I was disappointed with our experience at the Selkirk Hotel. I understand that the hotel was built in a different Era of time but generally we come to expect certain amenities in a hotel these days. For one example there was no TV in our room. Also no wifi was available. Our room rate did allow us to visit Ft.... More

Hi there, thanks for your honest review. All of our hotel rooms include admission to the Park during the summer season, perhaps you came during the off-season in which case the living history museum is closed. We understand WiFi connection could be improved (but is available) and the team is working on a solution to make it more reliable for... More

We attended a wedding inside the park so decided to stay in the Selkirk for convenience. It was obviously off season so there wasn't a lot open other than the theatre but the park was beautiful after an early season snowfall the day we arrived.

The poor score I gave is based on the customer service I received at the front desk....or lack thereof to be more accurate.

On a whim I decided to stay at the Selkirk at Ft. Edmonton. The fort has been built over the decades, and the Selkirk was one of the historic buildings moved there and "modernized."

We stayed at the Selkirk Hotel in Fort Edmonton Park as we were attending the wedding of a niece. It was an excellent choice. Very quiet. Very close to the Blatchford Hanger, where the wedding was held. The king size bed was very comfortable.

An opportunity to stay in the heart of Edmonton at the living museum Fort Edmonton in a 1920's themed Hotel was a no brainer given the inexpensive rate and park passes included.
