Hotel near the Univ. of Alberta needed

My husband and I are taking my son to the U of A for a couple of days to do a campus visit. We are then going to Calgary for a couple of days....probably on the Red Arrow.

As we have never been to Edmonton before, would you recommend staying by the UofA to get the feel of the community (is there one??) or would it be advisable to stay in another location?

I was also wondering the same question for Calgary, too.

Do we need to have a car in either city ?

Thanks for your help!

Hi there,

We decided on the Mettera as the area sounded interesting, too. I'll post a review upon our return.

Thanks for your help!

I would stay at the Matrix downtown and take the train. It is really nice place with a Starbucks and great restaurant next door.

The Varscona on whyte ave. Offers free breakfast as well. Nice boutique hotel.
