The Hotel Selkirk is located on the side of the Fort Edmonton historical park in the river valley of Edmonton. I've visited Fort Edmonton many times with family and to attend functions in different buildings. My husband and I were looking for a nice night away without the cost of travelling outside the city, and we heard the Hotel Selkirk was accepting regular hotel guests. Being able to walk the grounds of Fort Edmonton on a warm evening was magical. We stayed on a Tuesday, so it was very quiet and we could hear some of the wildlife in the river valley; there is also a nice little park and fountain right across from the Hotel. The room itself was well appointed and clean, but sparse, true to the 1920's era it is supposed to reflect. The temperature was right, although I would have preferred being able to open a window. The night clerk wasn't at the desk when we arrived, but she showed up a minute or so after we rang the bell. She, and the other staff, were professional and friendly. We also enjoyed visiting the park the next day. I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a one night getaway that's a little different.
