Stay at one of our Edmonton hotels to be close to the city’s frontier attractions and West Edmonton Mall. West Ed, as the locals call it, is not just the largest mall in North America; it’s a multipurpose shopping and entertainment complex.
Explore Alberta’s easygoing capital from the comfort of our hotels in Edmonton. Even if shopping is not on your agenda, West Edmonton Mall offers plenty of diversions for visitors. Kids will find hours of playtime in the mall’s amusement rides, waterpark, ice rink and aquarium. Don’t miss Fort Edmonton Park, Canada’s largest living-history museum. From May through Labor Day, costumed guides, historical reenactments and old-fashioned steam-train rides bring to life the city’s rough-and-tumble frontier past. From our Edmonton hotels it’s easy to zip downtown on Edmonton’s fast and economical light-rail transit. Budding naturalists can spend hours at the Royal Alberta Museum, just west of downtown, where the region’s wild world is imaginatively highlighted in lifelike dioramas. Bugs get the star treatment at the museum, which holds one of Canada’s largest collections of bees and wasps. Admission is half-price on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
From our hotels in Edmonton, you can take part in Edmonton’s lively year-round calendar events. ‘Festival City’ has some 30 festivals annually, ranging from music and dance to theater and family fun. Many of the top events, including the acclaimed Fringe Theatre Festival, take place in and around the Old Strathcona and Whyte Avenue districts. It’s a great place to dine year-round, where you can savor international cuisine at the latest ethnic hot spot or order a brew and burger at a friendly pub.
Book a room at our Holiday Inn® Edmonton hotels for year-round festivals and easy access to the city’s exciting shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities.
