Accommodation Jasper and Railway Station

We will be arriving in Jasper to travel on the Rocky Mountaineer to Vancouver at the beginning of July.

Is the station in the centre of Jasper and what accommodation would be good for a one night stopover.

Hello Maggie,

Yes, the rail station is on Connaught Drive and very central. If you go to Google maps you will see the rail lines and a flag for Hertz Rent a Car. That is very close, or at, the rail station when I look at the satellite view.

I will leave it to others to advise on overnight accommodation as we stayed out of town for a few days.

there is nothing in Jasper that isn't walkable to the train station with few exceptions. The Whistler Inn is across the street. If you google The Marmot where I normally stay the group that owns that hotel manages many of the Jasper hotels. Some are quite close but even the Marmot is a 6-7 block level walk to the train. The RM will also provide hotel transfers the morning of departure or a cabl is $6

Yes, both the Hertz and the National rental car agencies are in the train/bus station, which is right in downtown Jasper (it was the railway that created the town, so the downtown developed around the station). If you look at google maps' satellite view, you will see the station building adjacent to the tracks on the south side of Connaught Drive (across from the Whistlers Inn and kitty corner to the Visitor InfoCentre) - there are almost no other buildings on that side of the street, so it should stand out.

Jasper hotels are listed at www.jasper.travel and you can compare reviews between them here on TripAdvisor. There are a few hotels located in downtown Jasper - the Athabasca Hotel, the Astoria Hotel, Park Place Inn, and the Whistlers Inn; the Amethyst is just a couple of blocks from the station, and the rest of the in-town hotels are clustered at either end of town, about 1 km from the station - so probably not walkable with luggage (although some people do - as david stated, it's level, with paved sidewalks). Cabs are plentiful and it is not an expensive ride.

Private home accommodation is another option for accommodation - these are rooms or suites within a resident's home, at half the cost of a hotel stay (or less) - www.stayinjasper.com - however, most do not accept one-night reservations unless they happen to have only a one-night vacancy, so you would probably have to send a number of enquiries until you find one with a one-night vacancy. The ones that do readily accept one-night advance reservations tend to be at the more "basic" end of the scale.

Another option is to book upon arrival from the vacancy lists at the InfoCentre (one list for hotels, another for private home accommodation), however there is a long weekend July 1 to 4 for Canada Day (July 1); summer long weekends in Jasper tend to sell out, so if this is when you will be visiting, you should book as soon as possible.

If you haven't booked your accommodation look at.. Joe and Sheila Couture

www.visit-jasper.com

$70 per night

From the map it looks very close to the train station. We have booked it for June so hopefully it will have been a good choice.!!
