“As good as gets.”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

We travel extensively and especially to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. We searched online and found this hotel and it was a new one to us, we have stayed in numerous ones in Edmonton over the years. This one is so far ahead of anything we have experienced in Edmonton before, we will never stay anywhere but here again. Very friendly staff at the front desk and in the breakfast area.
We have been paying far more for much poorer hotels that offer no Breakfast in the price. The beds are comfortable, internet and phone provided at a beautiful desk area, flat screen TV wall mounted, nicely laid out washroom and shower etc. and a great central location that was within a few blocks of our meeting place. We have traveled to many countries and vacation spots and experience has been disappointing in many, this one tops the list.

We stayed at the Matrix for 4 nights. The room was excellent, breakfast frest and more than expected. The staff was very personable and also willing to negotiate a price for a suite (for a family). Would recommend this hotel. Its a central location.

Room Tip: You can ask for lower rates.

Great location for my meeting. The hotel was clean and even the room smelled fresh. The breakfast was more than expected. Will stay here again! The restaurant associated with the hotel was perfect for dinner. The pool looked great. I need to remember to bring my suit.

I stayed a few weeks ago with my mom and sister and we enjoyed our stay. This was our second stay at the Matrix hotel. The main lobby is very nice and I found the front desk staff helpful. I asked for a room away from the elevator as last time we stayed you could hear the elevator through the walls and it was quite loud. But this time the room was quiet, clean and nicely decorated. Very modern looking with grey tones. The beds were very comfortable.
The bathroom had a sliding almost barn type door that wasn't super private but with family it was fine ( last time we stayed the bathroom was tucked away and had a real door. )
My mom used the fitness center and said it was nice.
The complementary breakfast was better than a lot of hotels. They had hot options( eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes) and the typical continental breakfast.
We did not try out the attached restaurant but I have heard really great things from friends.
Overall it was a great stay and I would return.

Nice hotel centrally located. Staff is extremely helpful and rooms are clean and spacious. Quite a nice view from top floors. Breakfast included and free wi-fi. Ideal for business trips. If you need to stay during weekend there are not many entertainment options nearby but there are good restaurants very close to the hotel. I would definitely return.

Downtown location. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Good rooms. Breakfast was included and was very good; wifi also included. A great bonus was wine and appies from 17:00 to 19:00 daily (at least during the week). Good wine and food; a nice, relaxing way to wind up the day!

The only real miss for me was the poor gym facilities. A small room, probably a guest room converted (but there are no washroom facilities nearby) and there was only one treadmill which, given the clientele, was very much in demand. I tried to beat the rush with a 05:00 start but one day, someone else had the same idea and I was out of luck.

One other small point - only two elevators and at the beginning and end of the day, long wait times. Tried to use the stairs but stairwell doors were generally locked so couldn't always access my floor using the stairs. This may have been for security since key cards were required in the elevators but the stair doors could have key card access as well.

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!
