... I didn't buy anything (I did try on a $600 suit, though). I mean...it's big, but a mall is a mall. It just has more clothes to sift through than regular malls.
There WERE a couple of interesting things to see, like the shop selling weed paraphernalia, including a chemical that supposedly masks THC from a drug test with written instructions prominently displayed. We thought it was a bit strange to see that store in the same place as a Build-A-Bear workshop, but I ...
... no power. But luckily there's lots of natural light. So they are relocating some of the flights to other gates. But our flight is still on time so we are all good for now. I'll try to update you again when we are in Vancouver if I have time but if not I'll update you when we are in ...
... located in it, a marine world with a replica Christopher Columbus ship and sea lion exhibit, their is also a massive water park located on the edge !!!! Truly unreal walking around a place which is just so large, for a while it was the largest mall in world now it's just the biggest mall in North America ...
... and watch some television shows while we wait. It is a great way to pass the time and it seems to go quickly.
At 6:00 p.m. the attendant announces that pre-boarding will soon commence and then they will begin general boarding. The flight is completely sold out. This is not good news, especially for Jim who is sitting in the middle seat. It works out not too badly but it is not the most comfortable. We will manage somehow. The TVs in ...
... and an ocean display where a sea lion show was played which was pretty cool. The ice scatting ring was also very impressive. We spent about 3 and a half hours walking around looking at everything, we didn't really feel the need to do any of the activities as it all seemed to be aimed at children to young teens. We then went to the Royal Alberta Museum and had a good look around before it closed. It had some really ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Chateau Lacombe Hotel Edmonton
They advertise comp wireless high speed internet, but the signal is weak or non existent in many of their rooms. Several people in my company could not get a signal besides myself. The desk person said they would reset the system,it didn't help. The other suggestion was to sit in the lobby or use the business center. The signal is great in the hallway outside my room. Very frustrating after I unpacked to have to move.
I was there for three nights this past weekend. It seemed very busy, the check-in was smooth and easy. They had me on the 6th floor and I hated the room...wallpaper peeling, noisy, small room.
I asked to be moved and they moved me to 1810 which was much nicer. The king bed was very confortable with down quilts and nice large pillows. The lavander room spray was a nice touch as were the ear plugs.
The elevators were alittle on the slow side, and stopped alot on floors, even when they should not have. At first we thought "kids" but it happened to often for that.
I would stay here again.
Great Value with a nice view
I stayed here on business for two nights in August 2005. No complaints as everything was in order as I checked in early around 1:30 PM. The King room was clean and comfortable with free hi-speed wireless internet. I loved the view of the city from my 16th floor room. The only meal I had on site was in the revolving restaurant at the top of the hotel. My dinner was very good and the ride around was enjoyable. My company paid a corporate rate of $105 which in my opinion makes this hotel an exceptional buy. I had rented a car and tacked on anothe $8 per night for parking in the hotel garage. The location was convienient to many restaurants and amenities in the downtown core. I was even able to take in a movie at the Edmonton City Centre which was only a five minute walk.
A hotel of high calibre all around.
Moved here from a really crappy motel in south Edmonton after getting a good deal on it off the Net. Looks great from the outside! Were impressed by the easily accessible location. Don't pay the $8.56 for overnight parking unless you're staying in all day, as you'll find free street parking nearby (metered Mon-Sat, only from 9a-6p). Bit noisy at night if you face north, as there are some bars/pubs close by. Plus, there was a wedding going on downstairs in the banquet room, although there wasn't too much noise pollution from that. Relatively safe area, and nice to go for a jog, as you'll be down to the river in less than 5 minutes. Tim Horton's is less than 5 minutes away. The gym was a bit smaller than you'd expect for the property. Lack of a pool was also a bit odd. Rooms were very nice, the huge king-size bed was great, and they even have a CD player! Room service was fast (we needed towels and the guy was up in less than 2 minutes!), and the registration and checkout were easy.
This was a very nice looking hotel, with all the fancy amenities, but it did not live up to our expectations. The beds were very lumpy, the crib they supplied looked as if it was going to fall apart, and when we put our towels in the tub to be replaced, they weren't...the maid took the towels but didn't replace all of them. All the restaurants were closed by 9pm, and the neighboring areas weren't too promising. (Tim Horton's was one of the closest restaurants and was always busy.)
If you do go, ask for a room that faces the river. Our room faced the street and it was very noisy.
Very nice hotel in a great location with a great view
We only stayed one night in August and found the room and service to be excellent and professional. We got an incredible rate for high season and a wonderful view of the river and city. It is a very unique looking (round) hotel. This will be our first choice next time we are in Edmonton
I dealt with a lady at the Crowne Plaza when booking our wedding * more than likely cannot say a name on this site so I won't). To start she was efficient. The wedding came and went without a hitch, but after she tried to bill us extra for drinks she claimed the guests had order (these were specialty cognacs, etc. that were over $50 a snifter). I had specifically left instructions not to let a guest exceed a beverage of $8.00 per order, and these special cognacs totalled over $1,000 by the time the evening was finished. When we tried to discuss this with her, she was rude and obnoxious. I don't believe all staff at the hotel are like this, but she certainly left a poor taste in our mouth after her horrible treatment. I say a true reflection of service is how they deal with something when they have nothing more to gain, and this woman failed miserably. We will not deal with this hotel EVER again due to her obnoxious treatment of us and lack of professionalism.
Great place to stay
A grand hotel in an excellent location with great views of the river.
This hotel was very easy to find and also had good underground parking.
The room was spacious, bright and spotless. The staff were also very friendly and eager to please and I have no problem recommending it wholeheartedly. My advice would be to get in touch with the hotel direct to find out about special deals, we managed to get free breakfast and parking during our stay.
