Resort Hotels in the Canadian Rockies
TO the motorist seeking a vacation that combines
recreation, comfort and convenience, in a scenic
setting unparalleled the world over, the Canadian
Rockies stand foremost in appeal.
From the Pacific Coast states, fine highways lead
into this magnificent territory through several central
points of entry. Once in the Rockies, the same excellent roads prevail and a vacation by motor is a succession of delightful thrills—whether one is en route or
stopping off at one of the famous Canadian Pacific
Resort Hotels or Bungalow Camps.
The Resort Hotels are four in number: Banff Springs
Hotel, Chateau Lake Louise, Emerald Lake Chalet and
the Palliser Hotel. While the latter is not strictly a
resort, its location in Calgary makes it a distinct part
of a complete motor tour of the Rockies. Each of these
hotels is strategically located to appeal to the motorist,
and each affords much opportunity for its guests' recreation and pleasure.
Banff Springs Hotel is a magnificent hostelry in the
heart of the Banff National Park, backed by three
splendid mountain ranges. The hot springs here are
among the most important on the American Continent.
Alpine climbing, swimming, golf on a new champion
ship course, tennis, fishing, boating, horseback riding
and hiking are among the diversions that Banff affords.
Chateau Lake Louise, on Lake Louise, Alberta, is
another hotel of metropolitan magnificence, facing an
exquisite Alpine lake in the same district as Banff.
Here may be found Alpine climbing with Swiss guides,
pony trips or walks to several points of interest, horseback riding, swimming, boating and fishing.
Emerald Lake Chalet, near Field, British Columbia,
is situated at the foot of Mt. Burgess in Yoho National
Park. Roads and trails from this charming Chalet hotel
lead to Burgess Pass, Yoho Valley and other neighboring scenic points, and boating and fishing may be enjoyed on Emerald Lake.
The Hotel Palliser, at Calgary, Alberta, is a handsome
hotel that caters to the motorist en route to or from
the Canadian Rockies. Calgary is known particularly
for its fine golf courses and its interesting scenic attractions, and a day or two spent here with the Palliser
as headquarters is always highly enjoyable.
In each of these Resort Hotels, Canadian Pacific
service, cuisine and standards assure complete enjoyment for every guest.
