JPL Seniors Fall Getaway
My dear school chums, friends for 60 years, went to Seniors Fall Getaway at JPL to celebrate our birthdays together. The staff bent over backwards to make our vacation fun, comfortable and very interesting. The food, rooms, spa, pool, workshops, hikes, were all first class! Beautiful weather and breathtaking scenery. Highly recommend this for travellers. Loved every minute of it.

I MUST return and so should you
We stayed last week at Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, it was simply incredible; the personnel was the most professional I´ve seen in a hotel, views stunning, they closed the ski resorts and I did not miss it! staff was great, helpful, informative, I can´t describe and thank this hotel enough for an unforgettable and wonderful vacation for ma and my family. The cocktails were out of this world, and if there was a minimal problem, they were there to help

Experience of a lifetime, staying in the Queen’s room in Outlook Cabin
Our stay in the Outlook Cabin was the highlight of a lifetime. Similar in character to the Sagamore Great Camp (the elegantly rustic Vanderbilt home in the Adirondacks) we were over the moon to be placed in the Queen’s room where both Queen Elizabeths had once stayed. Large yet cozy, with gorgeous wood floors & log walls, huge central double sided stone fireplace, supremely comfortable sturdy artisan handcrafted furniture and handsome art works, including a large soapstone bear, beautifully appointed bedrooms, kitchen & baths. Despite its elegance, we found it easy to settle in and be extremely comfortable throughout the cottage as if it was normal for us to hangout in such splendid surroundings. Housekeeping had even already prepared the fireplace with a perfectly laid fire (kindling, paper & wood stacked which lit easily with the touch of one match).

Left a bitter taste, after all, we drove through a blizzard going forty under the whole way, weary and frazzled, we arrive at midnight to only wonder where the front door was. Took some debating but it is the long, desolate looking part with the sprawling steps. Couldn't see any obvious sign. We check in, to be upgraded, which is great except I found someone elses gym shoe rental and socks left behind. Was this room cleaned before we arrived?
Excited and elated we have a deck with lounge chairs except there was a foot of snow not shoveled out. We drove through snow but Jasper had no new snow. We go down to grab the rest of the bags without being offered a trolley, which we fished out ourselves, I returned the other guest's shoes. Seeing as how industrious we looked when I asked for them to shovel off the deck when they could turned into an offer of a shovel. I said, no thank you, just tomorrow when they can. Apparently the conscerige was off at night and we didn't need them for check out as we already knew our way around. Front desk, not so great.
Great view! Once I could get to the railing the hot pool was steaming up from below, the lake was iced over and blanketed with snow, the trees deep, dark green, crawling over the land until they cannot grow any more to which giant craggs of rock jut out all around capped with white brilliance. Truly spectacular view to behold.
Inside the lodge is rustic opulence finished completely out of wood with a turn of the century log cabin feel except not homey and cozy. More like "this must be where Victorian Royalty lives" but it was cheapened by the left over Christmas decorations. I completely understand that this time of year the staff is just getting back from holiday but I was already sick of that time of year so it just added insult to the beautiful, sky-high open concept of the lodge.
The pool was every spooky, unimaginable fantasy I could dream of once I got past the icky drop down meat freezer part. Completely alone with the moon the steam curled on the surface of the just broken water. I felt elated. Not so much earlier that day when I was freaked out on by the pool boy for walking up to the glass to look out after our breakfast. MY SHOES WERE CLEAN!! Waited until almost closed to go in. The hot tub could use a cleaning, as there is a beach of sand forming in it.

The JPL is an Alberta jewel. The staff are friendly and go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. From Royal service to the Winter Activities center they made sure I had the right skis and was ready to take in the many trails the park has to offer. This time we had a wonderful waiter MC who served us in the coach area and then encouraged us to eat in the steak house the next night. He was wonderful. The two German girls who visited us as part of the turn down service were very entertaining. I have stayed at the JPL over a dozen times and am never disappointed. They are always eager to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
