The Good
Guests were very pleased with this hotel.

Rooms were clean, modern and well appointed with comfortable beds. Guests enjoyed big showers, lots of pillows and well-stocked kitchenettes.

Guests liked the quiet location away from downtown’s nightlife scene. It was handy to the highway, the Oil Sands, businesses and downtown by car.

Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable.

Guests enjoyed the breakfast buffet. It was above the average, with good variety, a smoothie of the day and a new omelet station.

Guests enjoyed meals on site as well with great staff and excellent food.

Guests also liked: the small convenience market which offered sandwiches and salads for a quick lunch, underground parking (especially in winter), and the lounge for relaxing or meeting with friends.
