  • We have always been impressed with the various Fairmount properties we have been fortunate to stay at and the Chateau did not disappoint. Obviously things are not as "open" as we would have...  more »
  • No better place to enjoy Lake Louise that the Fairmont sitting at the edge of the lake. Amenities and facilities that need no mention.  more »
  • Unbelievable experience! I celebrated a ‘big’ Birthday there & it was perfect! Staff went out of their way to accommodate us! I felt very safe during this ‘CoVid time’ at the Fairmont as all staff...  more »

  • This place is amazing. If you've never been here before, I suggest you add this to your list of places to see. This is, and always will be one of my favorite places in Canada to visit. This place is second to none. Summer or Winter, it really doesn't matter for me. I just love being here. It's beyond incredible.
  • This is such a beautiful and idyllic place. It's great art any time of year but summer and fall are my favorite. It gets really busy so you need to come early in the morning or later in the evening. Lots of great hikes to do here and I highly recommend renting a canoe.
  • For a visitor it was enjoyable. To be able to get out of the car and look at the lake. Go for a walk or just sit and enjoy the scenery. The hotel has a small cafe with good food choices. It is a great spot to relax and take it all in. It would have been perfect if a few less people were there. Glad to see others enjoying it also.
  • Beautiful here, even in the winter. The skating rink we're unbelievable cool and we wish we brought our skates. If you are trying to keep things cheap, definitely pack your own food...
  • This place will quite literally take your breath away. From start to finish my husband and I felt first class by every staff member. Our first wedding anniversary was a unforgettable experience staying here. The Ice Bar was a definite favorite along with skating on the beautiful lake. Would absolutely recommend anyone to stay here and will be planning on staying again. If I could give this magical place more stars I would!!!
