We were east bound from Vancouver heading to Edmonton. When we hit Jasper we thought we might stay for the night rather than drive on in darkness. We called for the last minute specials at a few hotels. Knowing this was the quiet time of year we expected some good results to our search. We called the Fairmont and the best rate for the night was almost 300 dollars! We asked if that was the best they could do and that was it. I thought it peculiar that they would rather have the room sit empty for the night. We then tried the Marmot. It was obvious from the onset they were looking for business. When I told Derek from Poland at the front desk that we were considering staying the night in Jasper if we could get something reasonable, you could see the gears go into motion. Derek hooked us up with a wonderful room with a king bed at better than their regular rate and much lower than the Fairmont. We needent search anymore. Derek wanted rooms filled and understood the opportunity of giving a bargain.
We proceeded to unpack and dropped a 100 bucks in the lounge on dinner and drinks, where we were served by a young fellow from England (sorry but the name escapes me). He and his girlfriend both worked at the hotel. She did painting and he did lounge and restauraunt service.
After that we retired to our room, which included a living room, seperate bedroom, full bathroom, microwave and fridge. In addition there were flat screen T.V's in both the bed room and the living room. The next morning we had the hot tub and pool all to ourselves before we left.
The room was clean, the pool was clean, the staff were great and the attitude for business brought us in the door. Bravo!
