Hotels in Edmonton
 
Hey all

Can anyone recommend nice hotels in the centre of Edmonton for a reasonable price? or guest houses that people have stayed in?

Many thanks

Do not stay in the Econolodge, it was truly awful.

Pubes and piss on the toilet seat, stained sheets, dirty carpets, broken shower a hateful place! If it wasn't for my friends being such good hosts in Edmonton I would have got back on the plane and come straight home.

I cannot express the importance of this...

DO NOT stay at the Grand Hotel in Edmonton, despite how nice the website makes it sound I have never seen a dodgier, more disgusting place ever in my life. It is surrounded by drugs, smackheads, scumbags and drunks..and is in one of the worst areas in downtown Edmonton (next to the greyhound station).

Im saying this because a couple of friends of mine came close to staying there after seeign the website

If you want right downtown try Edmonton House.

Apartment style hotel so you get living room, Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom.

Not cheap but also not overly expensive.

Avoid the Days Inn downtown, its not good.

The Days Inn on the west end is good though.

If you have a car the west end might get you a better rate, there are a few nice hotels down that way, and only a 20 minute drive to downtown.

The Marriott Courtyard near the Shaw Conference Centre was not bad for our last visit. On a previous trip the Delta on Gateway Blvd was pretty shabby (and not downtown of course). I think Edmonton's hotel stock reflects a frontier town character - you'd have to pay a fortune for anything that would impress. If you're used to hotels in, say, US cities, then you need to diminish your expectations!

crown plaza, only one i would recommend, been in a few through work, this one with the la ronde at the top is the best, though pricey.

Spent most of November at the Ramada Edmonton South. Rooms were fine, but it was a bit noisy because of the attached indoor water park - seems to be a weekend destination for families with young kids. I was expecting worse because the price was low (about $110/nt) but it was quite acceptable. Within walking distance are Moxies, Applebees, Tony Romas, Moose Factory, some enormous pizza place, several Chinese and a good Vietnamese. If you've just landed then having the HSBC bank right over the road is convenient too!

Anyone got good experience of a suite hotel where the rooms have cooking facilities?
