Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Jan 2013
Stayed here overnight New Years Eve with my sisters.
Rooms were very spacious, well decorated and comfortable. Our luggage was in our room by the time we went up. I especially liked that they provided four bathrobes along with the towels. One for each sister to use!
This was probably the most pleasant, comfortable stay I have ever had anywhere! I highly recommend this to anyone who needs a little pampering. You feel like royalty from the moment you arrive!
Date of stay: January 2013
Room Tip: We really liked the big windows in our third floor suite.
Trip type: Travelled with family

    Amazing plaCe for white Xmas
    What an amazing place. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a lake view room on the third floor. Check in was quick and room easy to find. There is an array is of shops and dining options available. Our room was small but the view was amazing. The bed was so soft an guaranteed a great nights sleep. The Chateau had so many Christmas activities happening. It was great. I noted that th property won a four diamond award this year. You don't get that unless you are good.

    Anyone who's ever been to Lake Louise around the holidays will definitely know the meaning of a White Christmas! We're so lucky to be in this setting and I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We are incredibly proud of our AAA Four Diamond award, both for the hotel and the Fairview Dining Room. We hope to see you back again next Christmas!

    Warm Regards,

    We just returned from three nights at the Chateau which included New Years Eve. This place isn't cheap, but it is luxurious. Standard rooms are small, but not an issue. We opted for the mountain view room which was breathtaking. I'm sure the lake view would have been even more so, but in the winter the sun comes up late and it sets early, so unless you're spending the day in your room (hope not!) it made no difference. Plus, the view is still amazing. We wanted to spend the extra money on other hotel amenities, which we did. We enjoyed massages in the spa, had a great dinner in the Fairview Dining Room (tip: it's dark early, so maybe go for lunch instead to get the view). On New Years Eve we spent the day and evening at the ski hill, but returned to a classy and fun party near the lobby. The piano player they had was phenomenal and everyone was having lots of fun. The following day we enjoyed a fantastic New Years Day brunch. I don't think I've ever had a more expensive brunch (without booze) but we wanted to enjoy ourselves and the Fairmont didn't let us down. We had a great window seat overlooking the lake/mountains and the food was nothing short of amazing. I'd recommend joining the President's Club -- it's free and you get free wi-fi for joining and a discount in the spa. There's a free shuttle that runs every 20 minutes to the ski hill and while we didn't use it, we would rent the skis from the hotel in the future to avoid the lineups. All in, an expensive but glorious visit to the Chateau. Highly recommend this treat to anyone and everyone. The mountains are incredible.

    Room tip: The mountain view room was excellent.

    We only had one night here but had a Lake View Room and could not believe the view! Pictures cannot do justice and how can you really explain the beauty of the scenery to anyone who has not experienced it. The staff were very helpful. It was New Year's Eve. We went on a sleigh ride at 4 pm. Even though blankets were provided it was very cold. The hotel is magnificient. We had lunch in the deli and had a lovely big bowl of minestrone soup! Went down very well. We had breakfast from the deli also. GCereals, hot oats, fresh fruit, and all of the usual bagels and sweets that we have become used to seein but give them a wide berth. We had dinner in Poppy which is the brasserie overlooking the lake. Food was delicious, service was impeccable! We retired around 10.30, not being too into late night revellery, and the hotel was quiet though there were a lot of activities going on. We slept in late and had our breakfast from the deli before continuing on our journey.

    Room tip: Ask for a lake view room.

    I have always seen the pictures of this hotel but until you have been there you can never truly appreciate just how breatktaking the hotel and location is.
    Hotel is big and set right on the lake, the rooms are great and comfy and offer all you really need.
    There is a stables right next to the hotel where you can pay to ride on horseback up the mountain which I would recomend people do as it truly is an experience like no other, just wrap uo warm!

    Thank you very much for posting your review! No matter how many times I see it, the view of the glacier and lake never ceases to amaze me. I'm please you got a chance to experience Brewster Stables - they've been in that location about as long as the hotel's been here! We hope to see you again.

    Our son and daughter in law were attending their work Christmas party at the Chateau and were asked to come along and babysit our little grandson. Lake Louise is truly a jewel in the Canadian rockies. We live in Calgary, so the 2 hour drive was easy and relaxing on a beautiful snowy winter morning. (Make sure you have a vehicle with snow tires!!!) We have never actually stayed at the Chateau before, so we were surprised to find out you have to pay $20 for parking even if you are a guest of the hotel. So many people just go for a visit and do some shopping that the parking lots are packed. There is free parking across the road if you want to walk, but too far to carry luggage through the snow. The rooms are very old, but well renovated. Lovely bathroom and bed is top grade. Flat screen TV, but no free internet. We spent the afternoon shopping in the many upscale shops. We had our grandbaby for dinner, so we opted to sit in the pub overlooking Lake Louise and have some pub food. Too bad they didn't have a very large menu, but we were happy that they let us in with baby. Pretty pricey although the quality was excellent.
    Good thing we brought our playpen from home because the crib provided was very old with a thin thin mattress.
    The following morning we were treated to a group breakfast buffet provided by our son and daughter in laws company. Wow is all I can say. That was the best breakfast buffet every!!!!
    On a side note we all came down with a bad case of Norwalk flu, I am sure from all the breakfast hugging and hand shaking and transferring of baby from person to person. Hope this was handled by the hotel.

    Room tip: Ask for a room facing the lake. Every room has a mountain view,but we were facing the parking lot. Still gorgeous.
