Lavish spa, gourmet cuisine and numerous amenities
Light sleepers should request a room on the Preferred Side of the hotel for a quieter room
Situated in Lake Louise (about a 35-mile drive northwest of Banff), Post Hotel & Spa woos its guests with rustic luxury. This Relais & Châteaux hotel's accommodations range from cozy guest rooms outfitted with whirlpool tubs and wood-beamed ceilings to luxe suites with fireplaces and multiple bedrooms. Some guests do note that a passing train can disrupt an otherwise peaceful night's rest; if you're a light sleeper, request a room on the quieter Preferred Side of the hotel, which faces trees, cabins and the property's lawn area. The on-site Temple Mountain Spa, on the other hand, receives consistently high marks for its relaxing massages and gorgeous mountain views. If you would rather tackle the slopes than admire them, Post Hotel & Spa sits just minutes from the Lake Louise Ski Area. Plus, you can book special ski packages through the hotel if you're planning on a few days of skiing.
