What We Love

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.

Just arrived and wowed by the beautiful surroundings but the rooms are small and HAVE NO AIR CONDITIONING AT ALL. I asked to be put in another room and was told that none of the rooms had AC as we are in a National Park. Funny that they can have heating in a NP and not cooling. Sounds like rubbish to me. We have stayed in other hotels within a NP and they had heating and cooling. We have requested a larger fan, so we can circulate warm air around us. We have stayed in Fairmont properties before and have been so impressed by their elegance. Hope this two day stay improved. Will keep you posted

Lake Louise and Banff get the headlines but the setting at Jasper is more relaxed and expansive. The 6 room lodge we enjoyed was comfortable and clean. You can walk for hours and take your camera for perfect views all around. All the restaurants are excellent and some are expensive. Rack of lamb superb.

More than expected

We really enjoyed our stay the Jasper Park Lodge. We actually preferred this Fairmont over Chateau Lake Louise, simply because the service was much better in Jasper.
We found all of the staff we encountered to be very friendly and helpful, and always had a smile. We ordered room service for lunch; our bison burger and chicken sandwich arrived quickly and were very good. The pool here was our favourite- it's a nicely heated pool, with a hot tub, bar service and amazing mountain views. We also enjoyed the area for a bonfire, though we had a surprise guest- an elk came right up to our bonfire circle! You are in nature out here, so be careful and watch for the wildlife.
We hope to return to Jasper Park Lodge in the future for another great stay.

THE most awesome setting!

First up, the rooms are not that great. Pretty basic and well overdue a makeover, BUT, the hotel setting... WOW! Probably the best I’ve ever experienced! The mountains, the lake, the blue sky, trees, just all-round amazing scenery. Twice we dined on the terrace for lunch and simply could not believe our eyes - almost unreal! So, despite the dates, chalet-style rooms, all is forgiven at this hotel. It is simply amazing and we loved every minute. Tip, if I went again, I would pay the extra and book a signature lodge - fantastic outdoor space and a barbecue, apparently, which would have been perfect (especially as Jasper town is not much to write home about).

Brunch, no afternoon tea at this Fairmont

We dined at the Emerald Lodge which overlooks the property’s lake. We couldn’t sit on the patio as the rain was coming down but we got the next best seat...right next to the massive fireplace with the crackle and roar of the fire...it was awesome. The food and service were also as expected from The Fairmont, exquisite. Iced tea was so good I asked for one to go and our waitress kindly did so.
