Where to Stay
In downtown central Edmonton you’ll find astounding architecture, from intricate older homes to fun restaurants. South Edmonton has many businesses, dining hotspots, shopping, golf, and skiing opportunities. You’ll find convenient commuter routes and major provincial highway access in this area. If you’re visiting Northlands Agricom or catching an Eskimos game at Commonwealth Stadium (home of the Canadian Football League), check out north Edmonton. For shopping at West Edmonton Mall or convenient access to the airport, west Edmonton is your best bet. The suburbs of Sherwood Park and Fort Saskatchewan are within a 30 minute drive of downtown Edmonton hotels, each offering unique experiences of their own. Stay in Spruce Grove or Stony Plain hotels for close proximity to TransAlta Tri Leisure Centre, Fuhr Sports Park, Glenn Hall Arena, or the Horizon Stage Performing Arts Centre.

Just over six miles (10 kilometers) from south Edmonton, airport shuttles to downtown are available at affordable prices.
