How it Ranks: The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise ranks #2 out of 77 Banff Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in Banff.

Our Take: Set in scenic Banff National Park, this Fairmont resort impresses visitors with its gorgeous setting. Inside, visitors are greeted with accommodations outfitted with cable TVs, coffee makers and refreshment areas. Most recent guests suggest splurging for a lakeside suite, claiming the higher rate is well worth the additional space and enchanting views. In winter, guests can enjoy sleigh rides and ice skating; and in summer, visitors are invited to take advantage of horseback riding and whitewater rafting opportunities. When it comes to dining, guests have a wide selection of options ranging from regionally-influenced dishes in the main dining room, Italian fare at Lago, and Swiss- and German-inspired entrees at Walliser Stube. For a particularly memorable meal, previous visitors suggest dining at the hotel's Lakeview Lounge, which affords gorgeous vistas of Victoria Glacier. Fairmont President's Club members may redeem award nights or earn extra benefits, like complimentary room upgrades, for choosing to stay here.
