Hotel on/ v. close to Whyte ave?


We usually stay at the Metterra, but last time it was super noisy. Looking for something spotless, family friendly, and near Whyte ave with close access to Stollery for a 3 night stay. Thanks :)

I've only ever stayed in two hotels in town here prior to moving here, plus I don't know the details of many others, especially those close to Whyte Ave.

As for having close access to the Stollery, i would ask the hospital family admin for assistance in selecting a place. I think they would have better choices at hand.

In addition to the Metterra and Varscona boutique hotels which are both on Whyte Ave, there's also the newish Days Inn a short distance (0.8km) to the south.

The latter is a bit over 2km from the University campus and where I think the Stollery is. Walking distance perhaps. The other two would be closer.

There is also the Campus Tower Suite Hotel right next to the U of A campus, a five minute walk to the Stollery. It's a couple of kilometers from the main attractions of Whyte Ave.

I stayed at the Varscona last spring and would definitely go back. The room was nice, rates reasonable and they have nice touches like free valet parking. (Starbucks in the lobby is a plus for me, too.) I would take advantage of the free hotel parking and use a quick cab ride over to the Stollery (unless you like to walk - it would be around 15-20 minutes)

you could also consider a hotel downtown and it's a short (5 minutes) train ride to the hospital.
