Welcome to Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

Old World romance in the Rockies. National treasure. Historical landmark. When travelers round the world picture Canada’s Rocky Mountains, they are most likely envisioning Lake Louise: its turquoise water framed by towering glaciers and mountains rising steeply from the valley. Originally created for discerning guests arriving by rail, the chalet first built in 1890 sits on the famed shores — like a fairy tale castle at the edge of wilderness.

Elegant and lavish with grand spaces and crafted decorative details, the historical Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is set in Canada’s very first national park, Banff, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The AAA four-diamond, year-round luxury alpine resort is literally surrounded on all sides by nature in all its majesty. Step outside our doors to skate, ski, hike, rejuvenate and explore — or just watch the morning sun illuminate the Victoria Glacier from a comfortable sofa by the lobby lounge windows.

In accordance with regulations implemented by the Government of Alberta, the hotel will be operating with additional mandatory public health measures in place. Effective December 24, these measures include:
• Limit of 10 people maximum per table in restaurants and bars and no mingling between tables
• No interactive activities in restaurants and bars such as dancing, darts and billiards
• Restaurants and bars must stop liquor service at 11:00 p.m. and must close at 12:30 a.m.

Hotel guests and day visitors over the age of 12 years of age must provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test to access all hotel restaurants, bars, spas, pools, retail and any meeting or event held on the property. Masks are mandatory in all indoor public spaces.
