Looking it’s age
This hotel unfortunately is showing its age. In the hallways the carpet is wrinkling as well as coming up in some parts, the room looks tired and unfortunately our view was the whole venting system. Towels are threadbare and robes look well worn. The positives are: bed extremely comfortable, front desk team was excellent at check in and next day, location is amazing.

We always choose to stay here
We stay here whenever we visit Edmonton. The area is perfect and the hotel always very good. I have downgraded a little this time as the reception area is looking rather sad with the carpet in desperate need of replacement. Also the towels were rather thin and not at all soft.
