Edmonton has been featured as one of National Geographic’s Best Summer Trips in 2015.   The best part of the story?  Westcorp’s very own Metterra Hotel is featured as the place to stay in Edmonton!

 The article quotes “The 98-room Metterra Hotel on Whyte is located in the historic Old Strathcona neighborhood, home to an eclectic collection of restaurants, bars, and boutiques, and site of the Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival (August 13-23). The hotel’s design incorporates natural elements (earth, water, fire, and air) and promotes sustainability. In 2015, Metterra became the largest hotel in Canada to be fully powered by clean, pollution-free electricity. Rates include breakfast and wine tasting (daily except Sundays).”    Other North American destinations on the list are Sedona, Arizona and Philadelphia, Penn.  Previous Canadian destinations that have made the list include BC’s Great Bear Rainforest, Ontario’s cottage country and Cape Breton Island.

Now the world will know what we at Westcorp already know.  Edmonton is a wonderful place to be in the summer time !
