  • I stayed here with a few girlfriends who I wanted to treat to a night at the lakeside hotel. I was “upgraded” from a double Queen room to a king suite. They accommodated an early check in which was amazing because I had a friend who wasn’t feeling good who was able to nap while we went out for the day. The reason for the lower star rating was that the pullout couch bed was uncomfortable to the point that one of my friends slept of the floor with camping materials. We also had dinner at the bar restaurants, and the food just wasn’t very good for a place this nice. I hope the upscale restaurants have better food, but I have had far better food at less nice accommodations. We went into town for breakfast the next day and had a much better experience. The service was top notch, and being right on the lake is worth the price. The food needs to be improved for sure. I would also recommend having people with sensitive backs not use the pullout couch.
  • My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we were treated incredibly well during every aspect of our stay. The room was beautiful and had a lake view, the dining experience was fantastic, even down to the chocolate croissant that I purchased from the deli. That croissant was probably the best I've ever had, however, I didn't finish it, as a bird at Lake Agnes snatched it from my hand. Also worth noting are the amenities around the hotel. They are abundant and as someone who rarely gets to see the mountains, they were breathtaking. The Lake Agnes Tea House hike, while exhausting, was worth every bit of effort. I'd highly recommend it! That and renting a canoe out on Lake Louise. Very touristy, but such a wonderful experience! Again, every aspect of our stay was absolutely wonderful!
