Arriving from out of town, we stayed here 2 nights while attending a friend's wedding. Hotel guests have free park admission during the day and can enjoy the quietness of it in the evening for a stroll down the pioneer ear streets. Very comfortable room; quiet hallways; very good nights' sleep. Room was spotless and inviting. Front desk staff was... More

We stayed at the Selkirk Hotel in Fort Edmonton Park as we were attending the wedding of a niece. It was an excellent choice. Very quiet. Very close to the Blatchford Hanger, where the wedding was held. The king size bed was very comfortable.

2nd time coming here off season and it is just lovely. We were treated very well and the food was fantastic. The buildings were closed but there is still great places to walk. The animals and the tram were getting ready for the summer season. Lots of things to do once open. Pricey though.

We stayed here for the Valentine's Day 2015 Couples Weekend. We had such an AMAZING time we are currently trying to plan a wedding here. The hotel is quaint, and it is beautifully set in the River Valley. The rooms are vintage, with a modern take as plumbing is a necessity. There is no tv which we love because connecting... More

An opportunity to stay in the heart of Edmonton at the living museum Fort Edmonton in a 1920's themed Hotel was a no brainer given the inexpensive rate and park passes included. It exceeded my expectations. The rooms while not authentic do pay a fair tribute to the time period it honours. They do lack T.V.s but not to worry... More

We stumbled upon Hotel Selkirk on a trip through Western Canada and boy what a treat. We arrive at Fort Edmonton around 7, after the park had closed. Getting in was a little foreign, the park is fully gated. Once you find the gate you'll need to buzz the front desk so the can let you in. Anyway entering the... More

A reproduction of the original Selkirk which burnt down in 1962, so the plaque says, and a good job has been made of it. The 20's theme is superb, however it lacks! No TV in rooms, why? Because there was no TV in the 20's, neither was there wifi, aircon, central heating, and probably not hot running water, lame excuse!... More

We arrived at the hotel coming in the back road to Fort Edmonton. It felt like we were breaking in it was such a weird feeling to be there after hours. Most of the cars in the parking lot were gone and we just scooted past everyone and drove to the hotel via a service entrance. The staff were very... More
