Luxury Hotels in Lovely Alberta, Canada

Luxury Destinations: The provence of Alberta offers much more than just a rugged outdoor experience. It is also home to some of the newest and oldest luxury hotels, as well as exquisite cuisine, making it a first class destination for unique luxury travelers.

In a place this rich in culture and history, a stay at The Fairmont Banff Springs is a must. For over a hundred years, The Fairmont Banff Springs has been providing guests with unparalleled service and comfort. Modeled after a Scottish Baronial Castle, the Fairmont is perfectetly located in the midst of UNESCO World Heritage Site, Banff National Park. The property offers pristine views, championship golf, fine dining and the relaxation of a spa conveniently nearby.

Another luxurious option in the Canadian Rockies of Alberta is The Post Hotel, one of Banff National Park's remaining historic log lodges. Since the spring of 1942, The Post has been indulging guests under various names, but the heart and soul of the world-class destination has remained the same. The log building with the bright red tin roof has become a landmark tradition in the mountain region of Lake Louise and current brother owners Andre and George Schwarz have spent the past 25 years renovating and expanding the property to give guests a better way to enjoy good food, good wine and good company in a luxurious ski setting.

Not all of Alberta is immersed in the past. Le Germain Calgary is the newest luxury addition to Alberta, offering unrivaled home-away-from-home convenience and service. The 20-story hotel is comprised of 40 luxury condominium units above two separate buildings, housing a 143-room boutique hotel and office tower. A bridge that creates a breezeway in the center unites the buildings. In addition, the Le Germain Calgary offers energy saving benefits, including geothermal heating and cooling systems, high-performance glass with operable windows, large green roof areas with rainwater recovery for watering, and energy efficient mechanical and electrical systems in a unique and elegant setting.

To bring the flavor and feels of Alberta home, Alistair Barnes, the executive chef for Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts, credited with creating Alberta Rocky Mountain Cuisine has recently written a rich cookbook entitled Simple Treasures. The recipes within are sure to be as successful in your kitchen as in the breathtaking surroundings of Alberta.
