Icefields Parkway Hotel Accommodation

The Glacier View Inn rooms occupy the third (top) floor of the Columbia Icefield Glacier Discovery Centre. The second floor of the Columbia Icefield Glacier Discovery Centre is occupied by a full dining room and cafeteria. The Front Desk, gift shop, Glacier Adventure Terminal and Jasper National Park Information Desk occupy the main floor. On the lower level, Parks Canada operates “The Glacier Gallery.” It is currently closed for an extensive renovation and due to reopen in Fall 2014. The Glacier Gallery will feature a new theatre, interactive interpretive displays and activities as well as up to date geological, environment, and historical information on the Columbia Icefields.

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, direct dial phones, and of course spectacular views of surrounding mountains and glaciers. There are rooms well suited for families needing more space than a conventional hotel room, as well as traditionally sized rooms for couples or individuals.
