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.
Fantastic stay at the Met!!!
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!!
Business hotel - motorcycles not welcome
Since the hotel is only 6 months old, everything is clean and modern looking.
I have no complaints with the continental breakfast, and the 100mbit network connection in your room is good for business travellers.
The wine and cheese tasting was educational, and I do like Brie.
Some things you should know:
The hotel does not have a hot tub. None of the nearby hotels do either. Neither does the Kinsmen Sports Center nearby.
Not all rooms have bathtubs - some have showers only. If you want a soak at the end of the day, request a room with a bathtub.
Also, the valets cannot ride motorcycles. Not many tourists show up on motorcycles I'm sure, but if you do, be prepared to drive yourself to the parkade 2 blocks away and walk back to the hotel each time you arrive.
Beautiful Botique Hotel, Fantastic Staff, Location Etc!!!
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!

... and a big bag of hand warmers. The bag has big warning labels about burn hazards but no matter what I do I can't get them to heat up past tepid. I use electrical tape to tape one above and one below each wrist to heat the blood at the radial artery. I also tape one into the palm of each hand, then put the blue rubber glove on.
The small amount of heat from the ineffectual chemical hand warmers extends my hand warming interval to about 30 kms. Later on ...

By the time we were waterlogged, tired and extremely hungry it was evening and time to go. Dinner was at the food court before going to watch some little kids have their ice hockey practice.

Pleased its not in our carry-on luggage. And then Javi came over for another cuddle with us, which was super nice of him, before the hoards of people mobbed him - selfies, signatures, handshakes - he wisely stayed on ...
