Jasper Park Lodge
The conference is held at JPL and The JPL staff do their utmost to welcome our delegates to this extraordinary hotel. T o keep costs down for delegates, the ALC Planning Committee does its best to secure as many rooms as possible at the Fairmont Rate. This rate sells out first. You can also stay at the Lodge for a special reduced pre-conference and post-conference rate for Wednesday and Sunday nights; this rate does not include meals. Check with the Lodge for availability and room rates.
All rooms will have an iron, ironing board, hairdryer, mini-fridge, bottled water, kettle, teapot, coffee maker and makings for tea and coffee. If you want ice, dial 55 and a speedy staff member will deliver it to your door. They can also deliver liquor between 10:00 am and 1.00 am.
The room-service menu is in your room. Of course, you can also bring your own snacks and supplies.
For access to thousands of newspapers and magazines on-line, just connect to the wireless internet and go to pressreader.com or download the app.
If your room is miles away from the main lodge, dial 55 for a shuttle service. (But you meet some nice people on that stroll to the main lodge, and you work up an appetite!)
Tips for meals are included in the accommodation rate. Tips for porter and room service are at the discretion of each conference delegate.
Transportation into Town
Most conference attendees never leave the beauty of the Jasper Park Lodge grounds during the whole conference. If you do feel the need to visit Jasper townsite, it’s about a ten minute drive – but you might lose that great parking spot! A taxi into town costs about $25.00. There is usually also a conference shuttle between JPL and the townsite.
If you’re attending the conference alone, or just want to be sociable, watch out for the “Meet New Friends” tables. They will be specially marked with balloons.
All meals are included in the accommodation rate, not in the conference registration fee.
Babysitting services can be booked through the concierge. Details can be found here.
There are a number of options for those wanting to stay connected. Guest rooms have wireless Internet access if you are bringing your laptop, although signal strength is sometimes variable. Some rooms have wired access.
The price for Internet access for non-Le Club Accor / President's Club members is $13.95 plus tax per 24 hours from time of first connection. The charge will be billed to your room.
