Our crew spent a month here & it was really nice. Staff was good & rooms are nice. Very close to everything you need, booze & food. Double room suites worked out great as one of each roommate was in night shift & one in day shift. Only problem was the AC is only in the one room & the... More

Had 2 bedroom suite as travelling with co-worker - room was functional, had kitchenette with granite counter, TV's in both bedrooms and living area, clean, tidy, well maintained - not much to complain about. Room configuration was good as bedrooms are separated by living room - so very good privacy. Hotel is located in downtown area of Fort Mac. Starbucks... More

Excellent friendly service in this modern apartment style hotel. The service i received while staying at the Platinum was outstanding! Stephanie was professional and welcoming and the accommodations were clean and well stocked. Rates were very reasonable for Fort McMurray. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The best place in the area. Close to everything, free gym pass. Rooms are great and the staff couldn't be more helpful if I need anything at all. I have more then 15 of my staff staying here as well and they fell the same way. Thank you to the management and staff for making us feel at home.

I need Internet for work and to Skype with family while away..worst Internet I have ever seen..had to do everything from my phone!! If you need or want Internet don't stay here. Maids don't do a good job making the beds..just trow it together, a child could do a better job.

Once you find it, it's a good hotel. More apartment-like with a modern feel, it provides a good 'home away from home', with access to a basic kitchenette. I only stayed one night, but would stay again next time I'm there on business. It is in a strange kind of strip-mall, so even my local cab driver had trouble finding... More

This hotels internet is the slowest I've seen in my travels in a long time. I need to skype with my family and colleagues while I am out of the office. The internet speed was really slow to start with but the wifi was also cutting in and out every few minutes. I asked the front desk and they told... More

Trendy light fixtures and fancy new or updated rooms, but... the HVAC is so loud and walls so thin that it's difficult to sleep at night. Worst of all, the sitting area of my room smelled of week-old pee. Management listened sympathetically, but did nothing to resolve the problem.

I was on a business trip and stayed at the hotel with a collegue. As stated, its more of an apartment then a hotel, and the decor is quite modern. Check in was a breeze, and the staff very friendly. However, I had the second bedroom and the A/C was blowing hot air. The room temperature was 77. I called... More

Great Hotel. Rooms are fabulous and you never have the feeling you are actually in a hotel. Very clean and very upscale. If you are looking for a great place to stay in Ft Mac this is the one for you.
