The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge holds an iconic status amongst hotels in Jasper National Park. This upscale resort hotel has been an institution since the early days.
Starting with 8 cabins in 1922, the resort’s expansion over the years means it can today claim 446 rooms, an award winning world-class golf course, and a whole lot of activities and amenities on the grounds. I think the location (on Lac Beauvert) and facilities are why the prices are so high. If you click the link above to see the reviews, a lot of people like the Lodge, but some complain it is overpriced.
During the summer, the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge is the park’s most expensive hotel. During winter ski season, you can enjoy Jasper’s most exclusive hotel at much lower rates – and take a free shuttle to Marmot Basin Ski Area to boot.
If Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge doesn’t fit into your travel budget (as it doesn’t mine), there are plenty of other Jasper National Park hotels to chose from. Nearby Hinton, Alberta, a short drive from the eastern border of Jasper also has several hotels at reasonable prices.
