My Choice in Sherwood Park
Wonderful Experience. Third visit to the hotel this year, this time with family. Kids enjoyed their stay. My wife and kids were extended a very special treatment by the hotel manager. The Check in was fast and staff helpful. Though the restaurant was closed for renovation. Overall a very good experience.

I had stayed in this hotel recently for 4 days and thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality. It is currently under minor renovations as they are transitioning in to Holiday Inn. Rooms are spacious. The restaurant is changing over too during the transition, however they are other eateries within few kilometres.
The banquet facilities are phenomenol and the food is scrumptious.
Needless to say, the staff is incredible that go over and beyond the call of duty to take care of you.
I cannot wait to see them transition the brand and have their onsite restaurant in business.
Apparently it’s being re-branded soon as Holiday Inn. I hope that means that the hotel will get better. It’s quite empty, given it’s location in booming Edmonton. The huge lobby is not at all welcoming. Breakfast has a bad selection of cereal and a broken toaster served in a dingy room in the basement. The main floor of the hotel was quite dirty. The restaurant is closed.
The one good point is that it’s right next to Millennium Place, so it’s easy to go swimming or have a good workout. It’d be a perfect location for teams coming for activity at Millennium Place.
Internet speed was decent. And the rooms are VERY quiet – I think because there aren’t many people staying I the hotel.
Pick another hotel in Sherwood Park
Large Hotel, and may be good for weddings or large gatherings but that is all! that’s if you get outside caterers in. Very large lobby/reception but empty and unwelcoming with just a few chairs dotted around. Rooms reasonable size and bed reasonable as well. Bathroom not very clean and cleaners must have been used to cleaning port holes in a submarine as no corners where clean what so ever. Bottles in bathroom /shampoo and stuff large and one was snapped in half dribbling a mess. The shower is fitted at the height for a midget! about 4’6 up the wall, so kids could wash there hair but adults it breaks your back. The toilet while worked fine rocked back and forwards when you used it. It was advertised as having an onsite restaurant and bar, when I went it had shut down so had to travel to eat out every night. The last thing I want to do after working all day is to drive round looking for somewhere to eat and cannot have a beer for driving. They only do breakfast Monday to Friday, so when I arrived on Saturday was told to go find somewhere else and receptionist could not recommend anywhere. The breakfasts are horrendous though, not worth trying to find the room. It also stated it had its own small gym, as well as the one attached down a dingy corridor, the millennium place. I walked round outside to this gym as the hotel one was utter crap. Basement gym unused this year by the looks of it. Dirty and very dusty and I had to plug the machines in. no air con turned on and ceiling tiles broken and hanging down. the weights machine was broken. so pay to use the millennium place gym if you want to use one. millennium place is fantastic though. the lifts I used to the north wing were dirty and the floors sticky. Best western not far away so I would look there instead if stopping at Sherwood park again. Maid service was around 5pm when I got back in and was trying to get changed, and she took around 2 minutes to do everything.

Great Wedding Reception Venue!
My husband and I recently held our wedding reception in the Empire Ballroom of The Coast Edmonton East Hotel located in Sherwood Park, Alberta. We were very pleased with the overall outcome. The staff were fantastic to work with. The food and beverage manager, Victor Thiru was absolutely amazing and was happy to accommodate any issues that came up as the wedding planning took place. Our only complaint was the head table was plated their dinner….and unfortunately our meal was quite dry from what I believe was the result of being held under heat lamps for too long. The guests however enjoyed their meal (served buffet style) and had no complaints. The honeymoon suite was beyond beautiful. I would highly recommend this hotel to any bride/groom in search of a reception venue.
