Just returned from three night trip to the Marriot at River Cree. It was a good hotel overall. The room was supplied with two double beds which in todays world seemed small especially compared to my King size at home. The fixtures in the room seemed new, the carpets were clean and room overall seemed very well mantained, nothing dirty or needing repair.
Had breakfast in the hotels restaurant and paid $16.99 plus tax for the buffet which consisted of oatmeal, fresh fruit, bread station some prepared egg dishes, cheeses and of course the made to order omlettes. Overall not a bad meal for the price which included juices, tea or coffee.
The tea or coffee shop in the lobby looks nothing like the management supplied hotel photos and seemed in need of straightening up each time I popped in, though I never saw more then one employee working at any time which can make it hard to get out and clean tables.
I was there for a conference and I will say one problem I had was the noise carryover from the other meetings going on during their chants or team work building exercises it indeed took your attention away at time and made it hard to hear our speaker.
I'm not a gambler but did pop into the casino as there is really nothing to do in the later part of the evening and I do feel the restaurant closes too early for those wanting a late meal or snack.
The gym was ok with a good number of cardio choices, the weight selection consisted of two benches and a rack of free weights, maximum weight was 50lbs. The pool was clean.
The Hotel is about 10-15 minutes away from West Edmonton Mall and the Hotel offers a shuttle back and forth, I did not use this feature so I am unsure if there is a cost associated.
Overall and nice clean newer feeling Hotel and I would return.
