Nice room, quiet, clean. Stayed over a weekend. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the breakfast each morning and the wine and cheese one of the evenings. Very central location. We walked up and down Whyte St., to the university and even over the bridge to the downtown area.

Place was excellent, friendly staff, lots of places to go from the Hotel, rooms are beautiful and the food was very tasty. The services were well worth the stay. Parking was close and easy to access. Lots of great shopping close by and a vibrant night life. I loved my stay

Terrific hotel. Close to everything. Complimentary wine and cheese at check-in and a lovely breakfast buffet. Nice staff. We stayed only one night, but I would recommend it highly. Whyte Avenue is the most interesting shopping and restaurant strip in Edmonton. This hotel is in a great location.

I have stayed at this hotel many times and with the amenities, such as an excellent breakfast in a calm and pleasing room, this hotel is always my first choice. The car valet service is outstanding and takes away all the distress of dealing with unfamiliar parking spaces. The car is parked in a secure area.
