What We Love

  • In-your-face Mother Nature at her wilderness best
  • The newest spa jewel in spacentric Fairmont’s renowned collection
  • Very pet-friendly even in the main building’s ornate Great Hall
  • Jasper Park is Fairmont’s 2009 Environmental Hotel of the Year

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.

Worst experience ever!

we called the hotel around 8 am the morning before we were arriving and asked if we can check in earlier so we can get on the highway from Edmonton earlier, we were told to simply arrive and let the check in counter know we are here, after arriving at approximately at 12:30pm we were told that our room would take around 30 mins to be cleaned, we were also told that we would be sent a text when the room is ready, after waiting for 3 hours and checking with the counter three times we were told that a text was sent to us which wasn’t! That leaves us with one hour to shower and get ready for our 4Pm reservations in town, we were sent out to our room about a 5 min drive, to find a simple room with no bottled water of any sort to drink, I personally could have cleaned the entire room in 20 mins but it’s clear that we were not a priority to them! The evening comes and we are trying to sleep when every 10-15 mins the power lock of the backdoor keeps making a sound like it’s locking! The toilet is running water all night long, the clock is ticking so loud that I had to remove the battery from it! Over all this was the worst Experience I’ve ever had from a supposed luxury resort! This is absolutely disappointing! When someone drives 4 hours to come spend some quiet and peaceful time and wants to spend their hard earned money in this establishment think twice before you come here, I won’t be ever Again!

Will return

Friendly, very relaxed. In a separate cottage away from main lodge with 3 rooms, sitting room/kitchen, hall, front deck. Very private. Resort with big lake. Lodge restaurants good and breakfasts huge and delicious.

Could have stayed there for a long time...

Beautiful hotel--we had a lovely suite on the lake. I'm not sure about other rooms, but there wasn't anything outdated about our room. The lodge area is beautiful and welcoming. The grounds are outstanding. We'll be back.
