“Wonderful Boutique Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for a unique place to stay, I highly recommend this hotel. The rooms are well appointed and come equipped with a fire place. The staff is excellent and extremely accommodating. The food at Madison's grill, attached to the hotel, is also excellent.
They serve an a la carte breakfast and each day a wine and cheese sampler is sent to your room. If you are a gym person, they don't have much here, but there is a World Health Club and the YMCA within a short walking distance.
It is located in the heart of downtown and would be great for both business and personal guests.

The Union Bank Inn is your best choice for business or pleasure accommodation in a town known for the sameness of chain stores and hotels. This boutique hotel is located in a red-brick historic building right in the middle of the action in downtown Edmonton. You will be within walking distance of all the amenities offered - the Citadel Theatre, the Art Gallery of Alberta, the Winspear, the casino, downtown shopping and soon, the new downtown arena. Choose from heritage style rooms to contemporary, each with comfy beds and fabulous individual style. For you dining pleasure, visit Madison's Grill downstairs. They work with local produce featured in an ever changing menu. This restaurant offers some of the best dining in town. I book guests to the city at this hotel whenever possible.

Staying here again while attending a concert in Edmonton. This is the only hotel we stay in while in Edmonton. Its a boutique hotel that is located in a historical building that has outstanding service and very comfortable rooms. They cost a bit more but we feel it is worth it and the included breakfast in Madison's Grill is amazing (no skimpy breakfast - a la carte with great selections).

Room Tip: You can choose from one of the heritage rooms (very romantic) or a contemporary room which is more b...

The Union Bank Inn has a fabulous location, although the rooms do not generally have notable views. Very helpful desk and cleaning staff. Good restaurant, but service can be eccentric. Rooms are well appointed and plenty big enough.

Stayed here last summer with my husband. Actually used a Groupon to do so, for the second time in prob 18 mos or so. We live here in the city. We had such a great time the first stay we thought "Heck yes!" for a second stay.

Beds = comfortable. Yes really! Lovely plush comforters. Linens are higher-end as well. There's a fireplace in the rooms. We've stayed in the heritage wing ("classic decor") and in the executive ("modern decor") and both are equally well-equipped.

UNFORTUNATELY I would not recommend Madison's for anything but an included breakfast as the prices sadly don't justify the meals in both portion and taste. There are ten trillion other restaurants within walking distance of Union Bank that are much better!

I expected much more from this hotel based on the pictures on the website. It is very basic stuff. I liked the location and I enjoyed the gas fireplace. The front end staff very nice and the wine and cheese/grapes that were waiting for us when we checked in was a really nice surprise... But the room was very plain, the bedding and bed very used (needs to be updated badly), the description says "down bedding" but it is so thin it couldn't really be considered "down bedding" I think most of the warmth came from the duvet cover. The bed also was old and needed to be replaced. Also for the price I expect the towels to be a little more luxurious, the bath towel was very small and rough.... I don't think I will spend the money to stay here again.

Room Tip: I would ask about the bedding/beds...... the pictures on the website must be their best rooms as our...

Stayed Jan 30 and 31st. The front desk staff was super friendly!
Myself and a collegue stayed here and dined at the Madison Grill attached to the Hotel: breakfasts were included (fantastic- with great options). Top class! We were in a rush to leave our last morning and a waitress packed us a quick breakfast to go- how sweet.

The rooms were very comfortable. They left a snack for us everyday: wine, cheese, grapes and saltines in our room- what a great touch! Looking foward to coming back here for future trips. In the past I was always so hesitant to stay here, as I typically choose the Holiday Inn, Matrix, Westin, etc. But my trip was so memorable I would not hesitate to go back!

It is one of the one of those places you want to take special people for a memorable experience!
