People often do things in hotels that they would never do in their own homes, such as sleep soundly, watch Marley and Me, or let the kids drink as much shampoo as they want. Let loose with today's Groupon: for $159, you get a one-night stay in a Fairmont room (up to a $329 value) at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, located in Banff National Park.
Founded in 1890, Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise complements a breath-stealing outer landscape with a luxurious home base. Ensconced amid the cushioned depths of a king, queen, or two twin beds in a 165-square-foot Fairmont room, guests can recharge after a day of ice skating swishes, downhill-ski-slope swoops, and other alpine exertions. An indoor health club and the Mountain Heritage program’s guided outdoor tours—such as relaxing strolls around the lake to norepinephrine-extolling trips—round out the resort’s activity offerings. In the spa, a massage therapist’s talented talons can exile tension from stressed shoulders and burdened backs to time out in the fourth dimension, and the hotel’s seven dining venues can sate ample appetites with fresh, nutritionally balanced ingredients.
Out of respect for the stunning wilderness views and endangered yetis everywhere, half of Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise’s electricity comes from eco-friendly turbines spun by wind, river currents, and flocks of obedient hamsters, and the hotel dedicates a full-time environmental manager to its responsible-tourism and environmental-stewardship initiatives. If the furry friends that populate the surrounding woods aren’t enough to keep you company, the hotel hosts pets for an extra fee ($25/night). See the website’s dedicated Groupon page for more details.
