Chateau Lake Louise or Banff Springs for Ski Vacation

Planning a 6 day ski trip to Banff area in late December. We are taking our 5 and 6 year old sons. I have stayed at Lake Louis about 8 years ago and loved it, but wanted recent feedback on hotel. If anyone has stayed at both (especially with kids!) would love to know your preference. Thanks so much for your help.

I live here so you are taking to a local.

Both hotels are owned by Canadian Pacific which owns the Fairmont Chain. They are both excellent choices, however, I would lean towards the Springs as there would be more for you and your kids to do.

In addition, the Springs has spent $70 million on renovations and the hotle is truly breath taking. Anything else? Email me direct if you like.

i think i'd have to agree with the above poster. more variety of things to do in banff in the evenings with kids. while not even close to the extravagence of the springs hotel, the douglas fur resort has a waterslide in their hotel which might amuse the kids.
