Historical Traveller Reviews of Matrix Hotel Edmonton
Some 4 star - some notfrom heanst
Room was quite nice looking. Beds and linens above quality which I would expect in a 4 star. Sliding barn type bathroom door - may as well been a curtain for its noise seperation ability. Hallway noise quite loud in the middle of the night. Also had fire engines report to a local alarm response which was very loud in the room.
Nice and competant staff. Free parking in back lot.
Beautiful boutique hotelfrom kudra23
The rooms are beautifully appointed in a contemporary style, complete with HD TV in each room. The satellite TV can be difficult for those who are electronically challenged, but the management staff is quick with assistance. Each room has a small refrigerator, and the bathrooms are equipped with many extra amenities like cotton swabs, hair dryer etc...
Breakfast is balanced and excellent. Hot food is maintained even during a very busy morning with a full hotel. The self serve Latte machine was all the rage. The wine and cheese each evening is a nice touch.
I have stayed in almost all of the hotels in downtown Edmonton, and this is the finest.
Absolutely Fabulous!!from i_travel14
A really great stay!from tessopher
Room was great, ultra-modern, great accents. If you like the modern look you will love this hotel! The suite has an almost-kitchenette with a microwave, fridge and sink, and a great little breakfast ‘bar’ that we ate a nice dinner at. Very nice original art – much better than your standard ‘prints’ at a lot of hotels.
The bed was comfy, plush bedding, and a quality firm mattress. Standard hotel pillows.
Bathroom is great. The suite has a bath/shower and a dividing wall for the toilet. Good size, nicely lit. The shower was very cosy – dual shower heads was a nice touch.
I’ve read some comments that the tv remotes (think they were called “Harmony” remotes) were confusing – however I found them just fine. It was a one button push to get both the tv and satellite on, and I never had a problem with them. TV selection was great. Bose alarm clock in the bedroom was a nice surprise.
Although we’ve heard good things about it, we didn’t have a chance to eat at the Wildflower, but did visit the Starbucks which is *right* next door :)
The wine and cheese was a great way to start our evening, and the wine was very nice, not top shelf, but much better than expected considering the included price.
Breakfast was fabulous. A nice spread that would be criminal to call ‘continental’. It was classy, with a lot of fresh healthy foods - an awesome hot egg dish, quality yogurt with muslix, and some delish melt-in-your-mouth croissants. Lots more stuff but those were my favs.
I browsed a couple of the other reviews on here don’t understand a lot of the complaints. I know that the Matrix is quite new and they must have ironed out all the bugs between some of these other stays and mine because I do not have a single thing to complain about. This is one high end hotel that was worth every penny!
Service was very good!
The wine and cheese in the evening was a great bonus but the most amazing part was the breakfast in the morning, not only did they serve coffee that tasted like coffee you could have an espresso or cappuccino to go.
Great Boutique Hotelfrom Nathaniels_Uncle
This is a great hotel - lobby and rooms are nicely appointed, the toiletries are nice, the towels are fluffy and the bed is really comfortable.
Complementary breakfast was nice with cereals, fruits, yoghurt, breads and hot quiches.
The bonus was the happy hour wine tasting from 5:30 complete with cheese, crackers, chips, salsa.
The only negative is that the satellite TV didn't work despite repeated calls to the front desk and repeated visits from hotel staff who couldn't fix it.
A bit priceyfrom peanut11Alberta
The fitness room was awesome, I really enjoyed being able to work out in a well equipped room. There is 3 new Life Fitness cardio machines as well as plenty of free weights, mats, yoga balls, bosu balls, a weight station in the corner and 2 flat screen TV's (satellite)The fitness room is also well stocked with towels and bottled water - a great touch!
Their continental breakfast and wine and cheese were very good, and had a good variety. The location of this hotel is perfect, as you are literally only a few steps from Jasper and a block from the Legislature grounds (building)
Other than the noise the cost of staying there on a weekday(195.00) and the odd bathroom doors this hotel is good!
Good Servicefrom Fussy80
Has potential, teething painsfrom OJonVacation
I like Boutique hotels, so I thought to give this new place a try. They have an introductory rate of $150 in February which is an amazing deal, well under what else you can get in this area and in this quality. The rate will increase to $190 once the gym gets finished.
The hotel is a bit cold and stark and it is obviously designed by men. The mirrors in the room are dark and there is no obvious place to put makeup on. The heating is very loud and overall the lighting is not optimal. The thing that was driving me and other colleagues staying there bonkers was the satellite TV. Even when I followed the detailed instructions provided in the room, I was not able to operate it properly and found it incredibly frustrating. On the plus side, location is fabulous (right downtown, Wildflower restaurant next door is AMAZING), the rooms are a good size and have stylish decor, bathrooms have good amenities and bed and pillows comfortable. The service is very friendly and efficient. Free continental breakfast and wine & cheese in the pm are nice additions to the stay.
Not very goodfrom Carlton79
Top Local Tips for Edmonton
The edmonton transit systems is awful Rent a car! You will need it to get around efficiently. If you are flying in, most good hotels will have a pick up service from the airport, and if you are staying right downtown and don't really want to leave downtown then getting around by bus or walking will be fine. But if you want to check out West Edmonton Mall, or one of the many festivals that happen around the city, ect, ect, you will want a car because the bus system is slow and complicated (you have to back-track lots to catch a connection) and the LRT (light rail transit) only reaches to a few select spots. Taxis are easy to find at the airport and around the bars on Whyte and Jasper ave at night, but otherwise you'll have to call for a pick up... and they are quite pricey. Rent a car!
1905 sports bar This is such a friendly, great place for a drink and decent food. Go there you won't be disappointed.
Rental cars may be cheaper than taxis from the airport, but beware parking $$ Edmonton's airport is a LONG way from downtown (about 25 kilometres). Taxis can be expensive, so a rental car might be a good option. But if you do rent a car, keep in mind that Edmonton has some very expensive downtown parking prices!!! First timers (and even repeaters like me) can also find the city's layout confusing for driving, as the river valley slices the region in half and direct "ways through" the valley aren't always so intuitive.
