"Awesome view of North Saskatchewan River Valley and Riverfront Park. Easy walk to downtown. Great host."
"This is a must place to stay in Edmonton if you want a great condo with a fantastic view and a very convenient downtown location... We never rent a car when we travel, so the ability to walk to quality restaurants and as many tourist spots as possible is highly important to us. This condo fit the bill on all accords. The kitchen with its granite countertops is huge, the adjustable couch/sofa bed is quite comfortable, and the unique circular/enclosed shower was a hit for all of us… The fact that the condo was only a 5 minute walk to where our Segway tour originated, which was a blast, was extremely convenient."
