Just returned from a week in the Canadian Rockies and stayed at all three Fairmont properties. Let's get the obvious issue out of the way first: yes, they are ridiculously priced. If one is going to dwell on price, may I suggest that you stay elsewhere or camp. The reason to stay at these properties is for their historic value and unrivaled locations. That said, this is probably the least spectacular of the properties. Don't book a room online. Speak to someone who can explain the differences between the rooms, their setting and cost. Our party booked rooms at two different price levels (a 50% difference). Both were comfortable and clean. The pricier rooms were larger with a small sitting area and closer to the lake (but with no view). The units are spread out (no high rises here). You may not find parking near your room, but at least they don't hit you for a $30 a day parking fee(as in Lake Louise and Banff). We drove around and around looking for the room and parking, only to realize afterwards that we were but a two minute walk from the main lodge. There is no air conditioning here, and on a hot day the rooms can heat up. But who is going to spend the day in their room in Jasper? At night, we slept comfortably with the windows open. An important tip here: join the Fairmont President's club. It costs nothing to join and you will not have to go check in. Your key and a map will be waiting for you curbside as you drive up to the main lodge. Staff was mostly helpful and friendly, with the noticeable exception of one server at breakfast who appeared uninterested and overwhelmed when we ordered breakfast a la carte instead of partaking in the buffet. At $25 a head, the buffet is a waste unless you are a big eater. It was actually cheaper to order coffee, bacon and eggs and toast a la carte - assuming you are willing to wait to get get it. Dinner was expensive, but actually quite good. The menus here hightlight items that are "organic, local and sustainable." The venison was excellent and the tenderest I have ever eaten, albeit not very gamey. The BC salmon was also well prepared. All the Fairmont properties seemed to try hard to offer healthy meals - a pleasant surprise. One complaint: the concierge had no clue what restaurants were available at their Lake Louise property. In any event, there is a dining reservation desk with more knowledgeable personnel, so no real harm done. Overall, the cosiest of the three properties.

We had a group of 20 (all family) and stayed at Milligan Manor. It is a beautiful home on the golf course with 8 bedrooms - 4 on each wing. Six rooms have kings, and 2 have 2 doubles. Rooms were large and comfortable. Beds were awesome! Small kitchen with a refigerator to store drinks, etc. We had the catering department prepare dinner the first night at the house, and it was top notch! Lots to do for the kids. Recommend renting bikes for the entire stay. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Good food.

Fortunately for us, the guests before us purchased portable air conditioners for each room! Made it very comfortable.

Beautiful place and very accommodating for our large crowd, though there was more than one mix up on reserved activities. Double check all plans made through concierge just in case.

What a lovely place this is. On our very short list of places we would return to. I would call it a cross between a National Park Lodge and a top of the line resort. The combination of low-key with elegant finish perfectly fit the bill for us. Completely unlike the high rise Fairmonts in Banff (think "The Shining") or Lake Louise (think Bellagio - Las Vegas - crossed with San Quentin). The Jasper property is a perfect place to relax and worth every penny. The one drawback is the service which suffers from the same amateurishness that plagues most summer resorts with a need for large numbers of temp employees.

We stayed 3 nights at JPL on business. This was the third year in a row and most likely the last. The beds in the Fairmont rooms are extremely hard and uncomfortable. To eat your meals there is also very expensive; never mind the accommodation. The scenery, of course, is outstanding with the mountains, lakes and wildlife right close by. Time to try somewhere else in Jasper.

Transferred to our Fairmont Room (standard room) by golf cart - standard for all guests! The Fairmont JPL is set in fantastic grounds, very well maintained. When arriving at out room we were greeted with a double bed, when we had asked for two separate beds (mother and 17 year old son!). Luckily, we were then upgraded to a Deluxe Room with Sitting Area (with two double beds!). This had a lake view (superb) and had recently been refurbished, with a brand new bathroom suite. On the first night we sampled in-room dining, which could not have been more exquisite. Yes, it's expensive - but then that's the Fairmont brand. Based on our experience, you truly get what you pay for.
