This is a 3rd return visit for us. The 2 previous visits were 4-5 years ago. We had enjoyed before and specifically looked up the Metterra for this 2 night trip. Check out the CHOICES special offer - 3 different choices if you stay 2 nights in a row during a specific portion of the week. Originally we hoped to stay 2 nights and get the third free - really good deal and would make it worth it to pay the higher hotel price, especially for Thur night ( compared to Fri ). The 50% off a second room is really fab. In the end, we took the room upgrade, the lowest benefit in my opinion.
The good: great location, very good breakfast, love the wine and cheese (every day except Sunday I think). The bathroom products are really lovely. The room décor is nice.
The not-as-good: I was disappointed on this visit by a few things. We stayed in room #409, a water room. My husband said the jetted tub didn't really seem to do anything. This side of the building has the building air conditioner / air exchange unit outside (not sure what it is called). We didn't notice it right away when we checked in. It wasn't a big problem and the constant white noise masked street noise, so perhaps that was actually better for us. The drapes didn't close, so we asked for some paper clips from the front desk for our second morning. This helped but this room gets a lot of light in the morning, even when the drapes are closed. The bed is soft and we prefer a firm bed. They could use a soap dish in the bathroom by the sink. Instead I put a face towel down to keep the counter from being a mess.
Probably the soft beds will have us looking elsewhere next time we come to Edmonton. We should ask if some rooms have firm beds ( we did not ).
