Small boutique hotel located in the core of the downtown area, however, it doesn't really live up to its 4 star rating. Stayed here for 4 days with my wife in an upgraded Sterling Suite ($220/night), which was located on the 10th floor adjacent to the main elevator shaft. The sound of the elevators whizzing by our room was certainly somewhat annoying, especially at night but not nearly as noisy as the baseboard heaters, which tended to make a loud "clicking" every 10-15 minutes as they cycled on/off. The room itself was very clean and modern with a separate sitting area and kitchen, which were really handy. The suite included two large LCD TV's (in the bedroom and sitting area) which was a nice touch and even an electric fireplace, but this wasn't working. One night, we decided to have dinner/drinks in the hotel lounge on the 2nd floor and positioned ourselves next to the large fireplace there, but it wasn't working either. Parking at this hotel was also a challenge since they have a very limited number of outdoor covered spaces which tended to fill up quickly when the hotel was busy. Our favourite features of this hotel were the dual shower heads and the complimentary breakfast buffet, which was actually quite good considering the price. If we return to Edmonton, we'll likely stay elsewhere since the city is full of 3 star hotels.
