A very nice, high class hotel. Part of a chain of 5 high end hotels in Fort McMurray. Location is not an issue. Nothing is more than a2 km away in the fort. Outside grounds are parking lots and streets. Not a lot of lawn here. Parking was tight. Everyone drives full size pickups and vans, Outside parking spaces are made for cars. Tough to open the doors. Underground parking is heated and secure, but 6ft 8in clearance means all these monster trucks cant fit.
Lobby and halls are clean, and nicely decorated. I was checking in on a Monday at 5pm, the lineup was huge. But the front desk staff was vey good. Fast, efficient. 5 minutes I had my key, and directions to the room. Well done.
I had a king suite, 4th floor. Beautiful room. Clean. Separate bedroom, sitting area. Fridge, microwave, coffee maker, sink. 2 TVs. These are the big older tvs, but they work well, good picture. Furniture is good quality, room was very quite, always hot water. High end bath robe, nice towels. Didn't see any bugs. There was a notice in the room from management asking clients to put the drain plugs in their sinks. They are aware of a problem, and they are working at it. Takes a lot of guts to tell your guests to watch for bugs. Good for them.
Housekeeping was good. But not quite perfect. Everything was clean and tight, but the bathroom and sink glasses were never replaced. Just left sitting where they were the day before. I started out with 3 washcloths in the bathroom. Fancy folds like a flower. Used one the 1st day. It wasn't replaced. Down to 2. Used one the 2nd day. No replacement. Down to one. Used it, and now I've got none. Hmmm.
So, for difficult parking, and lack of attention to detail, I have to take a notch off the perfection belt. Very nice, well worth the money, but not quite perfect. I will try again soon though. It is worth coming back to.
