“Best spot on Whyte”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Very clean rooms, excellent location, extremely helpful and friendly staff. We took advantage of valet parking which was more than reasonable. Appreciated the earplugs to block "Whyte noise". Had a great night sleep. Walking distance to many great restaurants, lounges, and unique shopping. Looking for an excuse to stay here again!

Wonderful hotel. Central, clean, modern with lots of little perks. Loved the wine and cheese hour. Breakfast was also great. Parking was free. Also got a good deal with the "summer selfie" promo. Great value for money overall. Very comfy bed, stylish room and great toiletries. Wish we had stayed longer!

Room Tip: May want a room that does not face Whyte Ave if you like it quiet. They do include ear plugs.

We recently stayed at the Mettera Hotel on Whyte to celebrate our anniversary. We are from Edmonton, but chose to stay somewhere on Whyte since that is where we met. Check in was quick and friendly, and we easily found the self parking lot just across the street. Our room was very spacious and modern/upscale and being on the 2nd floor we really enjoyed having a patio - it was nice and quiet as our room did not face the avenue. The nightly wine and cheese was a nice surprise - they are very generous with the glasses of wine and had a nice variety of cheese and appetizers - nice treat before dinner. The free breakfast was average, but we enjoyed being able to sit outside on the patio which faces Whyte Ave. When we checked out and mentioned we were there to celebrate our anniversary, we were given a free upgrade card for our future visit (Thanks Jennifer!) - we will be returning next time we are looking to have a close to home getaway. If you are traveling from out of town, you will appreciate the atmosphere and many restaurant/bars along Whyte Ave - great location!

Room Tip: Rooms on the 2nd floor have patios:)

Very good boutique hotel in the middle of the trendiest park of Edmonton. Was impressed with all the complimentary hotel offerings, including VIP parking, wine and cheese, wifi, and breakfast. Walking distance to some great shops, restaurants, and bars.

I was told that Whyte noise is intense, but having a room facing the street with fairly thin windows, it was not the most pleasant sleep. There was a 3am accordion and singing session on the street that was too early for a legitimate wake up call. Ensure you get a room on the 'quiet' side.

+ Offerings as outline above.
+ Excellent location.

- Not the cleanest room, this could use some more attention. Plenty of hairs and crusties around the bed.

Room Tip: Don't get a room facing Whyte Ave, or be prepared for plenty of night noise.

My guy and I spent two nights at the Meterra on the 8th floor. Cute and quaint, the room was small, but really fit well together. The tv was on top of the fireplace and the bar racing the two chairs by the window. It was super hot on Wednesday and our air conditioning didn't work well. My boyfriend called about this and we were given a fan, which did help. The king bed was amazing! We slept very well. We really enjoyed the wine tasting and variety of cheeses. LOVED sitting out on the patio sipping our Vino's. We were super impressed with the staff for this and the morning breakfasts. Again, out in the patio sipping our cafe and eating our yummy breakfast. Yes, I concur it may be a little pricey, but when you take into account the location (really perfect), the extras added in I felt it was a good deal. Our room was not facing the street and we had no issues with noise. I'd have to say we had an incredibly romantic mid week getaway:).

Room Tip: 8th floor away from the Main Street.

Went here as an early getaway for my wife's birthday - the staff were very nice on checking in but parking is not great - yes they do bring your car to you but when we came back late after seeing a movie we had to park down the street from the hotel risking a parking ticket and I was not happy about that . The room was okay but for the rates they charge I would expect more, yes they do provide earplugs but the noise level from the street was so bad we could not sleep with the windows open . All in all I was very disappointed in this hotel and the only reason I'm giving it three stars is because of location .there are nicer hotels in Edmonton that charge less.
