I visit Edmonton a few times per year to spend time with family and friends. Whenever I need a place to stay downtown, my go-to Marriott hotel to book is the Courtyard Edmonton Downtown.
While it’s not the flashiest option available, and it certainly doesn’t compare to the JW Marriott Edmonton ICE District in terms of luxury, it’s a great spot to choose for a balance of location, value, and nice views.
Courtyard Edmonton Downtown – Booking
On my most recent visit, I took advantage of the ongoing Edmonton’s Best Hotels promotion to book a three-night stay. The total cost of the room, inclusive of taxes and fees, came out to around $450 (CAD), or an average of $150 (CAD) per night.
The day after I checked in, I received a $225 prepaid Mastercard by email as part of the promotion, which I then applied to the balance at check-out. This reduced the total cost of the stay to just $225 (CAD) for three nights, or just $75 (CAD) per night, which is an absolute bargain.
Regular cash rates at the hotel fall at around $150 (CAD) throughout the year, with prices dropping to $95 (CAD) at the lower end and rising to upwards of $300 (CAD) during periods of high demand.
If you’re looking to redeem Marriott Bonvoy points for a stay, expect to pay around 11,000–16,000 points per night.
When pitted against our valuation of Bonvoy points at 0.9 cents per point, you’ll almost always be better off paying cash, especially through Edmonton’s Best Hotels.
