The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge is a unique, expansive property, embedded in the verdant, peaceful and serene wilderness landscape of Jasper National Park.
Keep in mind however, the lodge itself is quite different from other Fairmont properties. The rooms and suites are each in varying clusters of cabins, not in a unified building, and some are a considerable distance from the main lodge. The cabins are rustic, wooden and ever so musty, inherent to wood dwellings built so close to water (the property is surrounded by the sizable Lake Beauvert and the smaller Lake MIldred to the north). It retains the comforts you'd expect form a Fairmont however: luxurious beds, plush marble bathrooms, room service, among many other four star amenities (like check out the incredible, heated indoor/ outdoor pool!).
We drove up to Jasper on the astonishing Icefields Parkway from Lake Louise, a must if in the area, for a one-night Jasper stop-over before returning down the Parkway to Fairmont Banff Springs. Originally we booked a lake view junior suite w/ wood stove but upon check-in were upgraded to a one bedroom lake view suite with fireplace and jacuzzi.
The suite was nice, large, and comfortable; the wood burning fire place was particularly inviting, as we kept it lit most of the duration of our one night stay. The patio opened onto a vast and enchanting view of Lake Beauvert as well as the gentle, snow-capped surrounding Jasper mountains.
Service during our stay, however, was erratic. We encountered more than a few problems with several careless staff, but management fully addressed the problem and helped make an uneven stay, a very pleasant one.
We woke at dawn to walk around the perimeter of Lake Beauvert, a really terrific way to acquaint oneself with the abounding nature of the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, starting conveniently just outside our suite's patio. We were desperate to see some wild life before they moved on to less tourist heavy pastures at the break of day. Luckily for us, elk, geese, ducks and other fowl littered Lake Beauvert and Fairmont golf course and completed our memorable and tranquil morning wilderness exploration.
We ended our outing at the sleek and renovated spa in the main lodge for a warm and relaxing respite. The Fairmont Jasper's indoor / outdoor pool is also a must and is so adequately heated that one can even luxuriate in it amid the breathtakingly beautiful scenery, beneath a cold and crisp Jasper fall night sky.
The powerful, daunting and awe-inspiring Athabasca Falls are also a must see in this area, only a 15 or so minute drive down the Icefields Parkway from the lodge.
All in all we were pleased with our time at the Jasper Park Lodge; it is indeed a quaint lodge tucked deep in the Canadian Rockies aside the sleepy town of Jasper.
