Showing our support for the Kids With Cancer Society
At Hotels on Whyte (Metterra Hotel and the Varscona Hotel), our hotel staff work very closely with the patient office of the Kids with Cancer Society. The hotel opens their doors to families travelling to Edmonton with their children for cancer treatment. Hotels on Whyte offers a special hotel rate for families and provides extra special care for the guests and their families during their stay. Pat Smith, Sales Manager for Hotels on Whyte, has many personal connections with the families and always strives to go the extra mile for them. “It’s a challenging time in their lives and it’s important to us to make it easier for them.”
One of the hotel’s corporate account clients has also generously provided the hotel with boxes of toys to support the Kids with Cancer Society. The client purchased the toys with funds from their social club and they were very happy to provide them to Hotels on Whyte to share with the children who stay there. The hotel always writes a personal note to the patient and ensures that a toy is waiting for them in their room when they arrive at the hotel!
