Fairmont Château Lake Louise

Lake Louise Dr., Lake Louise, Alberta, T0L 1E0, Canada

The view out the Fairmont's back door is dramatic and then some, with terraces and lawns that reach to the famous aquamarine lake, itself backed by the Victoria Glacier. Guest rooms have neocolonial furnishings, and some have terraces. The hotel began as a wooden chalet in 1890, but after a 1924 fire it was given its stone facade. The several dining choices range from family dining in the Brasserie to night-on-the-town elegance in the Fairview Dining Room. Horseback riding and canoeing are available on the property during the summer. In winter, you can enjoy a sleigh ride around the lake or rent ice skates to skate on Lake Louise. If you join the free Fairmont President's Club prior to your visit, during your stay you can enjoy complimentary Internet access, free local calling, and discounts at the spa and shops.
