I visited Fort McMurray a few times this year on business during 2016 and stayed at Merit at least 3 times this year. I noticed that the staff at this hotel is trained, friendly, efficient & caring. The rooms are clean, well lit and well heated. What I liked most was the location since this is downtown Ft. McMurray and...

The Best Place to be in Fort McMurray. A home away from home. The room is a reflection of your home, clean, impressive and huge. The staff has excellent service, well informed and respectful. The underground parking makes you sleep soundly, guaranteeing your car's safety.

We really enjoyed our stay. Nice helpful personal. To me, its all about cleanliness and comfortable furnishings. Suite came with two cozy bathrobes and a bottle of Champagne. Starbucks is is within walking distance. You can park your car in the winter in the garage underneath the hotel.

Multiple business trips found this hotel to be clean, quiet, and close to all amenities downtown. On all my visits, Ramil proved to be a consummate professional in all his dealings with me, and proved himself to be an awesome representative of this Hotel. On the negative side, the hotel seems a bit dated, and the continental breakfast is mediocre....

A bit off the main strip which was really nice. Room great and staff were helpful and the building quiet even though reno's were underway. Only challenge was finding parking. Teeny attached lots front and back so many guest vehicles lining the streets. Settled in a back alley and prayed not to be towed for the night.

Room was nice (stayed in an "extended stay" suite with kitchenette and king bed). Nice location, with good restaurants nearby. Only thing I didn't like about my stay was the abysmal continental breakfast. It was just awful. Only ate there on my first morning, went out for breakfast elsewhere the next day instead.
