“Close to the hospital”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

It was great that this hotel was close to the hospital because it was our main criteria. However I have two negative things to say about this one bedroom unit.

The sofa bed is terrible and I felt every spring. You can tell as soon as u touch the mattress with your hand.
Also the housekeeping staff starts yelling "housekeeping" and rattling your door at 8:30am.

Room Tip: The room had a musty smell!

This hotel is excellent. It is clean and affordable. The rooms are nice size. The bed and pull out coach are comfortable. I would recommend this hotel. The front desk staff are friendly and helpful.

Only challenge is the slow elevator.

We stayed at the Campus Tower Hotel in July 2011 and July 2012. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The room had a stove top, a microwave, a small fridge and sink in the kitchenette. Everything was clean and in working order. The free wifi was really handy for myself and my family to get on all of our gadgets. We were attending a camp at U of A, so it was perfectly situated for access to the pool. The rooms are just large enough - we added a cot with no trouble - and had lots of storage for our various swimming things. I would stay here over and over. The only issue one of my family members had was the slowness of the elevators.

Room Tip: The rooms on the other side from the hospital might be quieter, but not a big deal. The one bedroom...

For us it was a good choice. The room was clean and well furnished. The kitchenette was very helpfull for us having breakfast before leaving early in the morning. We were two friends coming in Edmonton to the french Choralies Edmonton 2012 (choir festival) for a week. We found many accomodation around like Booster Juice, Earl's and others. We appreciate our week.

We were pleasantly surprised with the size and cleanliness of the rooms. The room had a separate kitchenette with a sink, small fridge, microwave, and cook top. Main area of the room has a dining table along with a couch and love seat. Bathroom room was a nice size and clean. Bedroom wasn't overly large but had a large closet and very comfortable bed. My only complaint, and it isn't much of one, is the pillows were too big. Felt like my head was way off the bed. Definitely not something that would deter me from coming back.

Exercise room has plenty of equipment and was very clean. Location is right by the campus and hospital. Plenty of great eating very close as well.

For us it was a good place to stay because it was close to the hospital and all amenities were within walking distance. The rooms were functional and comfortable and the kitchenette was a bonus.

The staff were great. But this is an old student apartment building refurbished into a hotel. There are no hotel amenities - like food or recreation - and the rooms are averagely furnished and equipped. Plus, the room rates are crazy. Even the area is not that nice - it's a hike to Whyte Avenue and even farther to downtown. If you're visiting the hospital or the U of A, then the location is fine but otherwise stay elsewhere.
