Yes, very nice Nat. Thank you for sharing.

On a side note, I really love Chateau Lake Louise. It’s absolutely stunning.

Oh yes and not the least of which is it probably overlooking one of the most beautiful and majestic sites on earth. I visited it last year and it lived up to all my expectations and then some.

Yeah there is something about a beautiful and dominating building with the backdrop of natural beauty.

It's also got a pretty different style from the others and is said to be the largest log building in the world.

It hosted the G7 summit in the 1980s.

Very rustic. I like it and that fireplace is just WOW. This hotel is the largest log building structure in the world built with 10000 red cedar logs from B.C

Yeah the fireplace is amazing and the whole thing is really magical when decorated for Christmas.

There is a mezzanine that surrounds the large main floor area which is adorned with large paintings depicting scenes from Canadian history.

When we have visitors from abroad we always take them there to walk around even if we don't stay the night.

The swimming pool in a separate building is also pretty neat and feels like something from another era.

I will say the CN Tower is still one of my favorite observation decks.

Something about that view is amazing.

I've stayed at the Fort Garry, I should have added it to my list. Sorry Winnipeg!

The Chateau style is so iconic in Canada that it's no surprise Le Manoir Richelieu was built in 1989 in that style.

That same year, Chateau Whistler was built in Whistler, BC.

I think you read too quickly there. The Manoir Richelieu in Pointe-au-Pic was built in 1889, so a century before the Château Whistler my friend!

The original Manoir Richelieu was wooden and burned to the ground in 1928,
it was rebuilt in concrete in 1929.

Similar to the Banff Springs Hotel...also originally a wooden structure...it also was destroyed in a fire ...current hotel was built in sections, the main part constructed in 1914.
