There are days when the vivid color of Lake Louise is so alluring, I have to struggle to steer clear of windows so I can get on with my inspection.
AAA Inspector Notes
This château-style, grande dame hotel sits on a lake—considered by some to be a "Wonder of the World"—surrounded by ruggedly beautiful mountains and glaciers. Lovely rooms range in size and grandeur. The upscale Fairview Bar & Restaurant is one of the most sought after dining options for fantastic views of the lake and a tantalizing menu that explores a diverse seasonal selection of cuisine utilizing top-notch ingredients. Reservations are limited to hotel guests although walk-ins are sometimes available for outside guests. They also offer a delightful afternoon tea which anyone can book. Seemingly endless activities, including yoga on the dock, stretching, boot camp sessions and even painting opportunities are offered. The numerous family and children's activities include pajama parties, photo scavenger hunts, kids’ campouts and canoe racing for teens. Winter activities include skating on the lake, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and sleigh rides. Pay activities include a fantastic spa, numerous dining options, canoe rentals, horseback riding, guided hikes and world-class skiing.
