While Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge does charge a $15 daily resort fee, it covers a lot of hotel benefits. The lodge offers guest shuttle service on property. Your fee covers access to the swimming pool, hot tub, steam rooms, fitness center & saunas. It also includes scheduled fitness classes such as aquatics and yoga classes. Seasonal family-friendly activities such as snowshoeing, ice skating, hockey stick rental, cross country skis & toboggan rentals are included in the resort fee. Local & toll-free phone calls are complimentary, as well as many resort activities. If you arrive via train, or simply don’t want to drive, shuttle service to downtown Jasper is offered. Valet service for your golf clubs, bike or ski’s are included. For the literary among us, online access to newspapers & magazines is included. Finally, children’s and teen centers are available on site.
The property is pet-friendly with a $50 fee per room, per night. Thankfully, there is no size limit on dogs. If you don’t have a dog or can’t travel with your pet, Fairmont has a canine ambassador program. Check at the front desk to see if Stanley the Labrador Retriever is available for a stroll around the lake. The 45 minutes Lake Beauvert Loop trail is an easy 45 minute walk on a fairly flat, dirt trail. Great for hiking, biking or nature walks, the trail is not handicap accessible.
Rates start at $229 (Canadian) and vary per room type and season. Self parking is available for free at the lodge or $20 daily for valet parking.
If you are a Presidents Club Member (and why wouldn’t you be, membership is free) you’ll receive complimentary internet access. Additionally, each President’s Club member receives the first hour free of a mountain bike rental.
