Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

111 Lake Louise Dr.
Lake Louise , Alberta , Canada www.fairmont.com
(800) 441-1414

Grand 1892 resort with one of the world's most majestic settings: a sparkling, glacial blue lake surrounded by snowcapped Rocky Mountain peaks. Swiss-inspired public spaces add to the property's alpine feel; guest rooms have less charm but are still cozy. In winter, there's a free shuttle to the enormous nearby ski area, and plenty to do if you don't want to wander that far afield: cross country ski paths start just beyond the hotel's front entrance, and out back there's a lakeside skating rink embellished with a hand-carved ice castle. Summer brings endless options for hiking, canoeing, fishing, and lazing— kick back with an elderflower cocktail and enjoy the knock-out views of Victoria Glacier, one of the jewels of Banff National Park.
