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.

An wonderful mother daughter getaway
Reviewed 9 hours ago

Booked a last minute weekend with my adult daughter for some enjoyment in the snow (perfect weather - temps just rose from -30’s to around 0).
She was so impressed with the resort and finally understood my loyalty to the Fairmont brand. This was my 4th visit to JPL and her first.

The cabin was fantastic, lake front and we had a nice sitting room with two double beds. Right in the middle of everything which was just perfect for us.

We borrowed equipment from the outdoor centre and did a trial on snow shoes, acted like kids again on the tobogganing hill, went skating and then had a well deserved soak in the beautiful outdoor pool.

We had dinner in the lounge and a very delicious lobster eggs benny for breakfast served on the buffet. The service was as always excellent and the staff are so friendly and helpful!

Hope to go again in the fall for another girls getaway!

Great Resort but the service was just OK. For the money that you pay not worth it, take that money and go to the Banff Springs way better service for the price. We had a suite with a Fireplace which we had to call every day for them to bring firewood. Also ice was always a ordeal for them to bring us some waited for an hour the first time after that we just walked to the lobby because calling did not work. So much for booking a cabin suite. Need to Up the service for the price.

Memorable

What I will remember most about this Lodge is the outstanding customer service. I've never experienced anything like it before. From the front desk, to the waitresses, to the concierge, to the chamber maids, to the massage therapist everyone was as courteous and as helpful as could be. I very much liked the layout of the lodge too with the separate cottages. It was more peaceful and cosy than staying in a huge building.

Winter Resort of the North

The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge is one of the best and most comfortable resorts I have been to. The lodge is very cozy, with the fire place and live music. The Staff there are kind and very unique. And the ammenities both room wise and hotel wise are incredible.

I had booked a queen size bed room far from the main lodge, but when I arrived, they had me upgraded to a premium room right by the lake, which comes in 4s. The room had a small living room and a bed room, and when I arrived, I received a hand written note welcoming me to the Property.

For dinner, I ate at the Emerald Lounge and at the Steak house. Both were incredible and the food and service were great. I recommend the HomeMade Ginger Ale too, that drink was my Go-To drink for my whole stay.

Lastly, the best part of this hotel/resort was the pool. To be able to swim out in the warm water pool and enjoy the night sky is just the best way to end the day, and then we jumped over to the hot tub to finish it off.

If you have any doubts about where to stay in Jasper, think no further. The Fairmont JPL is the place to be!

I will want to try visiting during the summer season!

Great dinner at the Moose Nook. Some minor issues with food and the place could generally use a face lift but Holly made up for it with great service and solving any problems we had. Would gladly go back!
