Jasper Lodging – Where to stay in Jasper
Jasper is a small and charming town. The village is compact and the advantage of staying here is that everything, shops as well as restaurants, is within walking distance.
We had a rental car because we love to be master of our own schedule but in theory, you wouldn’t even need a car.
Several organizations have group tours to visit the national park and there is a free ski shuttle to hit the slopes at Marmot Basin.
Our selection contains a few accommodations that are located a little outside the city. If that’s the case it’s clearly mentioned.
Fairmont Jasper park lodge (Premium comfortable a little outside downtown Jasper)
This lodge is located in Jasper National Park, across the Athabasca River, a little outside downtown Jasper.
Situated on the shores of Beauvert Lake, some of the rooms have lake views and in the winter guests can ice-skate on the lake.
While the lodge is outside of the town of Jasper, there are a number of on-site dining options, a bar, and shops. The hotel offers a shuttle to Marmot Basin as well as a shuttle to downtown.
Still, having your own car will give you more flexibility if you want to go out for dinner or breakfast.
It also has a range of spa facilities, including a hot tub, massage, steam room, and more. There is also a large outdoor swimming pool.
The lodge provides a range of kid’s entertainment options, including both indoor and outdoor play areas, board games and puzzles, children’s books and TV options, and a babysitting service.

Vacation homes in Jasper
These vacation homes are located in downtown Jasper. That puts them in a great location if you want to enjoy a dinner out or if you want to use the shuttle bus to the ski mountain.
As already said above, for your grocery shopping we recommend stopping in Hinton on the way to Jasper. Hinton is about a 60-minute drive from Jasper. It is located near the border of Jasper National Park and you will pass it if you arrive from Edmonton. There are several smaller grocery stores in Jasper but none as large as the Safeway and Walmart you have in Hinton. The latter will also be cheaper than the grocery stores in Jasper.

The Icefields Parkway connects Jasper with Banff and is probably the most scenic part of Jasper National Park.
Driving the parkway takes only a few hours but with so many scenic stops and hikes you need to reserve at least a day to enjoy its beauty.
When hiking some of the longer trails, which is a great way to avoid the crowds who mainly enjoy the vistas close to the parkway, you will need more than one day.

A car also widens the area of potential accommodation and is a great way to stay in the area without paying the price of a middle-of-town hotel. If you don’t mind driving a few extra kilometers you could for example consider staying in Hinton.
Where to stay in Jasper for ski
There are many hotels in and around Jasper that are great for skiing holidays.

Tips for choosing your accommodation in Jasper
There is such a range of accommodation available in Jasper that it is important to consider the best type of accommodation for you and your holidaying style.
When looking at the various accommodation options it is important to ask yourself a few important questions.
These include narrowing down your purpose for visiting Jasper – are you more interested in skiing or sightseeing? Amenities are also a key consideration – what facilities do you require in accommodation?
Do you prefer restaurants and bars or would you prefer a kitchen to cook your own meals?
Location is also important, especially in regards to whether you have access to a car or if walking/public transport is a necessity.
Considering these points when choosing accommodation will allow your final choice to be catered to your needs and preferences.
When booking accommodation, it is also important to consider timing.
A lot of accommodation, including hotels, campsites, and B&Bs, are fully booked months in advance, especially during peak season.
Therefore, it is important to book as far in advance as possible.
This is also important as prices will skyrocket as it becomes closer to your vacation dates due to limited availability.
The beautiful area of Jasper National Park is a popular vacation destination for good reason.
The picturesque scenery and surrounding nature is a draw for everyone from hiking and winter sports enthusiasts to nature lovers.
There is a great range of accommodation styles and types in the Jasper area and here we have collected some of the best places to stay in and around Jasper.
