Epic Stays
by Morgane Croissant Jan 9, 2023

Banff National Park is the most picture-perfect part of Canada. Towering mountains, thick forests of evergreens, wildlife ranging from grizzlies to pikas, unbelievably blue lakes, heaps of snow in the winter, and amazingly colorful leaves in the fall all combine to make this area of the country one of the most appealing ones to visit. But to see Banff National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, as it should be, in the lap of luxury, there’s only one hotel where you should stay: the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.

Lake Louise is a village located in Banff National Park. While only 40 minutes by car from its incredibly famous neighbor Banff Town, also within the park, it’s a lot smaller and quieter. Of course that does not mean there’s nothing do around Lake Louise; there are plenty of restaurants to sit for a lovely meal, and many places to spend the night, but few beat the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.

The village of Lake Louise is named after the beautiful nearby lake along the shore of which the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise sits. Like its name hints at, the hotel has been designed to look like a castle and inside, you’ll feel like royalty. Each of the 539 room in this resort are opulent, but the ones with views of the lake are especially breathtaking. Of course, staying there isn’t cheap, but waking up to vistas that spectacular is priceless.

The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, like any luxury hotel worth its salt, has a spa offering all sorts of treatments from massages to nail services to facials, as well as a few restaurants and bars to keep you satiated after you’ve hiked the surrounding trails or skied the slopes of the hill next door.

If you decide to book a stay at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, know that Matador may collect a small commission.
