Everything that could be said about the Chateau's location, facilities and activities have been recorded many times. However, in some respects, the Chateau is being overwhelmed by the sheer number of guests and day visitors. In particular, the Chateau accommodates a huge number of package-tour guests who generally only stay for one night. One of the outcomes of this is that one of the hotel's restaurants (the mid-level Poppy Brasserie) appears to be almost always booked out for these guests. This means the remaining (and dare I say it, those probably paying higher tariffs than the package tours) guests can only reserve the expensive Fairview restaurant or a fondue restaurant. Two other restaurant/bars are available, but these are invariably busy and cannot be reserved.
Whilst package tours provides the Chateau with a steady income, a hotel with such a reputation needs to ensure arrangements are in place for full-paying guests as well.
In summary, the Chateau Lake Louise is an iconic destination in an exquisite location, but for full paying guests, as a hotel it doesn't meet the standards of the rest of the Fairmont chain.
