Historical Traveller Reviews of Matrix Hotel Edmonton

Some 4 star - some not

from heanst
I don't know if I would give this hotel 4 stars but it was nice. It is downtown and about 20 minute from West Ed. Included breakfast is quite nice (comparable to Hampton Inn) and make your own coffee drinks. Wasn't able to attend wine tasting so don't know what it is like.
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 hotel

from kudra23
As a teacher marking twice a year in Edmonton, finding a reasonable hotel downtown presents a challenge. I have stayed at this property years ago when it was the terrible Inn on 7th, the renovations have completely changed this address. The matrix provides excellent accomodation at very reasonable government rates with proof of government employment.

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!!

Within 5 seconds of walking into the MATRIX i had this thought, "this is amazing!!" The staff were fabulous, informative and treated us very well. The rooms were stunning and very easy to relax in. I have stayed in many hotels and the MATRIX hotel experience was by far the best!

A really great stay!

from tessopher
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a night out, and we stayed at the Matrix. It’s fantastic modern décor really set the tone for our stay the moment we walked in. We were greeted by very friendly and efficient staff, and were off to our room (we had the “sterling suite”).

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!

Perfect!

from Hotelagent007
The decor is amazingly modern in the lobby and the rooms!

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.

Totally impressed.

Great Boutique Hotel

from Nathaniels_Uncle
We stayed for the weekend of May 16 and got a super deal on the room.

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 pricey

from peanut11Alberta
Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights, front desk service was good, room was very clean and decorated nicely. The bed was very comfortable, and having satellite TV in your room was a nice tough. The A/C - heating system was a bit noisy, BUT that ended up being a good thing to have on as it muffled all the noise that was coming from across the hall from us. In my opinion the doors on the rooms all need to be changed, they are very loud and slam everytime someone enters or exits their room. I also think that they could have sound proofed the rooms a bit better, as you can hear everything in the hallway (at all hours of the night) The "sliding" bathroom door in the deluxe room are awful as well, I think they designed them to be "unique" and space efficient but in my opinion they are terrible. They allow for no privacy, as there is a 3" gap from the ceiling to where the door begins - something similar to the top half of a bathroom stall door.
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 Service

from Fussy80
Currently sitting in the lobby and nice atmosphere. After reading previous reviews was a bit nervous about staying here, but the only negative is the bathroom doors on the Deluxe King room. They definitely need improvement. We checked in quickly and efficiently and stayed one night in the deluxe king room. The next morning we were upgraded (at no extra charge) to a Sterling Suite. The suites are very nice and quite a bit more room than the Deluxe. Continental breakfast adequate in the mornings. We got the introductory rate, but I don't know if I would pay the $400.00 they are quoting after this month. Apparently if you are a governnment employee, you get a great deal at this hotel. Soundproofing could be a bit better. We could hear our neighbors tv at 4:00 a.m. one morning. Kept very clean (I am very particular about cleanliness) and with it being a new hotel, carpets and walls still fresh.

Has potential, teething pains

from OJonVacation
For anyone who is doing lots of business travel to Edmonton these days, it is known that a good hotel under $200 is virtually unheard of anymore in this town. The prices have risen astronomically and there is not much choice. And if you don't book more than 2-3 wks ahead, there usually is no room.
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 good

from Carlton79
I was booked into this brand new hotel for three nights. Checkin was good and very friendly. The room was small and rather coldly decorated. The heating was very noisy and did not work well, so the room was cold and did not heat up, which was not good, as it must have been about -20C outside. I couldn't get the Internet access to work. To cap it all, I found out that there was no restaurant or room service. Eating options were a takeaway pizza. Maybe this place will be better once they open their restaurant, but all of these things taken together did not add up to a pleasant experience.

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.
