I have stayed at the Metterra and the sister hotel, Varscona on work trips previously. My husband and I decided to have a night in Edmonton and booked a hotel at the Metterra due to the location, and I had good experiences previously.
Our room was nice, although quite small. And the breakfast in the morning was really good. lots of selection and nice to have some warm breakfast options as well. The bed was comfy, but we both woke up extremely early as the room was sweltering! We had turned the heat was down all the way when we got into the room, but the room was still extremely warm. We had a balcony, and no windows that would open so we tried to open the door to cool the room off slightly, but we could not open it, and it seemed that it was frozen shut.
After a long mostly sleepless night, we decided to get up early and hit the road. After a call down for our vehicle we were told it would be a 30-45 minute wait. Annoying, but not a big deal. We finished packing, and getting ready and headed down stairs probably about 30 minues after we had called for our vehicle. At the front desk, we were told it would be at least another 20 minutes. I know my way around edmonton, and know Whyte Ave and knew our vehicle couldn't be too far away so asked if we could just walk to our car. After the front desk advised we would have to walk about 3 blocks to the parkade to get our vehicle he grabbed the keys and noticed it wasn't where it should be. It was considered "oversized" and was parked just across the road in the tiniest parking lot ever. After getting the mass confusion figured out, we walked for about 2 minutes to our vehicle and are very thankful we didn't continue to wait for our vehicle to be driven around the block.
Although our stay wasn't horrible, we wouldn't stay here again. We have stayed in other hotels in Edmonton that we have enjoyed more.
