Canada Rail Hotel Information

Accommodations for your dream vacation.

Hotel Categories & Levels of Service.

Every tour by Canada Rail Vacations includes your choice of four different levels of accommodation: Popular, Superior, Deluxe and Premium Hotels. Each hotel has been carefully selected to ensure the highest level of comfort and service. Our base level of hotels or “Popular hotels” typically include standard room types in major hotel chains such as Marriott, Delta, and Sheraton properties. Our high end hotel options, or “Premium hotels” include the Gold Floor at all Fairmont hotels across Canada where available, otherwise known as the Grand Railway Hotels. See below for more information.

Popular

Popular Hotels are moderately priced for the value-conscious guest and offer clean, comfortable rooms with some amenities.

Superior

Superior Hotels provide you with upgraded rooms at Popular Hotels or base-level rooms at some of our 4-star properties.

Deluxe

Deluxe Hotels offer a guarantee of either a larger room or a spectacular view at one of the Superior Hotels, or at a 4.5-star hotel.

Premium

Premium Hotels offer the Gold Floor at Fairmont Hotels or the equivalent at other 4.5 to 5-star properties.

You may also consider customizing your package by adding or subtracting hotel nights in each destination.

Hotel selections are made with the consideration of rail station transfers as the first priority in towns or cities which include the Rocky Mountaineer train arriving or departing for your convenience. We will always do our best to ensure that you are provided with the best available, and most convenient hotel in order to make your vacation flow smoothly. Hotel selection is, however, subject to availability at the time of booking. Please let us know if you have any particular hotel preferences prior to booking and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

Grand Railway Hotels

When construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway was completed in 1885, the country officially became accessible to the masses. With Canada no longer separated by the Canadian Rockies, travel from coast to coast now became a possibility. In order to attract tourism to Canada, the Grand Railway Hotels were built as luxurious, castle-like destinations located along the rail lines throughout the country. Of the Grand Railway Hotels that remain today, the majority of them fall under the Fairmont brand with the most impressive of the bunch being the Fairmont Banff Springs, and Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise due to their remote locations within the Rocky Mountains.
