Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise Hotels

The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is another iconic long-standing resort in Banff National Park. If you’re looking for luxury accommodation with plenty of amenities in a location surrounded by mountains and remote backcountry, this is the place for you.

Although be forewarned this is easily the most expensive place to stay in Banff. Prices at times feel downright excessive and it likely fetches some of the highest room rates in all of Canada. You’re paying for location here because the rooms are nothing to write home about and the service is lacking for the price point. Easy to understand why when the hotel has 530 rooms.

That being said this stately resort overlooks the stunning Lake Louise and it is an icon.  On-site amenities include an indoor pool, hot tub, steam room, and fitness area with a stretching room. The resort spa offers many services, including massages, body scrubs, and facials.

Various activities are also available on-site and nearby, including guided mountain tours, skiing, hiking, canoeing, sleigh rides, snowshoeing, skating, and dog sledding. Lakeview Lounge, Walliser Stube, Poppy Brasserie, and Fairview Bar and Restaurant are some of the eateries available, offering a variety of dining experiences.

Moraine Lake Lodge

Moraine Lake Lodge

Moraine Lake Lodge may be set in the most scenic setting for a lodge in the entire world on the shores of Moraine Lake. It’s an incredible location for a lodge that delivers high levels of service. Rooms are a series of cabins that are spread across grounds set along the Lake.

Inside each room is tasteful mountain decor such as pinewood beds and a wood fireplace. Coffee and tea inside stations in the room are particularly nice for mornings on private balconies that offer mountain and lake views. Included in room rates is tea time, breakfast, dinner, wine, and activities such as canoeing and hiking. The free canoe rental is a particularly nice perk as it costs $120 an hour for non-guests.

Of course, for the level of service, quality of accommodation, including food, and free activities the hotel regularly sells out. This means that room rates can be very high in peak summer months. Those summer months are the only operating months as the road to Moraine Lake closes in October.

A number of recently renovated rooms are a particular highlight with fireplaces in the rooms. However, the majority of rooms are fairly basic and are absent things like a mini-fridge.
