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.
Please note: Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise’s restaurants and bars are accessible to registered hotel guests only with the exception of Afternoon Tea, which is available to day visitors to Lake Louise.
