Right on Whyte Avenue (Edmonton's small entertainment district), this is a high-end hotel at midrange prices. It is clean, modern, quiet, and provides immediate walking access to many great restaurants and bars and shops. I recommend the Continental Treat for authentic European meals, Yanni's for the best Greek you will have in Western Canada, King and I for Edmonton's best Thai. Also nearby is Maki Maki for excellent sushi (believe it or not), and New York Bagel Cafe (maybe a 10-minute walk) for breakfast. Parking can be a nuisance here, and on Friday and Saturday nights it can get loud, but polite Canadian loudness, not boorishness. Excellent hotel. If you can't get in here, the Metterra just down the street is equally good.
