The room is done up with a period theme but all the furnishings are modern made to look have a 1920s feel. The room is very basic - it has a coffee maker (we were hoping for a microwave too but made due).
Our favorite part was being able to stroll through Fort Edmonton Park after all the crowds have gone home for the day. The building are locked up but the streets give you a sense of walking through the time period (1885, 1905, 1920). There are some animals on the grounds as well and we enjoyed watching them as well.
