The Metterra Hotel is a tremendous spot to stay for a weekend get away. It is conveniently located on Whyte Avenue so it is accessible to downtown, Calgary Trail, and the university. During our recent stay we enjoyed friendly and helpful staff, efficient valet service and a nicely appointed room. Although the room had no view it was recommended that we ask for one that was located at the back of the hotel to stay away from White Ave which can be noisy on the weekend. It was a quiet location and perhaps next time we might try for a bit of a view by requesting a room on one of the upper floors - I believe the hotel is 6 or 7 floors.
A comfortable lounge accommodates guests for a continental style breakfast overlooking the lobby. The breakfast was a selection of cereals, grains, fruit; only one improvement -better coffee. At the end of the day you can enjoy a complimentary wine and cheese- very nice wines!
We normally stay at the Union Bank Inn but as it was full and the tripadvior reviews of the Met were very positive we tried something new. It will be a difficult choice next time as we like both hotels.
