Every once in awhile, I look to book a stay at the luxurious Lake Louise Resort Hotel, the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and when I’m splurging here, I treat us to Fairmont Gold Lakeview Room as I really love sitting by the window watching the frozen lake, to see the skaters. We got upgraded to their Fairmont Gold Junior Suite though! How amazing is that!?
Once you get into the room, there’s a bit of a foyer area, and to the side is the bathroom. The room is quite spacious and the bed is really amazing.
The bathroom is really large, it’s got both the tub and walk in shower. The space here is extremely spacious and very luxurious.
The nice thing is, you even get a little water closet (toilet area) with a separate door. Sometimes I love it and when in the middle of the night I have to use the bathroom, I hate it! But overall it’s a concept I like for a hotel room!
The room itself is also large, with a lot of desk and counter space! There’s seating area, desk space, and space all around!
Overall, I love it here. It’s my favourite modern hotel in the Rocky Mountains that I’ve stayed at so far. The service is always top notch, food wise, if I dare say.. nothing has come comparable! The Fairmont Gold breakfast buffet is the best here as well! If you’re doing an afternoon tea, this is the location I would recommend it!

I’ve been really fortunate with the people I meet, the place I go, and the things that happen during all my visits anywhere. This particular visit to Fairmont Palliser in downtown Calgary was truly one of my most memorable stays ever! I got to experience their “Hotel within a Hotel” with Fairmont Gold.
We got an upgraded room to their Fairmont Gold Room that offered a king bed, seating area, desk and and a few extra special privileges while being a guest during this stay. Once we got into our room, we noticed it’s the biggest room we’ve ever stayed in at the Palliser, so we were really excited. The large king bed was front and center which is always a delight! Bedtime is one of my favourite times!
The bathroom was also bigger and offered more bathroom amenities, which is so nice as it’s really rare to have amenities such as cotton swabs, mouthwash, and shoe shine cloth!
My favourite part about the stay was experiencing the Fairmont Lounge, which is on their Penthouse floor which offers complimentary breakfast and hor d’oeuvres during the evening. We made an effort to be at both and the food is fantastic! It’s a great place to sit and read, with a nice snack, or just some quiet time.
The stay was perfect and now we consider upgrading to Fairmont Gold when we know we’re going to be in the hotel more for future stays.
Be sure to watch the room walk through as it was a fantastic room we had!
