If staying at the Hotel Selkirk is part of your experiencing Fort Edmonton, there is no better way to do it. If you're just looking for a place to stay, you'll want a different hotel. For us, it was almost perfect. We had a suite just above the hotel doors, therefore a fantastic view of 1905 Street and part of 1920 Street. Having the opportunity to walk around the park after hours when it was quiet was also a big plus. The two rooms themselves were nice with a bit of a 1920's feel. No TV - which was a huge blessing. Instead of a shower, we had a tub. It took longer to bathe, but gave a nice feel. Even the telephones were made with a 1920's look. It would have been nice to have a small fridge - maybe they could have labeled it as "icebox"! Our room also was named after a well known Edmontonian family and they actually had information about the family in a book in the room. Overall, a very good experience.
