Edmonton’s Metterra Hotel of Whyte is ideal for staycation


Trendy boutique hotel on trendy Whyte Ave ideal for business travellers too!

EDMONTON, AB, Feb 4, 2014/ Troy Media/ – I live in Edmonton and enjoy the trendy urban neighbourhood of Old Strathcona, which is located south of the North Saskatchewan River across from the city centre.

So during a recent staycation I decided to try out the Mettera Hotel on Whyte Avenue. I was more than pleasantly surprised.

The Metterra on Whyte Hotel is a boutique hotel located smack-dab in the middle of Old Strathcona on the busy Whyte Avenue (82nd Ave) and surrounded by a good selection of bars, restaurants, coffee shops, gift shops, book and clothing stores and live entertainment venues. If you didn’t know the hotel was there, you might miss it as it can easily get lost in the sea of retail signage in the area.

Getting Power? Plug Alive will tell you

plugalive3D front single-2

When it’s -30c, the last thing you want to do is plug and pray. You plug in your car’s block heater at night and pray that it will start the next morning. That’s because we usually plug in on blind faith. Sometimes we might go as far as touching the prongs to the block heater’s cord and listen for that little scratching sparking noise to see if there is power, which is not very convenient or scientific, eh?


People lined up overnight for iPhone 4S

michaiphoneThe magic of the iPhone continues, as people like Misha Hlebnicov, 17, are still willing to line up over night to be one of the first to get their hand on the new iPhone 4S. Despite the critics who were disappointed that the new model was not an iPhone 5, pre-orders of over 1 million units in the first 24 hours seemed to tell the tale and the long queue at the Apple Store at Southgate Mall in Edmonton are proof positive that the iPhone 4S is yet another winner.
