. I'm hoping once the delayed renovation of Louiza is completed and they finally open, perhaps they will offer breakfast in two restaurants? They certainly need more breakfast capacity to eliminate the waits. While not the responsibility of the hotel, over the course of the nearly two weeks we stayed here, it certainly helped that the weather was fabulous, with only one day with cloudy skies. We used the Moraine Lake shuttle bus a couple of times during the stay. We hiked about 50 miles and climbed a couple of peaks. It was a great trip! Now we just have to wait until March for our return visit.

Fairmont Lake Louise stands out as the pinnacle among the Fairmont hotels we have experienced. The allure of the gold room with its breathtaking lake view is nothing short of enchanting. While the room offers ample space, we noted a slight constraint in the area between the toilet and shower. However, the gold lounge surpassed our expectations with its diverse array of snacks, pre-dining canapés, and breakfast selections. The staff at the gold lounge exemplified unparalleled professionalism, embodying the epitome of luxury service. In comparison to our stays at Fairmont Banff and Jasper during this trip, Fairmont Lake Louise undoubtedly excelled. We eagerly anticipate a return visit, particularly in the springtime, to witness the lake's transformative beauty anew.

This was a big trip I've been wanting to take for a long time to skate on the ice. While the conditions weren't great due to unseasonably warm temps and snowfall, this is a beautiful place. Staff were incredibly helpful and my sister was able to squeeze in a massage on our arrival. Bavarian curling was very enjoyable! You should have an outdoor bar that way to enjoy while playing! I'd like to suggest that snow on the lake be removed all the way to the benches. It is very hazardous to try and walk in the snow with skate blades to the open surface. Now, I realize this is a Five-Star Resort but food costs can add up quickly and Lake Louise has very limited dining options. Tables are hard to come by at other hotels in the town or more overpriced food elsewhere. Please offer a casual option to help lighten the hit on the wallet like a sports bar. Even the Gaylord does this.

The resort is set in the most beautiful location. Absolutely gorgeous , beyond words. We stayed in a room, on the Gold level with a lake view Feb 2024. The reason I scored 10 is because every staff member we encountered throughout our stay went above and beyond with their professionalism, manners and friendliness. The resort activities were excellent, with a special call out to Harrison organizing the Bavarian Curling. We will return for sure.

The service is even better than the location and iconic property. Plenty to do and activities reserved for guests so it is worth staying overnight even for a short visit. The staff take a genuine interest in making your stay an experience to remember.

This is our 2nd trip to the Chateau Lake Louise and it just keeps getting better and better. In order to enjoy a great breakfast and excellent service, we opt for the gold level and it's always a solid choice. We enjoyed a very nice corner room with a view of both the woods and the lake. Thank you to Kathleen, of the gold lounge, for the room upgrade and for helping us throughout out stay. The breakfast buffet was always excellent - and we like the freedom of showing up for early morning coffee, heading back to the room, and then enjoying a really nice buffet breakfast before catching the shuttle to the ski mountain. Romeo, cranking out some delicious omelettes and a great high energy vibe, was the highlight of each morning. Thank you to Romeo for some excellent omelettes and a great start to each day. The evening hors d'oeuvres were solid and we would generally have a glass of wine in the lounge before heading out to a local dinner. Tip: the hotel has a shuttle service that will drive you to the local restaurants in Lake Louise. We had a great meal at the Outpost (kinda a luxury rustic pub) as well as a Bill Peyto's (local, inexpensive, low key and good). We also heard great things about the Station. If you want to grab a dinner, outside of the hotel, the shuttle service is a nice option. The folks working the shuttle service are also very, very nice! Shuttle to mountain: We generally grabbed the 9:00 shuttle to the mountain - super easy and we checked out skis downstairs just outside of the shuttle area. The trip to the mountain takes about 10 minutes - return trip would normally happen around 3:30 for us. It makes for a very easy, and fun, ski day! Lake: The location on the lake is really, really amazing. The views constantly change, based on the light and the conditions, and the skating area is a lot of fun. Walking around the lake is also very nice, with easy groomed trails, and amazing views. Lounge: It's really helpful having an open breakfast with coffee throughout the morning. Pancakes, fruit, eggs, potatoes, cheese, smoke salmon, coffee, juice, bagels, and just about anything else that you might need are available during breakfast. During the day, you have access to the lounge and watersodascoffee and other light snacks and cookies. An additional shout out to Ken of the gold level for a lot of assistance and helping with our checkout. Everyone was helpful, provided restaurant recommendations, tips, and generally made our trip great! Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is a special place and we have some great memories! Thanks to everyone at the Fairmont Lake Louise for a nice stay! Tip: If you are skiing, you may want to consider the free 'Ski with Friends' program. This is very well organized and meets at 10:00 and then 1:15 at the mountain. People select their skill level and then a local guide leads that group (about 3-5 people) around the mountain. It's a great way to see the mountains, ski with people of similar ability (i.e. my son did expert and I did blue), and generally have a great ski day.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here over the family day long weekend and had the most incredible experience. From the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out, we felt so pampered. We were originally in a gold king room but upon arrival we were upgraded to lake view! The staff set the room up to celebrate our day and did a beautiful job, it was so greatly appreciated. All the staff from the gold lounge to the restaurants to the coffee shop to the in room dining were so welcoming and truly made our weekend beyond special. We can’t thank you all enough! We would absolutely return again and we highly suggest springing for the gold services! You won’t be disappointed :)
