    The atmosphere is lovely. The rooms are terrific and the food is amazing. Terrific value. I would definitely stay there again and recommend the hotel when visiting for business or pleasure. It also very close to the university for those visiting U of A.

    A great find. Perfect service and accommodations. Great location. Excellent ambiance and food. A step back in time when service, care and comfort were the expectation of guests. Can't wait until we get to return.

    @ajeepgirl80 - Downtown is approximately 10-15 mins away. Uber and Lyft are heavily used, and can be very helpful when parking is at a premium due to special events.
