The dining and tea rooms of this very grand hotel have great views of the lake. However, meals here are very expensive. The hotel does have a coffee shop with some good snacks.

Stunning setting and hotel but overrated. We stayed there as part of a package tour for the Rocky Mountain Explorer. Perhaps the early spring season was the problem as the hotel seemed to be in transition from winter. The place was still full but seemed...More

I would need to get the thesaurus out to get enough superlatives to describe this hotel. The service from the first point of contact to checking out could not have been better. The facilities were first rate and the view from our room cannot be...More

I'm staying at the Chateau after travelling on the Rocky Mountaineer, 1 night only. It appears we get in around 7-8pm so wont be able to do much that night - sightseeing wise - but the next day I'm booked in Banff so have most of the day to explore Lake Louise area. (Hoping the hotel will keep my luggage til I'm ready to go.) what are the must sees, can I wander around alone or should I book some kind of tour. some one mentioned mirror lake - is it a relatively easy hike. i'm a little fit but wont have hiking boots, only walking shoes so dont want to mountain climb. this is towards the end of September. oh, and any suggestions how I get from LL to Banff. TIA all.

Sounds like this would be a good time for you to quit since many places are now non-smoking.
