Perfect anniversary celebration with friends
From the moment we booked our 2-night stay, we immediately felt welcomed. From the welcome email and the texts from Concierge, the warm greeting from valet parking, the fantastic service from Gaurav at the Front Desk, it was a beautiful getaway for us. Gaurav had noted that we were originally booked into a room with 2 double beds (only room available when I booked), and was kind enough to upgrade us to a king cabin for us to celebrate our 26th wedding anniversary! Dinner at Orso was a wonderful experience - the 3-course menu, along with wine pairings was fantastic. The dining room was very busy and our entree came out a bit cold, but overall, the food was delicious. Thanks Tim for the cocktail and food recommendations! Henry, who drove us from our friend's cabin after a late celebratory evening, was very charming and engaging. He navigated the resort grounds expertly, and safely delivered us to our cabin. A wonderful trip which we will repeat soon!
Symphony Under the Stars.
Well worth it! That’s all I should write but I’ll expand. We love the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and are subscribers. It’s been 18 months since we’ve been to see them due to the pandemic. This seemed like a great way to get away and enjoy the musicians and their music. The setting is fantastic, the two dinners were beyond our expectations. The JPL is an older property but it’s is a stunning location and they’ve managed to maintain the rustic feel. Our room was decent, I loved the glimpses of the past (the boot trays set in cement, fir ceiling trim, tiny bathroom and aluminium pull up window screens). We enjoyed our nightcaps on the banks of Lac Beauvert with the moon as our only light. A truly magnificent setting. Don’t let any bad reviews by those who are used a more luxurious stay sway your decision. It’s well worth it. Oh and have the best Caesar in the Great Hall. You’ll thank me for it.

Nice place for a getaway
We stayed for a few night on a quick getaway. Very nice location being on the lake. The rooms are spread amongst a number of buildings. Depending on the type of room you book you could be close or far from the main building. The building we were in had been built many years ago but the rooms were modern. We were on the second floor so we had a large balcony with a couple of chairs. We only ate at the main floor lounge so not sure about the other dining. Our only complaint was that the pool was not really warm enough to enjoy with the colder temperatures. We went at night when it was about -8 C and we had to find a warm water outlet to stand over to stay warm. Other people we spoke to had the same opinion that the water needed to be warmer for just visiting in the pool. We did not try the hot tub since there were too many people in it for covid times. The pool really needed to be warmer for people not wanting to swim laps. Overall it was a beautiful setting.
My sister and I checked in for a girls weekend over thanksgiving, we had exceptional service at every turn, but especially Chris is the gastropub and Megan in the spa. Our room had a fireplace, which I assume was an upgrade, because I hadn’t booked it, but what a wonderful experience to have a warm fire after a cool October day! They even brought us a scrabble game to top off our evening!
When we checked in, we were tired and exhausted from our trip so it was a pleasure to receive a friendly and warm welcome from Flora at the front desk. She immediately acknowledged and thanked us for our ALL membership and stated we were upgraded to a premium deluxe accommodation. She explained the amenities available to us, the restaurants that were serving meals, the boat rentals, the spa and even explained where our accommodation was on the map and how to work the gate. The first impression I had of the grounds was that it was very well-maintained and beautifully landscaped. The property itself is situated wherein it had a 360 degree view of nature and spectacular scenery. Cabin #609 was within walking distance to the lodge and was a few feet from the lake and the boathouse. Inside, the cabin had a hint of rustic elegance and was very comfortable and cozy. The bed was so heavenly and the pillows perfect that we had the most relaxing sleep of our entire vacation at the Fairmont Jasper. Dinner at the Great Hall was stress-free. We appreciate the tables being far apart and that vaccination status was checked to keep everyone safe. The ambiance was casual, the service was above par and the food was delicious. The Blackened Salmon and the Steak Frites we had were cooked perfectly. Live music was a nice touch. My only regret - I wished we stayed longer. My husband, on the other hand, wished he had scheduled a tee time at the beautiful golf course. Having said that, we'll definitely return and hopefully soon. Thanks Fairmont Jasper and your staff for making our visit special.
