      They had no cribs or playpens. EVERY hotel we go to does and we go to 2 or 3 hotels a month

      The location to Rexall Place was perfect, with it only being a nice 10 minute walk away. Parking and wi-fi is free and the hotel staff, both day and night were very friendly and helpful. We had brunch in the restaurant and the quality of food, the portions, and the prices were excellent. We will definitely return the next time we are the area.

      Bed and pillows were comfortable. Restaurant has nice breakfast. Price was reasonable.

      Was unable to control temperature in my room. To warm.

      I found the front desk staff to be excellent. Very friendly and helpful. The rooms were quiet but the beds were a most pleasant surprise - extremely comfortable. Nice pillows, comforters and sheets too.

      For a supposedly non-smoking hotel our room - on the first night - smelled like a heavy mix of stale secondhand cigarette smoke and air deodourizer. Gave me a headache. It was better the second night and much better by the third night.

      It was very relaxing the beds were very comfy and it was clean.

      Close to the countryside of Edmonton.

      The parking lot has many potholes with water and the carpet in rooms are dirty. I wouldn't stay in this hotel if I am travel alone. The gambling place adjacent to the Hotel attracting people from all walk of life. There are signs telling guests to be seated by themselves in the restaurant yet there are no signs telling guests to show their breakfast coupons ahead of time. I ended up assuming the breakfast coupon was for a buffet breakfast (which many hotels in the world work like that) and paid for my breakfast instead of having a free breakfast. Staff members are nice though.

      The bed was amazing. The restaurant served good food and all the staff were very friendly

      The elevator was very small and slow and the flooring in the hallway and rooms was very stained making it feel dirty. That would be the biggest reason for not returning.

      It was well located, quiet. The restaurant was excellent.

      Several things (1) I did not sleep well at all - there is a flood light in the parking lot that shone right into the room and the curtains were not good enough to keep the room dark. (2) The air conditioner did not see to work well. The room was very hot when I arrived. Fortunately because of the time of year, the room cooled down quickly as the sun went down. (3) The room did not have any lamp on the desk - I and most other people who attend for business use the desk for work after hours. (4) There were no outlets on or near the desk to plug a computer or anything else into.

      Although it looked like an old building the hotel was very clean, the rooms very clean, and the breakfast in the hotel very good. The beds were very comfortable as well. This was close to Rexall Place so you could walk there.

      Just the VLT attached. When people went out to smoke they were just in front of the door and the smoke drifted in and down the hall to the front desk area.

      Friendly staff

      The room had lots of problems, the carpet was wet, the shower sprayed all over the bathroom, even on the ceiling, we hit our legs on the bed frame that was sticking out.

      Remote control did not work, so as phone and clock. Asked the operator about the remote, he said they would send us another, but nothing was done.

      Receptionist smoked in frot of the door at night, and just threw the butt when she walked in.

      equipments are old or broken.

      The beds were very comfortable, that location was perfect for where I was staying!! I also really liked the size of the mini fridge in the room

      I did not like the fact that there was no thermostat or fan! It was ridiculously hot and almost unbearable! The only part I didn't like about my stay!
