“Excellent Value!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Stayed for a single evening at the Matrix - I was impressed at the modern decor, accommodating customer service, and great value especially considering the location and the fact that I wasn't dinged by stupid additional costs. Wifi, breakfast, and parking are all included in the price of the room, which was infinitely reasonable for only $155 + tax. Dinner at the attached restaurant was also top-notch. Recommended!

I was introduced to this hotel by a friend and he proved he's a good one. From smiling happy greetings at the front desk, a great breakfast, an awesome bed and quiet rooms this place is a pleasure. I am very picky about pillows and these ones are good. They didn't collapse and held my head up all night. If you've ever slept on bad pillows you'll know what I'm talking about. The hotel close to everything being right downtown and I have to say I didn't hear a car, a siren, a honk or any evidence that I was in the middle of a city. Well done and thanks for a great stay!!

Loved this hotel- had a "W" feel with great ambience. Customer service was excellent from top to bottom. Great breakfast and 24 hour expresso machine. Free happy hour drinks as well. Exercise room was weak, but otherwise a really great hotel.

The good:The hotel lobby was nice and the breakfast was great.
The bad: the room was pretty small but what was worse was the bathroom was located right beside the bed with only a light sliding door separating the two rooms. You could hear the other person combing their hair and whatever else they were doing in there - not the atmosphere for a romantic weekend away. Also the TV was really difficult to figure out. We attempted at one point but gave up. Also there's nothing really that cool or trendy to justify the price.

I stayed here for a week for business. Happy with everything. My king delux room is spacious and quiet on the 15th floor. Bedding is very clean. Wifi is superfast. Breafast included, a variety of choices. Front desk staff are very friendly and helpful, always greet you with a warm smile. They have this great program - if you do require room cleaning services, they give you a $5/night credit towards your mini bar consumption. I highly recommend Matrix if you are looking for a hotel in Edmonton downtown.

I was very impressed with this hotel during my two night stay in November. Reasonable rate, great room and the inclusions were second to none! Inclusions: breakfast, wifi, complimentary wine reception with light snacks. For 159$ for a king room the value was amazing. The breakfast was awesome- they provided all the regular toasts , cereals, fruits and also sausages, some quiche or tart like dish, potatoes, granola yogurt and more. The wine reception exceeded my expectation too! Four different wines to your hearts delight and some light snacks cheese, grapes, dips, pita chips… very nice way to wind down your day. The guestroom was bright clean and modern- loved the bathroom amenities, comfortable bed. They have a very cool green initiative; if you pass on housekeeping you receive a 5$ credit towards your mini bar (which is also reasonably priced! There is a Starbucks attached to the hotel and it is in a great location and the hotel staff could not be more friendly- they were all super helpful. I would highly recommend and will stay here for each Edmonton visit- what more could a girl possibly ask for?

I stayed at The Matrix for 2 weeks on a business trip to Edmonton and was I impressed. I travel 40 weeks of the year for business. The rooms are very up to date and well appointed. The complimentary hot buffet was delicous and the dishes were repelenished frequently. I also appreciated that the hot dishes varied from day to day. I took advantage of the complimentary wine and cheese most evenings. The only thing that I was dismayed by was the greed of some of the patrons who seemed to feel that the cheese should be their dinner so took more than there share. The staff generously refilled the cheese trays to try and keep up. The hotel is a 5 block walk to the City Centre Mall.

Room Tip: The even number rooms do get early noises from the trash dumpsters being emptied which disturbed me...
