Here’s a post for readers in our home province of Alberta! The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge has launched a flash sale that offers 50% off the best flexible rate (aka daily rate) for residents of Alberta. Typically the ongoing Alberta resident’s rate offer provides 20 to 30% off at the three Canadian Rockies locations (Banff, Jasper, Lake Louise) This offer is available on all room types including the Luxury Signature Cabins. Simply book by March 7 for stays until April 30, 2021.
Here’s a snapshot of the rates for a one night stay on March 19:
As you can see they are true to their word with 50% off the daily rate and still significantly lower than the Stay Longer discount. The above rate is a weekend rate, on some weekdays that I searched rates started at $199 for the base room, $239 for cabins and $299.50 for a lakefront luxury suite. I was unable to find any AAA/CAA rates on a few nights that I searched but more than likely that rate would 20% off the daily rate. This flash sale rate does state that they will check residency at check-in so make sure you have your Alberta driver’s license or ID with you showing you live in the province. The cancellation policy isn’t too bad either – 3 days in advance is what is required.
To book this offer use promotion code PMK2 when you book via this link. Rewards Canada receives a commission on any completed stays booked via this link so we thank you in advance for choosing to help support us! I did find the rate shows up in searches without the promo code hence the rate snapshot above!.
Now Alberta does have restrictions in place and here is what the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge offers:
We look forward to welcoming you to Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. As of February 8th, select restaurants will be open for in-person dining and we will continue our expanded in room dining offering. The Spa is now open offering a simplified selection of traditional spa services such as massages, facials, and body experiences services. As per Government of Alberta mandated restrictions, our hotel pools, spa lounges and health club are temporarily closed. We have also modified our resort activities program to adhere to provincial guidelines and help you make the most of your stay. For more information about your stay, please review our safety information page.
This deal doesn’t end there however. Fairmont’s loyalty program ALL (Accor Live Limitless) is offering Double Points for all stays in North America (and Central America) until June 30 (you must book by March 31, 21 to get the double points) You have to register for the double points offer via this link (I would do it right away so that you don’t forget to do so in the future, plus you have to be registered prior to booking to earn the bonus points). And that’s not all! ALL is also awarding double elite status points and elite status nights for all stays completed in 2021.
The ALL Accor Live Limitless program awards 25 points per 10EUR spent on hotel stays at Fairmont Hotels (more for elite members) but the bonus will only double that base earn amount. If we take the above stay at $239 per night before taxes and fees you would be looking at earning around 785 or so points with the bonus. When you redeem points with the program they are redeemed at a flat rate of 2,000 points = 40EUR credit towards your bill so those 785 points earned equate to around C$23. A 10% return isn’t bad and that’s not even taking into account the double status points and nights that will also be awarded.
