I made it to this hotel randomly. After learning my sister company replaced both the fireplaces in the lobby and dining area of Whistlers Inn, I thought I would just go check it out! I was so impressed with the massive fireplace that’s in their dining room! When we stayed here, there was something going on as it was completely full and constantly busy so I didn’t find the time to talk to the staff here.
The room we got was very standard and tucked away as they were trying to accommodate teams at the hotel to be together. It’s got it’s old charm and character, so it was nice!
We were able to get our little day bag in the room with spare space, so this room does work! It definitely work work if you’ve got children or anything like that! The only thing that I found tricky was the step up to the bathroom. It’s definitely a tripping hazard for me.
There really wasn’t much to the room, but it’s got all you need! It was just the 2 of us and after a day of travel with a hike and dinner, we came back to crash. The next morning, we got showered, ate, and started the journey back home. The hotel and the room did it’s job, we did ours!
It was a very pleasant stay! There isn’t a lot of parking spots on the property, but we were able to get street parking very close by! So, we lucked out there. It was a cozy and fantastic stay at the Whistlers Inn!
Every once in awhile, I look to book a stay at the luxurious Lake Louise Resort Hotel, the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and when I’m splurging here, I treat us to Fairmont Gold Lakeview Room as I really love sitting by the window watching the frozen lake, to see the skaters. We got upgraded to their Fairmont Gold Junior Suite though! How amazing is that!?
Once you get into the room, there’s a bit of a foyer area, and to the side is the bathroom. The room is quite spacious and the bed is really amazing.
The bathroom is really large, it’s got both the tub and walk in shower. The space here is extremely spacious and very luxurious.
The nice thing is, you even get a little water closet (toilet area) with a separate door. Sometimes I love it and when in the middle of the night I have to use the bathroom, I hate it! But overall it’s a concept I like for a hotel room!
The room itself is also large, with a lot of desk and counter space! There’s seating area, desk space, and space all around!
Overall, I love it here. It’s my favourite modern hotel in the Rocky Mountains that I’ve stayed at so far. The service is always top notch, food wise, if I dare say.. nothing has come comparable! The Fairmont Gold breakfast buffet is the best here as well! If you’re doing an afternoon tea, this is the location I would recommend it!

I love going to Jasper. I love going there unprepared… I seem to always do that. I’d be the idiot walking around in a dress and sandals while it’s snowing. It hasn’t failed me and I guess I just won’t learn that lesson. Now with that said, I was freezing and wanted to warm up in a cafe, and we stumbled into The Other Paw Bakery and Cafe where the lineup was massive, but they move the line fast! It helped as no one was in line for ice cream!
I ordered their Latte and enjoyed it thoroughly. We sat at a table near the back where it wasn’t as busy and enjoyed our breakfast/lunch/snack there! The latte was spectacular, and the coffee flavour was really amazing!
I love pineapple and and anything Hawaiian or tropical, so I had to get their Aloha Muffin. I’m not even too sure what’s in it, and I didn’t really care. I know this muffin was super moist and soft, fresh and delicious! It was still warm! I was in love with this muffin!
What my hubby had was a Chai Tea Latte, he’s more the type that likes to change it more than I do!! Weirdly, I introduced him to Chai.. The chai here was tasty and spicy, creamy and hot! Just the way I liked it. But, I can’t have my latte and his chai. I’d be asking to stop at the side of the road every hour if so!
He decided he would eat Jalapeno Pizza Pretzel, which wasn’t surprising to me. It totally sounded like what he would order! They heated it up for him and he really enjoyed his quiet time with his order. It wasn’t over spicy or anything, this place knows how to make amazing food and drinks!
Overall, this place is amazing. I even recommended it to friends when I hear people are going to Jasper. I love this place and it’s good for any time of day. We even bought a loaf of bread on the way home and it made excellent sandwiches for lunch!
