Stayed here for a conference at the University of Alberta.
Rooms are standard, well furnished and clean.
The staff was welcoming and helpful.
Good location on Whyte avenue, walking distance to University of Alberta (20 minutes) in nice weather, but the last day when I had my luggage, the desk offered complementary shuttle, which was fast and pleasant. I expect in the winter it would be welcome too.
There is a Second Cup coffee shop in the lobby (closes around 10) and the complementary continental breakfast in the 2nd floor dining room had excellent coffee, a good choice of breads, bagels etc, fruit, yogurt etc. HOwever, if you arrive late, there is no room service, but there are restaurants nearby.
I would stay again
