Jasper Park Lodge or “JPL” is a historical standard of mountain lodge luxury. Owned and operated by the Fairmont Chain, it has undergone refurbishment and improvement over the years, all the while maintaining it’s charm.
The indoor/outdoor hot springs pool is open year round and the lower level of the lodge is a shopping arcade with funky little shops. In the summer you can take a paddle boat or canoe out on the lake, play a round of golf (though lookout for charging elk…it happens) and in the winter go skating or hop a shuttle to the local ski hill Marmot Basin.
There is a giant fire place in the main lodge where it is a perfect place to curl up and read a book or play a game with your kids. An old school family getway hotel.
