Arriving at Calgary during the floods in June, we were unable to access our pre-booked hotel in Banff and eventually managed to find our way to Jasper, only to find that all the hotels were full (because of the flooding). Eventually, after a great deal of worry and searching, we were offered a room at the Glacier View Inn. We were so relieved to find somewhere to sleep, that I think we would have been happy anywhere, but the Glacier View exceeded our expectations in every way.
We were given a room with a magnificent view of the glacier. The room was very comfortable and nicely furnished and the staff were extremely helpful. The following day we were able to take a tour of the glacier direct from the hotel. There was a restaurant(serving lovely dinners) and a cafeteria serving breakfasts so, although the hotel is not close to a town, we wanted for nothing. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Glacier View Inn is a model of environmentally sensitive design, built to incorporate the pristine environment that it surrounds. There are 32 guest rooms - most have at least two queen beds and a loft. All are well appointed, with satellite TV, and direct dial phones. Many rooms offer spectacular views of surrounding mountains and glaciers but you should make sure to request a room with a view early as these are the first to go. Most rooms are well suited for families needing more space than a conventional hotel room, as well as traditional sized rooms for couples or individuals. Open April through October. ... more less
