Another great Travelzoo offer to let you know about! (Yes Travelzoo is an affiliate partner of Rewards Canada) This time it is for the Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, Autograph Collection which is less than an hour away from Calgary. The hotel is part of the Marriott family of hotels and is well known for its Nordic Spa which unfortunately at the time of posting is still closed however it will open for massages on June 19. There is no word yet on when the pools and sauna will open. Nonetheless if you are looking for an Alberta staycation this is a pretty good deal where you can go explore the Kananaskis area.
The deal has you purchase a 100% refundable voucher for stays at the hotel. Once you have the voucher you simply call the hotel to book your stay.
Here’s what is included:
- Accommodations in a Guest Room with two queens or one king bed:
- $185 per night … Sundays-Thursdays from June 15 – Sept. 30
- $249 per night … Fridays-Saturdays from Sept. 11-26
- Not available on: July 31; Aug. 1-2; Sept. 4-6
Note: The following amenities are temporarily closed as a
precautionary measure amid the COVID-19 pandemic: pool, fitness centre
and steam room, Kananaskis Nordic Spa, children’s play centre, Cedar
Room, Blacktail Bar, and Woody’s Pub & Patio
Note that taxes and parking fees are not included in the price and must be paid at the hotel. While these stays will not earn Marriott Bonvoy points you can use your Marriott co-brand American Express card to pay for the incidentals and taxes and earn 5 points for each dollar spent.
For comparison here are some screenshots of what the hotel is charging when you book direct with them (before taxes and fees):
Late June, one night on Sunday June 28:
And mid-week September, one night from the 15 to 16th
The voucher can in fact provide even more savings than what Travelzoo advertises as a 37% discount. Although I would believe the pricing on Marriott’s site will come down for September as I feel like they are speculating right now with the higher price and trying to maximize revenue per room at this time. Even if the price does fall this Travelzoo offer does seem to have that pricing beat.
