I was pleasantly surprised at this hotel. The bed was amazing - like lying on clouds! And it was great to have a suite configuration with a couch, desk and kitchenette area. Having a mini fridge, microwave and stove top me not need to consume fast food the whole time. Location was great. Close to everything I needed.

We stayed 2 months in the Merit for Business in their extended stay kitchenettes. It was a great stay. Kitchenettes were well stocked and a plus when we had to stay so long. The Laundry service was also another great plus. All the staff were friendly and helpful. They treated us like family and made our time away from our... More

My husband and I stayed here last night, to celebrate our wedding anniversary, it was nothing short of amazing. The room exceeded beyond my expectations. It was clean, beautiful and super comfortable.. It was like we were staying at the Fairmont in Fort McMurray, but better!!! Couples one night getaway from the kids, I highly recommend staying here.

We enjoyed the hotel. A bit noisy but overall a very good hotel. Loved the division between beds and tv. Loved the kitchenette. Didn't have a chance to use pool or gym. Staff was excellent. Excellent value as well.

My first time in Fort McMurray - this hotel and their staff made it a very pleasant experience. Friendly staff, who are very helpful with information about Ft Mac and how to get around. Nice hotel with comfortable and quiet rooms. Pantry restaurant is right there with good food and attentive service.

Had a very comfortable stay in a king executive room. Lots of space with 2 TV's and a kitchenette. Bed was very comfortable. Bathroom a little on the small side, but water pressure was excellent and ample room in the shower. Alexander's pub/lounge on site was great. Excellent location if you are attending anything at Keyano College, as it's only... More
