We booked our Thanksgiving in the beautiful Jasper Alberta, travelling from Edmonton Alberta. Check in was easy and the hotel is set back a little from the main street. We booked a room with an attic style extra room. It was pretty compact but worked for my husband, daughter (10) and myself. There was an open fire in the room you could opt to use, getting the kindling from reception. The kitchen had everything you needed to eat basic meals in the room if you wished. Very clean and comfortable and a beautiful setting. The balcony on our room looked out to a central courtyard and unfortunately trees blocked mountain views but we are not in the room that much so no worries!
The pool was heated but could have done with being a little warmer! Once in though, it was clean and we had fun. The pool area is nice and relaxing with sunbeds. We could walk from our room to the pool in our swimsuits, perhaps check on this depending on where your room is situated.
Parking was in with the price of our room and there were plenty of spaces.
We walked into town 1-2 times per day, I would say it took 10 minutes maximum and with such scenery what a walk! We used the rec centre for some additional exercise to work off the turkey!
We drive to Pyramid Lake which was spectacular, had lunch at the restaurant there (amazing), we went to Athabasca Falls (10 mins drive) and had a nice hike there. We went to see Maligne Lake up the mountain (30 mns) and when we got there it was fog bound! We went mid morning and were told it would lift in a few hours. We decided to go see some other sites and on our way back down the mountain saw lots and lots of wildlife so the trip was worth it whether we saw the lake or not!!
We used the room kitchen to eat breakfast and didn't use the onsite restaurant so I cannot review those but it always seemed busy so that must mean it's pretty good! Seemed a lot of local people use it.
I would not say this is a 5 star resort, but it was exactly what we needed for our 3 night stay to see the beautiful rocky mountains. Plenty of space to put things and all the amenities you need if you want to eat in! We ate downtown, frequented Hortons and generally had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Wireless was free with our stay, get the password from reception. We also stay at the Best Western in Banff where basic breakfast (cereal, muffins, scrambled egg, sausage etc) is included. Recommend both!
