  • We stayed here for the view and paid extra to face the lake. Our room was small but the bed was comfy. A lot of great food available at the restaurants which is, as expected, not cheap. The gym was great. The salesperson at the bookstore was very knowledgeable in local history and suggested good books accordingly. There are also a few trails starting at the resort.
  • Beautiful hotel, and service was excellent. The bell boys were very helpful with our luggage and our rooms were very luxurious. However their age shows and the rooms are a bit worn out. The beds felt lush and were very comfortable. Of course the views of Lake Louise were unbelievable. Beware of the crowds we were there during prime season and there were A LOT of people.
  • Wow! The Fairmont is a spectacular hotel. Gorgeous interior, exterior, and great people. We ate in the small bakery / deli area and the food was terrific. The staff were completely professional and even while we didn't stay in the hotel, made us feel as if we were. The restaurants can get busy as the lake draws in massive crowds. That said, we didn't have a wait at the deli around 3:00 when we ordered our food. Definitely walk around the lobby and shops of the hotel before leaving!
  • This place was wonderful! The scenery was breathtaking and we ate outside to enjoy that beautiful scenery. The food was wonderful, fresh and delicious. The service was great! It was like something out of a movie probably because of the spectacular scenery! I would post some pictures but I can't figure out how to do it on my phone. So sorry! You would really love to see these pictures! I'm not very tech-savvy.
  • Although we did not spend the night, we did enjoy the beautiful scenery! We arrived in the morning, and had to park in overflow parking. A free shuttle bus runs every 15 minutes to take you right up to the top of the parking lot. We visited the dock for some photos, and then embarked on a hike to the Lake Agnes tea house. It was very busy, but that is to be expected on a Saturday. We all had a great time! This is a great day activity to take your out of town visitors to show them the splendor of our side of the Rockies!
