Round bed weird but a fun room :)
This review is the subjective opinion of a TravelPod member and not of TravelPod.com.
This hotel is right in West Edmonton Mall and so is close to the amusement park, water park , shopping and lots of other attraction.
We booked a large room with 2 queen beds and a set of bunk beds so we could sleep 5 people. The room was big and the bathroom small. The hot water in the shower was inconsistent, sometimes warm and then cold. The bathroom was so small and didnt have great ventilation so it was very steamy. There were no towel racks so with 5 people wanting showers there was never anywhere for wet towels to hang.

Historical Traveler Reviews Fantasyland Hotel & Resort Edmonton
Loved the Roman Room!
My wife and I honeymooned at the mall, but the part we enjoyed the most was our week long stay at the FantasyLand Hotel in The Roman Room. the staff at the hotel was superb and the accomodations could not have been better for two people on their honeymoon. our room was spacious and very comfortable. We would wake in the morning and eat at the Fantasy land Grill and thwn stroll aroun the mall for a bit, tire out some and return to the room for some relaxation. the jacuzzi tub was very comfortable and after a bit of rest we woul again venture out to the mall for lunch and a trip to the waer park. my wifw and I both thouroughly enjoyed our week there.
I stayed in a Polynesian theme room, it had a hot tub in the shape of a
volcanoe with red lights.. very nice. Big bed with mirror on ceiling.
Room was excellent but you have to pay for the TV channels, and no
minibar. I would have given this full marks except it is very
expensive, but for a romantic treat for 1 or 2 nights it is awesome. I
wouldnt stay there for longer for fear of going bankrupt!!! The west
edmonton mall in which it is situated is absolutely fantastic!!!8 out
A horror-land/no fantasy!
Upon my arrival at the Fantasyland hotel,i was dissapointed as soon as i entered the room.I booked the Roman room,and was amazed at the miniscule appointments.The room looks as it must have the day it opened in the 80's,yup,it hasn't been updated in that long,(and it shows),worn bathroom fixtures and carpet greet your eyes upon entering. The jacuzzi tub,which was unusually deep,has a remarkably small tap,which fills the tub.Hopefully you have an hour to wait to fill the tub,because it will take that long to fill it to a level that is satisfactory.Now comes the best(note sarcasm)part..the bed.The bed is round,which would be fine if it were a coil mattress bed,but sadly(remebering that this bed was not updated since 1986)it is a foam mattress,and let me tell you,after walking around the mall all day,and being really tired,this bed was the single most uncomfortable bed i have ever slept on.Hard,Hard,Hard are the three words that describe it the best.After an unspeakably awful night,with little or no sleep,i looked forward to the coach seat of the plane home,so i could recline it and perhaps catch a dew winks before arriving back home.If you sleep on a 34 yr old hand-me-down mattress,then this is the suite for you..if you're like the rest Avoid this gaudy,understated,tiny,overpriced rip-off!
Hotel at the Mall
The staff at the front desk (Neil) was great. We stayed in the western theme room and enjoyed it. Now the mall was ok. My wife was frustated with the womans clothing selections. It's a mall people and that's it.
We had more fun checking out the Zoo and Fort Edmonton. Are son (5) by the 3rd day was burnt out by the mall. The hotel he loved though. C-ya
Glad we went once
My fiancee and I stayed in the Polynesian room in January 2003. The decorations were really fun. I laughed when I saw that the water for the hot tub actually comes out of a "volcano". The staff at the hotel were very nice, happy to answer questions and gave us prompt service. The hotel is attached to the West Edmonton mall, and given that it was January when we were there, it was very nice to be able to walk to a restaurant and movie theater without going out in the cold. There was a mini-fridge in the room. The hot tub was a bit noisy when it was running, and it was difficult to have a conversation. Unfortunately, the hot tubs in the other rooms were also noisy and we could hear them when they were running. Overall, it was fun for one visit, but we probably wouldn't stay there again.
Our experience at this hotel was OK but there were a few problems. The Victorian Coach room we booked showed signs of aging, the hot tub was smack dab in the middle of the room and the power would constantly go out at peak hours. We complained about the power but since the whole floor would get power outages there was nothing they could do. Even after complaining when checking out they didn't apologize for the power outages. No compensation = no repeat visit. The room was even kind of small for the amount you're paying. Go to the Holiday Inn Palace on Calgary Trail and you'll be much happier.
Old and tired
my husband and I spent 2 nights in the roman room, we were fairly disappointed. The room looked old and tired, the bedding was old and worn.the hot tub was beautiful but there was nothing to put in the water for bubbles of aroma etc. The continental breakfast was over at 11 a.m. and we were late so we had to pay for it....Our room on the second day was still not cleaned when we got back from shopping at 2 p.m. so we settled for some clean towels and glasses.For $465.00 we probably could have gotten more bang for our buck somehwere else. There were no extra nice touches...I quess we expected to much....
Enjoyed my stay
On a recent holiday to Canada, which I spent touring, I spent the final week staying at the Fantasy Land Hotel. The hotel could not be situated in better place, for access to the mall. (What an amazing place) My family and I had a wonderful time. The staff where more than friendly and helpful at all times. The room was clean, and all the facilities where excellent. I would like to thank everyone there for giving us warm welcome, and highly recommend anyone who may be planning a visit to Edmonton and need to stay in a good hotel to book into the Fantasy Land Hotel
Relive the Fantasy!!
We went to the fantasyland hotel last december. We wanted something different and exciting and something near the mall because we had alot of christmas shopping to do. We stayed in 3 rooms on our 3 nights there because they didnt have any one room available for all 3 nights. The first room we stayed in was the polynesian room. This room had a rock waterfall and a sailboat bed and was absolutely FANTASTIC. It was so much fun and was really pretty with the waterfall flowing into the jet tub. The second room we stayed in was the Victorian Coach room. This one wasnt so nice. It was just really disappoing compared to the room we were in the night before and so we switched again. The bed was also very uncomfortable. The third and final room we stayed in was the Hollywood Room. This room had just been redone, in fact, the whole floor had. I LOVED THIS ROOM! The mirrors and the lights and the view and the tub .... everything about this room was just so fun! The service was also great. We must have really been an inconvenice switching rooms like that but they were always really polite and fast moving our luggage and bags. I would recommend them to anyone.
West Edmonton Mall's Own Hotel
This hotel appears as an afterthought tacked onto the far west end of West Edmonton Mall, with a lobby that opens off one of the mall's 68 entrances. The superior rooms are large, well appointed and recently renovated, putting forward an urban city feel in the middle of the suburbs. Washrooms are a little cramped and outdated. The theme rooms, ranging from Polynesian to Igloo, are showing their wear, but are still unique and fun for families. Do not be fooled by the lure of the 'hot tub' - they are nothing more than shallow-bottom tubs moved out into the bedroom area. There may be no water circulation at all, beyond a mild whirling sensation. All in all, a nice, pleasant hotel to rest up in during a full-out shopping excursion.

Our somewhat uncomfortable train ride from Jasper over, we lined up to catch a taxi to our hotel in downtown Edmonton with a bunch of other people wanting to go to various places. It was a bit unpleasant because it was late and everyone was tired and cranky so people kept pushing in line and running out to the taxis that pulled up before the next person in line could get there. We just decided to hang back and let people bicker until they were all gone ...
... lovely to see them……they both look really well and happy, which is great to see.
We went first to book in at our hotel, and drop off our suitcases; and then went to Marc and Kathrin's apartment. It is a one bedroom apartment, and they have a basement one. It is in a greta location close to shops and cafes; a bit like living in Northbridge. Our hotel is literally one block from their house, and while we were booking in, Marc parked the car outside their ...
