The Metterra boutique hotel’s cool designer vibe is centred around the four earth elements — wood, water, air and fire.
Each room features at least one, and I was lucky enough to have a luxury suite with all four: sleek wood furniture, a fireplace, a jetted soaker tub plus shower with jets, as well as two patios bringing in the sunshiny air.
The hotel is beautiful and full of real art, and the staff are kind and thoughtful. There’s lots included in your room rate: valet parking, fast wifi, a surprisingly big breakfast, all-day fresh fruit and machine-made coffees, wine and cheese, a fitness room and a business centre (both open 24 hours).
The hotel opened in 2004 (though it is hard to tell) and has 98 rooms.
Guest rooms are outfitted for comfort and style and are perfect for a couple’s retreat, a holiday, or if you’re here on business. Every room has little extras that make your stay great, like a fridge, iHome docking station, Keurig coffees, crisp linens, wall-to-wall windows and sliding doors, and (how rare!) a well-lit bathroom mirror.
The Metterra is right on Whyte Ave and encompasses the cool vibe of Edmonton’s hippest street. Staff give well-informed and personally-tested recommendations to the best restaurants, bars, nightlife and shopping near by.
You won’t be disappointed with a stay at the Metterra!
