Coast Edmonton Plaza Hotel
It's OK Ive seen Better.........
HI I’m a flight attendant for an international airline from the US. I stay at hundreds of hotels a year. This hotel is semi dated. The room furniture is very basic compared to a Fairfield Inn to say! The a/c unit is really dated. If I was personally paying I would only pay about 60-70 US a night. The wait staff i.e. maids & room service do not speak English. They are Indian, which is ok! I did have an issue with both maids and room service not understanding basic question such as “can you take my trash”. Drapes are horrible and not much to do in the surrounding area unless you want to take a bus. I would personally recommend a different hotel unless you have no other option!

Great location, great staff and a clean room=?
A great stay!
Love this place. At the heart of Edmonton DT. Super friendly and helpful staff.
Room is clean and spacious (especially considering the price I paid!) .
The gym and pool are a bit pathetic, but seriously, you cannot ask for that much when you pay under $100 in a downtown area.

Unclean, gross, out-dated
Unclean, gross, out-dated rooms, bad area of town. Would never stay here again. I slept in my clothes.
Room was dusty and dirty. Hand/finger prints on the headboard, something gross splattered on the lamp next to bed.

We were in town for a workshop, so this hotel was chosen for us. I agree with many of the reviewers – it’s odd to have giant bottles of shampoo, lotion and body wash that are refilled every time a guest checks out (there are tiny bottles as well), and yes, some of the furniture was a bit worn. But we have stayed in a lot of mid-priced hotels lately, and this one was very good in comparison. The renovation didn’t affect us at all. Our room was on the 11th floor. It was clean and comfortable, with just a mini fridge and coffee pot. Staff was very kind at check in, and the restaurant staff couldn’t have been nicer. Free wifi was very much appreciated. I would recommend making sure that the breakfast buffet is included in your room rate. The cost is $15.95/person, and while it’s a pretty extensive and well prepared buffet, it can be a bit pricey for two people if you’re staying more than one night. (There are plenty of Tim Horton’s nearby too.) We did not have a car, but I did hear people complaining about the cost of parking in the garage. There is an open lot across the street that was cheaper. The area seemed safe – we walked to the Edmonton City Centre mall and to a grocery store with no trouble at all. The bar/restaurant in the hotel was open for dinner, so we ate there a few times. The food was good and reasonably priced, so there was no reason to go anywhere else. There was a pool, whirlpool and sauna in the same area as the fitness center. This was the only place I’ve ever seen a rowing machine along with the usual treadmills and elipticals. If we ever find ourselves in Edmonton again, we would definitely consider staying here.
I am not going to say much due to the hotel undergoing a renovation, good thing too. So anything I say about the issues I would have will be mute in a couple of weeks (hopefully).
I will say that the staff at the hotel is very friendly, everyone I encountered, so that is a plus. They have single serve (2) Starbucks in the room, what baffles me is why serve such a nice coffee, then have substandard condiments, they type I would expect in a Mom & Pop Motel.
The beds were very comfortable, and the room was clean and comfortable. Not knowing what else to expect, but from what I have read in other reviews, there was no Safe, no Microwave, but I did have a mini-fridge. For those that liked the full size bath supplies, for me, I do not feel safe with them, who knows what the person before you put into the bottle. Wasn’t an issue for me as I did not get any in my room, just the standard travel size items.
Mostly all I have to say to anyone staying here in the next few weeks be aware that there is renovation going on. If you stay here after the renovation, DISREGARD all the previous comments as most will be obsolete.
