“So called air conditioning”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

It was clean, smell through out the hotel was pleasant. Staff was friendly and the beds were amazingly comfortable. We called ahead to make sure air conditioning was working. All the reviews I read said they did not work. They told us yes but we brought a fan just in case. I am very happy we did although it was not enough. I could hear the air conditioning kick in but no cold air would come out. Our fan was running and at 4am my friend had a shower to try to cool down. The windows do not open because of the air conditioner. I managed to get on and off sleep till 8am. I began to feel clostaphobic and could not be in that room any longer so I showered and we left 2 hours before we expected. I would stay here again but not in the summer months. I have never been to a hotel that claims the air conditioning is working and the room stays at a constant 26 degrees. At the least let us be able to open the window. The lack of air conditioning was the only negative. I rated quality of sleep 1 due to the temperature of the room, not because of the bed. The bed was comfortable.

Location is very convenient for any event at Rexall Place. Downfall is that the restaurant only opens late so no breakfast. You must leave hotel to eat breakfast. Rooms are clean and staff are very helpful.

I've been staying here off & on for years on business. I'm a huge fan of their restaurant FLOW inside the hotel. The food is delicious, the staff is courteous, very friendly & the service is always great. I would certainly return. Thanks to all the staff and management at Flow for making my stays so pleasant!

quite, clean, comfy, centrally located. Although one computer was down when our guest checked in. The staff were professional and offered options to the guest checking in. They were cheerful throughout the stay and remembered the guest the next day. The cleaning staff were polite and efficient. The room was spacious and well stocked with the necessities.

Renovated and comfortable. If you are attending a function at Rexall Place or Expo Center it is a perfect location. Friday and Saturday nights can be loud due to the bar downstairs but the 7th floor is your best bet. There is no restaurants near worth spending your money. Save your guts and order in or drive somewhere else.

The room was clean, cool & quiet. The location is my only beef but it being at the junction of the Yellowhead and the Gretzky make it convenient as a central location. The staff was very helpful and friendly.
