... people ferry us to the station where we have to catch the airport shuttle. We get to the airport, print our boarding passes and luggage tags, check our bags and go through security by 3:15 p.m. I bit early for a 6:30 flight but I would rather be early than rushing. We find a place to sit and then each make a visit to a washroom. On his way back, Jim buys us a Timmys. Luckily the airport offers free wifi for passengers so I pull out ...

... the highway at Leduc which is where oil was first discovered in Alberta. A short time later we rolled into the info centre on the outskirts of Edmonton.
We gathered our brochures and had a bite to eat before hitting the West Ed Mall to kill a few hours. Edmonton looks a lot different in the summer compared to when we were there in January. Everything is green and there are golden patches of wild canola next to the highway. After an enjoyable game of mini golf, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Metterra Hotel on Whyte Edmonton
We spent 2 nights at The Met on the weekend when we were visiting family and it was just wonderful. I've staid in a lot of luxury hotels across Canada and I must say that this was one of the best that I've experienced, even compared to 5-star places like the Fairmount York in Toronto . We decided to be frugal and ordered a standard room, and what a pleasant surprise - it was modern, very spacious, and elegant. It also had a nice view of the city, a king size bed, and a jetted tub. And we got the X'mas special rate - $80/night! We couldn't believe it! The only drawback was that it doesn't have its own restaurnat, room service is served by a restaurant about half a block away - food was still quite good though. The location was excellent too, being right on White Ave. All in all, an excellent experience, and we'll be stayign there from now on whenever we visit the city.
Very nice stay, awesome service
I stayed at the Met for 4 days in september. I had a excellent stay. Frontdesk persons were very courteous, same for the valet. The room was great, well furnished and equiped. The location is also good. The breakfast bar menu was complete and varied. For the price, I would rank this hotel 5 stars.
Loved the Met
My husband and I stayed at the Met for our 7th Anniversary. We booked into the King Suite and it was wonderful! We only paid $235.00 for the night instead of the posted $600/night. A spray shower, jacuzzi tub, fireplace, separate bedroom, and bar all completed the wonderful evening we had planned. And all surrounded by the many things to do on Whyte Avenue. I would stay there again, most definately! And would recommend it highly.
My husband and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary and wanted to stay somewhere special so I did a little research and came up with the Met. I'd never heard of it but the website looked nice and they were offering a very good opening special. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised to be met by a very polite valet and even more surprised to be upgraded to a beautiful suite. We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed our room which was spacious and beautifully decorated. The wine and cheese in the hospitality suite was also great, it was lovely to sit out on the balcony sipping wine and enjoying a nice selection of cheeses and hors d'oeuvres. We can't comment on the complimentary breakfast because we were unable to get out of that unbelievably comfy bed! Compliments to the Met and their very courteous and friendly staff!
Hotel fantastic!! A step ahead for Edmonton
I just wanted to say the Met in Edmonton is spectacular compared to almost any hotel i've ever stayed in. When you compare price to quality, this hotel is still # 1.
Also, I just wanted to respond to comment # 4 on this site titled "Met Hotel: Business Hotel - Motorcycles not welcome."
I personally own 2, 4 star hotels and Valet Parking for motorcycles is 99% never an option at ANY hotel. That is Hotel ettiquet. Also, I happen to know that kinsmen sports centre has 2 hot tubs and a steam room.
The Met was a pleasure !!
Good stay but kinda interesting...
The accomondation was very nice - everyhing modern, clean and the staff was helpful. The only thing that was weird was that the tv turned on by itself three times during the one night that we stayed there. All in all, although I recommend this hotel, don't stay in room in room - either 719 or 714 -- can't remember exactly which one.
A refreshing change from the big chains
Service was good;the hotel decor fresh and trendy; room was very nice; location excellent for where things are happening; need better loading zone out front, had to double park; breakfast could have been fresher
Absolutley Loved the Met!!!
I absolutley loved the Met hotel!! The staff was fantastic, the rooms were amazing....the breakfast was great in the morning! I swear, the bed in this hotel was amazing, I could have fit 4 other people in!! The bathroom was huge! I would definatley recommend staying here- excellent location and well worth the cost- which is quite reasonable with all that you get, free valet parking, wine and cheese, breakfast......all around great hotel!!
Since the hotel is only 6 months old, everything is clean and modern looking.
Move over posh New York hotels, here comes the Met Hotel in, of all places, EDMONTON!!! I wasn't expecting too much from the met as the sister hotel to this property, The Varscona, was in my opinion only slightly above average. But this place truly is a hotel in the finest taste. The decor is very modern, classy and somewhat similar to the 'W' hotels associated with Starwood. But at a closer look I feel it even surpasses those. There are mohogany woods lined with sharp looking stainless steel, chic waterfalls in the lobby and ethnic artwork and sculptures that scream class. The staff was also beyond my expectations as they are dressed very 'GQ', they are friendly, informed and professional. They host delicious wine and cheese tasting in the evening with H'orderves, breakfast in the morning, valet parking and high speed internet... all included in the very affordable rate. I feel like I should be working for the hotel, but I was so impressed I had to share! I recommend this one to ALL!
