JASPER, Alta. – Pursuit has announced it will open the new Forest Park Hotel, a wilderness-inspired space located in the Canadian mountain town of Jasper. The opening will expand Pursuit’s portfolio of iconic experiences, attractions and accommodations within Jasper National Park.
Located at the edge of town, surrounded by stunning mountains and thick coniferous forests, the Forest Park Hotel will provide the ideal basecamp for visitors looking to immerse themselves in nature while staying close to the town’s vibrant downtown shopping and culinary offerings.
Connected to the former Sawridge Inn & Conference Centre, the two hotels will become one, creating a year-round, resort-style getaway. The new addition will open to guests this June.
“Jasper is an incredibly beautiful place, visited by guests from around the globe. The soon-to-be-completed Forest Park Hotel, featuring contemporary, nature-inspired design will provide guests with a relaxing escape when visiting such a beloved Canadian national park,” says Stu Back, Chief Operating Officer, Banff Jasper Collection by Pursuit.
The design of the new property, led by Canadian design firm DIAOLG and supported by Lawson Projects and Johnston Builders Ltd. of Alberta, will feature a fresh and modern palette integrating natural wood and stone accents throughout the space. Eighty of the new addition’s 88 rooms will include kitchenettes and all will include expanded patios that seamlessly bring the outdoors in.
