I was in Edmonton for a week for work and this hotel was close to where I needed to be. For the price, it is a good value. If you want a gorgeous fancy hotel with the convenience of a full kitchen you should expect to pay a lot more, it was clean and the bathroom was a fair size and everything you would need for the kitchen was there. We had the studio room with 2 beds in one main room. The kitchen had a full fridge, stove, microwave, toaster etc and a very small counter area, but was tidy and stocked. The counters were granite which was nice. The first room we had was crazy hot - 30 degrees - on a cold week in March and we couldn't figure out the controls, despite the instructions on the wall. We opened the window fully and it didnt cool the room, and all we got was a restless night from all the noise on the street below....cars, buses, sirens, homeless people yelling at each other. We spent another night in the heat and then asked the desk. The girl was very nice and said she would send someone that day while we were out to check. When we came back the window open fully and 2 fans working full blast, but the thermo still read 28. The note from maintenance was sort of silly as it just said to keep the windows open and the fans on as the heat is not fixed. Obviously. We couldnt do another night of heat, noise from the street, and now noisy floor fans whirring all night, so we asked to move. But the hotel was very full due to the Brier. However, the gal at the desk found us another room by moving around some incoming reservations and all was good.
Both rooms we were in had serious water damage on the walls and ceiling (17th floor rooms) but it didn't affect us. Good blackout curtains, quiet shower and toilet, LOTS of noise from the people upstairs walking around though.
I would recommend asking for a room on the side AWAY from Jasper Ave if possible as that is a really noisy street. Ask for a room AWAY from the elevator, through the set of fire doors on the right side. The doors keep out a lot of noise from the elevator and there are only 4 rooms on that side of the doors.
Elevators REALLY slow.
Beds REALLY comfy. Nice and clean white duvet, puffy feather mattress topper. Very nice and soft, one of the top hotel beds I have slept in and I travel extensively for work.
Pool is really small.... 4-5 strokes end to end and really just a play pool for kids. We didnt go in so i cant comment on cleanliness. The gym is not really a gym. Just a small glass room off the pool big enough for a treadmill, a bike and an elliptical. I didn't see any weights. But there are other gyms nearby, running in the river valley is close, a yoga studio across the street.
Second Cup is across the street, a Starbucks 5 blocks away and a Sobeys about 3 blocks away. But go to the Save on Foods in the same lot as the Starbucks..... More parking, really great store with fantastic deli.
The parkade is REALLY tight with pillars dividing the stalls and it's very low. When the sign says 6 foot clearance they mean it, so it's not the place to park your oversize truck or van. Our minivan fit on all parking levels no problem but if it didn't they do provide oversize parking nearby.
All in all a good value for the money. If you want the Ritz, pay the money.
I would stay there again.
Rooms AWAY from Jasoer Ave will be much much more quiet. Unless you like to hear buses, sirens, cars...
