What We Love

  • In-your-face Mother Nature at her wilderness best

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.

JPL- No longer a place for adults
Reviewed 2 days ago

Stayed in a cabin on the lake, second time, and it truly is amazing, especially around Christmas. This is the second time I've stayed here, same cabin and I really have no complaints about the room. Clean, relaxing, the details are amazing as well.
The grounds in December are absolutely stunning, even without snow! Skating was great! Food was great, hot tub was great... pretty much everything.

The only thing I wasn't happy with was the amount of children/babies running around screaming, jumping on furniture, crying in all the restaurants within the property. It was ridiculous. If you come here expecting a relaxing, quiet atmosphere while eating, you wont get it. This isn't a Fairmont thing, it's a parenting thing.... but regardless... it wasn't cool.

Never disappointed

The service at the Jasper Park Lodge is always outstanding and this trip was no different. We went for our 40th anniversary and were treated royally. The facilities are always top notch and we will absolutely return.

Family friendly with lots of activities and amazing service from the staff!!!

The main lodge is absolutely beautiful, staff are incredibly friendly. We really love that they have lots of great things for the kids to enjoy such as a treasure chest where kids can pick a toy each day for free, candy bar for the kids at no cost, game room and amazing live acoustic musing in the main lodge most nights. The rooms are slightly outdated but we enjoy more of a rustic feel anyway when staying in the mountains, but by no means is it dirty. We've stayed in some amazing hotels across the world and I will say that we love this place. Only downfall is for families on a tighter budget you'd probably need to eat offsite for breakfast or dinner as it can get costly. The staff do work hard at making the kids meals half price etc.

A True Canadian Treasure

I've had the great fortune to stay at the JPL 4-5 times as a conference venue location. It doesn't disappoint in any way. The accommodations and activities in and around the complex are first class, whether you are going for a wintry swim in the outdoor pool (or any time of the year) or taking a hiking or mountain biking adventure, literally just outside your door. The food is awesome and it's memorably awesome. You will not forget this great landmark and historical gem. You get a real sense that you are part of the long-standing rocky mountain experience when you have the privilege to stay here.

Cozy and friendly - Winter Wonderland!!

What a winter retreat!!! We came here in the beginning of December for a family holiday. Had a great time! Beautiful decorations for Christmas and the lodge was buzzing with happiness and good cheer :)

The bar area (Emerald Lounge) is very cozy and they offer delicious food and wine. There is a rec room with billiards and foosball to keep the kids occupied.

The outdoor pool was spectacular and has the most amazing view of the mountains.

Highly recommend getting ice skates and skating on Mildred Lake! There’s a cozy cabin on the lake so you can warm up afterwards.

Had a wonderful stay and really appreciated the friendly staff!!
