... not in a hurry to come back to Edmonton. I heard no far too much. I know it is a generalization, but it appears that there is a large portion of the Edmonton population is just not flexible!
I always used to joke that the Germans were the inflexible ones, the Canadians might have them beat. When making fun of the German inclination to be rigid, I used to say "Alles Mussen Ordnung Haben". This means Everything must always be in order. This sums up many of the Canadians I met on my ...
Arrived after a long and tiring flight, many babies on the plane, they were good it was the three year old who was not! Took a few pictures on e way in from the airport. Lots of inushuks along the way. Got to the hotel and my word is my room small, it has two twin beds in it, a tiny desk and it is full wall to wall. I knew it would be, have a place for my suitcase! Going to try and grab a few hours ...
I used to be proud of Tysons Corner Mall in a way. Large and glitzy it somehow symbolized the best of the worst -- excess consumption at its finest. Until I went to the West Edmonton Mall. Now I have seen the future -- it leaves Tysons way behind -- and its fun...

... skillz before we went to the big boys mountain in Banff. As it turned out I had entirely forgotten how to snowboard, to the degree where I couldn’t even stand up. To say that the kids weren’t impressed wasn’t the half of it. But both of them were extraordinarily sweet, Lauren skiing along side me cheer-leading and Alex concluding ‘you were ok Aunty Fiona, you just need a bit more confidence’ Out of the mouths of babes and that.

I wish to live,
the desire to cross,
the desire to discover
what lies beyond the sea.
I hope my mouth

I also hope that this planes turbines
I Don't have it all figured out or my life settled,
I only have one smile
and hope for one in return.
I trust in destiny
and in the surf.
I do not believe in the Church

Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Edmonton
We stayed for 3 nights in the middle of December, 2005.
We've just returned from Edmonton. We stayed at the Westin for 3 nights. I was a little concern about staying at this hotel after seeing some of the reviews, but I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with the cleaniless, friendly staff and excellent food. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone going to Edmonton. The only bad thing during our stay was the elevators were being upgraded and there's sometimes a long wait for it but I didn't mind since we are on holiday.
My husband and I just returned from a week at the Westin in Edmonton. I was pretty concerned about this reservation after reading some of the reviews on this site. At check in the two employees checking us in were pleasant. One of them immediately recognized my voice and welcomed me by name since she had called my home earlier to confirm my reservation. We arrived at 11:00 a.m. and were lucky to be able to check in immediately. We stayed on the 15th floor and were given the view we requested. I found the hotel to be fine, the bed great, the double shower head a real treat from the normal showers you will find in a hotel. The one thing I noticed immediately was a bottle of complementary water left in the room. May sound like a little thing but to peole who drink a great deal of water this was a nice touch since in most hotels there is a $4.50 charge. We stayed for 7 nights and a bottle of water was left every day. One of the elevators was being worked on when we arrived and seven days later it was still not working. Since we were on vacation time wasn't an important factor to us so even though at times the wait was longer than usual it really wasn't a big deal to us. So my recommendation? I am a Fairmont kinda gal and usually stay at Fairmont Hotels but found the Westin to be just fine - Go for it!!!
A few weeks ago, I was booked into the Westin Edmonton for a week as I opened a new office in town. I had notified the front desk in advance that I was expecting a number of courier packages during the week. Upon check-in, I asked if any packages had arrived. I was told "no". I checked two to three times each day at the desk. On the fourth day, when I called down I was told that two packages had arrived and would be sent up to my room right away. It took 3 calls and over an hour for them to be delivered. It was only after I checked out that I discovered two packages had been delivered the morning I arrived. The hotel lost the internally. When notified by phone, it took three hours for the packages to be found.
Hotel employees use this hotel as a pickup point. Stay away from the bar unless you want a companion for the night.
Yes, it is a Westin. However, the hotel is a little dated and the food in the restaurants is mediocre at best. There are the heavenly beds and the heavenly shower. The only annoying thing is that they don't have full HVAC in the room. In the winter, it's heating only and in the summer, it's cooling only. It becomes a problem in the spring when the weather is warm but the room is still set for heating.
All rooms great
I stayed at the Westin Edmonton for 3 weekends in Jul 2004. Each room was great. (one in the new section was phenomenal)
Can't beat their heavenly bed. On the 4th weekend, I stayed at the Hotel Macdonald, which is a block away and has better views and lots of charm. However, I prefer the Westin.
Great for business stays
I have stayed at the Westin a number of times while on business in Edmonton and have always found it pleasant. The staff are wonderful, the location is convenient to the office of downtown and the LRT system, and the breakfast downstairs is wonderful. I have stayed in both regular rooms and club floor rooms, and both are spacious with comfortable beds. A very pleasant hotel overall.
An easy choice
I travel to Edmonton on business a couple of times a year and always stay at the Westin. It is a very comfortable hotel in the typical Westin fashion. Rates are competitive and location excellent. Restaurants are a little weak but there are a number of decent reataurants close-by.
Traditional rooms are very good
The staff can't be faulted here. I stay at this hotel every 2 months and the traditional rooms are very nice, all equiped with the heavenly bed. Ask for a river view on a higher floor and you will not be dissapointed. The only flaw I have with this property is that despite being a gold starwood guest I have never been offered an upgrade. The soundproofing is good, the shower is nice, the beds are great, always a sound nights sleep here.
