What To Know

  • Remote location
  • 1960s guestrooms are charming but not modernized; some are showing their age
  • The restaurants here and in the nearby town of Jasper have a monopoly — since both are in the middle of a national park — so meals can be pricey
  • There’s often construction on-site – right now it’s at the casual restaurant

Overview

The Review

In the midst of the area’s jaw-dropping scenery, Fairmont Jasper Park is the latest of many hotels to call this national park home. Since Fairmont acquired the property just over a decade ago, the resort has been undergoing constant improvement. Case in point: the new-for-this-year $7 million spa.

Over the years the Fairmont Jasper Park has evolved from a fair-weather hotel to a year-round operation; nowadays the lodge delivers immediate access to world-class downhill skiing, snowshoeing, skating and cross-country skiing in the park. In summer, golfers share the number one resort course in all of Canada, with herds of wild elk.

There are no other hotels and few other people, just endless views of the towering Canadian Rockies, the pristine waters of Lake Beauvert and the beauty and wildlife of the surrounding wilderness. To top it all off, the hotel sits at one end of the famed Icefields Parkway, considered one of the greatest drives on earth, summer or winter.

Winter is the resort’s lesser-known secret season, when deep snow and challenging terrain make the 84 trails of the nearby Marmot Basin ski resort extra-appealing. Hundreds of miles of area mountain bike and equestrian trails become cross-country ski routes in winter, and the architectural charm of the main building’s Great Hall is even better with a cocktail in front of a roaring fire.

Great Lodge in Jasper

We spent here 2 days.
We were checked in the 4th line of apartments, the location and the common area were very well equipped and maintained. Nice service and nice welcome.
We ate at Taverna restaurant and the food was good.
Only a note on the apartment: ours was nice but not at the level of the rest of the lodge, that’s why I don’t give 5 star. The apartment was old like refurbished in the ‘80s

Relaxing & Peaceful

The accommodation here is in lodges. We were in a 2 story block of about 12 units however it was very quiet. Others had single lodges so I guess it depends on what you want. There is the lake to enjoy or walk around. Canoeing, a golf course with resident bear, walking trails, wildlife, a heated swimming pool, gym-it goes on. A large common room in the main reception area has restaurants off it where you can dine. Its a fair way into town so the shuttle is good to use. Get a timetable & pick up directions from reception before you go. You can get the tours to pick you up from here as well.

Wonderful stay in Jasper

We loved the Fairmont Jasper Park. We felt relaxed and happy the moment we arrived and they picked us up at the train station. Unlike most large hotels all the rooms are in single story cabin-like buildings so it felt very personal and private. We had a room with two queen beds and a separate sitting room with a fireplace. We also had a fridge and a Keurig. Outside the back door were Adirondack chairs. It was a short walk to the main building, but they were happy to drive if you prefer. We had great food in the lounge, a much more interesting menu than the average bar, and a spectacular view to boot. There are several restaurants, spa, lake activities, golf, and a planetarium on the property and they provide a shuttle service into town. We would love to stay there again.
