HISTORY

Hotel Beginnings 

Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge luxury hotel has a firmly embedded place in the history of tourism in the Canadian Rockies. Its legacy began in 1915, in association with the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. Originally called “Tent City,” it consisted of ten large luxury tents located on the shores of Lac Beauvert, each with wooden floors and walls. There was also a main dining tent that turned into a social area in the evening for guests to play cards and visit.
