What Alberta Fairmont is doing now that "The Bachelorette” shoot is cancelled

Mar 1 2021, 6:20 pm

One of Canada’s most beautiful luxury hotels is offering 50% off stays this spring, and it’s reportedly because The Bachelorette is no longer filming there.

Back in January, Daily Hive reported that the reality show had booked the entire hotel for nine weeks starting in February through to the end of April to shoot its 17th season. The hotel confirmed at the time it was busy with a private reservation.

But now that time block is available to book again on the hotel’s website — and at a steep discount.

“Escape the stresses of your daily routine with a well earned retreat to Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge,” the hotel says on its Alberta Resident’s Flash Sale page.

It entices Alberta locals to come visit by describing an idyllic winter getaway spent skiing at Marmot Basin, getting a massage at the hotel spa, and hiking around Lac Beauvert.

The show’s producers decided to cancel their Jasper Park Lodge shoot after Canada introduced stricter quarantine requirements in February, according to podcaster Reality Steve.

The pandemic has been particularly hard on the tourism sector by forcing layoffs or reduced hours for many hospitality staff, the hotel said in a statement to Daily Hive.

“We felt that the decision, while difficult, to accept a private booking was the best one for our employees. However, the private booking has now been cancelled and hotel reservations are once again open,” it said. “As we must always safeguard the privacy of our guests, details of the private booking will not be disclosed.”

Here’s what the resort looks like in winter:
