The hotel’s top suites each have private balconies overlooking the lake and mountains.


An unrivalled location, the Chateau occupies one of Canada’s most exclusive addresses, right on the shores of famous Lake Louise and within Banff National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Guests can simply step out and enjoy the lake outside of peak hours, avoiding the hustle and bustle of the daytime tourists.
