“Do you have one of those 24 hour, nine to five jobs that doesn’t include vacations? What better way to turn a business trip into a mini vacation with the family than a drive up to Edmonton. The Sutton Place is ideally situated downtown, close to shops, restaurants and transportation- while you are at work, your family can spend the day enjoying our capital city. Wood paneling throughout the hotels’ lobby and rooms, and the courteous service make the hotel seem homier than a high rise might suggest. Upon our arrival into the business class hotel, an hors d’oeuvre welcome platter awaited us. Batter fried shrimp, chicken wings, vegetables and a complimentary cocktail were just the snack for us (we were peckish from our road trip from Calgary). This was an inviting, satisfying welcome. After resting in our room for a few hours, we headed downstairs for supper. Our dinner at the cozy Central Park Lounge was lovely, next to the wood burning fireplace. The seared rack of lamb served with mashed potatoes and vegetables was a hearty Winter dinner that capped off our evening. Our comfortable room, equipped with working desk, two Queen sized beds and dining area were well suited to a makeshift office, and doubled as a living room space. In the morning, our continental breakfast featuring tea, coffee, orange juice, fruits, cereal and pastry was just enough to sustain us for our trip back to Calgary.”
