Special mention to Florence Chen who assisted us during our stay. She made our trip very memorable. Her warm hospitality immediately made us feel at home. The staff at the Gold Lounge were friendly. We stayed at the Gold Fairmont Lakeview. The scenery is just amazing. My wife couldn't asked for more. We are looking forward to see the place again in spring fall. Must go place and this is the hotel where you want to be in Lake Louise.

Beautiful location

We enjoyed the hotel and the views from our Lake view room- opening the curtains one morning we saw the first snow of the season which was magical as were the walks towards the glacier. Overall a magnificent experience in a wonderful hotel.

lovely trip

We stayed at hotel as part of our 3week Canadian tour. Stafd were brilliant and very helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the view from our room looled right onto the lake which was stunning. The only downside would be that there are alot of tourists that feely walk around the inside of the hotel making it quite congested. Otherwise a lovely stay.

Beautiful, Romantic Lake Louise

The historic Fairmont Lake Louise was all that we had hoped for and more. Our room overlooked lake Louise with its' incredible tourquoise blue water. It was a very comfortable room, with a great sitting area overlooking the front of the hotel and lake. Flowers were everywhere and exceptional. The only down side was that unknown to us the hotel is not totally air conditioned, and although not horrible hot we did ask for and received a room air conditioner, which solved the problem. The staff seemed very eager to please. The food was good at the top two restaurants. We really enjoyed ourselves at this charming and historic hotel

Couples Getaway

The scenery is incredible - postcard picture perfect. This more than makes up for the comfortable but relatively small rooms which do not have air conditioning unless requested in which case you are given a portable unit with a hose sticking out the window and is very noisy! But the hotel is very elegant. Food at all restaurants fabulous. And the service is outstanding. You are paying for the location, for us, well worth it. If you are up for one of the best albeit challenging hikes you will ever experience, do the Fairview Mountain trail all the way to the summit. Allow 5+ hours. Absolutely incredible! The sunrise canoe experience at the hotel is another must-do, well worth the 5am wakeup!
