Fodor's Expert Review Post Hotel

200 Pipestone Rd., Lake Louise, Alberta, T0L 1E0, Canada

A bright red roof and post-and-beam construction have made this Swiss chalet–style, Relais & Châteaux property—one of the finest retreats in the Rocky Mountains—something of a Lake Louise landmark; understated elegance, stellar dining, and lots of amenities have made it internationally renowned. Accommodations range from standard doubles to deluxe suites with king-size beds and river-stone fireplaces to even more spacious units with sleeping lofts, fireplaces, and whirlpool tubs. If you like old-fashioned, in-the-mountains romance, try one of the three stream-side log cabins. The restaurant uses fresh, seasonal ingredients and has an incredible wine selection. Amenities include a large pool; a steam room; a hot tub; a fitness room; and the Temple Mountain Spa, which offers a broad range of treatments and packages. There are complimentary bikes in summer and a free ski shuttle in winter.
