... was certainly still in the party mood. On Saturday the weather was surprisingly good and I spent the whole day strolling around Boston. It felt like coming home, before I was actually going back home. I chilled in Boston Common in the morning and then headed downtown to shop around Copley Square and Newbury street. I went to the airport around 5pm and checked in my bag so that I could watch the Dutch play the Costa Ricans. However, due to their endless game and penalties I ended ...

Despite being only maybe 5 feet inside of cell phone coverage I called my cousin Kelly for some advice. A huge shout out has to go to him for his mechanical knowhow and he managed to talk me through some procedures to reboot the computer and get back on the road. Thanks Kel, you're a lifesaver !!

Such a huge shopping malls are scattered around Edmonton. There's a reason for that, actually two of them. First, as I mentioned , in winter is freaky cold here, so people since the first arival sought for warmth in cafes and bars in such harshest winter times and later in shopping centers. And the second reason is the fact that people here live very well. Alberta is the richest province of Canada and especially Edmonton with huge source of raw materials, such as oil, ...

I headed down towards the river, and headed east. Not any human tracks to be seen, but lots of animal ones. I got down into a large open field like area, and heard some snow mobiles, which are not allowed in the city. But it turned out to be the STANSKI track setting crew, 2 of them. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Edmonton Marriott At River Cree Resort
Agréable séjour en famille au Marriott
L'équipe de Hockey de notre fils (comprenant 12 familles) a séjourné au River Cree Marriott Hotel and Casino à Edmonton Nous avons été très impressionnés par la propreté et le service sympathique.
Les lits étaient très confortables et les chambres étaient propres et neuves. Le café était gratuit (de la marque Starbucks) et des télévisions écrans plats dans toutes les chambres. Les plats au restaurant étaient très bons, en particulier le brunch du dimanche qui avait un prix raisonnable et un choix varié.
Il était bien situé pour se rendre au tournoi de Hockey et aussi proche de Water slides et du centre commercial de West Edmonton.
Les grands enfants ont joué au black jack au casino, tandis que les plus jeunes, avec leurs parents ont apprécié de rencontrer d'autres gens dans la "hospitality suite".
Le week-end était formidable pour les enfants comme pour les parents. Nous reviendrons volontiers et nous recommandons cet agréable hôtel.
Horrible staff. Horrible Ammenities.. Not at all what we were expecting.
They were Very Rude, very unprofessional. I will never stay here again and I would not reccomend it to anyone else either. They have Adopted a cash only policy and they want to be paid for your stay up front before you stay! Beware!
Our room was left dirty and we were treated like we were complaining for no reason. like expecting maid service to come and give you clean towels and make the bed it too much to ask. I would never Recommend this hotel to anyone.
Their Gym, Pool, and Spa were horrible. The gym is 4 treadmills a universal and a bike. the Pool is so small I don't know why they bothered and their spa is a 5 man hottub.. again.. I don't know why they bothered.. they are no where near downtown.. they aren't even essentially in Edmonton..
There are no extras in your room.. no coffee no nothing... they expect you to go use their starbucks downstairs. as well.. if your ice machine is broken on your floor they will tell you and I quote.. so go find the stairs and go up to another floor and get it yourself. and then hang up on you...
I am not impressed by the rude treatment of the staff and the management that we spoke to really didn't care. they treat you like you are the one in the wrong if you are having issues. our stay was a compleate nightmare.. and the staff there needs some serious hospitality training.
Un hotel fantastico!
Il River Cree Marriott è fantastico! Abbiamo prenotato quest'albergo per due notti dopo che siamo tornati da Cuba! Ci hanno fatto un prezzo speciale: abbiamo pagato circa €80 a notte il che era eccellente! Prima cosa, questo posto è enorme.... all'interno vi troverete un casinò e una pista di pattinaggio. C'è anche un ristorante, anche se abbiamo deciso di mangiare nel centro commerciale! La camera era immacolata, i letti erano pronti per la notte e avevamo una TV LCD con uno schermo piatto molto grande! Inoltre era bello avere un letto matrimoniale grande dopo un volo così lungo da Cuba. La camera era un pochino piccola, ma non minuscola. C'è anche un servizio navetta gratuito che vi collega con West Edmonton Mall... meglio che dover pagare un taxi! Il personale alla reception e al casinò era estremamente gentile e disponibile! Insomma, siamo stati davvero bene in quest'hotel. Se ci facessero di nuovo lo stesso prezzo, senza dubbio ci torneremmo!
This place is amazing! We booked a stay here for two nights on our way back from Cuba! They had a special rate of $119 per night which was excellent! First of al this place is huge...there is a casino as well as an ice rink on site. There is also a restaurant, however we chose to eat while at the mall! The room was very clean, the bedding was all down, and we had a big flad screen LCD TV! We also had a king size bed which was nice after such a long flight from Cuba. The room was a little small, but not cramped. There is also a free shuttle to and from West Ed Mall...beats paying cab fare! The staff at the front desk and in the casino are very nice and helpful! We were very happy with our stay here. If we could get this rate again we would definitely go back!
Cet endroit est incroyable! Nous avons réservé un séjour de deux nuits à notre retour de Cuba! Ils avaient un tarif spécial à 119 $ la nuit ce qui est excellent! Tout d'abord, cet endroit est gigantesque... il y a un casino et une patinoire sur place. Il y a aussi un restaurant, mais on a choisi de manger au centre commercial ! La chambre était très propre, la couette et les oreillers étaient en duvet, nous avions une grande télévision écran plat LCD ! Nous avions aussi un lit taille King ce qui était agréable après un si long vol depuis Cuba. La chambre était un peu petite, mais pas confinée. Il y avait aussi une navette gratuite pour les allers-retours au centre commercial d'Edmonton... c'est mieux que de payer le taxi ! Le personnel à la réception et au casino était très gentil ! Nous étions très contents de notre séjour. Si nous avions encore ce tarif, nous reviendrions volontiers.
A Great Place to stay !!!
This Hotel is really a Great place to stay at their Special price of $99 per night . There is a Casino attached with a 3 or 4 different lounges ,2-Arenas, a totally modern gym , a coffee shop , a pool/hot tub and many meeting rooms . The guest rooms have big LCD TV'S and are really deluxe with awesome beds and furniture. The pool should have been made bigger but its very nice and clean . They have a free shuttle (Edm Transit) that takes you to West Edm Mall every half hour although they will only stop at the bus stop before the mall and the one after the Mall. This may be part of a battle between the WEM Mall's Casino and the River Cree Casino (?) , its only a short walk (under 5min) to the mall from the stop but may be an issue for someone older with walking issues or if its -20c ! The regular room rate is around $140 which is at least what I would expect to pay for a place like this .Their Special room rate is probably being offered in an effort to become known I doubt it will be available in the future for long .
Everything about this place is first class in fact that is a
drawback too as their nicest restaurant is very pricey but the lounge food is a cheaper alternative .The Resort is located on the West side of Edmonton off WhiteMud Road where the double lanes change to single lanes, look for the 10story structure on
the southside of WhiteMud Rd. They say its in Enoch, AB which basically must be part of the city of Edmonton as its only a 10 min drive from the west Edm Mall. Bottom line is the Marriott River Cree Resort is a good place to let people know about if they plan to go to Edmonton .
Ps: I can't imagine what a 4 star looks like !
Un albergo orrendo dove stare. Per niente pulito. La gente non era cordiale. La direzione non ci aiutato con nessuno dei problemi che abbiamo incontrato. Camere sporche. Gli addetti all'assistenza clienti erano davvero presuntuosi. Mai più.
NON VI CONSIGLIO QUEST'ALBERGO.
Awful place to stay.. not clean.. people we not friendly... management did not help to resolve any of our problems. Dirty rooms. Guest Service people were very stuck up. Never again I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE.
Good and Bad!
Sister and I stayed at the Rivercree in the middle of November. GOOD: We did get a very good rate of 99.00 so we thought we would go and check it out. The hotel is new and smells and looks new which is terrific! The room was a big small but had alot of nice perks...robes and lots of comfy pillows and luxe bedding! Lots of movies for everybody if you know what I mean! Big casino that allows smoking if that's your thing.
BAD: Food at the buffet and roomservice is AWFUL! And expensive! 25/27 for buffet? Very little choice and sub par!!! We ordered room service: "Deep dish apple pie with vanilla bean sauce - 7.00" we got STORE BOUGHT ORDINARY APPLE PIE WITH NO NOTHING! NO ICECREAM NO ANYTHING ! and not even cut very well??? We did not eat it and complained to management that took over 1.5 to come to our room? We weren't charged.
WHERE TO EAT??? Tap 25 -Burgers, wraps yummy sweat potatoe fries.
SAGE - Didn't try because it would be at least 50.00 per person.
WARNING: There is no coffee maker in the room and no free in morning so be prepared to pay 3.50 at Starbucks.
POOL: Why did they bother to build such a small pool??? Barely big enough to get in and have a splash??? In such a cold climate they should have built a large fun pool instead of a dinky splash pool...which was not even clean? Very visible dirt on bottom and cloudy water?
STAFF: Most of the staff did not know what was going on or seemed to care. The ladies at the players club were snotty and annoyed at our questions.
The Marriott Edmonton at River Cree Resort is a new hotel that just opened in November 2006. The hotel is very nice, very clean, and houses a casino that is part of the hotel.
The rooms are spotless and very clean. The bed is very comfortable. I found the smoke alarm that is centred right in the ceiling quite disturbing. Once you turn off the lights to go to sleep, the smoke alarm light blinks on and off incessantly. I guess you just need to turn over and you will soon drift off to sleep in that comfy bed.
The hotel is located about 5 minutes from West Edmonton Mall. There are quite a few restaurants in the hotel. I found them to be on the expensive side. I would prefer to eat outside of the hotel and then venture back to the hotel. Two things I'm not that happy about is (1) the staff in the hotel seem to be lacking in the knowledge of the area surrounding the hotel and (2) internet is not included in the hotel rate.
Overall, not too bad for a brand new hotel.
