Astoria Hotel is a 35-room hotel conveniently located on 404 Connaught Drive, the main road in Jasper townsite,…a little hotel in the little town within the big Jasper National Park.
Besides the location, Astoria Hotel offers the convenience and delight of Papa George’s restaurant and the fun of the uncommonly named De’d Dog Bar and Grill on the premises.
While Astoria Hotel gets mixed reviews, I think it has to do with expectations. I think it is mostly because of the cost and the small size of the rooms.
If you are looking to spend all day in your hotel room, this is not the best place to do it. If you just want a basic place to stay after a day of Jasper National Park adventures, Astoria Hotel is plenty suitable – and a lot more comfortable than camping.
With the limited number of hotels within Jasper, the prices creep up. During the peak summer months, Astoria Hotel is a lot of money for what it is, but less than many other Jasper hotels. You’re paying for convenience.
If you’ve ever stayed in New York City, you know that supply and demand do a lot to hotel prices and that old buildings often mean small rooms. That’s what is going on in Jasper and at this and other hotels in the park. It is what it is. Personally, I don’t want to see any more hotels in the park because it would mean too many people would visit and make it crowded.
After a long day of hiking and sightseeing, you’ll surely be thankful to have a cozy bed to sleep in. I’ve stayed in plenty of charming hotels and I find them refreshing compared to the big hotel chains, but that’s just me.
